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.

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.

The trip was very nice and fun. I would recommend it.

The trip was great - we saw many dolphins and a small whale. And also the short return trip from the big boat by speedboat was cool. What could be improved: Some of seats are wet, which you only notice after sitting for a while. A note from the crew would be helpful . So that you can check this in advance or put a plastic bag over it as protection.
