Dolphin & Whale Watching

The south-west coast of Tenerife is a truly outstanding location for the observation of free-living whales as there are colonies of pilot whales and dolphins which remain here throughout the year. They live so close to the coast that Tenerife has become the most important place in Europe for the number of persons who carry out free-living-whale-watching.
