Description

When we invade the habitat of animals to watch or study them, are we aware of the impact we have on their lives? With this guided tourist-educational tour of the fauna living in the Atlantic waters of southern Tenerife, apart from watching marine species living in the area, you will enjoy learning about how to reduce their stress levels.

The tourist side of the guided tour

There are few places in the world capable of competing with the life teeming in the Tenerife waters that bathe its coasts. Departing from Puerto Colón, you will embark on a three-hour excursion and will meet whales, dolphins, birds, turtles and all kinds of fish species. And not only that: the technical team on the boat, including the marine biologist who accompanies you on the journey, will teach you how they communicate with each other.

The educational side

The stress levels marine species are subject to in their habitat because of boats are incredibly high, but there is another way of getting to know our marine environment and this excursion will teach you all about it. This boat is part of a larger sustainable purposes project. Participate in it by embarking on this ecological adventure and enjoy the marine fauna like never before.

You can have it all

The first part of the tour takes us into deep waters, where the biologist will talk about the marine life in the area, currents and the coast. We will then sail to Puertito de Armeñime, where you can have a swim and snorkel before having a snack and a drink, and heading back to Puerto Colón.

Mount Teide Cable Car

Amazing way to end a day from the top of a volcano

Seeing the sunset in a place near to the Teide's peak is one of the most amazing experiences you can live here. We had good luck because the visibility was incredible, so we saw more islands from the top, like La Gomera, La Palma and El Hierro. Im from Tenerife, this was the second time I booked for this experience. And I would do it again, and again. 100% recommended.
