What can I say.. This was one of my bucket list to do's.. Go see dolphins in their natural habitat.
We decided to use dolphin adventure, as their rival company albeit boasts about their trips and the smaller more intimate groups they provide, their boat was tiny and didn't fill us with confidence unfortunately,.. So as I get extremely sea sick, can have anxiety attacks, I decided this trip was better for my needs with a bigger boat.
We had checked the wind speeds for Gibraltar so made sure it was a calm day for us sailing, and with the aids of sickness tablets and sickness wrist bands I braved the lifetime adventure dream.
We really cannot fault or praise this company enough, they 99% guarantee you will see dolphins and if you don't you go again for free.
The boat was fantastic, clean and spacious, there were about 30 plus people on board but everyone got a seat and we all had a view of the dolphins and all got our photographs.
You had great commentary from the crew and information on the species and I was that overwhelmed with emotion that I cried when seeing them for real, and swimming freely, happy, and they had delight in showing off for us, jumping and twirling. It really was a joy to witness!
I desperately wanted to go again during our honeymoon stay in Gibraltar, but we didn't have time, but we will definitely be going back to Gibraltar and going again on the trips with dolphin adventure.
A huge thank you to the crew for all their fantastic work ensuring us the passengers have a brilliant time, and it really was a lifetime experience for me and I'm externally grateful to you all.
