This is Expecting You:

Whale and Dolphin Search Gran Canaria

In the harbour of Puerto Rico you start the whale and dolphin search excursion. See one of the most amazing creatures of this planet. Watching them in their natural habitat – live this absolutely impressive experience. Due to the enormous diversity of species in the waters around Gran Canaria there are almost 100% sightings all year round for dolphins! But do not worry, in the exceptional case that you should be unlucky and do not see any dolphins; you will get free tickets for another whale and dolphin search excursion! In contrary to the rather shy whales, Dolphins are extremely sociable and love to swim in the bow wave of the boat and entertain the passengers with their jumps. And if you are really lucky, you may also meet killer whales (Orcas), who are spotted from time to time close to Gran Canaria.

On Thursdays and Sundays the tour can be about 15 minutes longer, as the participants may be offered a short bathing stop. So if you want to take a dip in the Atlantic Ocean pack your bathing suit provisionally. This offer is not an integral part of the tour and is not necessarily accomplished.

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.

For participating a whale and dolphin search trip you can be picked up free of charge from Maspalomas, Playa del Ingles and many other places in the south of Gran Canaria. Photos 8, 9, 10, 12 on Pixabay

Both excursions we took are awesome! I liked the CANCO service very much, well organized. I would rate 5 out of 5 for your services

If 5 stars is the best, then I give 4.5 stars :-) The trip was great! We saw dolphins that even came right up to our boat. The organization was great too! The boat was fine (the seats were wet though). The lady who accompanied us was friendly. Unfortunately, the bus trip from the hotel to the port took a long time, because we stopped at many hotels . But, of course, I am glad that they offer a pick-up service and that it is included in the price. And the CANCO service, your quick reaction to my reservation and my email was excellent!

We went on a cruise with children (10 and 7 years). From booking to mooring in the harbor everything was perfect. We didn't expect to see more than a lot of dolphins - there were tens of them :-). We were coming back full of experiences. Recommended.

It all worked out wonderfully and we had a lot of fun on the trip! Thank you so much!

The pickup was very punctual and the entire staff friendly. It was a bit rocky, but that's part of a boat trip. There was a free drink for everyone. When we were in the middle of a swarm of dolphins, they turned off the engine and everyone could look in peace and take pictures. I liked it...
