Boat Trips in Playa de las Americas

One highly recommended activity is a boat trip to see whales and dolphins. It’s also perfect for relaxing, snorkelling or just having a great time with your friends, partner or family.

The activities you do depend on how much time you would like to spend on board. At we offer a lot of things to do in and from Playa de las Americas. Within our activities we have different boat trips. Depending on your tastes, needs and budget, we have the perfect offer for you.

Whale and Dolphin Watching

We would like to tell you a little bit about the whales and dolphins that live in the waters of Tenerife. Bottlenose dolphins are the permanent residents of the Canarian waters. Probably the name “bottlenose dolphin” may not say much, but what about Flipper, do you remember the series during your childhood? This is the same type of dolphin that you will have the opportunity to see on our boat trips.

But there are not only dolphins living in Canarian waters. Other permanent residents are our friends the pilot whales.

On our website we have different options for a whale or dolphin watching boat trip near Playa de las Americas.

I hired the atlanca boat as a surprise for my husbands 40th birthday and it was honestly the best day and lots of fun. Easy to book, when we arrived Patrick did the paperwork and explained everything then Fran gave us all the safety information on how to ride the boat. Everything was provided and additional special touches were much appreciated. They were both great, really friendly and put us at ease. We had 3 hours booked and we got the full time, everything excellent. Highly recommended. Thank you

Alquilamos una excursión para ver cetáceos y dar un paseo de 3h. En general la experiencia estuvo bien. Toda la gestión de reserva fue fácil y el trato con Bananapalmbay fue un gusto.
Al llegar al barco tuvimos alguna confusión con lo acordado, pero tras comunicarse la empresa del barco con Bananapalmbay se solucionó y pudimos disfrutar del viaje. Además vimos ballenas piloto.
