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

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

Went out on one of the morning trips to see the whales. Fortunately we saw the dolphins too on the way to where the Pilot whales were. Amazing seeing these majestic animals in their natural habitat. After stopping for 10 mins around the Dolphins, we headed furher out towards La Gomera where we found the whales, fantastic. Lots of them... More

Great experience. They actually gave us a choice for the route, because different populations of whales were in very different places today. They got the names of the animals right, contrary to some of the other operators in the harbour.. We saw bottle nose dolphins and a fin whale. Nice people, spotted that my husband is a keen bird watcher... More
