Enjoy this great dolphin search tour in Gran Canaria. The thrill of watching dolphins and whales in their natural environment is an experience not to be missed in Gran Canaria.
The waters around the Canaries are not overfished and thanks to the abundance of food there are dolphins all year round. Around this area of the Atlantic Ocean, there is a great variety of cetaceans, sea turtles, flying fish, and sometimes we can see the elusive whales.
Dolphin search tour Spirit of the sea
Enjoy a day on-board this fun dolphin search tour with family and friends. This boat tour is based in the harbor Puerto Base, in Puerto Rico. The boat was purposely designed for this activity. In addition to the safety aspects, the comfort of the passengers was also considered and that the maximum number of passengers could have a place with the best possible view of the sea to enjoy the marine life on the surface: Dolphins, whales, sea turtles, flying fish and more.
She has a large glass bottom in both keels with enough room for 15 people in each glass bottom. During navigation, however, access is closed to avoid possible falls when moving the boat. These entrances open when we are close to the animals and sea conditions allow. Safety always comes first.
You’ll be able to see many different types of cetaceans as 29 of the 79 have been seen in the Canary Islands. We find ourselves in a very privileged area for observing these incredible creatures taking into account that many of the cetaceans live exclusively in polar regions, rivers, and limited areas.
Dolphins and whales are present in Canarian waters throughout the year so we are almost sure to be able to see them. In case we do not see any type of cetacean, we will give you an invitation ticket to return another day (depending on availability).

Spirit of the sea Puerto Rico
The sea is their passion, the team lives it intensely every day, they understand its importance and the need for its care. Unfortunately, they see daily the harmful consequences of men in this environment and they always try to contribute what we can to preserve it. Drifting nets, plastic bags, plastic rings that bind beverage cans, and a pile of other trash that often becomes a death trap for marine wildlife
Often we manage to rescue turtles or birds, and then they are taken to the Wildlife Rescue Centre. There, they are cared for until they can be returned to the sea as soon as their condition permits. On other occasions, they find dolphins or whales with problems and try to rescue them from the deadly traps.
We also offer other great Gran Canaria boat trips in Pasito Blanco like the Blue spirit Catamaran, the Blue Dream sailing boat trip along the coast Maspalomas, the Five Star Boat Trip and the Afrikat excursion in Puerto Rico. If your in the Mogán area, we recommend a relaxing trip on the Karolka sailing yacht.
