Kayaking + snorkeling with turtles

Arona, Spain

Experience hosted by Marcin Andrzej

3.5 hours
Includes transportation
Up to 10 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

First, we start preparing in the school: we choose life vests and boots, I give you a briefing to explain how to manage the kayaks, get on and out of the kayaks, swim with masks and snorkels. Then we start the tour from the beach of Los Cristianos. I will accompany you during the whole experience. We head to PalmMar cliffs that impress visitors with their beauty. We make a stop for snorkeling in the place where lovely marine turtles live. We spend 30 minutes snorkeling and observe the underwater life from the surface. Except for turtles, you are going to see varied species of fish, rays and others. These are truely emotional moments when you watch marine inhabitants in their natural surroundings. After that, we continue kayaking to enjoy splendid views, perfect Canarian weather and hopefully an encounter with dolphins that are so numerous in the area that we see them pretty often. After 2 hours tour we return to the beach where we started.
Other things to note
You do not need any previous experience. Kids from 6 to 10 years old go for free on the same kayak with parents and do not raw. To make a reservation, please book adults and send me a note about kids

The kayak tour starts in Los Cristianos, the most famous touristic area in Tenerife. In about 30 minutes we reach gorgeous PalmMar rocks that are standing by the ocean. This area has spectacular views and rich life both underwater and on the surface.

Our guide was lively, knowledgeable, and attentive. He made sure everyone was safe and having a good time. We were able to see dolphins break water so close to us. We snorkeled and saw fish in the most amazingly clear and blue water. They picked us up and dropped us off at our apartment.

Bonne prise en charge. Certain de voir des dauphins qui nagent autour des élevages de poissons. Pas trop loin à aller. Bonne explications. En revanche le lieu de plongée pour les tortues est interdit et protégé. Les autorités en bateau nous ont demandé de faire demi tour...

The tour is great. Marcin texted us right after the reservation with all necessary information. After a short introduction we went out to the fishfarm to look for dolphins (unfortunately we weren’t lucky - but remember, it’s wildlife :). We then went to the snorkeling spot where we found a huge turtle, all sorts of fish and finally a sting ray. Great experience to swim so close to these animals. Marcin is making photos and videos you can buy later (15€). So you can focus on enjoying the dive.

Whilst the Kayaking and snorkelling experience was carried out with expertise and safety as top priority, the snorkelling experience left a bit to be desired. The area snorkelling was carried out at a very crowded location too far away (I am reasonably fit but it wasn't a leisurely journey) with too many people and boats that meant I was constantly bumping into people. This was immediately after a tiring Kayaking journey together with an ill fitting mask and a constantly detaching snorkel (which I eventually lost.) Although I am reasonably fit, I found it difficult to the re-enter the Kayak but on my second attempt I was helped by Vesko but with such force that I heard a crack and since been informed that I crack a rib. Luckily it was my last day of my holiday as 5 days later I am still in pain. Next time I'd either Kayak or snorkel (I wished I'd taken my own snorkel that was a better fit and quality), not both.

De kayaktour was great! We have seen dolphins and we swom by a big turtle! It was really nice and the host is very friendly to the guests. He takes enough time to make it a unforgettable journey!

Na een uitvoerige uitleg en het uitkiezen van wetsuits en zwemjassen vertrokken we richting kust. Het was enorm leuk om te kajakken op zee! Ik zat samen met mijn man op de kajak waardoor het fysiek niet lastig was. We hebben dolfijnen gespot en bij een schildpad gezwommen. Een unieke ervaring!
