What to Do in Gran Canaria? A Guide

Gran Canaria is one of the main Canary islands – it is the third largest and second most populous island and is part of Spain. During any time of year, Gran Canaria is chock-full of tourists exploring the island, searching for things to see, products to buy, and souvenirs to take home. TMMS-Tenerife has prepared this guide to help you settle down in Gran Canaria – no matter if you’re visiting alone or with a family, for the first time or if you’ve been here for years, Gran Canaria still has a lot of things to offer.

Dolphin and Whale Watching

Dolphin and whale watching is something that Gran Canaria is famous for. Dolphin and whale watching is frequently conducted as a cruise from Puerto Rico de Gran Canaria and the prices start from around $40 per adult. Should you be interested in dolphin or whale watching tours, keep in mind that TMMS-Tenerife is widely known to offer such tours for locals and tourists alike and our prices are really friendly: one of our cruises will take you to the natural habitat of many species of whales and dolphins, so if you’re into that kind of thing, please get in touch with us to discuss your options.
