Dolphin and Whale trips, lasts 2 and half hours, guarantees you will see dolphins or you get another trip free.
If you have never seen dolphins before this can be a wonderful experience taking in the views of the south of Gran Canaria there are dolphins in the waters of Gran Canaria all year round.
Bottle nose dolphins or small groups of Rough-Toothed dolphins, Striped and Common dolphins. Sometimes the boat is surrounded by Atlantic Spotted dolphins. You may also spot Pilot whales and the rare Beaked whales. At certain times of the year, large whales such as Finback, Sei and Sperm whales pass through the area. Loggerhead turtles are also commonly found.
The day we went we saw The Common Dolphins,we did see a water Spout from a whale but not the actual whale.
To top it off we saw lots of Flying Fish,if you have never seen them,I found them really fascinating,almost like clockwork toys.

It lies in the middle of an extremely fertile plain where the largest and most important banana- growing area is found. It is a clean village with beautiful gardens, such as the Municipal Park, a collection of exotic flowers and plants. It has an interesting parish church in pure Gothic. Close to the village lies the volcanic cone called La Montaña de Arucas, from the top of which there is a wide, panoramic view, including El Puerto de la Luz and the mountains of La Isleta. The beautiful Bañaderos coast lies at a distance of six kilometres. The whole coast of this township is full of beautiful scenery with cliffs, lovely coves and a breath-taking panorama.

Situated in the Barranco de Fataga (Fataga Ravine) at about 450 metres above sea-level, the village of Fataga is a palm oasis in the midst of the stunningly beautiful Fataga Protected Landscape national park. Originally part of the Ayagaures y Pilancones Nature Reserve formed in 1987, the status of Protected Landscape was conferred in 1994 not only for the area's natural beauty, but also as it forms a nature reserve for birds and a number of species of endangered local plants.

The small village of Tejeda and the nearby Cruz de Tejeda (Cross of Tejeda), a sombre carved stone cross on a mountain pass at 1580 m (5184 ft) above sea level, which marks the notional centre of the island of Gran Canaria.
At this popular sightseeing attraction you will find bustling restaurants and bars, shops selling souvenirs and other local specialities and a man offering donkey rides to children. From the Parador Nacional, a state run inn at the fringe of the crater, and some other viewpoints in the nearby surroundings you will enjoy magnificent views over the island’s mountains and valleys. If you prefer it more peaceful, then you should not come here at weekends, as this is also a favourite excursion place for the locals.

The Lighthouse of Maspalomas is the tallest lighthouse in the Canary islands. Its 65 meters are towering above the dunes, and make a good orientation point while walking through the sandy dunes.
Next to the lighthouse you will find some reataurants and bars for refreshments after the 7 km hike from Playa del Ingles.

Along the GC60 between San Bartolomé and Maspalomas is an area they call the small Grand Canyon. Altough this sounds like a contradiction it is a nice area to have a look. It really makes one think of the Grand Canyon in the USA. A viewpoint along the GC60 provides a great picture point. But to see the area itself you have got to get of the road. Walk or cycle the area.

West of Puerto Rico is the beautiful Puerto de Mogan, also called the Venice of Gran Canaria, because of its canals. A quiet and small place with two story buildings, and cafes and restaurants along the harbour.
It can be a bit expencive here, but if you just go a little bit away from the sea you will find small and very nice local restaurants. The atmosphere is much friendlier and the prices too. The thing to eat here is definetly fish, because of the many fishingboats that are here.
This is a place you should visit at least once!

This park is a subtropical oasis, about 10 km from Maspalomas. You drive through dry and barren landscape and when you come to the park it's like beeing in a totally different place.
You can find botanical gardens with over 1000 palmtrees and more than 15.000 plants. There are also more than 150 different birdspecies, plus aquariums and other animals like crocodilles, reptiles, monkeys etc.
Everyday there are different shows in the park. In one you can see birds like eagles and falcons performing stunts in free flight. One of the most popular shows is the parrotshow, where the parrots perform plenty of different tricks and shows.
The children love this place and you can easily spend a whole day here. Or you can combine it with something else, like a trip to one of the waterparks. Just remember to leave before they close, so you don't get locked inside, have to sneak out and set off the whole alarmsystem... ;)
