Many uphold that spontaneity is the key to a good time but sometimes a ringside seat for a natural spectacle needs to be booked in advance to avoid any disappointment.
A two-hour marine life watching voyage aboard the Spirit of the Seas off the shores of Gran Canaria, Canary Islands is one such experience.
The ship”s itinerary is barely the same twice as she leaves three times a day from the south-western port of Puerto Rico at 10:00, 12:30 and 15:00.
Spirit of the Sea has been specifically equipped as a purpose-built aquatic life search vessel and can get much closer to underwater wildlife than most vessels because of her modified ”silent” engines.
Up to 30 people can be accommodated in the two glass-bottomed keels to give guests a rare glimpse of a little-explored domain.
Because of the limited fishing allowance, the area is known for its wide variety of sea life and constant contact with other vessels practically guarantees sightings of several species such as bottle-nose dolphins and pilot and finback whales.
Spirit of the Sea dolphin cruises must not be missed but 48 hour booking notice is advised to ensure a seat.
