Oceano Whale watching Tours
We are looking forward to welcoming you in our little OCEANO office and information centre near the harbour of Vueltas, in Valle Gran Rey.
During your stay on La Gomera just come in and visit the exhibition on whales and dolphins, attend our information events, have a look at our little shop or book your Whale Watching excursions with us.
Sometimes, places may be available at very short notice, but generally, we would recommend booking at least 2-3 days in advance.

Once you have got your ticket, the meeting point for the boat excursions is the old harbour of Vueltas – our boats dock at the quay, wherever space is available at that moment. Our tour guide will be on the look-out for you. Please make sure to be at the harbour in time, about 5-10mins before departure.
Don’t forget to bring some drinking water, perhaps a little snack, sun protection (cap, sun glasses, sun cream, etc) and ideally wear layers, which you can take off or put back on as needed. A windbreaker or cagoule is always a good idea. During the summer months, make sure to bring your swimming gear, there might be an opportunity to go for a swim at the end of the trip.
The boats are well-designed for these waters, you are out in the fresh air and you can see the horizon (which makes it a completely different experience from the ferry!)This is why only very few of our guests feel seasick.
In case you are worried about sea sickness, you can buy a remedy from us when booking your tour. Alternatively we have sea sickness chewing-gum on board.
