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! 😂

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.

A fantastic trip! Saw loads of dolphins, so many we lost count! The crew were great and were stopping to remove plastic bags from the water one of which was near a baby turtle. We were so lucky and thoroughly enjoyed it.

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.
