What to see during a boat trip in Tenerife?

Leave from the south-western coast to look for whales and dolphins in their natural habitat. If you leave from Puerto Colón you will probably see whales.

The coastline of Tenerife is very interesting, and some spots are particularly fascinating. Once arrived in Los Gigantes, you can venture along the pathway which will lead you to the mysterious town of Masca, an authentic jewel of the Canary Islands. You can also visit one of the minor islands of the archipelago, such as La Gomera or Gran Canaria, go on a trip by submarine to see the unusual sea beds which surround the island or, if you prefer, you can go on a sportfishing tour.

You can enjoy this experience in different parts of the island. The Marine Reserve of Palm Mar is a recently developed area, 10 km far from Los Cristianos and Playa de Las Américas.
