A must see safari while in Gibraltar. The bay as well as the strait is teeming with Dolphins and one can enjoy seeing them at very close quarters. It is a delightful one hour ride. Don't forget to take a movie camera as these Dolphins can delight one with their antics when one least expects it.

We went out with our extended family, 4 adults & 3 kids. The round trip was about an hour, but we did wait for another family before setting off. The boat is smaller and the team more friendly than the competition so we like to support the smaller option. Saw lots of dolphins and just the right amount of information... More

This is the second time we have used this company for this trip, as we all love Gibraltar its not the same without the trip out to see the Dolphins in the bay. And we were not disappointed they were out in abundance, we have never been disappointed yet.

This was the first time my daughter's friend had visited Gibralter. we wanted her to experience the marvellous dolphins safari that we had done ourselves previously. Sadly this did not happen. Due to time restraints we had to go on this trip, rather than the yellow boat trip,... More

Dear 100jules_62 I have checked our bookings for 8th August and our ships log and also for the whole of August just in case you got your date wrong and we have no record of any such sailing length of 45 minutes, or of a payment of 75 euros for 1 adult and 2 children and we do not charge... More

Today we went on Dolphin Safari, the blue boat which only takes a small group so you feel up close and personal with the dolphins leaping alongside almost within reach! We saw striped dolphins and common dolphins with loads of babies just to add to the wonder. So great to see these beautiful, graceful animals in their own environment. We... More

This was fantastic, learnt so much about dolphins from our amazing guide. We was out for roughly an hour and you could clearly see them. I realise that not everybody gets to see them and it was a truly amazing experience.

Simply the best attraction in Gibraltar. All staff were superb, friendly and knowledgable. Lots of dolphins on our trip. Worth every penny - we booked online and received a decent discount. Would recommend.

Myself and my parents visited Gibralter in August this year 2015 and we booked up for The Original Dolphin Safari. An Excellent trip where we saw atleast 3 pods of Dolphins in the hour trip. We would definately recommend this company for it's Friendly staff and All round service. We'd definitely book again!!!
