Gibraltar: Dolphin Watching Tour

1. Gibraltar: Dolphin Watching Tour

Naturally playful and inquisitive, dolphins are some of the most delightful creatures in the world, and nothing quite compares to seeing them in the wild. Gibraltar is home to no fewer than 3 species of dolphin. They come to feed off the abundant supply of sardines, mackerel and flying fish that swim in the waters of Gibraltar’s bay. On this excursion you will be in an uncrowded and friendly environment, on board the catamaran “Dolphin Adventurer.” You will get live commentary and the service of expert guides who will explain everything that you see. Each tour takes in breathtaking views of both the African and European coastline, as well as the legendary Pillars of Hercules. But it is the dolphins that are the main event and they are sighted on 99 per cent of the tours. Often you will witness pods of between 40 and 500 dolphins. Watch common, striped and bottlenose dolphins swim to the boat and play. They sometimes put on a spectacular display of leaps and splashes right at your feet. It truly is a magical experience. Tours depart four times each afternoon from Marina Bay, where you can relax and soak up the Mediterranean atmosphere both before and after your trip.

We were booked on a 1230 trip but found out only the night before that our cruise ship was to leave at 1330. We worked out that there was a 1000 trip (part of the cruise itinerary) so we just turned up and the company were very good in letting us change this at 0959 and join the one leaving 1 minute later. The boat went straight to the area where the dolphins were and the staff were constantly talking/giving information about the dolphins - we saw probably a hundred or more in the short time. Really enjoyed the trip and well worth every penny.

Very nice staff and very professional. Even in novembre we had the chance to see a lot of dolphins. Even though the activity lasted less than a 1h30 it was more than enough. Great experience.

The crew were very pleasant and knowledgeable. We saw lots of dolphins and learned about them and the local geography. Thank you for a most enjoyable morning.

Fantastic trip saw lots of dolphins up close. Excellent value for money!

Great crew and we saw a lot of Dolphins. We had a great time!!
