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

We were so unlucky as travelled out three times and didn't see any dolphins. We must have picked the worst week of the year but that's nature and wildlife for you, they don't appear to order ....it just means that we'll have to go back to Gibraltar one day and we wouldn't hesitate to go back out on the yellow...

These people really care about the dolphins, they don't chase them or feed them. We sailed out on a new catamaran out to sea for about 45 mins and sat and waited , a pod of 50 came over to us and were playing around us. You can not guarantee to see them and if you don't they will give... More

We booked online with the company as we were in Gibraltar on a cruise ship, the team on the boat were excellent and we were made very welcome on the entire trip. We went out on a voyage at 12.30 pm and the dolphins proved to be a little elusive but after about 1 hour we made contact with some... More

We went out with dolphin adventure, but unfortunately we were unlucky and didn't see any dolphins. The crew did their best to spot them, and we spent a long time out in the sea, but it wasn't meant to be. No fear though as Dolphin Adventure guarantee to show you dolphins, so we had a free return ticket which could... More

On 18th march we went dolphin watching with Dolphin Adventure but owing to it being breezy there was a slight swell and choppy water which meant that the dolphins were further out in the straits and to be fair to the crew they did their best to find them but after a certain time had to admit defeat on return...

After being out around an hour looking for them, the crew asked if anyone needed to get back otherwise they would carry on. They offered a free return trip if we didn't see any.... More

Thank you for a wonderful and exhilarating afternoon. Firstly attention to safety, responsible tourism and having an informed, enthusiastic marine biologist who was very knowledgeable is commendable and made us feel we got more than value for money. We saw lots of dolphins swimming by the boat (which is well built and very stable). The trip from boarding to disembarking... More
