Private sea life safari – 3 hours
Enjoy exclusive family fun on a 3 hour private sea life safari from Puerto Colón, Costa Adeje in the south of Tenerife. Comfort-focused charters aboard Poker Chip for the most memorable of your Tenerife excursions. Our 3 hour private charter is the same as the 3 hour shared charter in terms of itinerary, with the difference that you have the boat to yourselves and and can choose to spend more time in the bay, out at sea etc. Of course you can just let the skipper follow the usual course and timings too.
Search for dolphins
After leaving Puerto Colón, and cruising at about 10 knots, we take you straight out to the fish farms about a mile offshore. Here we search for dolphins as they’re often found swimming around the fish filled nets. Although there are many species of dolphin found in Tenerife’s waters, the most commonly spotted are bottlenose dolphins.
Cruise through pilot whale territory
Now we take you out to the 3 mile mark where you’ll cruise parallel to the coast through resident pilot whale territory. We turn the engine off during encounters, and we are often approached by marine mammals because of Poker Chip’s relatively small size and quiet engine. It’s common for whales to come right up to us so giving you some great photo opportunities. You can all have a go at the wheel during the searching stage, for some real hands-on fun (with the skipper supervising of course).
Relax in Turtle Bay
Following the offshore section of the charter we drop anchor in a small sandy bay called El Puertito (known locally as ‘Turtle Bay’). Here you can enjoy swimming and snorkeling and relax with a bite to eat and a few drinks. This picturesque fishing village’s bay features in many Tenerife excursions as it is perfect for snorkeling and diving because of its sheltered position and the water’s excellent visibility. Here you will be able to see the sea bed clearly while snorkeling on the surface because we can go closer in than other boats, usually anchoring in about 10 feet of water. Quality masks and snorkels are on board for you so you can get eye to eye with the turtles if you’re feeling adventurous! (If you haven’t snorkeled before we’ll show you what to do – it’s a fairly quick learning curve!)
Coastal cruise back to Puerto Colón
The last leg of the charter is a coast hugging cruise back to Puerto Colón. We follow the coast closely past Spaghetti Beach, La Caleta and Fañabé’s beaches before entering the port.
PRICE: 335 euros including quality food and all drinks. Families and groups up to 11 people.
