We have two young kids (4 and 6) and weren't sure they would be entertained with a whole day of 'rock' activities, so we decided to mix it up a little and start with the dolphin safari, then do a half day rock tour. We couldn't be happier with our choice. The boat trip was awesome- we all got sprayed... More

Was a choppy miserable day but that didn't dampen our spirits as my sister and I sat firmly at the front and got soaked ... Poor Ben tried to shield us ... Thanks Ben, We were rewarded with dolphins and if I come back to GIB I'd definitely do this again. Friendly staff .., thank you

Visited 22/4/2015, everyone involved with the trip was helpful and informative, from guiding us to the pier until leaving their office after the trip. (Some shopping was looked after there while we were out on the boat.) We saw a fair number of striped dolphins, some of them came right up to the boat. This is a great way to... More

I have never been in to Dolphins and was completely taken by surprise, it was amazing we saw loads and they came right up to the side of the boat. The crew were also brilliant very welcoming and a great sense of humour. I would defiantly recommend it and will be going again before I fly home.

The crew are excellent! They looked after us really well (group of 12)! We got to see lots of dolphins, many baby ones which were really cute! This tour is longer than the others on offer! A must do whilst in Gibraltar
