I have my second home in Playa de Santiago and spend between 4 and 5 months a year there and, during this time, I usually go out whale watching with Tina Excursiones twice a week. I must have been on the Tina for well over 200 times and every trip has been a wonderful experience.
We usually see large groups of pilot whales, bottlenose and Atlantic spotted dolphins as well as common dolphins, Bryde's whales, turtles, hammerhead sharks, flyig fish and on occasions we have seen sperm whales and even a blue whale.
From the boat there are spectacular views of the coast and often a couple of osprey can be seen as well as large numbers of cory shearwater.
The excursion lasts 4 hours and includes a stop for swimming at a secluded bay and a freshly prepared lunch of grilled tuna fish and a salad buffet with the typical papas arrugadas and mojos. Just before lunch, sangria is served and there is unlimited water, red and white wine with lunch.
The crew are friendly and very knowledgeable and always try their best to make sure that everyone on board is well looked after. Tina Excursiones offer a couple of different trips and each one is definitely worth doing.
I would advise arriving early to ensure a good seat which, for me, is at the front of the boat but this might not be the best place for people who have not got such good sea legs.
For me, simply the best!!
