    A baptism in scuba diving does not have to be passive and irrelevant. Not only will you immerse yourself but you will discover the natural values of the southern coast of Tenerife.

    Help restore the seabed with your underwater activity enjoying learning to dive.

    Our tour begins in Puerto Colón in Costa Adeje. There they will board the “Jacaré Uno”, in dock number two where they will be received by their instructors and the crew and given the necessary material for the dive.
    They will be explained in person what a diving baptism consists of and what it is to learn to dive.

    Once we have set sail we will go to the Puertito de Adeje, a unique enclave in which you will be equipped with the wetsuit, diving jacket, regulator, fins etc.

    Each baptism diver is accompanied at all times by an instructor so that the ratio is one instructor for each diver. The dive will take place between 10 or 12m deep.

    When the dive is over, again at the “Jacaré Uno” we will take together a soda, a snack and fruit to rehydrate the body and we will discuss the different species of fish and invertebrates observed.

     

    Once gathered at the meeting point, we will board at the agreed time in our boat “Papacho 2” with a maximum capacity of ten passengers. Our biologist on board will explain the details of the fauna that we can find and the keys to its conservation.

    During our tour we will approach different groups of cetaceans, sea turtles and sea birds, always respecting the space of the animals and without interfering with their natural behavior. In this way our visitors and our crew will interpret the secrets of animal behavior together.

    When sighting we will completely turn off the engines of the boat so as not to disturb the animals and we will launch a hydrophone to listen to the sounds that the animals use to communicate or to hunt.

    In the 3-hour tour there is also a time slot to anchor in a beautiful cove where our biologist will explain issues related to the conservation of sea turtles and coastal natural spaces.

    They will have time to take some snacks (sandwiches and drinks) that we will have prepared for them and to take a bath in crystal clear waters with snorkeling that we will provide.

    FAQ

    Most frequent questions and answers

    The departure will be done on time from Puerto Colón at the time scheduled. We will head to deeper waters where the visitor will receive a brief explanation on the fauna that we can find and what our way of observation will be, the characteristics of the animal behaviour that we find (sea birds, short-finned pilot whales, dolphins, whales…) as well as the coast’s characteristics and ocean currents. The visitor will have the chance to listen to the sounds of the cetaceans and understand more about its communication skills.

    For those who select the Eco Experience (3 hours tour), the visit will go on and we will head to the coast again to Puertito de Armeñime, where the visitors can take a swim in a very particular place due to sociocultural characteristics, intertidal zone fauna and the famous sea turtles that reside there. We will have a soft drink and some snacks and when the time comes, we will head back again to Puerto Colón where we will put an end to the journey.

    It is very important to choose the best option according to how much time you have and how long the journey takes. The different prices, timetables and duration of the trips offered are very broad. In all of our journeys a soft-drink or a glass of local wine with snacks will be offered to our visitors. It is highly recommended to go dressed according to the circumstances and check the weather forecast for the day.

    Taking off your shoes will be required before coming on-board. Your footwear will be nicely kept by our crew.

    For those who will take their photo equipment, we also have some good advice in order to get good pictures. You have to remember that pictures could be blurred if the boat has not stopped or goes in slow speed. Furthermore you have to consider the small delay between the shot and the actual moment when the picture is taken when using compact cameras.

    Our boat “El Papacho 2” is an exceptionally stable boat, but if you suffer from seasickness during this kind of trips, or doubt so, we strongly recommend you to take some pills in order to fight back the symptoms of seasickness.

    Long solar exposition should be considered, in that manner we suggest our visitors to have UVA filter cream with them or any other protection against solar radiation.
