project review

I’ve just got back from South Tenerife where I spent 3 weeks working on the Whale and Dolphin Conservation trip and already wanting to go back so much! From the moment I booked the trip to getting off the plane to the volunteer house everything was so simple, stress-free and a really relaxing start to the holiday!

The volunteer house is located within easy reach of many bus routes which can take you all over the island to explore on your days off and the staff are super friendly and happy to help you with anything at all.

You’ll spend much of your time working on the tourist boats with other volunteers gathering data and photos of cetaceans which is a really special experience and then your evenings are mostly free to explore the tourist areas and have a well-earned swim or bit of sun bathing on the beach (with an ice cream as well!).

Another great part of the trip are the coastal walks to go and look at boat traffic and fish farms, it’s a little bit of a steep walk but with some sensible shoes its perfectly manageable and there are some incredible views on the way up.

Overall I really can’t recommend the project highly enough, I had a superb time and only wish I could have spent longer there with everyone. An amazing opportunity so don’t miss out!
