We joined the Dolphin Safari trip on a day trip to Gibralter, unfortunately after an hour of sailing round the bay and not finding any dolphins the boat made its way back to shore, it was quite a windy day which I think hampered the trip, but nothing you can do about the weather! We did enjoy the trip on... More

We were made to feel very welcome on the little blue boat . After sailing we found the Dolphins really quickly , the crew gave us lots of information about them. As a bonus we did a quick tour of the harbour . Excellent value for money and we will definitely return

All four of us lived the trip following the dolphins around the bay, watching them leap out of the water. We'd love to do a return trip!

Really enjoyed seeing dolphins up close, crew were welcoming and very friendly. Unfortunately I have no photos, but I can say we got closer to the dolphins than any other competing safari, and friends on the trip at other times experienced the same. Thumbs up from me!

Brilliant crew, with multilingual live narration and information about the dolphins. These guys are the absolute go-to if you are in Gib and wanting some fun. You might also get lucky and see a plane landing right besides the boat. pro tip: go to toilet before trip, the boat has a toilet though.

Great experience! The staff were good and turned the boat to all angles to allow everyone to see as much as possible. To see dolphins is amazing but in the wild up close is just spectacular. Boat had facilities which I didn't use so can't comment on. My son loved being able to buy his dolphin souvineer soft toy as... More

Brilliant trip, if would appear that this is the smaller of the two companies but seems the better of the two. As this company has a smaller customer base you are not packed in like sardines. We saw a good amount of dolphins but even if we didn't it still would of been good fun being out on the water.

Friendly crew. Spectacular views of the rock and the dolphins were amazing. May seem pricey but you will be pleased on your return and glad you made the trip

This is the smaller of the two companies companies that operate here. The advantages of this trip is that they have less people on the boat. So you can get around and see th dolphins. The other company had people jammed in like sardines. The crew are very experienced and are great at finding the Dolphins. I would remind this... More

This must have been our 6th or 7th trip with dolphin safari and yet again weren't disappointed. We had to go further out than we have ever been before, obviously with the dolphins being wild, you have to find them!! The sea was a bit rougher than before, but that added to the experience, even when all our party were... More
