My travel in Europe:
One week by walk, bus, boat and car at Tenerife, 2016
Day VI: Adeje, whale and dolphin safari:
The second day in Costa Adeje we want to do some exiting. Yesterday we found information about whale safaris. Yes, that will be exiting!
Google Map: The coast outside Costa Adeje.
Up in the morning and visit our coffee shop for breakfast. Then a walk to the harbor where the boat is waiting for us 10 am.
The sunbathing people hasn't wake up yet, but later there will be a lot of people here because this day will be hot.
Whale and Dolphin safari at Costa Adeje:
The boat that take us out on a whale safari is a Maxicat, a sailing catamaran, maybe it can take hundred people.
In the back ground, the Puerto Colon Beach:
Even if the boat has sails, it goes by the engine.
Included in the whale safari was a free lunch.
Now we have left the coast and can start looking for whales.
No whales there.
And no whales there.
Exhausted of all this looking for whales the crew asked us if we want something to drink, yes, we want water with ice, it's hot today.
The skipper take us even more far away from the coast.
Look! What's there, a shark? No, our first whale contact.
All looking, was it just one whale?
No, there were a lot of them.
The whales we see are Pilot whales.
At Wikipedia you find more information about the Pilot whale:
Another catamaran catch us up.
The last two whales say good buy to us.
This is the La Gomera, one of the smaller Canary islands.
At Wikipedia you find more information about La Gomera:
La Caleta de Adeje
La Caleta de Adeje or close to.
The boat anchor here in the bay, bathing times!
This was an exiting day, if I had know that we should do a whale safari I had brought with me the telephoto lens.
Harbor of Costa Adeje.
From here we took a slow walk back to the hotel, enjoy the views and the sunshine. A very hot day and we were happy that we went out on sea this day.
Puerto Colon Beach:
We expected the beach to be crowded by people a hot day like this, but not.
Back on the hotel and we take a nap.
We wake up hungry, take walk to the beach where we was earlier this day. We have seen a lot of restaurants that we liked. During the dinner we got this Sunset, the great orange light.
