About
There are few experiences as wonderful as enjoying the spectacle of animals in their natural environment and without a doubt being able to see dolphins and whales up close is one of the most impressive. Sometimes there will be a few and sometimes there will be thousands of them but it's always fascinating On our excursions you can see from the small common dolphin to the largest animal that has lived on the earth; the blue whale. But you will also have the possibility to see turtles, flying fish and other marine species. You can see the beautiful coast from another perspective and you will also have the possibility to swim in the sea if you want.

What to expect
We will go to look for dolphins and whales to observe them but we can also see turtles, flying fish and other marine fauna. We see dolphins or whales in almost 100% of our excursions but on very few occasions it may be we do not see any whales or dolphins and if this happens, we will give you a bonus to come free for another day on the boat. Before entering the port we will stop to bathe in the sea. Do not forget your glasses, fins and towel. During the excursion you will have free soft drinks and water. The ship has a place to be comfortably seated and also has windows under the sea surface to see dolphins or whales swim next to the ship when they approach.

Saw plenty of dolphins!
Apr 2019 • Family
We thoroughly enjoyed our 2.5-3 hour boat trip out to see dolphins (no whales or turtles seen on our trip sadly) but plenty of dolphins! Our only criticism was it was a short amount of time actually seeing the dolphins - there were at least four other excursions and each company seemed to respect one another and would stop near the dolphins then let another boat near - good system I suppose - but did mean each boat only were I'd say close up for about 5 minutes.

Years ago my fiance and I were in the Dominican Republic and we went on a whale watching trip and by comparison that was much better as the boat stayed near the whales for I'd say likely on for half hour. Hence given this 4/5 stars. Would still recommend it if you've not seen wild dolphins before or if you've got kids. If we were to go back to Gran Canaria I don't think we'd go on this trip again.

The tour guide spoke broken English but did hand a book around and told everyone which type of dolphins we were seeing and then left everyone ample time to read about them. He told us about other animals they sometimes see. Sadly none of the others were playing out when we were there.

One thing I did notice was on the sales posters etc most companies had photos of Orcas.... And you'll never see them in the Canaries! 😂

Great sea trip, not for all perople
Mar 2020
Wewent on a 2 hour trip and saw a lot of dolphins. It was a more rough trip than anticipated and several of the passengers got really seasick. We went out from the harbour with no waves but after app 10 minutes the waves god the ship rolling so it was not possible to walk around. After app 45 minutes we were in the middle of a lot of dolphins and ejoyed this for app 15 minutes, then back to the harbour. It is not recommended to bring small children on this trip.

Really great experience
Feb 2020 • Family
We had 2 and 8 year old boys with us. The ride to dolphins and back is a bit long for children because they are not usually too patient. Overall experience is really nice and definitely worth a visit. We saw sea turtles and lots of dolphins. Crew is also nice and helpful. Strong recommendation is to take worm clothes because even with hot weather the wind on ocean is chilly.

3 hours at sea, 30 minutes of dolphins
Staff were very pleasant and we did get to see dolphins but no sign of whales or mention of them. We chose to book the 3 hour trip expecting to have more time with the sea life. In reality this was about half hour watching dolphins and the rest was a boat trip with a 10 min stop at the end for anyone who wanted to swim from the boat. If I were to do it again I’d probably just book the 2 hour session as I don’t think the extra hour at sea gave me anything more. We were lucky that we had great weather so no sea sickness.

Fantastic trip
Highly recommended. We saw several flying fish, lots of dolphins and two whales, so well worth the three hour trip.

The staff were superb, very knowledgeable, helpful and kind.

What made my trip? Well apart from seeing the dolphins of course it was the fact that they stopped three times to remove plastic debris from the sea, well done folk.

It was choppy to put it mildly and I’m never seasick but really wish I’d taken some preventative meds as did start to feel ill. Might have been others throwing up that set me off to be honest. So whilst the sea looks calm don’t be fooled as it certainly gets rough further out.

Because we saw so much wildlife we didn’t have much time for a swim stop but those that were brave enough managed a quick dip.

With a little luck ...
We called the day before to book a tour, after we realized that the online booking time expires 48 hours before the tour. Conversation in English without a problem; German would have worked most likely, too.

Pick up work as announced; driver spoke little English, but enough and was very friendly.

We were very lucky: perfect weather conditions (sun out, smooth sea) and not too many passengers. The crew handed out blankets (January, ocean, speed ...) and explained in English, German, and Dutch, what (not) to do and what to expect.

We were lucky and got to see whales and dolphins!
Staff pointed them out and manoeuvred the boat close to the animals without bothering them too much/long.

It's nature and you need patience and ... a little luck.

Whales and dolphins
Jan 2020 • Friends
It aas a great trip. We saw Bryde's whales and bottlenosed dolphins and a sea turtle. I got seasick but it was worth it. Don't bring small children as the waves are crazy even on a good day. The crew was terrific! So grateful for this experience.

Dolphin spotting in the wild Atlantic
Dec 2019
we chose to do the 2 hour trip at 10am on a Tuesday morning and reserved our places by email before paying in cash on the day. It’s advisable to arrive at the Puerto Base harbour around 15 minutes before departure – the boat is easy to find once you arrive. A number of the previous reviews that we had seen mentioned that sea sickness could be an issue. Neither of us really suffers from sea sickness, but we had some tablets left over from a cruising holiday so took some a couple of hours before we boarded. We were glad that we did as, despite the seas close to shore being pretty calm, they were much ‘livelier’ once we were 6km out in the Atlantic. Even with the tablets, I felt a bit queasy, so I definitely wouldn’t recommend this trip for anyone who gets seasick! Apart from this, the cruise was absolutely brilliant – we saw about 20 dolphins and they spent around 20 minutes swimming alongside our boat. The crew provided a helpful commentary and it was obvious that safety was a priority. Recommended!
