A great activity, very entertaining. Apart from seeing dolphins (in our case), we were able to enjoy views of the island that are only possible by boat. The explanations were 10 and the crew is very concerned that you are comfortable. Totally recommendable

Dolphin and Whale Watching

Begin the boat cruise from Tazacorte Port, where a boat will be waiting for you to take you on a cruise along the coasts of La Palma to gaze at its diverse marine fauna.

You'll board the boat Flipper, and on this comfortable vessel, you'll sail along the Atlantic Ocean for two and a half hours in search for whales, dolphins and other cetaceans living off the shores of the Canary Islands.

Approximately 30 types of different cetaceans reside close to La Palma. Learn all about these interesting mammals as you listen to the crew’s explanations. Sit back in your chair and marvel at the dolphins gliding alongside the boat and spot the whales spouting water.

During the cruise we will also take in some of the most outstanding sights in La Palma, such as the Porís de Candelaria Cave. The boat will then drift to the Cueva Bonita, “The Pretty Cave”, a volcanic grotto shaped by the erosion of the sea. A beautiful rock formation! Afterwards, the boat will lower the anchor close to the port by a nearby beach where you can go for a refreshing swim before heading back to the starting point.
