Watching dolphins in their natural environment is an unforgettable experience. And Gran Canaria is the ideal place to tick it off your bucket list, as dolphins can be seen in its warm waters all year round. There are six different types to spot, including bottlenose and common. Whales also make regular appearances around the coastline. Fin whales are the second largest mammal in the world, after blue whales. Pilot whales, meanwhile, are much smaller and have an appearance similar to dolphins. You can also keep a look out for other creatures along the way – like turtles, flying fish and brightly-coloured parrot fish – thanks to the boat’s glass bottom.
