Most excursions will take you to see whales and dolphins in their natural environment. Our boat captains are perfectly knowledgeable about Tenerife’s marine life.

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.
