Whale Watching

Known as the island of eternal spring, Tenerife offers fantastic weather conditions to enjoy sea activities year round. This tour offers you the rare opportunity of watching whales and dolphins in their natural environment. You'll be taken to the yacht harbor of Puerto Colon, where the boats are located. Sailing across the blue waters, you’ll arrive to an area where a colony of pilot whales and nearly 500 dolphins are very commonly seen. The dolphins are known to swim at incredible speeds, jumping right in front of and on the sides of the boat.


Though the pilot whales tend to not get too close, the boat will get as close as possible. You might even hear them puff! The catamaran will anchor at a secluded bay. Here, you'll have some time to relax and refresh in the clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean. In this area, the dolphins frequently make their appearance as well. Soft drinks, beer, water and snacks will be served on board.


Note: Dolphin and whale sightings are very common but are not guaranteed. Remember to bring a towel and your swimsuit. Tour involves minimal walking, but participants must take 7 to 10 steps to get to the gangway in order to board the catamaran. This tour is not offered on Norwegian Spirit's Dec 26, 2014 or Dec 19, 2015 sailings.
