Only Private Tour. Max 10 passengers. The departure will be done on time from Puerto Colón at the time scheduled. We will head a few miles sea inside until we arrive in deeper waters, zones of some extremely high submarine cliffs. We will continue and head in Northwest direction to Los Gigantes, place of the magnificent rock ravines that fall straight to the sea. During this tour we will have the chance to watch the varied local fauna of cetaceans, sea birds and sea turtles. We will hear the sounds that the animals produce under the water and will observe their behaviour on the surface. Then, we will have a soft drink and some snacks having the opportunity to swim in one of the most incredible places of the Canary Islands. Once again, we will head to Puerto Colón where we will put an end to our five-hour 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.
