Best Time for Whale Watching in Tenerife

Many people wonder when the best time to see the whales is. Tenerife has a resident colony of over 600 pilot whales that lives off the coast of Tenerife all year round. This is due to their constant food source of giant squid living in the waters below. Also, the mild climate in the Canary Islands makes the sea temperature only fluctuates between 19 °C and 21ºC. This means that the whales do not have to migrate for food or warmth.

We say that best time for whales and dolphin watching in Tenerife is whenever you can come. As the whales and dolphins are always here.

 This being said, during the winter months there is a possibility to see migrating species. This includes sperm whales, Sei whales, common dolphins and more.
