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.

Excellent trip for the family, took my four year old twins and they were thrilled with the boat ride. The highlight was when we saw the dolphins and they were just amazed at seeing these wonderful animals in their natural habitat.

It's always an adventure to go see dolphins in the wild but with Dolphin Adventure it becomes an experience! Very knowledgeable and helpful staff that always finds the dolphins in the waters around Gibraltar. The are dedicated to preserving wildlife and are always keeping a watchful eye on the sea creatures in and around the bay.

Nice sailors, Max was so cute, always with a smile. However, we were so unlucky to miss every single dolphin, but got a free ticket for next time. FYI, bring some warm clothes onboard, it can get incredibly cold in the ocean.

Friendly staff, small but fine boat, really cold and wet...but, seen two or three pods of juvenile Dolphins. Beautiful creatures and peaceful to watch. The staff were knowledgable and helpful. Our group had two mobility scooter users and the kind staff drove the scooters back to their office to stop them getting too wet at the harbour. Very thoughtful...staff to... More

I have been a Whale/dolphin researcher and campaigner for 15 years and went on 3 trips during a weeks holiday in Gibraltar and had some fantastic sightings of Striped and Common dolphin. The crew took great care to adopt the correct protocol when viewing dolphin. We had the same skipper "Shane" on all three trips who was great fun, very... More

I took my family on the whale watching trip which I'd spotted on theDolphin Adventure Facebook page a few days earlier. I wasn't able to book in advance due to our travel schedule however turned up on the off chance and the excellent staff were able to accommodate. The trip itself was amazing, the whales were so close to the... More

By far one of the best whale watching trips we've been on - and we've been on a few including Alsaka! The crew were fantastic and extremely knowledgeable about the wild life surrounding us! The whales were in abundance... the crew turned off the engines and whilst we floated the Pilot whales approached us, swam beside the boat and then... More

Thank you very much for such a positive review. Whale watch sailings are highly weather dependent as we have to sail far out into the strait .It seems everything came together and you experienced a fantastic trip. We have posted some photographs of that particular sailing on our Facebook page , please log on and take a look . Finally... More

My husband and I signed up for a whale watching excursion with The Dolphin Adventure crew which was advertised via their Facebook page. It was an early start for a Sunday but boy was it worth it.

Wow!! What a 'magical' review. Thank you so much for taking the time (probably quite a lot of it) to write such an in depth and positive review. It is great to hear from people who actually live here as they usually know best where to go and what to see. As you say it really is a stunning sight... More
