Full description

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.

Booked a day in advance. Unfortunately, I didn't see the mail from the provider and therefore didn't notice the pick-up point from Maspalomas in time. In the previous it said pick up hotel between 9 and 10. Coupling was 0850 at a hotel which we could not see in the mail and on the map. With the taxi to the port, after that everything went smoothly. After boarding the boat, water activities such as jet skiing and parasailing were offered. We opted for the jet ski. Unfortunately, the rush was a bit large and coordination was a bit difficult. Stay at the reef about 70 minutes. Dolphins were also sighted and swam with the boat. If you are looking for a reef with corals and a colorful variety of fish, this is unfortunately not the place for you.

Great tour! Saw a lot of dolphins and some whales, the staff made a great atmosphere and explained a lot about the island. It is advisable to take your own diving goggles and snorkel with you, as the items were quickly sold out. Bus shuttle there and back worked great.

I would have chosen a different place to snorkel. You couldn't snorkel at the given spot because the spot wasn't suitable. Otherwise it was very nice. Nice staff and dolphins were also seen. It was also a great experience for our children. Read well, free drinks only at the snorkel stop!
