Snorkelling with Turtles by Kayak
This activity takes place from Los Cristianos beach, close to main resort areas of Costa Adeje and Las Americas .It starts off with a 25 minute kayak ride along some impressive cliffs to the snorkelling site only accessible by sea. Then it's into the water to look for turtles and bull rays. Usually within a few minutes 3 or 4 curious turtles arrive and get very close, swimming around and in between us. Also the bull rays are regularly gliding elegantly along the sea bed underneath us.
We usually swim with the turtles for about 1 hour (you can allways rest in the kayaks if need a break) and the groups are kept to maximum of 8 people. This is to reduce the negative impact on the turtles well being, their habitat and for your enjoyment. They also usually get very close when they come to the surface to breath, so please refrain from touching or holding onto the turtles as this causes them a lot of unnecessary stress.
This activity takes place all year round. The only difference between summer and winter is that in the summer we wear short wet suits and in the winter we wear full wet suits. The sea temperature in Tenerife is nice all year round and In the winter it goes down to 19º/20º and in the summer its goes up to 23º/24º.
