Today we went to the west of Teneriffa, a small town which is named Los Gigantes. This time, our goal was not for hiking again, but for taking the boat to see the beautiful Atlantic ocean, the lovely dolphins and the famous cliffs in Teneriffa.
On the way to the harbour, we could see a small side of the cliff on this view point.
It was very difficult to find the parking place around the harbour, so we had to park our car a little far away from the harbour, and then walked there.
In Los Gigantes, there are many shops which selling the tickets of different boats. Sometimes, you can find that some shops have the same boat and the same time, but the prices are not the same, and if you buy the tickets near the harbour, usually can get the cheapest tickets.
Now we arrived at the harbour. It was not very big, but had many boats, some were for the visitors, and some were private.
It was the boat which we would take later.
Sitting on the boat, I was very happy and excited, because it was the first time for me to take this kind of boat, and I would see the dolphins soon, hehe!
When our boat was ready to set out, another boat was coming back to the harbour.
Now our boat already left the harbour, looking back, we could see the beautiful town.
The speed of the boat was too fast. Looking at my hair, you could imagine that how windy it was.
Driving on the boundless Atlantic ocean, the feeling was pretty nice. The warm sunshine, the blue sky, the clean water, the fresh air, the beautiful sceneries, everything looked so perfect.
About half hour later, we found many dolphins. This kind of dolphin was different with the one which we saw often. It was black with the round head. It was pity that I forgot the name.
They were dolphin Mama and dolphin baby, they always swam together, very lovely.
After watching the lovely dolphins, our boat turned back to the town, and went to visit the cliffs.
Now our boat stopped here for a while. Each visitor could get a drink and a bag of nuts for free. Besides, the visitors also could jump down to swim.
After visiting the cliffs, our boat arrived stopped at a small fish farm. We found another kind of dolphins there, just the normal ones we saw often on TV, the silvery skin with sharp mouth. But these dolphins did not come close to us, so it was difficult for us to take nice pictures for them.
It was the time to finish this interesting trip on the boat, totally 2 hours. Now we came back to the harbour.
Thereafter, we went to visit the famous special landscape, Masca.
The road to Masca is very small, has many many curves and it's feeling quite adventurous to go there!
Masca consists just of a few houses, all around are mountains with a big canyon in the middle.
Though Masca is quite high up, the weather was so very nice and warm there.
After visiting the Masca, we went to another small town, Los Garachicos.
It's located at the northern coast of Teneriffa.
We took the dinner in this town. I ordered the delicious rabbit meat again, and my honey ordered a beef steak.
