We went out on the Goldfin and had a fantastic time. The crew where very knowledgeable and great fun. We recommend the trip to people in out hotel and they all came back saying how much they enjoyed it. Thanks for a great time.

A very good evening trip to see the dolphins in the bay, only a short ride from the marina. My children both declared it as the best day of their lives (so far, being only 11 and 8). The guides were great with everyone on board, knowledgable and considerate. We would do it again for sure when we return to... More

We are so pleased we chose this group to take us out on the waters to watch dolphins. (Look out for the blue boat.) The whole team is knowledgeable about the dolphins (we saw common dolphins today), and other sea life around the strait. There were plenty of flying fish to guide us to the dolphins where captain and the... More

Thank you for taking the time to give us a review on Tripadvisor, I am sorry and confused to hear your comments. I remember you distinctly because you said you have a boat yourself, that you weren't really bothered to see dolphins, the crew remember you because you were apparently the life and sole of the party on the boat....

In Gibraltar for just 2 days while my husband was working there, and wanted to make the most of a limited time. I prebooked online, both the dolphin trip and a rock tour. The dolphin trip was sensational, lots of common and striped dolphins, tuna and flying fish. I was glad I had chosen the original dolphin safari rather than... More

Thank you very much for giving us your feedback and experiences with our company. The crew are delighted, and I know Alex will be relieved as she was mortified to find that your rock tour didn't work out. Glad to hear that you enjoyed the cable car ride instead and thank you from all the team for your kind comments.... More

I had meant to write up a review last summer when we visited and I just found the ticket stub in an old purse. The memories of that dolphin trip are fab. Staff were great. Cute boat and amazing dolphins. Don't leave Gib without taking this trip.

Fantastic trip out to see the dolphins as always. Super friendly staff, generally a wonderful experience and even though the dolphins were playing a bit of hide and seek the guys working on the boat were very attentive and made sure we saw the dolphins whenever they did come up. Great experience, definitely recommend and will most likely visit again!

We were handed a leaflet as we walked in to town from our cruise ship. The sailing was at 11a.m so plenty of time to get back afterwards. Lovely little boat took us into the bay. We saw flying fish, tuna jumping, different dolphins. There were lots and lots. Ben was very informative. Great attraction.

The staff were very pleasant and very knowledgeable. The boat wasn't cramped at all, everyone was able to get to the edge and witness some amazing displays from the two species of dolphins, striped and common. I'm very pleased we chose the original dolphin safari and would recommend them to everyone!
