unreliable company
Apr 2021 • Couples
we booked already last year a tour and we found out that it was canceled when we arrived at the port. they told us that the boat had a mechanical problem and they have to delay the tour. unfortunately that was our last day so we left and tried it again this time. we prebooked already in march and i wrote a message three days before the tour to confirm the booking. when we called there two days before leaving, because we had some other questions, they told us that the tour was cancelled. again the boat had a problem..how can it be that the same problem occurs twice and how can it be that the company is not able to inform the customer before? when we wouldn't have called the company today, we would be there again to be informed that the tour was cancelled. I'm very disappointed and recommend to everyone not to book a tour with this company...it's very unreliable

Dear Su, what a pleasure reading you comment. It must be a really good feeling kicking a company into the dirt. The government closed our business in march 2020 and when we tried after one year we found out that the engines were not working as they should. So we cancelled the tour and put the ship back in the yard where it remains until today. Isn't it wonderful that the company is ruined and the staff jobless? I wish you all the best.

Fantastic trip
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.

Amazing experience, totally recommend

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)!

SO many dolphins - never going to forget!
Jan 2020
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!

Wow what a trip fantastic ride and we saw dolphins and a whale
Fantastic trip at a high rate of knott's wjich aas exhilarating enough and after an unsuccessful search a call xams in tgat Dolphins had been spotted by one of the other boats, so we sped over to the other boat and sure enough Dophins around us, then came a call over the radio of a Whale so we moved on to see a Whale.

Great experience all the differing vessels work together to try and ensure a chance of seeing Dolphins or Whales as it is in everyones interest the benefit of the dsdt boat meznx you are almost Guaranteed seeing a Dolphin.

€30 EURO WORTH EVERY CENT
