On this educational school tour, students will work with dolphins and whales as they are introduced to marine biology and coastal ecosystems
On this educational tour, your students will travel to Tenerife to learn about dolphin and whale conservation.
Day 1: Arrive in Tenerife
Your school group will arrive at Tenerife South Airport where you’ll meet your tour leader who will be with you for the duration of your educational expedition. You’ll start with an orientation discussion about what to expect on your expedition and an introduction to Tenerife.
Day 2: Orientation and Training
Start the day with a health and safety briefing, followed by training where you’ll learn about our local projects and partnerships. As part of your training, you’ll learn about cetaceans (whales and dolphins) and prepare for your first expedition activities.
Day 3: Test your Teamwork and Species Knowledge
After learning about pilot whales and identification techniques, your students will be split into teams to test their conservation knowledge as a group. Take part in a fun species identification quiz that challenges your communication and teamwork skills.

Your school students will be stepping foot onto the Canary Islands of Spain, off the coast of northwest Africa. This Spanish archipelago is made up of seven volcanic islands surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean. Its waters quench the desert conditions from the nearby Western Sahara and harbour some of the most interesting marine life. See sea turtles peacefully gliding between the sandy ocean floor and its sun kissed surface, and watch pods of Atlantic dolphins socialising with their friends.
As a team, you'll learn how to use a compass while boating and how to navigate at sea using local locations and landmarks. Develop your leadership skills by navigating to particular monitoring points. Working as a team, you'll monitor, take notes and record data on cetaceans.
Continue cetacean data collection. While taking part in a fin identification process, you'll also capture the behaviour and the number of species and juveniles you've seen. Your group will end the day by doing a beach clean followed by a swim.
After a brief introduction to marine litter and pollution, you'll take turns to lead your group on a beach clean. Working as a team, you'll learn the importance of working with others, delegation, trust and group communication.
"As a result of this trip, we have three students considering picking up mechanical engineering at university, and a host of students considering STEM-related A-Levels. An action-packed, awe-inspiring week away. I can't wait to go back next year!"
"I believe the memories created on an international school trip can drastically enhance a student's entire learning experience. Being immersed in real-life learning is the most powerful educational experiences one can gain."
"The experience for us was personalised, accessible and our consultant was interested in us. This makes the world of difference when you're travelling with students"
“This trip has taken the top spot for my career highlights to date! The experiences and the way in which the students conducted themselves and embraced opportunities, even when they were out of their comfort zone, will stay with me forever. I don’t know if it gets better than this.”
Explore two of America's most famous cities, Washington and New York City! Further students' understanding of history and politics in the US, and its impact on the rest of the world.
