What you'll do

You will have a unique opportunity to look at the island of Tenerife from the ocean, enjoy the magnificent view of the cliffs, swim in the crystal clear water of the bays of La Caleta, and even fish. There will also be a great opportunity to observe the fascinating life of whales living in this part of the coast of Tenerife. On the Barco 33, we will leave the port of Puerto Colon and head towards La Gomera, where we will get to know the life of the local whale pilots and dolphins, which you will not find anywhere else but these places. Then we turn abruptly to the north and throw an anchor in the bay of La Caleta or El Puertito. You can swim and dive in the crystal clear water and swim among exotic fish, and sometimes even turtles. Here you will be able to fish as well, because where else but in the Atlantic Ocean you will find such a quantity and variety of marine fauna. After that, along the southern coast of the island, we will take you to the land, where you will be waited by friendly owners of local cafes and beautiful photos of your trip. (It is possible to order private charter.)
Other things to note
If you know that you are swayed in the water, it is better to take care of this by taking the medicine (about 1 hour before going to the ocean), or a bracelet against sea sickness. (Sold in local pharmacies).
It is possible to book private charter (only you on board).

I am the founder of Ojoi Sõit! Co., as well as Barco 33, and I am one of the few guides who can acquaint you with the life of whale pilots (grindas) and dolphins living in the southern part of Tenerife. For a long time i was engaged in sea excursions on the Baltic Sea and in the Gulf of Tallinn, observing the life of seals. Since, in my opinion, I have accumulated a large amount of knowledge in this area, I decided to diversify and increase my activity and take up observation of the fauna of the Atlantic. I have been doing this for more than six yoers, for which I managed to accumulate a lot of experience.

Where you'll be

Since access to the ocean is limited, only we can help you if you have a desire to enjoy the life of whale pilots (grindа) and dolphins. At our disposal is a beautiful, modern boat Barco 33, which will help you to go with us into the ocean and see what is almost impossible to see!

Ruslan was super kind and helpful, he had prepared sandwiches and snacks for us for when we arrived. We went out to sea and saw so many dolphins and a huge 18 metre whale which was very rare! We also saw a few pilot whales so close to the boat! The dolphins followed us and played at the front of the boat! We then went and swam in a beautiful beach cove with turquoise water and drank some wine. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone looking to visit Tenerife!

We had an amazing time with Ruslan on his boat. He's a very welcoming and friendly host -we felt comfortable from the beginning. After around 30minutes we spotted the first whales. It was amazing, they were right next to us (I even got a selfie with the whale lol). We went snorkeling in a bay afterwards which was quite nice and on our way back we even spotted two big turtles. Ruslan told us about everything we were curious about - thanks again for this amazing experience! We highly recommend this trip 👌
