Our guide to Royal Delfin Cruise
A trip to Tenerife would not be complete without experiencing a leisurely cruise around the island's coastal waters in search of the native wildlife and a secluded bay or two where you can take a refreshing dip.
As your catamaran skips across the waves, you can sunbath on the sun deck, enjoy a drink from the complimentary bar (including beer, wine and soft drinks) or even head below deck to the large underwater viewing areas for great views of everything going on under the surface – it’s a bit like being in a giant aquarium!
If you are lucky, there is also a chance to see Pilot whales and Bottle-nose dolphins in their natural habitat. The waters off the south-west coast of Tenerife are probably the best place in Europe to see these incredible creature but, of course, sightings can't be guaranteed.
There is magnificent scenery throughout the trip, including the famous Los Gigantes cliffs and the boat also drops anchor in the beautiful Bay of Masca surrounded by the Teno Mountains. Here you can swim in the crystal clear water amidst the multitude of colourful fish.
