What to expect from this boat tour in Gran Canaria?
In our Canary Coast, up to 30 species of cetaceans have been identified, which makes our islands one of the places in the world with the greatest diversity of cetaceans and the largest in Europe. Fin whales, dolphins, sperm whales, orcas or porpoises are some of the families to which these 30 species belong.
Unlike fish that lay eggs, have scales and breathe through gills. The cetaceans are a mammal that feeds on maternal milk when they are born and like us, breathe air, has lungs and warm blood.
We will sail from Puerto Rico along the southwest coast of the island, in search of dolphins and whales in their natural habitat. Our multilingual professional crew will keep you informed about the sightings and will help you to identify the different species.
The Spirit of the Sea is a boat with a capacity for 97 people and equipped with a large glass bottom between the boat hulls, which allows you to observe the marine life that is under the waves of the sea.
We are almost sure that we can see dolphins, but if this were not the case, we will give you a bonus so you can return for free any other day and repeat our trip.
You can choose between a trip of 2 or 3 hours and both include soft drinks and water. On the 3 hour trip, we will stop in a sheltered bay to take a swim.
Our company since its creation has been committed to making sightings with total respect towards these incredible animals and has the appropriate permits from the Canary Islands Government to carry out this activity.
Being able to observe dolphins and maybe whales in their natural environment is an absolutely enriching experience that makes us all supporters of the marine environment and ambassadors for the protection of these fantastic animals.
We offer two different experiences:
- 2-hour tour
- 3-hour tour
The main difference is that, on the 3-hour tour, you will be able to stop for a swim.
During the booking process, we will ask you where you are staying so that we can confirm your pick-up point and time. A few days before the activity, you will receive a message with the details of your pick-up service.
We offer pick-up service from the following areas:
Mogan, Taurito, Playa del Inglés, Maspalomas, San Agustin and Bahia Feliz.
If you are in an area other than those described, you should go to the nearest meeting point on your own or go directly to the port. Please tell us where you are staying and we will assign you the nearest meeting point.
During the booking process, we will ask you for the name of your accommodation to confirm the pick-up time and the meeting point closest to the indicated location. This information will appear on your voucher.
