We payed for oure trip and at that day, 20 min prior oure trip lady caled us and canceled couse the weather. Need I say the weather was perfect but Thay just didn't sell enough tickets for that day. And Thay lie about it. I really don't have any nice words for Them. So rude.

The best experience for you and the dolphins
Jul 2021
We were lucky because after twenty minutes we saw the dolphins. It's difficult to shoot pictures because they appear suddenly on the surface. By choosing for this company you help protect the dolphins.
If that's not enough they have the coolest boat!

Disappointing tour
Aug 2021 • Couples
We enjoyed the little museum, they gave information about the dolphins and they told us that we could see sea turtles too, but the watching tour was disappointing. 15 mins driving on the boat we followed a fishing boat, we spotted one dolphin, so they stopped the boat and we stayed 30 mins watching that one dolphin who only came up 5 times. They didn’t try to find more at another place.

Interesting couple of hours
May 2019
Me and my 4 year old daughter spent a couple of hours there during a rainy morning in Losinj. The employees were very enhtusiastic about presenting their work and the work of the Institute to us (I was acquainted with their work to some extent) and explaining it in a language understandable to a child. They showed her the exhibits, we saw the educational movie (they took special care adjusting the volume not to be too loud to a child), later on we played with toys and books dedicated to sea life in a section of the main area dedicated to children and draw a painting of our visit to the Institute. They also have some educational computer games on recognising dolphins' finns that can be played by visitors, etc. I would recomend all Losinj visitors to drop by to the Blue World Institute, they would certainly feel welcome there.

Fantastic dolphin watching tour
Jul 2018 • Solo
If you want to learn more about dolphins and turtles, this is the place! So many useful info, educational and a special highlight on conservation of dolphins. The team is experienced and they try hard to continue the research and protection of these beautiful animals. I did the dolphin watching in the morning, just after 45 min of searching we found a big pod of around 25 dolphins, and babies were also present! Amazing experience, stayed around dolphins for about 30 min. It was so nice just to observe them in the nature, few of them came close to the boat. Highly recommend it!

Great experience
Aug 2017 • Family
We went on the dolphin watch tour organized by the Blue world Institute and that was an amazing experience. There is first a visit of the museum with an interesting and informative video. There is also a quizz for children and adultes. I really learnt something about dolphins in the Adria. The watching tour was Great, because we found quickly dolphins and could stay with them a long time. Since you have a pro with you, you get directly information about their behavior. The skipper is also very experienced in finding and following them. We also adopted a dolphin after the tour. We are a family with a 10 years boy and a 15 years boy and it was a great experience also for them.

Great day - and edicational for all ages
Jun 2017 • Family
We went on a dolphin exploration with the team after an educational video. My kids (8 and 10) loved it and learned to respect the animals. The team have a huge passion for dolphin which is so much nicer than the usual tourist boat trip ethos.

Highly recommended

of course we saw lots of dolphin :)

Small museum and Blue World
Jun 2017 • Couples
You will find a modest house and Dolphin Centre in the middle of village Veli Lošinj. You can see immediately that this is place, run by enthusiasts. When you just visit the small place, without going to the see, it is average presentation of interesting sea creatures, their life, dimensions. Photos, models, short film presentation. This museum deserves more room for exhibition and for visitors. You will pay small entrance fee.
