WHAT WHALES OR DOLPHINS WE WILL SEE?
The South West coast of Tenerife is home to short finned pilot whales and bottlenose dolphins, which are the most expected species to encounter with our tours. Nonetheless, there are 31 cetacean species recorded in the Canary Islands, so it is not uncommon to see pods of numerous oceanic dolphins jumping all over the place, or solitary giants like baleen whales or sperm whales. If we are very lucky, we might get to see shy beaked whales, or majestic orcas. Every day is different and full of surprises!
DO YOU OFFER A GUARANTEE?
Yes! Sighting success rate is very high all year round. WWET guarantees to encounter at least one species of whale or dolphin in all our tours except wildlife peek. Bearing in mind that wild animals are unpredictable, it can happen, at rare times, that we do not see any. In that case, WWET offers the opportunity to join us again on another tour for free, the day of your choosing from the days where we have vancancies.
