Great time snorkelling and seeing the pilot whales and dolphins - we even saw a hammerhead shark on the way back in!! Amazing amazing amazing!
Lots of pods of pilot whales, one right next to boat - AMAZING! Calm, still day meant spotting was easy and we found ourselves amongst dolphins, made us realise how much bigger the whales were!

Laura, our guide and also Marine Biologist, gave a lot of interesting information about the pilot whales and dolphins we saw during the tour and she also made great pictures (free) which we get after the tour!
... a biologist high up on land with a high powered telescope guiding them to where the whales and dolphins are throughout the trip so we headed straight out to sea to a group of energetic Atlantic Spotted Dolphins.

My most spectacular experiences were a sailing trip among dolphins and small whales and a hike+cabin lift to Mount Teide where we explored the volcano and it's spectacular lava stone nature above the clouds.
We saw dolphins, whales and sea turtle during the day, the staff was very friendly and weather was just perfect.

Fabulous boat, great interactive two-man crew who looked after us so well, Dolphins were amazing and a sight to behold in such great numbers; Paella on board for lunch was pretty special too!
We were lucky enough to see both pilot whales and dolphins and we stopped for a swim/snorkel at El Puertito - even my 4 year old braved the very chilly sea! Fresh baguettes and plenty to drink.

The whole trip was top quality: the whale watching experience was literally breathtaking, the boat is immaculate and offers comfortable seating areas in both sun or shade.
Coming from NIceland (where we have a lot of both dolphins and whales) our favourite part was to relax on the boat, drink some sparkling wine and then jump in the ocean and snorkel in a beautiful remote bay.

We were expertly taken to an area a mile or so offshore, where we were surrounded by whales and dolphins for over an hour, before we headed towards the shore for a swim and a fantastic paella lunch cooked onboard.
Felix and his son Jaime gave us an amazing experience.They picked us up at our hotel and brought us to the boat and took us to see dolphins and whales.

PS I liked also a lot the hostel he adviced me, and also the excursion with his friend Paco, a marine biologist with whom we swam between the sea turtles, and with whom we went whale watching in a couple of metres...
My favourite one was „snorkeling with turtles“, but also the boat trip to see whales and dolphins was worth it.

We saw tons of pilot whales dolphins and at the end a huge pod of dolphins ..they were EVERYWHERE..baby dolphins playing in the water..! Amazing experience.
... seeking out the animals and manoeuvring so everyone gets a good look but the catamaran stays at a respectful distance, although we could still get great views and sometimes the whale and dolphins swam towards us.

The dolphins and whales were exceptional, Marco our captain was very nice and very knowledgeable, the refreshments offered were delightful, Spanish meats and cheeses from the local islands!
Nice captain (Marco), nice boat (small enough to be fun, big enough to host the whole party of 11 guests), nice tapas and drinks, whales and dolphins, snorkeling off Masca... We were also lucky with the weather.
