Barco azul boats for whale watching in Gran Canaria
If you set out on a dolphin tour from Puerto Rico look for the boats that carry the seal “Barco Azul”, in English “Blue Boat”. This means that the operator has the appropriate license to perform the whales and dolphins search trips and that he adheres strictly to the legal provisions to ensure the protection of these marine mammals in Canary waters.
The set rules imply, among other things, that the boats can only approach the animals at a certain distance and can neither distress nor persecute them.
Approach and interaction can only happen if they are initiated by the animals themselves. It is also strictly forbidden to feed them, nor are you allowed to swim with them.
These rules are in place to ensure that these marine animals can move freely in their own habitat and live in absolute freedom.
During the excursion, the crew will inform you of the different species of cetaceans that are seen and of the features and particularities of each one of them.
