• CEDED pleasure boat recorded these beautiful images from on board, at the height of Playa Quemada

On Sunday, a boat ran into this spectacular school of dolphins off the coast of Lanzarote. The images were recorded near Playa Quemada and speak for themselves.

It is common to see dolphins in the waters of Lanzarote at this time of year, but the large number of mammals that congregated this time near the boat is striking.


This sighting near Lanzarote and Fuerteventura shows the enormous wealth, both in species and in marine ecosystems, that the Canarian sea treasures. The numerous species of cetaceans that inhabit and visit the insular coastline are one of the greatest attractions of the marine area of ​​the Fuerteventura and Lanzarote Biosphere Reserve.


The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) has requested the declaration of the aforementioned marine strip as a Whale and Dolphin Sanctuary, since a third of these species of cetaceans on the planet are concentrated here. The common dolphin, tropical rockfish, bottlenose dolphin, gray pilot whale, sperm whales and beaked whales are, among others, some of the marine mammals that coexist on the Conejero coast.
