Cruise from Los Cristianos

The harbour in Los Cristianos is the place to go if you fancy taking a trip out to sea on one of the various excursions that are available off the southern coast.

Search for dolphins

The waters off the coast around Playa de las Americas are popular with dolphins so a trip out to sea to try and spot the creatures playing in their natural environment is a must. There are various boats that operate trips so you’ll have plenty of options to chose from.
