Kayaking With Dolphins in Tenerife

Get up close and personal with dolphins in their natural habitat.

This activity takes place all year round and is one of the best things to do in Los Cristianos. To reduce the negative impact on the dolphins well being, their habitats and for your enjoyment, the groups are kept to maximum of 12 people. Usually after 25 minutes of paddling  you are often surrounded by pods of up to 30 dolphins. As the kayaks do not  make any noise they do not frighten or disturb the dolphins and  often we are rewarded with dolphins jumping high into the air or swimming directly underneath your kayak.

The coast of Tenerife is the home to up to 5 different species of dolphins with the bottle nose dolphin being the easiest to spot, often just off the coast. Their average length is 2.7 metres for males and 2.5 metres for females, with the oldest individuals measuring over 3 metres (10 feet) and they live in groups between 10 and 30 members.

The minimum age for this activity is 14.
