Excellent early evening activity that exceeded expectations. Very fun and beautiful views. So saw many dolphins right up close to the boat! Lovely staff as well. Thank you! :)

I had an amazing time and my son loved it. We saw what we paid to see but the encounter with the dolphins is something else. The staff stood out greatly aswell. They are genuinely happy and love the job it really comes across. Aswell as being funny all of us were in laughter with the captains sense of humour... More

Ab fab can't fault the guys who run this. They are so customer orientated, booked both the dolphin and the rock tour through them, both incredible. Dolphins are hard to find at the best of times and they pulled out all the stops. We saw a pod of some twenty with babies, truly wonderful. Would book again with no hesitation.

Just done a trip to Gibraltar on The Anthem of the Seas and took a trip on the Blue Boat to view the Dolphins, and it was better than expected. We saw a lot of Dolphins thanks to the crew of the boat. Would definately recommend this trip.

We have had friends and family over on several occasions and we would always choose Dolphin Safari. It is not that they have the best equipment but what they lack in pzazz they make up for in their dedication and love for the cetaceans and indeed all the marine life.

We booked this ages ago and where looking forward to it whilst being on the side of caution. The staff where amazingly friendly and clearly loved their jobs, which showed through. Whilst we where looking for dolphins the captain was very good at keeping us informed and we found the dolphins, we found some common dolphins on weds. They approached... More

Wanted to see dolphins and was approached in Casement Square by a street rep. Our party of twelve sailed at 12:30 and we were out at sea for over two hours without seeing anything but an empty crisp packet. Returned to shore and had a late lunch, after which the boat was leaving for another trip and the crew invited... More

A very friendly and informative crew. Couldn't find the Dolphins for a while but the skipper did not give up. Well worth the wait. Dolphins and their babies, fantastic sight. A very good value for money trip. The boat trip in its self was an experience. Calm waters and a blue sky, just heaven. Thank you to all for a... More
