17.12.: Rare sighting in La Gomera – a Blue whale

17.12.2015: Today we were lucky enough to experience a very special sighting during our trip around the island – a Blue whale. Not far away from the nature monument Los Organos in the north we encountered the Blue whale.

This sighting of the biggest creature in the world is indeed something very special. Blue whales were sighted only 3 times in the last 20 years off the coasts of the Canary Islands, the last time was 2014 between the islands of Lanzarote and Fuerteventura.

We are very happy that we and our guest of Excursiones Tina were lucky enough to witness a Blue whale off the coast of La Gomera.
