In our trip one person got seasick but the staff was very helpfull. Main important part is... More

Lots of waves so I got seasick. Also we did not see any whales. It was too hot, the best thing about this experience was the swim which really helped me stop vomiting

Markus M, Seasickness at Oceano Whale Watching La Gomera, responded to this review

Dear Gitte, thank you very much that you took your time to write an evaluation. We are really sorry that you felt sick on the boat. Anyway we want to point out that we inform our passengers about the conditions and seasickness is up to personal prerequisites. Furthermore our sighting rate is at 95,6% but surely we cannot guarantee any... More

A fantastic experience. I really appreciated that they strictly only take 10 people out at a time, this leaves space for you to move around the boat a bit to catch the sights. We saw at least two different species of Dolphin and a big Sea Turtle! We didn't spot any whales on this trip but the dolphins more than... More

We really wanted to go on a trip with Oceano having been dolphin and whale-watching 2 years ago with them. We were not disappointed, we went last Monday (16th March) and it was fantastic. The lovely crew are rightfully respectful of these wonderful animals. We cannot wait to return! Many thanks for another unforgettable experience :) Katherine & Vanessa (Uk... More

A unique and awesome experience! We did the excursion on Monday 5 January 2015 and we were really lucky as we have seen whales on several occasions and many dolphins gratifying us with amazing jumps. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and explanation clear and easy to understand. Excursions are done in small group of 10 with small boat. Oceano is... More

On departing from the harbour, the tour guide told us loads of information about the local dolphins and whales. She was very knowledgeable and passionate about the animals. Within minutes off setting off we saw a glimpse of the first dolphins! The boats are small, with only ten people in each tour so as not to be too disturbing to... More
