Whales and Dolphins of Tenerife


As one of the top three whale and dolphin watching destinations in the world, Tenerife is the best place in Europe to see our magnificent nature at its very best. With resident species all year around including bottlenose dolphins, pilot whales and sperm whales and up to 24 other species migrating through Canarian waters at different times of the year, it is a veritable natural paradise.

Add to this the many species of sea birds, turtles, shark and Rays that can be seen and a trip on one of the island's many whale watching boats is an absolute must.

The AWF runs the volunteer programme on the whale watching boats and has done so for nearly two decades. Young volunteers from around the world are on the whale watching boats that we collaborate with 'Research Guiding', carrying out research on the whales and dolphins visited and raising awareness of the many conservation issues threatening nature.

The AWF's  volunteer work can be viewed on www.whalenation.org. Their global conservation strategy is outlined on the Save the Whale campaign. Commissions from on line bookings on this site go towards the Save the Whale programme.
