Professional and good boats. We saw pilot whales, bottlenose dolphins at play, and a megapod of smaller dolphins. I wish they had an upper viewing deck, but it was a good cruise nonetheless.

We booked a trip to see the killer whales. Or better said, we booked a trip with a chance we would see killer whales. Ungortunately we didn't see those, but we saw dolphins and another type of whale. But that's nature, animals don't keep appointments....More

I searched around to see what boat company had the best reviews. Even though there are trips closer to our hotel we drove over an hour to go on this one. We saw dolphins and pilot whales. Can't say in words how much we enjoyed...More

Very interesting presentation before the tour about the animals, the strait of Gibraltar and the threats posed to marine life. We were very lucky (orcas) but they were very well organised and quick too!

I can see why this company is no.1 for whale/dolphin watching. Really well organised and absolutely delivers. We were out on the water for 2 hours and saw pilot whales and dolphins for most of the time. This form has a conscience - they also...More

We were whale watching with firmm for 5 days - a great experience! Observing the fascinating animals is respectful and it seems the animals know this and welcome the "firmm boat". We have seen all kinds of dolphins, pilot whales and sperm whales, fascinating! Of...More

An early start from Marbella had us bright and early in Tarifa - we charged around the Straits looking for Orcas but sadly found none.... BUT saw a bunch of other whales and dolphins so everybody was happy!

We were lucky that the wind wasn't that strong so we coud go on the boat for our 2 hours tour. We saw dolphins and whales sometimes quite close to our boat. The driver always drove gentle to not disturb the animals. Our kids enjoyed...More

Hi, I wouldn't. It can be quite crowded on the boats and out on the open water, it can get kind of rough. My advise would be to leave the dog on land.

As above, it can be quite choppy in the Strait so with a child and another on the way i would steer clear for the time being.
