DOLPHINS GRAN CANARIA

Experience the magic of seeing dolphins and whales in their natural environment in Gran Canaria. The shores of Puerto Rico, Gran Canaria boast an amazing 98% success rate to see dolphins and whales in their natural environment.

With their “smiley faces” which we all love, Dolphins are extremely sociable and love to swim and play in the bow of the boats.  We are very lucky to have a permanent colony of short-finned pilot whales lives here in our waters. Pilot whales are social whales and travel as a group or family so it’s common to see lots at the same time. Pilot whales also often play amongst themselves or interact with Dolphin & Whale boats.  We can sometimes also see Sperm Whales in the local waters.  Up to 20 metres long, these whales are one of the world’s biggest creatures.

There are over 80 species of cetaceans, a group made up of whales, dolphins and porpoises of which 27 have been seen in the Canary Islands.  Due to the enormous diversity of species in the waters around Gran Canaria there so many sightings all year round for dolphins & whales!

The word “cetacean” is from the Latin cetus, which means “large sea creature”. It refers to the group of marine mammals that includes all whales, dolphins, and porpoises.

Dolphins are famous among people because they are graceful and beautiful creatures. Their incredible performance while jumping in the ocean and their friendly face have made people like dolphins.

However, probably the most attractive feature that has made dolphins very appealing to humans is their intelligence which has no equal in the animal world.

Dolphins communicate through a language that includes sounds with different purposes, as humans do, as well as samples of behaviors related to pleasure, fun, teaching and social coexistence. That is why some have insisted on considering them “non-human people,” which gives them a little more “special” treatment.
