Alexander von Humboldt II:
Santa Cruz de Tenerife (ES) - Santa Cruz de Tenerife (ES)

09 December - 16 December 2015

Step on board and start a new chapter in your experience booklet. Search for whales and dolphins in the subtropical waters surrounding the Canary Islands. Feel the warm wind, the sun on your skin, and breathe in the fresh air. The volcanic islands are a magnificent sight during the star filled nights. Open to all ages, minimum age 14 years.

Ports

Santa Cruz de Tenerife is the shared capital of the Canary Islands, together with Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. The central square Plaza de España is a real eye-catcher, situated between the ocean and the old, bustling city centre. Lose yourself in the crowded alleys, find a spot on one of the terraces, or leave town and discover the rugged volcanic landscape. The museum of Nature and Man is worth a visit. Chances are you’ll find pilot whales in the waters around Tenerife, so keep an eye out!
