Los Gigantes with its cliffs in the municipality of  Santiago del Teide in Tenerife is one of the most spectacular landscapes of the Canary Islands, listed as a Protected Natural Area within the Parque Rural de Teno.

These are vertical walls up to 600 metres high, formed by basaltic lava flows that penetrate the sea.

Their seabeds are 30 metres deep and have a spectacular wealth of fauna, ideal for snorkelling and diving.

There are numerous companies offering different water activities in the waters of the cliffs, such as: kayaking, jet skis, paddle surfing, whale watching, etc.

The best way to enjoy these cliffs is to embark on one of the many options of boats and catamarans that operate from the port of Los Gigantes, to observe the bottlenose dolphins and pilot whales that inhabit these waters or if you prefer you can also go deep-sea fishing.

It is customary for the boat to anchor for a few minutes in the bay of Masca to enjoy a swim in these spectacular waters, as well as having the opportunity to enjoy lunch on board the boat.

Below sea level these cliffs do not continue into the depths. The seabed in this area is only about 30 metres deep and due to its difficult access is home to a natural wealth that attracts numerous divers and fishermen.

In Tenerife there is a stable colony of pilot whales, which are also known as pilot whales, this consists of about 250 specimens, which inhabit the strait that separates the island of Tenerife from the island of La Gomera and to observe them is possible at any time of year.

The bottlenose dolphin or also known as the bottle-nosed dolphin is the most common and best known of the dolphins because it is usually the dolphin that lives in captivity in dolphinariums.

These dolphins in the wild, usually live in groups of 10 or 12 individuals and swim at a speed of 5-10 km / hour, although in short stretches can even reach speeds of 35 km / hour. They have to come to the surface to breathe every 5 to 8 minutes.

The cetacean watching in the Canary Islands Archipelago has been regulated since 1995 by the Canary Islands Government.
