Whale watching excursions in Tenerife

The pleasant water temperature and abundant food sources make the waters around the Canary Islands a haven for whales, dolphins and a huge variety of marine wildlife.

Club Canary specialises in arranging whale and dolphin watching trips offering you a unique experience to admire and learn about these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat.

All of the boats that we work with obey environmental regulations and have been awarded the Blue Flag which recognises their ecological compliance. This recognition means you can observe the whales and dolphins in a sustainable and respectful manner.

The whale watching season in Tenerife lasts all year long so we are able to offer these boat excursions 365 days per year.  With this in mind we advise that you book your whale watching trip in advance whatever the time of year.

During the high season the boat trips can be booked up for several days in advance so you need to book before to ensure a place on board.  In the low season prior booking ensures we have the minimum number of people required to run the whale and dolphin watching experience Tenerife.

If you are looking for a private boat excursion or Tenerife yacht charter, rather than a shared boat trip, then check out our rent a boat in Tenerife page.
