Recommendations for a perfect excursion

Before your whale watching excursion from Costa Adeje, bear in mind these tips:

What do I need to bring?


  • Sunscreen is recommended to protect you from the sun. Sunglasses are also a good idea.
  • For better sightings, binoculars are your best ally.
  • If you get dizzy easily, you can buy an anti-motion sickness pill at the pharmacy.
  • The temperature drops on the route, so it’s a good idea to take some warm clothing with you.

Do I choose a specific date?


  • Excursions to see cetaceans have a sighting rate of close to 100%, as there are resident species in Tenerife all year round, such as the short-finned pilot whale and the bottlenose dolphin.
  • Other cetacean species are more abundant in May and June.

What if I carry a camera?


  • Remember that snapshots can be blurred between the movement of the boat and the animals.
  • Be aware of that small delay between the shutter release and taking the picture.
  • Avoid over-zooming.

Do I need permits?
