Whale and Dolphin species from Tenerife Island
Tenerife is one of the best places in the world to observe whales and dolphins in their natural environment. More than 20 species of cetaceans have been encountered in our waters. The calm and pristine waters, combined with a rich marine ecosystem makes the South-West of Tenerife the perfect place for a great variety of marine species.
Other species of whales and dolphins can be seen all year round at unspecific frequencies. The sighting of these species depends on many factors such as the temperature of the water, the oceanic currents, the food resources and the distance from the coast.
