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

Loved it they are such caring people, we went on blue boat last year but this year was 100 times better will use them every time i go to Gib very friendly and you could see they clearly care a lot about the dolphins. If you cannot make your mind up please try them first you will not regret it... More

My wife and I are experienced whale and dolphin watchers and ex-researchers and the trips we had with Dolphin Adventure, Gibraltar were first class. The crew are very friendly and knowledgeable and the dolphins are fantastic and we were never disappointed on any of the trips we went on and when we go back to Gibraltar we will head straight...

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....

Great review thank you . July and August is the time of year when ordinary dolphin pods come together to form super pods and it seems that you were fortunate enough to have witnessed this spectacle . Thank you also for mentioning the crew , they are as you say dedicated in what they do , always willing to share... More

We went into the straits with dolphin adventure on a very choppy afternoon - so choppy that they advised us they would give us free tickets for another day if we didn't find dolphins. But we found them! It was so exhilarating and the crew were both attentive of our needs and knowledgeable about the dolphins. We had the most... More

Very impressed we did the blue boat last year and this was much better. They demonstrated much more knowledge of the dolphins and showed more caring attitude for its habitat. I was amazed to see the blue boat drive straight towards a mother and baby dolphin. That should not be allowed

Thank you very much for your positive comments. The dolphin adventure crews are indeed highly knowledgeable about dolphins and other marine life, their enthusiasm is almost infectious . Once the crew have located the dolphins our approach is slow and methodical we never crowd stress or harass the dolphins we simply allow them to make their own way towards the... More

We had a wonderful trip on Saturday 5/6/14. 3.30pm boat. I have never encountered so many Dolphins, in one place, I just didn't know where to point my camera! They were incredibly playful and inquisitive, and i managed to capture some fantastic video and photos! (with the inclusion of an impromptu photo with Tony and His wife (jolly boys) which... More

An amazing experience, saw lots of dolphins and got to see baby dolphins close up. The staff are really friendly and experienced with loads of knowledge about different species of dolphins. Really enjoyed the trip and would love to go again and recommend this company to other people visiting gibraltar.

Thanks a lot to all the Dolphin Adventure crew. We learned a lot about dolphins, saw several pods - a fantastic experience - and everyone put a lot of effort into ensuring we all had a good time. The crew were especially caring for an 86-year-old lady in our party who had difficulty walking. For her, seeing the dolphins on... More
