Atlantic Spotted Dolphins Underwater

Posted by:

Spotted dolphins are one of our guest favourites as they often swim over to the boat and seem to enjoy bow riding or pacing alongside the boat, often leaping mere meters away from our excited guests (and crew!). GoPro underwater footage gives us a glimpse into their ocean realm.

Racing over to the boat, bow riding and leaping alongside is not typical behaviour of most whale and dolphin species. Yet when we stop the boat to give the dolphins ...

Dolphins Hunt a Bait ball

Posted by:

Atlantic Spotted dolphins hunt a bait ball of small fish on this mornings whale and dolphin watching tour along Costa Adeje, Tenerife. Exciting to observe their underwater activity with the help of the GoPro.

Bottlenose dolphins hunt as a team, encircling the prey fish. In the open ocean there is no where to trap fish, so the Bottlenose dolphins work in a group pushing the fish towards the surface where the fish have no where to escape.

Blainville’s Beaked Whale Costa Adeje

Blainville’s Beaked whales are a deep diving species that hunts medium sized squid and octopus in the deep ocean. The underwater topography of Tenerife’s volcanic origins creates a very deep marine environment of over 3 kilometres of depth not far off of Costa Adeje.

Pilot Whales Investigate our Boat

Posted by:

While exploring Costa Adeje today on our whale and dolphin watching tours we were so lucky to encounter two Pilot whales, a female and young calf, that were very inquisitive of our boat. There are whale watching regulations in Tenerife that we strictly adhere to, but the resident Pilot whales don’t have any such restrictions. They are the top of the food chain here in Tenerife and go where they want to.

Lucky for us, today they were in ...
