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...

Many thanks to previous reviewers taking the time to submit feedback on this company as they are under-stated and brilliant. 😃 Having done my homework on TA, I walked down to the harbour past touts galore, I walked two full sides of the harbour in blazing sun only to find the Ocean Explorer is on the same stretch as the...

Been going for a number of years to Los Gigantes .. crew and staff very friendly and helpful. What I like about them is because the boat is smaller you get closer to the dolphins and whales.. I couldn't recommend them enough 5 star all the way

We booked after seeing the many reviews on here and was so glad we did. We saw pilot whales up so close and also experienced dolphins jumping out of the sea within a few metres of us! Little boat which made it more personal. Tip of the day - don't forget to apply sun cream!!

My partner and I booked on a whale trip only the day before we wanted to go and they still had spaces on the later sailing. But I would recommend booking rather than turning up. It was an amazing experience. We were not crowded on the boat and it was very comfortable. The skipper was very respectful approaching the wales... More
