Can not recommend this tour at all. After involuntary re-booking holding a confirmed booking and an e-voucher from 3 hours mid-day tour a 2 hours late afternoon tour 5:00pm we did not spott one single Dolphin or Whale.
Definitely not worth the money nor the hassle to drive von Las Palmas to Puerto Rico. Even more disappointing that the airline I am working for is using VIATOR as the tour-provider for our passengers.
We booked this trip before travelling to Gran Canaria, and it was the highlight of our week. The boat was well kept and spotlessly clean, the crew members were informative, helpful and kept us entertained throughout the trip.
Seeing the dolphins and some turtles and flying fish was amazing.
Would highly recommend.
Avoid though if you get seasick - we went about 6 miles off the coast in search of the dolphins so it was a bit bumpy at times. This added to the fun for most passengers, but a few passengers got very seasick.
My 4th trip with this boat and apart from them never having heard of Viator and having no evidence of my booking we were eventually allowed on board. They kept saying no problem, dont worry but after 5 phone calls became 10 and the queue got longer I really wished that I had entrusted my booking elsewhere.
Once on board all was fab. Almost immediately I saw a green turtle as we headed out to see and left along the coastline. We met up with a few Minky whales and then a lone dolphin skimmed alongside which was beautiful. I had chosen the 3 hour tour which included a sea swim but I was the only person who took the plunge!! As ever the sea was far warmer than the hotel pools.
I had raved about this excusrsion to my friend and told her that it was a 'must do' even if it was the only trip of the holiday. Apart from the fiasco at the start all met her expectations - I am currently teaching her to swim at a spritely 70 years old so hopefully next time - if we an afford it, she too will have the pleasure of a deep water dip
Wrong time of year. No possibility of whales, rough sea. I fell over and got VERY sick, By the time some dolphins were found all I saw was the insde of a plastic bag! All my own fault. Too little research beforehand. Crew were excellent and looked after a poorly old 73 man VERY well.No complaints.
We didn't spot any whales but we saw hundreds of dolphins! Don't risk getting sea sick,go to the local pharmacy and get motion sickness pills. They were inexpensive and we were all fine, unlike a lot of other people around us.
La guía del viaje nos dio plantón y no pasó a recogernos
, May 2019
Contraté la excursión incluyendo la opción de recogida y transporte en autobús desde mi hotel hasta el puerto de salida del barco.
En el correo de confirmación se me indicaba que me recogerían en la rotonda del hotel Cordial Valle a las 12:15.
Yo llegué a esa rotonda a las 12:05 y estuve esperando hasta las 12:15.
Al ver que no llegaba el autobús llamé por teléfono a Viator y tras ponerse en contacto con la guía del viaje que iba en el autobús me contestaron que el autobús sí había pasado por la rotonda a la hora indicada y que era yo el que no estaba.
Como sólo habían pasado unos minutos de la hora de recogida, les propuse seguir esperando hasta que el autobús diera la vuelta y me recogieran y la guía del viaje se negó a hacerlo.
No sé los motivos que tuvo la guía del viaje para no querer recogernos y para MENTIRME, pero a día de hoy ni la guía del viaje ni Viator se han disculpado por las molestias que me ocasionaron.
Al menos me consuela que pagué con PayPal y he podido recuperar mi dinero.
