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.
As we sat idly observing a family group of Pilot whales a Mother and baby pair broke off from the rest of the group to do some ‘people watching’. This happens fairly often with our non-invasive approach. We do not chase the whales and dolphins, but instead observe quietly from the proper distance and allow the cetaceans own curiosity to dictate if there will be a closer encounter. It is fairly often that we are rewarded for our approach and patience with a beautiful encounter like this one today off Costa Adeje, Tenerife. Thanks to all the wonderful people who joined us today for thrilling and respectful whale and dolphin watching eco-adventures.
