I remember a magic, private boat tour Los Gigantes in Tenerife, Spain.
We left before lunchtime.
The friend who had invited me for the private excursion off Los Gigantes had to show a club membership card to enter the Marina.
The Marina Los Gigantes is a port for all sorts of sea going crafts. Most of them were like the boat we had.
Many different tours with boats leave from the Marina of the giant cliffs, as I've mentioned already in my page Los Gigantes, whose link find below.
There was one that had anchored in the Marina. It looked almost like the graphic here. It took people out on a boat tour Los Gigantes for whale and dolphin watching. That sounds great. Doesn't it? I had never ever been aware of such Tenerife excursions.
After we had bought fresh water for our boat tour Los Gigantes at a shop just outside our Tenerife Marina.
Now, the small 20 footer was almost ready. It was a nice little vessel. No sails, though.
How much would I love to go sailing in Tenerife opposite Africa... A 5 hour day trip would also be fine.
Our boat seemed so small when we went past the giant Los Gigantes cliffs. They really were almost black. They even looked menacing under the Tenerife sun.
One sees them actually best, from a boat on the water. What an adventure...
Getting warmed by the sun and cooled down by a gentle breeze at the same time was utmost bliss during my boat tour Los Gigantes.
Dangerous, I know, because, one easily may catch a terrible sunburn, especially in Tenerife. At the same time, seeing the white foam in the stern of a shallow boat after it has cut through the waves makes one realize a certain power.
Just figure, to be able to move forward in so much water and, to conquer the waves...
We saw the Isle of La Palma. It seemed so close. I wished we could have done a boat tour Los Gigantes to that Canary island.
But, a license was needed for that, which we didn't have.
The high light of our boat tour (off) Los Gigantes was a brunch in Masca bay.
I even went for a short swim while the anchor kept the boat secured. That swim was good. Not that one needed to cool down...
The boat went a bit fast back to Los Gigantes spraying us with sea water and making us a bit wet.
We saw some dolphins from further away. Nope, no whales.
Sorry, not available now. Will keep you posted. Enjoy the Flipper UNO video tour in the meantime.
The skipper friend who took me on the unforgettable outing lives in Los Gigantes. Needless to tell you, that he loves it.
He also owns a holiday apartment there that is forever booked out, he said.
We had yummy supper in a small Italian restaurant in Los Gigantes. I must get in touch with my boat owner friend to find out what it was called. I had lost touch with him. Don't ask. .. All, my fault...
Find out if the special offer 'no dolphins, 2nd trip for free' still stands...
