There are hundreds of dolphins in the area that naturally come close to the boat playing in the waves, often leaping clear of the water in breath taking acrobatic displays. Dolphins are naturally curious and playful, it is often difficult to tell who is watching who! A totally amazing dolphin experience for the whole family that you will remember for ever ...Don't miss it!Our aim is give you the best possible views whilst maintaining a neutral level of intrusion to these beautiful creatures. « less

I went to Gibraltar for my friends birthday treat and decided to go on a dolphin trip. I absolutely loved seeing the dolphins with this excellent crew. They gave us a great deal and we were out there finding and being with the dolphins for a good hour. They let us walk around the boat so we could really see... More

Thoroughly recommend for all ages. Great trip and saw lots of dolphins. Staff very knowledgeable and will answer all questions. Only complaint is that you could stay there all day watching the dolphins and don't want to come back!!!> Need to go again.

Great review, thank you very much. We have passed on your kind comments to the crew who, as you say are always eager to answer any questions and share anecdotes about Gibraltar and the wildlife that can be found in this part of the world. We hope to see you again sometime. Thank you once again. More

We had a most marvelous time on our dolphin adventure on a yellow boat!the staff were excellent, they really explained things to us, we did see lots of dolphins,including a pod of juveniles and babies! The boat had a flat front,which meant we could all move about safely, and the crew did not chase the dolphins,you never felt that we... More

My mother booked us this trip as a treat and what a treat it was. We were booked on a 2 pm trip however, there was a problem and we were emailed to say there was a problem and that our time had been changed to 2.30 pm, which wasn't a problem. My only criticism is that with the noise... More

The dolphin adventure was great! The staff was really friendly and they knew a lot aboat dolphins. We saw tens and tens of dolphins and they came swimming around the boat so we could see them real close. Worth the money! costs £20/ person.

A magical experience and the perfect way to view dolphins in their natural habitat close up. Though may seem a little expensive at first, this trip is great value for money and will leave you with a beaming smile. Gibraltar Bay is perfect for viewing 100's of dolphins, the crew are extremely knowledgeable and the dolphins are not disturbed from... More

The has to be one of the best trips we have ever been on, We travelled on a small purpose built catamaran into the Straits of Gibraltar and without chasing the dolphins the crew managed to locate them almost immediately. The staff were extremely knowledgeable and only too willing to answer any questions. They were obviously very interested and dedicated... More

We had planned to go to Morocco for the day from Gibraltar but because there were long delays at the border we ended up on this trip instead. what a fantastic couple of hours. The trip takes you right into the bay and it is great to see the Rock from a different view. We were lucky enough to see... More

Of all the Dolphin Adventures/Safaris this company seem to be entirely respectful. I've used them before many years ago and they had the same ethos. There is no chasing the dolphins, they go out into the straights and let the dolphins come to them. Meanwhile they're a mine of local, historical, geographical and marine information. The groups aren't huge so... More

A very thorough review , thank you very much .
