Full description
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.

The tour guides were extremely helpful and cheery, it lasted longer than the scheduled time, and the dolphins were great! We saw an exceptionally large amount of dolphins. All in all, one of our best experiences in Gibraltar! I totally recommend this tour to anyone wanting to have fun and relax.

Leaping dolphins

I managed to take a video of a dolphin leaping continuously which made my whole trip worth it. few dolphins for my trip and time but it is no blame on the company running the boat. They are free animals and they are beautiful like this. I loved it and will do it again. The boat trip in itself was amazing specially when speeding up and you are on front upper area. Will do it again.
