We were so impressed with Andreas and Nicolas. We went twice. They both were so friendly and knowledgable. We had a different experience each time. We were lucky enough to see a large pod of whales and dolphins. A real bonus was the turtle on the way back. Thank you for making our holiday u forgettable.

Our boat trip to see Dolphins along the coastline at Los Gigantes was just fantastic! Perfect for the kids. (Apparently the whale trip is really good too but is quite a long trip out to sea first so if you've got young kids, the dolphin one we did might be best). It is not guaranteed that you will see any... More

Wow wow and wow. Went on the Ocean Explorer yesterday and it's the best €15 you'll ever spend. A small boat -12 max - that gets really close to an awesome spectacle of nature. We saw short finned pilot whales in several family pods. The first group also had dolphins hanging around and as a real bonus we saw turtles.... More

Fantastic boat trip to see the dolphins and the cliffs around Los Gigantes. There are lots of companies offering trips in the harbour but we looked on TripAdvisor before reserving and were so glad we chose Ocean Explorer based on this experience. 1) Smaller boat; maximum 12 people and much closer to the dolphins, we saw these within about ten...

Whale, whale, whale wasn't that a treat! Me and my boyfriend went on this boat trip and loved every minute. We went on the early boat trip to see just whales but were very happy to also see lots of dolphins as well! Would definetely choose the Ocean Explorer over other boats as the boat was a lot smaller and... More

If your prime intention is to see the dolphins this trip cant be beaten. We went in June and saw dolphins within 10 mins of setting off. The boat is very fast and can be at the scene in no time unlike the big boats. Only holds 11 and the driver. No sun cover so take drinks and sun protection.... More

After previously consulting Tripadvisor I booked over the phone Ocean Explorer for our family trip to see the Pilot Whales and Dolphins. We had a great day weather wise and the Captain took us at a comfortable pace out to where the Whales were and Dolphins were. We had a super time and the weather added to the experience. Great...
