Passenger Boat Rental in Valle Gran Rey

Rent this Passenger Boat for €40 (3-4 hours/trip in Valle Gran Rey, Canary Islands. OCEANO… …stands for respectful whale watching adhering strictly to the whale watching regulations set by the Canary Island authorities and therefore we ensure that the cetaceans receive the respect they deserve in their natural habitat. We sail on a small former fishing boat which has become a licensed Whale Watching boat and can only carry 10 people (incl. captain and one Oceano member). Oceano works hand in hand with research programmes (M.E.E.R. e.V.) to establish an ocean reserve off La Gomera for the protection of the cetaceans. Our expert team onboard (on EVERY tour) will constantly share their knowledge and experience with our guests!! Furthermore we offer weekly lectures and a permanent exhibition on whales and dolphins in our Oceano office on La Gomera. When we encounter a school of dolphins or whales, first of all we will try to find out what they are doing. Are they looking for food, hunting or feeding, travelling or do they even come closer to our boat? Respectful whale watching means to adapt to the particular situation and adjust our sailing manner to the animals’ behaviour.     It is very important to us not to disturb the animals with our boat but to watch them in their natural habitat. Often, they seek to get closer to us and the boat and even ride in the bow wave. Sometimes though, they make it clear to us that we are not welcome and then we have to sail on, enjoy the ocean itself or we might even meet a different group of cetaceans. Surely we do influence the animals’ behaviour if we are close by with our boat. To keep this influence as subtle as possible we drive our boat according to the Canary legal regulations and to our best knowledge and belief, our intuition and many years of experience. Every one of our boat trips is new and different as we are dealing with wild animals, which are constantly moving through the ocean. So we can never know exactly where they can be found in any particular moment. We have to search for them on every excursion anew – and we are very much in favour of finding them! The sighting rates peak in springtime with nearly to 100%. But the other months are very impressive too. In 2013, we had sighting rates over 90%. We never give sighting guarantees but expect from our nature loving guests that they will appreciate what the ocean is willing to show us on any specific day. Expect the unexpected! Everything is possible: We have even encountered blue whales passing through this area. But please accept that every trip turns out differently and then just enjoy the ocean itself, the seabirds, there might be a sea turtles, jumping tuna, flying fish or simply the sparkling light of the sun dancing on the surface of the ocean. During the warmer months there might be time for a swimming break.  

Captain is optional.
