What marine life can you spot on this trip?
Tenerife is one of the best places in the world to spot whales and dolphins. This is because of its warm water temperatures, deep ocean depths and rich waters full of nutrients for whales and dolphins. Throughout the year, various species such as pilot whales and bottlenose dolphins live between the islands of Tenerife and La Gomera. Depending on the time of year and your luck, you can also spot other species of whales on Tenerife, such as Sperm whales and maybe even orcas.
Atlantic Star’s daily program
The Atlantic Star boat tour departs from the port Puerto Colon in Costa Adeje. The boat leaves here at your chosen time, and the entire excursion takes about 3 hours. During the boat trip on the Atlantic Star, the hostess prepares fresh sandwiches for you and there are unlimited drinks on board. The main goal during the Atlantic Star boat excursion is to spot the beautiful whales and dolphins of Tenerife, which will happen during the first part of the trip. After spotting them, we will visit a lovely bay called El Puertito where we will relax and have lunch for about 40 minutes. During the break you can also jump into the water for a refreshing swim, or use one of the available snorkel sets. Snorkeling in Tenerife can be beautiful but please don’t expect anything spectacular at this location.
Atlantic Star crew
Atlantic Star is managed by a Dutch family that previously had a lot of experience in the hospitality world. The manager’s name is Esther, and she is often herself or her son who both speak many languages on board working alongside the captain.
Special trips for families (mornings)
Atlantic Star boat trip is also very child friendly. Although life jackets are not mandatory, there are life jackets for children on board. In addition, there are safety edges so you can’t fall off the boat quickly. On the Atlantic Star, there will be no actual sailing so the boat will not hang to the seaside. The other advantage is that few people get seasick. We ask families with children to book a morning trip if possible. So couples, or people who prefer not to be on board with children can take the afternoon trip.
Special trips for couples (afternoons)
A whale watching trip is undoubtedly one of the must do activities among couples visiting Tenerife. Club Canary in cooperation with Atlantic Star try to place families with children together in the mornings. Then in the afternoons more the groups without children. The reason Atlantic Star is so popular among couples is because it operates in a smaller size of group so you can also have some privacy and romantic time together. The same boat and crew is being used for the Club Canary Tenerife sunset cruise edition. This trip is often booked by couples for wedding proposals.
Even though the Atlantic Star is a sailing yacht, there is virtually no sailing during the excursions. Much is done on the engine, this is because otherwise we cannot always spot whales or dolphins in 3 hours. Should you still like to sail, or want to go longer than 3 hours that can be arranged. Club Canary has the option for you to rent the Atlantic Star privately where you have more possibilities.
