Dolphin & Whale Searching - Daily

80 species of cetaceans can be found in the seas and oceans of the world and until now 29 of them have been seen in the canaries.

When you think about it that's one third of the worlds population, and considering some species live exclusively in the polar regions, rivers and very limited areas, we find ourselves in a very privaleged area for observing these magnificent creatures.

There are two different excursions; the "normal" 2 hours dolphin and whale watching trip and, 3 days a week (mo. wend. and fri) one extra hour afterwards for a swim stop in a bay before we sail back to the harbour.
