Thrilling, the tour is arrange directly in the offices located in front of the port of Tarifa. There are different types of tour, some longer than others, we took the 2 hours long tour, which includes navigation to the point of sighting and return. we did not see whales, only several types of dolphins, I think that we were at...

We drove down from Malaga for this trip but is was so worth while - nothing to do with the trip but the parking in Tarifa was an absolute nightmare, be warned if you are driving. We were on a 3 hour trip and saw numerous Pilot whales, a superb diving sperm whale, striped Dolphins and bottle nosed dolphins -... More

We took the excursion for seeing Killers Whales. We saw them and it was amazing ! But on the road we have also seen dolphins but the boat hasn't stop... We were very disappointed... Furthermore, we took the tickets with Whales Watch Tarifa but we were on the Turmares boat and its staff... It is a very touristic attraction. Sadly... More

We saw Pilot Whales, Bottle nosed dolphins and three sperm whales diving down so got the perfect tail shot! You can do a longer tour with a higher chance or Orca spotting, but we just did the short tour which is a little over two hours. This is on the open sea and if you get sea sick take something...

Within twenty minutes of leaving the port, we were right up close to a sperm whale, which we watched for probably about five/ten minutes. A few minutes later a 'bunch' of dolphins swam right in front of the boat and then, best of all, a group of pilot whales headed straight for us. In fact, they got so close that... More

I was walking and looking for things to see in and out of Tarifa port. Walked in the whale watching store and get friendly service and chit chat.

Planned an orc sighting tour today, but didn't see one. Well organised though, friendly staff, big enough boat. We understand that they can't garantee which animals you will spot, but a predicted successrate of 97% is too much. We did see two large groups of dolphins and a whale, which was great. The crew kept on searching for the orcs... More

We had such a fantastic trip. The navigators are so impressive, they took us straight to a big group of pilot whales then moved with them slowly for ages. I didn't expect to get so close - at some points they were only a few metres away, or to get such a good look at them for so long. It... More

This trip does exactly what it says on the tin! You'll see pilot whales and dolphins - we saw loads of them on a very good value (30 EUR) 2 hour boat trip. The staff were friendly and the trip well organised. A great experience.
