We depart from Puerto Colón (Costa Adeje), located in the center of the Zec zone (area for the special conservation of cetaceans). We will go out to the open sea, normally about three miles far away from the coast, and it is enough to watch a lot of sea life (up to 29 species of cetaceans, 4 types of sea turtles and 11 types of seabirds), all surrounded by an incredible landscape. At the backgroung El Teide, which is the third highest volcano of the world. El Teide from its base is around
3.718m height. Along the way we collaborate collecting waste to conserve the marine environment. As a colofon we will anchor in an spectacular bay, La Caleta de Adeje, considered as a site of scientific interest, due to the wide variety of lavas, as well as endemic plants, and different seabirds. Over there, we will distribute snorkel equipment, and we will swim in its crystal clear water, eat and return to the harbour observing the coast and the mountains of Adeje.

I am an adventurous person, nature lover and sportman. I love travelling and I have done it almost in any way. I am a manager of an small family business, in which we are dedicated to the watching of Cetaceans and marine environment. The activity takes place on board of a sailing boat. This activity is developed since 2002 in Tenerife. I work with Maria, she is the sailor-guide, previously she worked in a tax office, and she did not doubt on changing radically the activity. She is adventurous, loves travelling, the sea, hiking, nature, exchange with other cultures. She is in love with her land and show this love to everybody by promoting it

The trip with Salvador was amazing! He’s a very passionate and knowledgeable about the ocean, all the animals living there and also about boats and sailing. We saw dolphins and whales and birds and went to a beautiful bay with the possibility for snorkeling. He prepared sandwiches for everyone and there were drinks available as well. He made sure everyone feels very comfortable on the boat and was always there for us. I was even allowed to be a co-captain for a little bit which was very exciting! I highly recommend this trip and also think it’s a great value for what is offered compared to other trips I went to. Salvador was also always very fast to respond to messages and made sure I understand where exactly the location is (which has been an issue with other organizers). Make sure you bring a lot of sunscreen if it’s sunny and a wind proof jacket if it’s not sunny.

Awesome trip and very nice storytelling. Salvador deeply cares about the animals (it’s amazing have them swimming next to the boat!) and ensures you have a nice experience. Make sure you bring something against seasickness though.

I had a great time with Salvador. Salvador was a fantastic host, very knowledgeable and accommodating. We found the dolphins & whales and the boat ride itself was a lovely way to chill and enjoy the scenery.

Just WOW! This was my first experience with Airbnb Activities and it was way better than expected! If you like to have a personal guide which knows all about the sea life, which knows best where the wales and dolphines are book this trip with Salvador. We saw a group of wales, a large group of dolphines and spot a trutle! All with no rush in peace with mother nature. This is the way every one should experience nature - way better than on a overfilled touri-boat .... Salvador you made us smile for 3h! Thank you! Best Michèle and Raphael

Great day. Everything was perfect. We were very lucky with the whales swimming close to the boat and great weather. Salvador is extremely welcoming and quite passionate about nature. He has lot of knowledge not only about cetaceans, but about wildlife , geology, history. It was very interesting to hear him talk about the Canary Islands in general. Hans was also super nice and friendly. The boat was comfortable and clean, we had lovely lunch and drinks. Highly recommended!
