The south-west coast of Tenerife is a truly outstanding location for the observation of free-living whales as there are colonies of pilot whales and dolphins which remain here throughout the year. They live so close to the coast that Tenerife has become the most important place in Europe for the number of persons who carry out free-living-whale-watching.
You can find up to twenty-one different species in these waters from the giant blue whale to the frightening killer whale. There are two resident populations, the pilot whale and the bottlenose dolphin, which can be observed on perhaps 80% of the days of the year, with a sighting percentage of close to 100%.
An opportunity that you should not allow to slip through your fingers as there are few locations on Earth which offer this wide range at such a tiny distance from your hotel. Half a million people who visit our whales each year can’t be wrong.
