Here we present the species that are usually found here on site with a short description and a small photo gallery.
Short-finned pilot whale
The pilot whales (Globicephala macrorhynchus) are the most common cetaceans in the Canary Islands. The population is estimated at 2000 individuals living permanently in the Canary Islands.
Bottlenose dolphins are the largest dolphins found here. These potent hunters, often living close to the coast, can reach up to 3.5 m in length.
Atlantic spotted dolphin
Spotted dolphins are small, very playful animals that follow shoals of fish in very large groups on the Canary Islands.
The Bryde's whale (Balaenoptera edeni) is the only common baleen whale. Individual animals or mothers with calves regularly appear off our coasts.
The common dolphins, formerly very widespread in the Mediterranean, owe their name to their local abundance. They usually live offshore and are particularly attractively marked.
