Dolphins & Swimming Gran Canaria

If you have always dreamed of watching whales and dolphins in the wild, Gran Canaria is the place for you. The Canaries are one of the best places to see them, because of the 79 or so dolphin and whale species worldwide, 29 can be found here. You will mostly see schools of dolphins, and there is a 98% chance of seeing them. It is overwhelming when the boat is surrounded by these sociable sea creatures and they swim along in the bow wave. With a bit of luck, you will also have the great privilege of encountering a whale. On the way back, the catamaran stops near the coast, where there is something to eat, swimming fun and water sports can be booked on board at reduced prices. A ride on the fun banana boat is even available for free. This dolphin tour is without a doubt one of the absolute best holiday experiences on Gran Canaria.

For whale and dolphin watching you set off in Puerto Rico. On request, you will be picked up and also brought back from Maspalomas, Playa del Ingles, Puerto de Mogán and many other holiday resorts in south Gran Canaria.

Please note that although the probability of a sighting is extremely high, it cannot be guaranteed. The experienced crew will do everything necessary to make this extraordinary experience possible.

Please keep in mind that the dolphins and whales are not to be disturbed during this tour. We therefore ask for your understanding that the boat will always keep at a distance from the animals. Approach and interaction does always exclusively come from the dolphins depending on their humor.

    This was probably the worst trip I’ve ever been on.
    Yes we have seen dolphins for 5 minutes but that was it.
    A lot of the passenger’s (about 40%) were sick due to the waves. I got sick a few hours after. It was a very crowdy trip with lot of passengers (about 200) and with a crew that weren’t helpful or friendly in any way. But yes we have seen dolphins but that was it.

    Quite expensive.
    When we got to the boat it was already full, so we had to stand up.
    The boat’s engine stalled just after departure, but their mechanic managed to fix that part.
    They managed to find a group of dolphins, which we got to look at for maybe 15 minutes.
    There was free access to cheap beer. Which was lucky, because otherwise I probably would have jumped overboard.
