What you get

GO WILD!

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 are on the sea, but the bigger the boat, the less you feel it, that's why we have the biggest whale and dolphin watching vessel in Gibraltar, to make your cruise the most comfortable experience possible.If you are still concerned, we recommend you seek out a preventative remedy that works for you and eat lightly before embarking.

    Great team, great trip, beautiful dophins.

    We saw plenty of dolphins on our trip and got plenty of photos too. The team on the boat were both knowledgeable and friendly taking the time to listen to my chatterbox, six year old son, with quite an imagination. Would definitely recommend this trip for anyone wanting to see dolphins, and potentially anyone wanting to watch the planes come in for landing!

    Enjoyed the Dolphin Adventure

    Recommend using this website for buying tickets for this experience. The Website is easy to use and provides so much information. It was very easy to book the tickets for this Adventure. We loved the experience. Everyone was very friendly and helpful at Dolphin Adventure. The information while on the boat about the dolphins was interesting. And we all loved seeing the dolphins and spending time watching them

    We had a really great afternoon out on the boat along with a handful of others (plenty of space due to COVID) and more Dolphins than we expected!

    The staff were really knowledgable and shared lots of information about where the Dolphins live/come from and why. They clearly care about what they do, and it was a great experience seeing so many animals in their natural habitat - although they clearly enjoy the attention from the boats.

    So many dolphins! The crew of the yellow boat were expert at finding us good viewing spots and telling us about the various species in the bay.

    The boat was only carrying a few people to make it easy to socially distance, and get amazing views at the front of the boat.

    We saw hundreds of playful dolphins, a lot of which came right up to the boat to see us. The staff were extremely knowledgeable and because only 12 people are allowed on the boat due to COVID, we had the boat to ourselves. It was a wonderful experience which I would highly recommend. The Top of the Rock cable car was also a great experience, we saw lots of apes and their babies and had brilliant views sitting in the restaurant at the top having a snack and a drink. The whole trip was great value.

    Went on this trip during a last bit of sun on a travel corridor included trip to Gibraltar. It ticked all the boxes (well except social distancing when spotting the dolphins), an hour trip out into the bay to see literally 100’s of dolphins. Would definitely go again.

    This trip by far exceeded our expectations. The boat was clean and well kept. The staff were all very friendly. Angie looked after us amazingly well and didn’t tyre of our endless barrage of questions. She patiently explained the area and dolphin activity. We saw about a 100 dolphins
