Wonderful crew, flying fishes and lots of dolphins
Sep 2019 • Family
My 8 year old son and I had a wonderful trip with the Taxiboat, 2.5 h.
The weather was lovely as it normally is here, we saw six flying fishes on our way out to search for dolphins, and this was amazing, as he has never seen this before. Further out we saw plenty of dolphins swimming around the boat and in front of the boat. One dolphin even showed off a bit, jumping sideways right next to our seats, which my son talked about the reason of the day. The crew, Helena and Aurelio,was impeccable and knew exactly what they were doing, and also respected the dolphins, by not being to close to them, but give them their space. These two wonderful crew both speak good English, Helena also speak German.
We do recommend this trip❤️❤️❤️

The search for dolphins
We were an half hour late to depart from the dock as we waited for a few individuals that decided to come late. The older guy that took us on-board spoke mostly spanish, but managed to throw us a couple of sentences in english. The first hour out on the sea we mostly sailed through the waves searching for the dolphins. Then we joined another boat that found a group of up to ten dolphins. Luckily there was one member of the crew on the boat who spoke english and gave us some information. We stayed there observing the dolphins for maybe half an hour and then departed for gui-gui. As we arrived to the beach the crew said that there was bad weather and we couldn't get off the boat. At the same time there were other ships near the beach and people getting on the shore. We stayed on board for some time, then headed to another smaller beach. When we arrived we were served lunch and offered to take a swim. We were back to the dock an half hour early as there were people sea sick and vomiting. I wish I could give a better review as the crew was friendly, but we didn't get the experince promissed and for the trip we had, the full price we paid was to high. If you can't deliver the experience promissed 'no matter the circumstances', you cannot offer it to the customer and cannot charge for it in full.

Great opportunity to see dolphins in their natural environment
We had a great time on this tour and would thoroughly recommend. The amount of dolphins you will see is incredible - I was expecting maybe one or two but there were hundreds and they really seem to enjoy swimming along with the boat.

On the way back there is also the opportunity to get off the boat and swim in the Gui Gui bay.

You can also add-on a transfer from your hotel which for €5 each return was a no brainer!

Would definitely recommend as something different to do while you are on the island.

Beware!!!!!!
Nov 2018 • Family
We booked the 3.5 hour trip for the afternoon this is the dolphin and gui gui beach trip, my 9 year old son was really excited about the whole trip and had been asking to go for the first few days of our holiday, so we booked it at the desk at harbour.
We paid 108 euros for 3 of us. As we boarded the boat we were given the safety talk then as the captain got on he told everyone he would try getting to the beach but it was quite choppy and windy......I should of asked then, what happens if we don't get the full trip that we paid for, however we were all looking forward to it so much I didn't think unfortunately.
Long story short we were out 1 hour then told the sea was to choppy to continue and we were heading back to the harbour and we would need to sort something with 'the boy' on returning to harbour. We did't see any marine life at all, which to be fair can happen.
On our return all travellers were told they would get a ticket for the next day and under no circumstances would they even offer a partial refund (which I would of been happy with), some people were going home the next day and were unable to take on the free trip.
Now I feel that before we even left the harbour these people knew for a fact we would NOT manage the full trip as sailors know the sea very well, for obvious reasons.
We holiday in Puerto Rico a few times a year and we will never return to this trip, if we had been offered a partial refund and an apology then we most certainly would of returned.
Just beware when parting with your hard earned cash that if trip is cut short you will not receive anything back other than sarcasm and a free ticket!!!!

Jun 2018 • Friends
We were staying in San Agustin but had headed to Puerto Rico for the day and stumbled upon this Taxiboat as we were looking to go Dolphin watching. Having read reviews to becareful about which boats to go on (because apparently some of them would offer the world and ended up being let downs!) But I am so glad we went with this taxi boat because organiser Elena and the Captain Victor were lovely! We paid 48 Euros each and it was a 6 hour day.
They sent a private car to pick the two of us up from our hotel and dropped us to Puerto Rico. Our driver was very lovely and gave us lots of facts and info about Gran Canaria along the journey. She got us to the boat early enough so we could have a little walk whilst it was quiet.
Note: Take a jacket, and maybe even a scarf because it's very windy when they're driving out into sea because it does get cold. Elena did give everyone fleecey blankets too.
We got on the boat at 10am and headed out to sea and eventually, we saw some dolphins, i've never seen so many in my life, it was honestly the most amazing thing ever!
They stopped the boat near one of the beaches in the Mogan area, and the sea looked amazing! It was so green and bright blue, just looked beautiful and then people jumped off the boat and took a swim.
We then drove out elsewhere and stopped the boat again for lunch. They provided such a lovely lunch! Little pasta salad boxes with egg - they were so yummy and filling! garlic bread, bananas, cold soft drinks, cheese and more!
I would definitely recommend doing this, it was really good.

Amazing Trips and Fantastic Crew
Jun 2018 • Couples
Having been to Puerto Rico many times and went out on a lot of dolphin searches with various vendors I can wholeheartedly say Taxiboat GC was by far the best. So much so that we went on 3 excursions with them during our recent stay in Puerto Rico! There are a lot of advantages this boat has over the others but the main one being the speed at which it travels. An example is that on average it can take 1.5 hrs to find dolphins on the other boats, that's if you find any at all, so therefore due to the travel time back to shore you may only get 10-15 minutes to actually spend with the dolphins. Most of the time is spent travelling. We also found that that the crew on the other boats are touch and go, some were nice others not so much.

On our 3 outings with the Taxiboat we had a 100% success rate at finding dolphins and whales. On day one we found dolphins after 30 minutes, on day two we came across pilot whales after just 15 minutes & after spending time with them headed off to find bottlenose dolphins. Day three we found dolphins after just 25 minutes. Other vendors stop at finding one thing due to the travel time and they can't keep up with the dolphins when they swim on. Taxiboat has no issue here which leads to the dolphins upping their game and challenging us to a race as they swim alongside.

As we travelled with them on 3 consecutive days the lovely Elaina (sailor) and expert captain Victor treated us extremely well and wouldn't except payment for the 3rd trip. Lovely, genuine people and such a fantastic service they offer. Seriously, learn from our, at times, costly experiences and get on the Taxiboat.
