Dolphin watching in Gran Canaria
Gran Canaria is an exceptional place to go on a dolphin and whale watching boat as 27 of the world's 80 species of cetaceans have been recorded around the Canary Islands.
Common species include resident bottlenose dolphins (like Flipper) and short-finned pilot whales. Other species that visit Gran Canaria ever year are Risso's dolphins, common dolphins, spotted dolphins, spinner dophins, minke whales and the mysterious beaked whales.
With a 98% success rate and a large, stable boat, the Multiaquatic is an exceptional way to head out into the Atlantic to meet its most beautiful inhabitants.
Unlike other Gran Canaria boats, the Multiaquatic also includes a swimming stop on some of its trips; an excellent bonues on a hot Gran Canaria day. On Fridays you can even combine dolphin watching with a visit to the Puerto de Mogán market.
Now you know why it's called the Multiaquatic boat!
Alex Says: All dolphin and whale watching boats have to follow a strict Blue Boat code of conduct that guarantees the peace and safety of the animals. Please make sure the boat you choose abides by these rules before booking your dolphin watching trip.
