Make friends with the dolphins
The Island is one of the world's best locations for whale and dolphin watching. They cruise along the coast some three miles from the shore and can be sighted 365 days a year. In fact, Tenerife is home to some twenty-one different species of cetaceans out of seventy-nine known species in the world. To see them up-close, all you have to do is sign up for an trip on one of the boats that set sail every day from the ports of Los Cristianos and Puerto Colón.
Most of the companies that organise these outings make a considerable effort to meet good quality standards and keep both their customers and the animals safe and happy. To pick the right one, make sure the company you book with flies a blue flag on its boats.
