Kayak with Dolphins snorkel with Turtles

Los Cristianos, Spain

Animal experience hosted by Paul Alexander

  1. 2.5 hours
  2. Hosted in 5 languages

What you'll do

Climb aboard for a 2.5-hour kayaking adventure in Tenerife, and get up close and personal with dolphins in their natural environment. Observe the amazing creatures from a vessel that does not stress them or disturb them.
Experience the extraordinary sensation of being surrounded by pods of up to 30 dolphins that sometimes put on a show by jumping high into the air or swim directly underneath the kayak!
Then it's into the water for an optional swim break and snorkel to look for turtles and bull rays. Usually, within a few minutes, curious turtles arrive and get very close, swimming around and in between us. Also, the bull rays regularly glide elegantly along the sea bed underneath us.
Other things to note
The minimum age is 14 years old. If you are prone to sea sickness it is a good idea to take a sea sickness pill 30 minutes before the trip. It is mandatory to know how to swim for this experience.

We will climb board the kayaks on the beach in Los Cristianos after a small briefing and then its out to sea in search of dolphins. After spending some time with the dolphins, we head towards a bay that is only accessible by sea where we will stop for an optional swim and snorkel break to look for turtles and bull rays. Within a few minutes curious turtles arrive and get very close. Also the bull rays regularly glide elegantly along the sea bed.

    Es war eine tolle Erfahrung! Wir haben paar Schildkröten gesichtet und eine ist sogar mit uns beim Schnorcheln mitgeschwommen :))) auf dem Rückweg konnten wir innerhalb der Fischfarmen Delphine beobachten. Auch wenn sie relativ weit weg waren, war es toll sie zu sehen. Sehr cool fand ich auch, dass unser Guide Fotos während der Ausfahrt gemacht hat, sodass wir anschließend schöne Erinnerungsfotos per Email bekommen haben. Die Gruppe war sehr klein 3 Kayaks - das war optimal. Ansonsten bleibt zu sagen, dass das Team sehr nett und sehr entspannt ist. Also alles super! Nur sollte man nicht mit zu hohen Erwartungen ran gehen und sich darauf einlassen, dass man eben an den Fischfarmen vorbei paddelt, weil sich die Tiere nunmal aufgrund des Nahrungsangebots dort aufhalten. Es war ein toller Vormittag und ich empfehle dieses Erlebnis gerne weiter! 😊👌🌴🐬🐢☀️🛶

    Der Ausflug an sich war schön. Wir sahen eine Schildkröte und konnten mit ihr Schnorcheln selbst Delphine am Schluss ganz kurz gesehen. Allerdings war die Begrüßung ein wenig hektisch. Es war viel los. Aber war okay.

    Wir hatten einen tollen Ausflug, es hat wirklich sehr viel Spaß gemacht. Außerdem war es ein sehr besonderes Erlebnis die Tiere in freier Wildbahn zu erleben. Es wurde alles gut erklärt und man hat sich rund um wohl und sicher gefühlt.

    I 100% recommend this experience. I swam very close to a sea turtle and had the chance to see dolphins also from up close. It was my first time kayaking but the instructions were very clear, it was also a good morning workout 💪. The guides were patient and we had enough time to chase the dolphins and snorkel with the turtles.

    We did not see any dolphins, but that could be bad luck. We did see multiple turtles including during the snorkeling part, and the kayaking itself was pleasant with the good weather. Our guide (John) was also extremely nice and helpful.

    The activity was awesome ! The animals are wild so WE can't be certain to see them, but we had enough luck to see dolphins (from a bit far since they eat in a fishing area that's private) ans turtles (from very very close, we swam with them) Jon was a really great guide, conscious of the animals' well-being, and very very helpful when I managed to loose my paddle in the sea Definitely recommand !!!
