Crew found dolphins very easily. Great to see them under the boat. The crew were very keen and knowledgeable. A must if you go to Gibraltar.

Great trip out into the bay with the added surprise of spotting a pod of Orca Whales. The crew were very informative & helpful.

Thank you very much for taking the time to give us a review here on Tripadvisor, it is greatly appreciated. Yes the Orca, that was an amazing day, such wonderful creatures.

Booked at short notice for Mother and Grandmother on Mothers day. Had a great time and saw lots of large dolphins. Very impressed with the crew and their local knowledge of where to locate the dolphins - and their knowledge about the dolphins themselves. We have been on dolphin safari's in the past but this was the best - up... More

I have been on this trip about 4 times now, the staff are well informed and helpful the boat is secure and safe, you always see Dolphins (well I have anyway) they are the most fascinating creatures and so peaceful, well worth a trip out to see, it's always a good day when you see a Dolphin.

Young and old alike. The trip was fab. So informative and we saw loads of dolphins. Would highly recommend to all. From the safety... More

Although we were not lucky in our search for dolphins on the day we went on safari, the crew could not have tried any harder than they did to ensure we had a memorable day out. It was invigorating and fun and we still have our 12 mth voucher to have another try if we get the chance!

Thank you very much for your kind review despite the fact that you didn't see any dolphins. We always try to educate that in the spring, especially March and April is the time that there are a few trips without dolphins, but as you quite rightly say you we offer a free ticket to come again. We do hope to... More

Excellent time to see the dolphins play and have fun. In the summer the weather is great, and its a good opportunity to ser the new baby dolphins. Some tines it may take a while but the wait is well worth the money.

Have been on dolphin safaris before but struck lucky with this one - great friendly and helpful staff who made sure we had a good time. Lots and lots of dolphins, so much so we did not know where to look first, they were swimming alongside and under the boat etc - great time had by all.
