This exciting catamaran cruise off the coast of Tenerife gives you the chance to see groups of magnificent jet-black pilot whales, which often move in large numbers around the Canary Isles.
The crew on board your catamaran will tell you all about the lives and habits of these creatures, which are in fact not a whale but a type of dolphin. Enjoy a gentle sea breeze and a kind Canarian sun as you take in stunning views of the coast.
One version of this tour also includes a 30-minute stop for swimming and snorkeling in a secluded natural bay.
