Fantastic trip, only a small Yacht, so no bigs groups pushing past you trying to find a gap to take a photo ! We saw dolphins, whales and a turtle. Captain was great and she was very knowledgeable. We will book this again when we return.
Brilliant! We were lucky enough to have the boat to ourselves (just me and my partner) and also very lucky to see a whale family and lots of dolphins that weren't from this area so also just tourists.
Brilliant experience and the tour guide was so friendly and took a genuine interest in us seeing as much as we could.
amazing and unparalleled experience, thank you! seeing dophins that close was just spectacular!
My partner and I went to Tenerife and wanted to do a snorkeling/kayaking or boating experience while we were there. We were SO happy with our choice in Tenerife Sailing Charter's. We were picked up from our Airbnb, and taken to the location. Everything went so smoothly. We saw SO many dolphins while we were out there and enjoyed the champagne and beer! The weather was absolutely perfect and the views are gorgeous out there. The snorkeling goes very fast but we had so much fun ! Thanks Paul and team!
My wife, son who is almost 6 months old and I were on vacation in Tenerife and wanted to do some whale watching. This area of the world is known for its whale watching as dozens of species of whales and dolphins migrate through the Canary Islands every year. I did a little research and came across Tenerife Sailing Charter. My wife has never been sailing and I wanted her to have that experience as well.
I tried to book on their website, but had a little trouble scheduling directly on the site. I came across this listing on Viator and the pictures looked exactly the same it didn't say directly that it was Tenerife Sailing Charter until after I booked which was annoying, but I felt confident it was the same company. It was nice on to book on Viator as well, because I could book and pay in dollars rather than Euros and the upcharge Viator/Trip Advisor's cut wasnt too much to make me balk.
The company provides transport to the port from your hotel, and when I called the owner Paul to ask about it, he said that they could come pick us up even though we were staying a over 20 kms away. I later received an email from the company that we were too far to pick up so if we could drive ourselves that would be best. We had rented a car for our week vacation, so I was planning on doing it anyway. We had an infant son so it was just easier with his car seat.
We were running late and Paul called me directly to make sure we were still coming. We were cutting it close to our 10am departure time and were actually a little late but the boat waited for us. Im sure it was a little annoying for the other patrons, but I really appreciated it as traveling with an infant can take time. This was good customer service and communication, and the company gets 5 stars solely for this reason there are other reasons, but I would have given 5 stars just for this
On our way out of the harbor, our captain Captain Jose told us we couldnt sail because there wasnt enough wind. This is not the company's fault as you need wind to sail. He also told us the trade off for this is that when there is no wind, the seas are much calmer and the whales are more likely to be resting at the surface he was right. We saw a lot. He was a very lovely man and was a good guide. He told us where we were going and what we were looking for. The only thing that made me worry a bit was that there was no safety briefing anywhere on the trip where are the life vests? Was there a life vest for my infant son? Maybe we did this before we got there. I didnt bother to ask either so the blame also falls on me.
We went a few kilometers and saw a lot of pilot whales. This is the main sighting in Tenerife. They are beautiful creatures and my family loved seeing them. We didnt see any dolphins or turtles, but thats ok. There was champagne and fruit and crackers available if we were hungry. It was a nice touch. After the whale watching portion was over, we motored over to a cove and went swimming. My wife and I were the only ones who went swimming and the captain gave us snorkeling gear and was overall just a lovely human being to have around. He provided some sodas, more champagne, beer, and sandwiches which was quite tasty. He told us about his daughter who lives in England and told us that he wanted to visit New York where I live. He played with our son and made him honorary first mate. We told him we would love to show him around should he ever came. After swimming for 30 minutes or so, we motored back to port to end our three hour tour cue Gilligan's Island theme. We drove back to our hotel with a lovely memory from our trip.
This trip is a wonderful experience. Our host, Jose, was knowledgeable and funny, the sea wasn't too choppy, and we were fortunate and blessed to come across a family of female pilot whales with their young swimming alongside them. It was a day that I will never forget, and I would recommend this excursion highly.
Absolutely awesome - picked up from hotel by the owner Paul and greeted by his friendly staff with a glass of champers before being taken out by Jose on one of the lovely well maintained yachts to see Turtles and Pilot Whales, unfortunately didn't see Dolphins. Stopped off at a quiet cove for a bit of lunch - baguette and drinks and a swim before returning to port and being dropped back to hotel. Wonderful trip by very friendly and professional company - Many thanks for everything Paul
Really enjoyed this experience. We were collected from our hotel and dropped back off. We were greeted with cava and had a simple lunch provided. The best thing was that our tour guide had genuine interest in making sure we saw pilot wales. The dolphins were too far our due to the weather but I have been on trips where the tour guide just wants your money and a tick in a box as trip done and dusted. We saw a family of pilot wales. Amazing experience highly recommended.
I had booked this as a special birthday present for my husband and we certainly were not disappointed!!! It was a very calm day, rather cloudy but our 'skipper' - Jose was charming, extremely knowledgeable and definitely knew where to take us to view and we were lucky enough to see four different types of dolphins and a mother siren whale and two young. We literally sailed amongst a school of dolphins and at one point our boat was surrounded and wherever you looked they were there, and five of them actually jumped out of the water, one after the other - it was like watching a cabaret act. It was very exciting to see them in their natural environment and would recommend this tour to anyone wanting value for their money. Thank you so much, hasta luego XX
Awesome captain, experienced person and great organisation. Sure spot to see whales and dolphins. Nice spots to chill.
We went on the whale watching tour and found it very interesting. Our Captain Tony was very warm to all the quests on the boat and he was also very informative. We saw turtles and also a pod of pilot whales. Great day out would recommend to anyone to go.
Wonderful three hour trip on small sailing yacht. Just seven passengers plus the captain, who was very entertaining. No dolphins or turtles but we did see some minky whales.Weather was glorious and the sea like a millpond and the coastline is beautiful. Glasses of bubbly when we boarded and picnic lunch was provided when we anchored in a small bay, where you could have a swim. .Altogether a very enjoyable experience.
Four of us went out in December, we saw dolphins, whales and a turtle then stopped for lunch in a bay. It was great, we were well looked after and enjoyed being on a sailing boat.

It was an enjoyable experience. The pick up and drop from and to the hotel were prompt. The team were very pleasant. On the yatch, the breeze/waves/music/the views/animal spotting - everything was a special experience. Loved this the most in tenerife..! Would definitely recommend.
Wonderful Three hour trip. was told we may not see Dolphins on the trip as it was late in the year. would definitely see Whales. As it happened we saw both. Captain very nice fella. worth every penny.
From the first contact Paul and his Captain Ancor made the whole experience a day to remember. The captain was very knowledgeable and sensitive to the whales and dolphins that we saw and the environment. Very impressive and excellent value. Highly recommended.
Fabulous trip, would recommend above all others. Super personal service nothing too much trouble. All staff knowledgeable and friendly, the best part is we got to see whales, dolphins and a couple of turtles! Couldn't have asked for more, thanks Paul and the team.
Fantastic tour! Everyone was so nice and accommodating. Saw a ton of dolphins and pilot whales and then swam in a cove near the end of the tour. Thanks again!
The whole experience was amazing and it was very humbling to see the whales and dolphins in their natural environment. They came very close to the boat and everyone got a good view of them.
The captain was very nice and knew lots about the area and the animals.
We would highly recommend this trip!
