Why us

Whales and Dolphins Watching Tenerife

Visit the Resident Whales and Dolphins in the South Coast Of Tenerife onboard the Bahriyeli

The only boat in Spain that collaborates directly with Sea Shepherd UK

Collaborating with SEA SHEPHERD NO CHASE POLICY Bahriyeli invites you to an unforgettable experience on a two or three hour sail to visit Tenerife’s resident Pilot Whales and Dolphins in their own natural environment.

During the sail you will be able to see the breath taking south coast of Tenerife, Mount Teide and also the chance of seeing many different species of whales and dolphins that are passing by on their migration route including Sperm Whales, Fin Whales, turtles, many different species of dolphins, Jelly Fish and marine Birds.

On board our experienced crew will be able to identify and explain what you have seen on your cruise. The Bahriyeli will give you an unforgettable experience with these gentle majestic creatures, as we do not chase or bother them. They themselves often come close to the boat as we respect them totally.

Our other excursion for 3 hours is the same the only difference being lunch, drinks and swimming is included

We are the only boat with a Marine Biologist Guide on Board !

We do not use throw away plastic cups on board to try and save plastics entering the ocean with the wind when left.  People buy a cup for 1 euro, they use that during the whole trip and then take it with them.

On board, our guests will be given a fully loaded chat full of information regarding whatever species they have seen, problems whales and dolphins are facing around the world, including the Faroe Islands and the Cove, and also some sad facts about captivity.

Sin duda una experiencia brutal. Contratamos la excursión de 2 horas para ver delfines y ballenas, solo pudimos ver varios grupos de los primeros. Fue muy bonito observarlos en su medio. La tripulación hizo el recorrido muy ameno, explicación en varios idiomas y son muy respetuosos con el medio ambiente. Sin duda lo recomiendo, y nosotros si volvemos a Tenerife repetiremos seguro!

Couldn’t be happier. First of all, it’s cheaper than lots of other tours. Boat wasn’t over crowded. Staff were brilliant, and the one that was making announcements was doing so in 4 different languages… very accommodating. But most importantly, we saw 2 different types of dolphins and 2 different types of whales. They came right under the boat, the spotted dolphins we saw were actually playing with the boat at one point. A truly magical experience, it really is a must for anyone visiting the island.

Een excursie om nooit te vergeten. En in 2 uur tijd ben ik overtuigd om nooit meer zeedieren in gevangenschap op te zoeken. Ze horen thuis in de oceaan. Ga aanboord met de Crew van de Bahriyeli ervaar zelf hoe ze met respect voor de zeedieren ons laten zien wat hun habitat is. Je ziet gegarandeerd de dieren alleen daar en wanneer ze zelf willen. Bedankt Crew Bahriyeli ❤️🐳🐋🐬

Escursione di due ore in un barco con una ottima visuale per l'avvistamento di delfini e balene pilota nella baia di Los Cristianos. Parcheggio nel porto e due minuti a piedi sei sul barco adatto anche hai più piccoli
