Some video from todays encounter with Bottlenose dolphins on our Costa Adeje whale and dolphin watching tours. They are often very active, approaching the whale watching boat, with spectacular leaps and engaging activity for the guests to observe.
Costa Adeje is the home to a large resident population of Bottlenose dolphins of two distinct eco-types. These are the ‘coastal’ and ‘oceanic’ eco-types of Bottlenose dolphins. While their DNA make-up is the same, their environment and lifestyle have created ...
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. These deep ocean waters allow for a myriad of different prey species for cetaceans which in turn creates opportunity and the presence of a variety of whales and dolphins off of Tenerife’s coasts.
Spotted dolphins are such an amazing species to observe on our Costa Adeje whale watching tours. A transient species, they often are in large pods and usually very active. Most times they race over to the boat and seem to love bow riding, much to the excitement of our guests!

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.
Out exploring the deep ocean for whales and dolphins today along Costa Adeje we found a tiny surprise – an Atlantic Silver Hatchetfish! These fish live in the deep ocean where there is very little light, only the blue spectrum which penetrates the deepest.
Living in such an environment the Atlantic Silver Hatchetfish has evolved some amazing physical attributes. It hunts mostly small crustaceans, like shrimp, so it has large fang like teeth to grasp and penetrate the thin ...
