Dolphin and Whale Watching

  • English English
  • 3 hours

Immerse yourself in the open sea on a small boat and enjoy a ride along the coast of La Palma in which you’ll spot different types of whales and dolphins. A truly unique experience! 


Begin the boat cruise from Tazacorte Port, where a boat will be waiting for you to take you on a cruise along the coasts of La Palma to gaze at its diverse marine fauna. On board this comfortable vessel sail along the Atlantic Ocean in search for whales, dolphins and other cetaceans living off the shores of the Canary Islands.

Approximately 30 types of different cetaceans reside close to La Palma. Learn all about these interesting mammals as you listen to the crew’s explanations. Sit back in your chair and marvel at the dolphins gliding alongside the boat and spot the whales spouting water.

The boat will then drift to the Cueva Bonita, “The Pretty Cave”, a volcanic grotto shaped by the erosion of the sea. A beautiful rock formation! Afterwards, the boat will lower the anchor close to the port by a nearby beach where you can go for a refreshing swim before heading back to the starting point.
