Los Gigantes, Tenerife, 38683

The Basics

While you can see the towering Los Gigantes cliffs from just about anywhere in the town, there are a few places that provide optimal views: The Archipenque Mirador, a roadside lookout just outside town, offers an excellent photo op. You can also enjoy spectacular views from the town’s black sand beach, or set sail on a sightseeing cruise or a dolphin-watching excursion that travels along Tenerife’s western coastline.

We have seen so many dolphins and even a fin whale! It was lots of fun, thank you. The crew was caring about all our needs, even as we got a bit sea sick (can happen).

We sailed on the 1 PM cruise on August 26. The 2 person crew were amazing—so friendly and informative. It was just the 3 of us and one other family. We saw 3 whales quite close to the boat, as well as some tuna, and a sea turtle, but mostly it was just a relaxing beautiful day.

Staff were super friendly and very knowledgeable; it's clear they love what they do and enjoy sharing their passion with you and answering questions. We got lucky and saw several whales and dolphins, but even when there was no wildlife, the views were beautiful, and being able to take a dip in the ocean by the cliffs was amazing. We didn't expect as much motoring as there was (vs. pure sailing), but the motor was so quiet that it wasn't disruptive, and allowed us to get better positions with wildlife. Overall, enjoyed this very much.

it was a great experience in a small group (that day we were 3 couples) with a top team. thanks to them. they are sensitive to animal life, respect the environment, and know how to give good explanations. we got to see dolphins, pilot whales and a turtle. the photos of the expedition are sent by e-mail. we highly recommend if you want to be away from mass tourism.

Jaime and Eileen were outstanding hosts, always attending to our needs. There were eight passengers and they were able to accommodate everyone's needs. They offered constant refreshments, were very sociable and friendly, and took us to wonderful spots where saw marine life on frequent occasions. The ride was smooth comfortable, where we could sit in the main seating area or wander to the bow and relax in the warm sun. You will not be disappointed in this experience.
