It was great to find that Taxiboat Canaria was doing dolphin watching trips already during our visit to Grand Canaria in mid July. Great value trip, included pick up and drop off from our place of stay. We saw loads of dolphins and some even swam up close to the speedboat. We saw a whale from the distance but it had hidden by the time we reached it. At the end of the trip we were all offered a bottle of water or beer and there was an opportunity to swim off the boat for those who were willing. Just be wary that masks need to be worn on the transport and during the whole trip, this was communicated in advance to us but seem to still come as a surprise to some. Although can be uncomfortable especially for the nauseous, we understood that it was necessary due to the pandemic.

No need to book the tour beforehand, you can just show up at their location in Puerto de Mogan and buy yourself a seat. I did book for me and my boyfriend though. We called at 19.45 the evening before and managed to book ourselves two seats + pick-up at 9am the next day from our hotel (this is included in the price).
The driver showed up on time and we are super excited. The trip started at 10am but we managed to get there 30 minutes early so we walked around and checked out the lighthouse. The reception/ticket lady was super nice. She answered all of our questions and chatted with us to kill time.

The trip itself was incredibly nice. It is a speedboat so for those who likes speed and not afraid of seasick and getting some splash, this is totally for you. It was amazing to ride the boat itself so even if you don't get to see dolphin yet, it was worth the price (quite cheap compared to other options). We found a lot of dolphins, it felt like they swam along with the boat even! Really really nice!

The on-board crew was amazing! The captain (I am so sorry for not catching his name) was funny and chill, we had a good time in their care. Oh and at the end of the trip, there is free beer and water (nice bonus)!

We had an wonderful time, great experience... we saw 3 different type of dolphins, managed to have them very closed, took pictures, etc. The staff was very friendly, polite and professional. 100% recommendable.

Great experience, we found a huge of Dolphins that came right up to the boat and swam around. Unforgettable experience as there were so many and they were so playful. Sadly didn't see whales.Really glad we chose this over the competitors as the boat was fast so we got to go further away from the shore = more chances to see!
