We drove to Los Gigantes but had problems finding the 'Marina'. If you click through to Google maps on your generic smart phone from Tripadvisor it shows Ocean Explorer's location as just off the coast in the next town down. The real location on Google maps is Puerto de Los Gigantes on Calle Poblado Marinero. You can park on the... More

we went on Aug 4th we liked the idea of a money back guarantee as we felt they wouldn't offer that if we they were not confident of their success. We wanted a small boat so we would be closer to the water and hopefully a better chance of seeing something this boat only take a max of 11 people... More

Well worth the visit to los gigantes for this trip. Great value for money and just a small boat full of people. To see dolphins up close to the boat was a fantastic experience :-)

After travelling out after 1/2 hour we saw pilot whales and dolphins. The captain of the boat really knows the best places to go and gets really close for plenty of photo opportunites. Heading back along the coast we saw a few lone turtles and heading back to the harbour a fin whale and more dolphins. At 15 euros each... More

We saw Pilot whales very close to our boat also a Fin whale from a distance. A highlight for us was seeing a pod of dolphins near the boat - one dolphin having a two week old calf with it. You also get fantastic views of the cliffs at Los Gigantes. Our family all enjoyed this and we would highly... More

All around the boat, under the boat fantastic. We spent around half hour with these amazing animals. Our guide (sorry can't... More

I have been on three other whale watching trips and never seen whales. This was amazing. Lorenzo knew just where to go and there were a ton of whales. They came so close to the boat it was amazing. There were baby whales with their mothers and solo whales as well. We also toured the side of Los Gigantes which... More
