Freebird is undoubtedly Puerto Colon’s most famous boat for whale watching trips. The company owes this to more than 20 years of experience in organizing Tenerife boat trips. In order to maintain an excellent reputation, they only hire qualified crew. That is why you can expect the captain on your trip to be an expert on boating and marine life.
Freebird whale watching Tenerife
Freebird catamarans are very well maintained and have plenty of space. This also means that many people can travel on the catamaran. This is of course very entertaining, but if you are looking for a quiet trip with not many people you better look for a boat like the one in this video: Tenerife whale watching.
Freebird 3 hour trip
The amazing 3 hour whale watching trip of the Freebird starts at 10:00 from the place Puerto Colon in Costa Adeje. From here the search for whales and dolphins begins in the area between Tenerife and La Gomera. During this cruise on the catamaran the crew will inform you about the characteristics of the whale species in their natural habitat. You will learn about their food, migrations and more. And before we return to the port at 13:00 there will be the opportunity to relax, sunbathe and enjoy a dip in the ocean.
Freebird 4½ hour trip
For this trip the Freebird boat leaves Puerto Colon at 13:15 to start a beautiful 4½ hour catamaran cruise. Afterwards they sail out to look for whales and dolphins and in the meantime the crew provides additional details about these beautiful animals. On this catamaran cruise we will also discover the high cliffs of Los Gigantes and we will take a long break in the breathtaking Masca bay of Tenerife. When we arrive in the bay you will have the opportunity to eat and swim.
Lunch and drinks on the Freebird boat
During each Freebird boat trip there are unlimited drinks available consisting of soft drinks, water, beer and sangria. Lunch is also provided during the Freebird sailing trips. The food usually involves different sandwiches and a more varied choice will be available during the Freebird boat trip to Masca. For vegetarians there are also options.
Please pay attention. The Freebird boat trips are about spotting whales and dolphins the natural environment. Drinks and some food are served, but this is standard quality and nothing special. In case you are looking for something like a sunset dining experience combined with whale watching, we recommend this Tenerife sunset cruise for you.
