This trip was brilliant. We did the 3 hour trip for €27 each. We had read the reviews on here warning of sea sickness so were prepared, we didn't eat breakfast!!! The trip out to find the dolphins was beautiful, finding and seeing the dolphins (about 20) was amazing, but when the boat turned around to return that's when we... More

We went to Gran Canaria especially to see whales and dolphins and ended up going on 9 trips with Spirit of the sea ... we were really lucky and saw whales, dolphins or both on every trip ... Bottlenose, Striped, Spotted and Rough toothed dolphins and Brydes whales too ... plus loggerhead turtles, flying fish, and a huge shoal of... More

This is a great experience to see lots of dolphins in open seas. The trip lasted 2 hours and we had plenty of time with the dolphins who get very close to the boat.We also saw flying fish and that's quite an experience to see them up above the sea. You may if very lucky see a whale( but we... More

This trip delivers exactly what it promises - we were truly thrilled to see a huge family of dolphins swimming and jumping around the boat, it really takes your breath away. Three days a week the trip is extended to include time swimming in a private bay, it was pretty cool to dive right off the boat into the beautiful,... More

Avoid taking this trip if you know you are easily sea sick. Half of the people on board were barfing like animals. We werent sick, maybe because we sat on the side of the boat (best view of the dolphins) instead of sitting in the middle. We didnt eat any breakfast before the trip, maybe that hepled too.

Went on this trip with my husband and two boys aged 4 and 5. We should have known something dodgy was going on when the staff were handing out sick bags before the trip had started. It was very choppy and if people weren't being thrown about the boat, they were being sick. I spent the entire trip clinging onto... More

We were surprised by the amount of sick happening around us, the trip was very long with only a short amount of time actually seeing dolphins, but seeing them in the wild was amazing. Only for those with good sea legs and a strong stomach!!

It was a great experience to see lots of Dolphins in their natural habitat, but we warned you go out very far out & the sea is very rough! I wouldnt recommend this trip if you suffer from sea sickness ;)
