1. Gran Canaria: Catamaran Dolphin Watch Cruise with Snorkeling

Board a catamaran in Puerto Rico de Gran Canaria and head out into the Atlantic Ocean in search of dolphins and whales. Marvel at picturesque views of Gran Canaria's coastline from the water, sip on complimentary soft drinks, and go snorkeling or swimming in the ocean. Your cruise begins with a convenient pickup from your hotel and transportation to the Puerto Base harbor, where you'll board your boat. Then, set sail to explore the waters off the coast of Gran Canaria, going in search of dolphins, pilot whales, minke whales, and more. Watch from the deck or through the glass panels below deck, keeping an eye out for these magnificent creatures and other aquatic life. Then, get ready to experience the ocean firsthand as your boat anchors in one of the small bays along the coastline. Go for a swim, enjoy some snorkeling, or make use of the onboard toboggan slide. If you prefer not to get wet, just sit back and relax, admire the view, and sip on a complimentary soft drink. Spend around 45 minutes enjoying the ocean before your cruise continues with a return journey to the harbor. Your bus will be waiting here to take you back to your accommodation.

Met all the crew at the location and they got us fitted into our suits and wet shoes with no issues, everyone was very friendly and welcoming. We then all hopped into car to amadores beach where we then got dressed and headed to sea, the girl taking us explained everything for us very well and let us get accustomed to the snorkel in the sea without making us feel rushed. She then took us out for just under an hour around the bay where we spotted lots of fish, sea urchins and even an octopus! Was absolutely beautiful and would highly recommend it. Breathing in the snorkel does take some getting used to but all you need is five minutes to figure out how to breath properly and realise you’ll not drown under the water if you’re sensible and not panicking! Would absolutely do it again and would urge everyone to give it a go. You’re in safe, friendly, knowledgeable hands with the crew and I couldn’t fault a single thing.

The staff were super friendly and explained everything in a way that was easy to understand. The diving was very exciting. We even had the opportunity to borrow a Go Pro (for €25 with 8GB) to record our trip. We took this chance and got great results. They even gave us a free ride to our hotel which was close to the beach where we were diving. I can warmly recommend. :)
