Gran Canaria Dolphin and Whale watching trip
Enjoy a lovely boat excursion to see dolphins in Gran Canaria. Although throughout the excursion we will be able to enjoy seeing dolphins, whales and other types of cetaceans, only dolphin sightings are guaranteed. This means that if we return to port without seeing dolphins (which isn’t probable since the sighting percentage is over 90%), we will give you a ticket so that you can repeat the trip at any time during your holiday.
The boat on which we will be having this pleasant adventure, which lasts for approximately 2.5 hours and departs from Puerto Base in Puerto Rico, is a beautiful, comfortable and roomy catamaran designed for dolphin and whale watching. Although it is 30 metres long, 12 wide and has a capacity for 240 passengers, for your comfort you will only be accompanied by a maximum of 200 people during the tour.
The abundant plankton on the coasts of Gran Canaria, hauled in by the so-called “Canary Current,” means that we can find 29 species of cetaceans just 12 miles from the coast. Rough whales, sperm whales, orcas, beaked whales, pilot whales, humpbacks and various types of dolphins are some of the cetaceans that can potentially be seen.
Enjoy seeing large pods of dolphins accompanying us on part of our journey. Observe the spotted, striped, common or bottlenose dolphins jumping and playing alongside us. Take photos or videos of your experience with the dolphins in their natural environment.
To respect the environment and to avoid stressing the dolphins, we never let the same pod of dolphins follow the boat for more than 20 minutes.
But in addition to the main goal of our excursion, dolphin watching, our great catamaran will provide you with a nice boat ride. Relax in its wide cabin, seated on its comfortable chairs or enjoying a drink on the lower part of the boat, where its large bar lounge is located.
In short, this excursion to see dolphins in Gran Canaria offers you a unique experience, with unforgettable moments that we hope will become some of your best memories of your stay on the island.
Dolphin watching guaranteed
Dolphins are usually seen on 90% of outings. If no dolphins, whales or other cetaceans are seen during the boat outing, the crew will give you a ticket to come back at another time. Money will not be refunded. If you want the transfer service, you will have to pay 6 euros per person
Whale watching in Gran Canaria isn’t as common as seeing dolphins. It’s actually quite rare.
As dolphins tend to be closer to the surface and approach boats, whales only come to the surface to breathe, so they’re harder to spot.
Bring sunscreen, also for lips (sea breeze and sun), comfortable clothes and shoes, sunhat and sun glasees.
Take medication against sea sickness (if applicable).
* For operational or safety reasons, the ship can exceptionally dock on the way back in Puerto de Mogán and from there transfer clients by bus to Puerto Rico or to the client’s pick-up point.
