... enjoy the coast in an exclusive way

Tenerife Sailing Charters is one of the most glamorous ways to see the Tenerife coast and marine wildlife in the area: from a shared or private boat ... You will enjoy it!

Tenerife Sailing Charters' motto helps us understand their philosophy: 'A luxury way to see whales and dolphins in Tenerife on exclusive pleasure boats'. So if you want to see whales, dolphins and turtles or sail in absolute tranquillity, you've found the boat service to meet your needs.


What Tenerife Sailing Charters offers

A permanent population of pilot whales and other marine animals lives off the south coast of Tenerife. That's why Tenerife Sailing Charters is based in Puerto Colon in Playa de las Americas. That's where we met Paul, the owner of the company, while some guests set sail in search of sun.


With Tenerife Sailing Charters, you can enjoy the crystal-clear, deep, dark-blue waters and their marine wildlife. They usually accept a maximum of 9 people, so larger groups should enquire with Tenerife Sailing Charters before booking. It's therefore a service you can enjoy with your loved ones: friends, partner, family members, etc.

There are often marriage proposals, stag and hen parties and birthday parties on board – it's a real 'Love Boat'. Talking to Paul, we knew that a certain English dating programme takes the winning couples out for a ride on one of his boats.

Tenerife Sailing Charters' general services

You can almost say they offer heaven and earth ... Well, the sea! ☺ There is a wide variety of options for their activities, with the common feature of always being a unique and exclusive experience.


Share a luxury yacht for three hours – head out to see whales, dolphins and hopefully turtles in their natural habitat. The boat is for a maximum of 9 people. The price includes pick up and drop off at hotels in the south, snacks and drinks.

Private yacht and whale watching – you'll sail out to see the whales, dolphins and turtles on a private trip (for 3 or 6 hours) with your partner, friends or family members. You can decide whether you do it in a sailboat or a speedboat and where you want to stop for a refreshing swim or dive. The price includes drinks.

Pablo and Pedro are great captains and make guests feel very comfortable. They are the real secret of Tenerife Sailing Charters

Sunset cruise – choose this excursion with your partner, friends or family members and drop anchor wherever you like in a sailboat or speedboat. Dinner is served while you enjoy the sunset with La Gomera in the background.

Private charter – the captained Fairline 33 Targa can be hired for 2, 3, 4 or 6 hours any day of the week. This option includes pick up and drop off at your hotel, food, drink and fuel. You can see the whales, dolphins and turtles, swim in the open sea or dive in a deserted cove (snorkel equipment available). Cava is served on arrival at the boat, and there are soft drinks, beer, wine and food on offer during the journey.

One example we were told about was some guests who wanted to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary in a special way. They were picked up in Los Gigantes, saw the whales and dolphins, ate at a nice restaurant in Costa Adeje and returned to Los Gigantes.

Sunseeker Portofino 46 – this is Tenerife Sailing Charters' most exclusive sailboat, and you can hire it for 3 or 6 hours. The price includes pick up and drop off, cava and canapés on arrival, snack food and an open bar. An exclusive experience watching the whales and dolphins and swimming or diving wherever you like. With the 6-hour option, you can sail to the Los Gigantes and Masca cliffs if you like – they are very flexible.


Sunseeker Portofino 35 – the same services as the Sunseeker Portofino 46, with an ideal area for sunbathing. This option doesn't include fuel, which has to be paid for at the end of the charter.

You're guaranteed a VIP service: you'll be met with cava, there won't be crowds when you board, the products on offer will be presented exquisitely, and they'll be flexible about guest requests (even the most demanding). These are small details that make the experience feel special.

Final comments from the authors about Tenerife Sailing Charters

Although we haven't had the chance to try any of the activities offered by Tenerife Sailing Charters, we are convinced that being able to enjoy a day (or even just a few hours) on the high seas on board a luxury boat must be an experience everyone would enjoy.


Paul generously invited us to go out for a sail the day after we interviewed him, but we already had plans in another place Tenerife so had to turn down his offer. Maybe next time ☺ and then we will be able to update this article with more personal details.
