Dolphin and Whale Watching in Gran Canaria

42 reviews | 632 travellers
The weather was no good but we saw a mother whale with one offspring. The captain maneuvered us to very close to them, it was a wonderful experience. Dont forget to bring a jacket it gets super windy. I had some trouble with the booking (i wasnt on the bus drivers list for pickup) but after calling the organizer and the intermediary agency they rescheduled my appointment for the afternoon. 10/10 if you are lucky and get to see the animals
