Description

Discover with this double experience the marine environment of the Tenerife coast thanks to a whale watching guided tour and later immersion in Atlantic waters, coming into contact with a variety of fish and invertebrates.

Getting to know the Canarian marine fauna

Are you aware of how our presence affects marine wildlife when we try to get to know their habitat? During this touristic-educational tour you will get to know the seabed of the south of Tenerife. Thanks to a specialised biologist and the hydrophone on the boat you will be able to interpret the acoustic behaviour of the species.

To end the excursion, you will be able to swim and snorkel in Puertito de Armeñime and enjoy even more the food that will be waiting for you on board.

Immerse yourself in shallow waters

To complete your knowledge on the marine fauna of the island we encourage you to experience an initiation to scuba diving with the help of professionals, who will instruct you and indicate which species you should be looking for under water. You will have at your disposal cards of the different species and invertebrates to guide you in your search. Don’t miss any!

This experience doesn’t end when you come out of the water, it includes a presentation to make you aware of the dangers which await the Atlantic and the need for its conservation. To top off this experience, as the boat returns to Puerto Colón, you will be able to enjoy a drink and some snacks.
