Shadow from the Sea

Where on Tenerife can you see a whale without risking getting wet? Loro Parque doesn’t count and anyway, chances are you’ll get more soaked at the orca show than taking one of the whale and dolphin watching trips out of Los Gigantes.

The answer is in Los Silos on Tenerife’s north west coast. This giant skeleton of a sei whale (the third largest species of whale) is a result of collaboration between conservation groups, local business and the Canarian Government and is a tribute to the relationship between man and the sea and the giant mammals which inhabit it.

It’s a wonderful image, but is located in an area of Isla Baja which most visitors to Tenerife don’t go anywhere near.
