Take a boat trip aboard the custom-built Supercat and you are almost guaranteed to see the wild dolphins of Gran Canaria.

Gran Canaria's wild dolphins love the calm, clear water off the south coast. So much so that they are there almost every day of the year.

The open and stable Supercat is a great boat to go on to see them swimming and jumping free in the ocean. You’ll also see flying fish and often turtles, pilot whales and even big whales.

The trip includes free pickup from all main tourist resorts in Gran Canaria including Playa del ingles, Maspalomas, Puerto Rico, Amadores, San Agustin, Taurito, and Puerto de Mogán. Sailing time is 2.5 hours and the boat leaves Puerto Base in Puerto Rico. Departure times vary depending on the season but are always up-to date on our booking site:

 If you choose this trip, rather than the full four-hour Supercat day out, you then get dropped off by boat in Puerto de Mogán for your pickup and trip back to your accommodation.

The Supercat: An ideal boat for dolphin and whale watching

Purpose built for Dolphin Tours with an open top deck with plenty of seating, the Supercat is 30 metres long and 12 metres wide. It glides quietly through the water without disturbing sea life and is very stable.

Although the Supercat can take up to 240 passengers, capacity is lower to make sure that everyone has plenty of space to enjoy the experience in comfort.

The Supercat has a bar and jacuzzi on the lower deck and a sunbathing area on the upper deck.

To reserve your spot on this popular Gran Canaria boat trip at an unbeatable price, book it here using our secure online booking service.

Lex Says: Book boat trips in advance to avoid disappointment as most boats are operating way below full capacity and fill up fast!

Tip of the day

  • The Parafarmacia In Gran Canaria Is Not A Chemist!
    The Parafarmacia In Gran Canaria Is Not A Chemist!

    If there is one thing we hate it is visitors being tricked in Gran Canaria. In the past we've warned about overcharging at Gran Canaria chemists, and rip off electronics shops in resorts. 

    In this Tip Of The Day we return to the island's chemists or rather, to the island's fake chemists.

    A chemist in Gran Canaria is called a Farmacia and always has a green cross sign. Farmacias are the only place tobuy medicine in Spain, even basics like paracetamol.

    However, there is another kind of shop in Gran Canaria that looks and sounds like a chemist but doesn't sell medicine. This is the Parafarmacia and it also uses a green cross sign.

    A parafarmacia is a herbal medicine shop that is not allowed to sell any normal medicine such as paracetamol, ibuprofen or antibiotics. 

    Instead, parafarmacias sell herbal alternatives to medicine but don't have to prove that they work and they can charge whatever they want.

    We recently heard from a visitor to Gran Canaria who went into a parafarmacia and was charged 40 euros for a herbal alternative to Ibuprofen. It was only when they read the label that they realised what had happened. 

    To locate a genuine farmacia, see this website and search within your municipio (Puerto Rico is in Mogán, Playa del Inglés is in San Bartolomé de Tirajana). At weekends and on fiesta days many farmacias close but there is always one open, known as the farmacia de guardia, in each municipio.
