The southern coast of Tenerife is a privileged place for watching whales in the wild as there are permanent pods of dolphins in the surrounding waters year round.. Tenerife has become the top European destination in terms of the number of people that have seen whales in the wild.

whales and bottlenose dolphins have settled off the south west coast of
Tenerife and have become permanent inhabitants: the food supply, which
is abundant, the tranquil waters, the good climate and quality of
crystal-clear waters , have created a paradise and ideal setting for
theses marine mammals.
