Very nice trip. Good guiding. The boat is an old genuine fishing boat. Good view around and very little risk of getting sea sick. We were lucky to see a group of whales very closely.

Great boat and friendly crew. On top of that a beautiful day and some pilot dolphins. We were informed of how the dolphins live and environmental aspects were also considered.

A very friendly way of watching whales and dolphins in there natural habitat. You get close to the abimals if they let you and there is no hassle or chasing just to see them. A great trip off the coast

It was for me the first time on such a small boat and my first trip to watch dolphins and whales - and I could not have been in better hands. Nicole and Carmen took great care of us, shared a lot of details that are important to understand water-wildlife, and most of all I loved to get infected by... More

Just a brilliant trip. We saw spotted and bottle nosed dolphins. We were up close to the animals when they wanted to play and race the boat but kept a good distance when we saw a hunting school. Our guide melaine was warm and enthusiastic. to be aware before you go there is no shade so you need a good... More

Having reviewed the different whale watching tour operators we decided that Oceano was the one we wanted to go with. Their respectful and conservation minded approach to whale and dolphin watching was the most important thing to us. Some of the other operators offering sangria and a tuna lunch was not what we were looking for! We had left booking... More

Once you`ve done a tour with OCEANO you kinda get addicted to it. Some years ago I already went on a tour with OCEANO and had amazing sightings and also this time I wasn`t disappointed at all: Bryde`s whales close to our boat and almost in touching distance - maybe the most amazing thing I`ve ever seen! The crew was... More

We had two trips while on holidays recently and both times were lucky to see both spotted dolphins, in their hundreds, and pilot whales. Boat was roomy and we got individualised English explanations, as others on the boat spoke German. Take plenty of water with you if hot and be prepared for climb up or down ladder from harbour wall,... More

From the minute we left the harbor and began to ride the waves I knew that even if we never encountered a sea animal, the trip would be enjoyable and worth the effort. But who am I kidding, the dolphins were a bit late in coming, like in all of La Gomera- they take their time getting up in the... More

It is a wooden boat for a maximum of 10 people and this is great! You can sit in any place, it is not crowded and the captain and the guide are great! You can see how they enjoy with the tour, always explaining! We saw two types of dolphins and two of whales! And they asked us if we... More
