Ecological whale watching tour (2 hours)

  • Departure point: pontoon 4 (Puerto Colón)
  • Sailing route: Teno-Rasca special conservation area
  • Distance from the coast: 3 miles
  • Depth: 1,000 metres
  • Cetacean species: short-finned pilot whale and bottlenose dolphin (there is also the possibility of seeing migratory cetaceans).

Tour information with Bonadea

The route starts by boat from Puerto Colón to sail in the area between the Rasca lighthouse and Mar Azul, at a distance of 3 miles from the coast and reaching a depth of 1,000 metres.

Shortly after the start of the trip and close to the coast, dolphins, whales, turtles and seabirds (and hopefully some migratory cetaceans) can already be found.

In order not to disturb the animals, the boat will be kept at a safe distance but at a distance that allows perfect observation, so you will be able to photograph and record the experience without any problem.

At this time, the crew is available at all times to explain information and curiosities about cetaceans such as the short-finned pilot whales or bottlenose dolphins, which are the most common.

After the time of sighting, the boat will return to port, making a route where you can contemplate the spectacular landscapes of the island from the sea.
