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

This is a must when you are visiting Gibraltar. The staff are really friendly and happy and know their stuff! We were so lucky and privileged to see so many dolphins out in the bay. The boat is modern and safe too. The views of Gib, Africa and Spain are also wonderful as you are out looking for the dolphins... More

We did a trip in mid-July and saw three species of dolphins and a sun fish. The dolphins were all round the boat (estimated 5-600 in all) and many came to play in the bow waves and stern wake - excellent pictures and video with an ordinary camera. The staff were really friendly and happy to answer questions about the... More

Thank you for reviewing Dolphin Adventure . It is very common fort the dolphins approach our vessels , we never chase them or stress them out in anyway , we simply approach them then allow them to gather around and under the boat and it seems they got very close on your particular sailing. Thank you very much once again. More

The staff are fantastic . 15 mins in and we see over 50 dolphins . Nothing beats seeing them in their natural habitat . A must if you are in Gibraltar

You are absolutely right , there is nothing like watching these beautiful mammals up close in the wild without any stress or pressure being put on them. When we initially locate dolphins in the bay and strait of Gibraltar our approach is measured and methodical , never crowding them and allowing them to approach our vessels in their own time... More

We were on a cruise and docked in Gibraltar for the day. We did the rock, apes , caves and tunnels in the morning and whilst sitting in Café Solo having lunch in Casemate Square we were wondering what to do next. As we left the cafe, we were approached by a member of Dolphin Adventure. She persuaded us to... More

We have been living nearby in Spain since last year and was talking with Christian from Dolphin Adventure in our local bar and we decided to book to go on a trip with our visiting friend from England and two local friends. We had a superb time watching hundreds of dolphins performing in the bay.

We left at 12:30 on a Sunday, it was so choppy out on the straights but the crew (who were absolutely amazing!) assured us it was perfect for dolphins. For a while there was nothing and then suddenly there were 500-700 dolphins. We were quite literally surrounded. The pod included babies and so they were really active, displaying and jumping....
