Gran Canaria: Catamaran Dolphin Watch Cruise with Snorkeling

Board a catamaran in Puerto Rico de Gran Canaria and head out into the Atlantic Ocean in search of dolphins and whales. Marvel at picturesque views of Gran Canaria's coastline from the water, sip on complimentary soft drinks, and go snorkeling or swimming in the ocean. Your cruise begins with a convenient pickup from your hotel and transportation to the Puerto Base harbor, where you'll board your boat. Then, set sail to explore the waters off the coast of Gran Canaria, going in search of dolphins, pilot whales, minke whales, and more. Watch from the deck or through the glass panels below deck, keeping an eye out for these magnificent creatures and other aquatic life. Then, get ready to experience the ocean firsthand as your boat anchors in one of the small bays along the coastline. Go for a swim, enjoy some snorkeling, or make use of the onboard toboggan slide. If you prefer not to get wet, just sit back and relax, admire the view, and sip on a complimentary soft drink. Spend around 45 minutes enjoying the ocean before your cruise continues with a return journey to the harbor. Your bus will be waiting here to take you back to your accommodation.
