The only dolphin company in Gibraltar to be awarded the Certificate of Excellence 3 years running, with the full 5 star bubble rating which puts us in the 10% of businesses listed with Trip Advisor WORLDWIDE. As seen on Channel 5's GIBRALTAR BRITAIN IN THE SUN! Several trips daily into the Bay and Strait of Gibraltar to see dolphins wild and free. 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.

Brilliant experience seeing the dolphins so close to our boat with plenty of opportunities to take photos or film the occasion. To see the babies with their mothers was wonderful and a reminder of the qualities of nature. There was a limit of 30 minutes or so for being close to the dolphins but this did not lessen the enjoyment.... More

Thank you so much for the lovely review. It is always a treat to see wild dolphins but if we behave responsibly and follow guidelines the mothers will often bring the calves over to the boat of their own accord and this really is something special. Moving very slowly or sitting stationary always produces the best experience and ensures that... More

What a great day, time of boat trip changed but organisers had texted, left messages and emailed so not their fault I missed all 3, as it happened 12.30 instead of 1400 perfect as getting thru' customs quicker then we thought. Had time for a drink and bit to eat right near the mooring. Hour plus trip out, saw loads... More

Great crew - marine biologists in the main who we're engaging and very well informed. My expectations were exceeded by the number and close sightings we had but the crew were careful to let them come to us rather than chasing them. A great trip and I would recommend it very much.

Brilliant experience, with a great crew who obviously love their jobs! Their knowledge of the Dolphins and commitment to not disturbing or 'chasing' them shows that they are a responsible operator and do care for the Dolphins wellbeing. Would highly recommend this to anyone who is lucky enough to visit Gibraltar.

Brilliant trip out, we saw plenty of dolphins and they even extended the trip out a little to catch a glimpse of 4 or 5 Fin Whales that they spotted. Absolutely made our trip and having a marine biologist on board made all the difference, so interesting and so much knowledge. Highly recommend this trip if you are in Gibraltar.

Thank you very much for the 'amazing' review of Dolphin Adventure. Rossi our marine biologist and all the crew do work very hard to share their knowledge. Seeing the fin whales is a real treat and if we know they are in the area we will always try to reach them if time permits. Hopefully we may see you again... More

An amazing experience. The staff on board the boat were extremely pleasant and it was obvious how much the animals meant to each of them. The boat was very comfortable and had very good viewing areas. Would definitely recommend

The comfortable well laid out boat takes you from the wharf to the Bay of Gibraltar. The crew explain about safety and, in detail, about dolphin biology. Whilst watching the dolphins they comment appropriately and demonstrate their knowledge and commitment to protecting the species. We saw about 70 dolphins, including very young animals. It was enchanting.

Trip was great, saw the Dolphins and as a great bonus, when we were about to go back, one of the crew spotted some whales which we followed for a while and came as close as we could without disturbing them. Even got a free drink after the trip. Thanks guys.

Thank you so much for the 'great' review. As you say to see the dolphins is great but it is really something amazing to see whales. I am not sure which whales you saw but over the last 14 days or so we have seen both sperm and fin whales. The fin whales are migrating through The Strait of Gibraltar... More
