We saw some whales and dolphins, the island is beautiful from the sea. The crew attentive. Maybe I miss something food or maybe because we were many missing space, the boat must be at least forty, there are other options

Had another beautiful tour again today, seeing 5 different species. Captain José Miguel and his team, Angela and Antje, provide everything for a good experience. Their boat is very fast and extremely silent, offering both many options for whale watching on different spots as sustainable marine life-friendly observations. Friendly people with a heart that invites sea creatures to meet you.

Like most trips like this, seeing the animals are not guaranteed. We didn't see any, and so were refunded. But staff were nice.

Had an amazing time with Tina Excursiones recently. Leaving Playa Santiago we soon came across a pod of Bottle Nosed dolphins followed soon after by a large number of Pilot Whales. The best was to come, a pod of 300+ Atlantic Spotted dolphins with mother & young, they swam with us for a long time & lots of them took part in tail splashing as if to show off! A nice lunch followed before our return. 4 hours well spent & I recommend it. Book though to ensure you get on.

Booked a whale watching trip on Tina through P & O Cruises. There is a public bus from the capital San Sabastian but be prepared for a scary ride lasting 1.5 hours over a mountain road to reach the boat. Apart from 17 Brits from the ship it was a mixed nationality group on board Tina. The weather was warm and the sea fairly calm. As we left the harbour there was a fantastic rainbow over the island. The crew, particularly the older lady (sorry didn't get her name) were really helpful. She came round to give information about the island and its flora and fauna and to show us the various species of dolphins and whales that could be seen. Unfortunately the whales weren't playing on this trip, but the Bottle Nose Dolphins put on an excellent show, diving under and around the boat and throwing themselves energetically out of the water. We had a fantastic lunch on the boat including a tasty tuna steak cooked in a local spicy sauce on a simple two ring gas barbecue at the back of the boat. This was accompanied by salad and bread washed down with lashings of (strong) sangria and wine. There was also an opportunity to swim of the boat. There were also a couple of locals on the boat who sang to us and a really good atmosphere was created. Although we did not see any whales the crew of Tina worked hard to make this a memorable day where we learnt a lot about this fascinating island and its history and culture. Can't comment on the cost of the trip because we got it as part of a package organised by the cruise company which included a guided mini bus trip across the island from San Sabastian, but to my mind it was a highlight of our holiday and I would recommend it to anyone staying on or travelling to La Gomera.
