For dolphin and whale watching, there is a place in the Canary Islands that is amongst the best in the world. Tenerife is home to the Teno-Rasca Marine Strip. Dolphins are most active in the morning and evening. They tend to be less active at night, especially if it’s cloudy or rainy out. Dolphins are here year round although many of them are migratory. They are most frequently seen in the warm months from May to October when the water is warmer.
Of course, there is no guarantee that you will see Dolphins but it’s rare not to see Whales on your trip. Whale-watching tours usually sail from Puerto Colón, Costa Adeje, Los Gigantes, or Los Cristianos.
