Expert guides provide live commentary and a marine biologist describes everything that you’ll encounter. Learn about dolphins and we can protect these special creatures. They are sighted on 99 percent of the tours. At times, you can see pods of 40 to 500 dolphins. Watch common, striped, and bottlenose dolphins swim up to the boat and play. They sometimes put on a spectacular display of leaps directly at your feet. Tours depart 4 times each afternoon from Marina Bay, where you can relax and soak up the Mediterranean atmosphere both before and after your trip. Each tour takes in breathtaking views of both the African and European coastline and the legendary Pillars of Hercules. One of Gibraltar's highlights is riding to the top of the Rock by cable car, the best location to spot the famous Barbary apes. A pack of wild apes, the famous Barbary macaques, will give you an entertaining acrobatics performance.

The Top of the Rock Souvenir Shop is also packed with unique gifts unavailable in town. From the terraces of the top station, gaze over the town below, look north towards the Sierra Nevada over the Costa del Sol and east over the blue Mediterranean Sea, and take in the views south across the Strait of Gibraltar to the Rif Mountains of North Africa. You’ll have views of 2 continents, 3 countries, and the meeting point of 2 great bodies of water! You'll be able to appreciate why so many wished to conquer this small isthmus and why it played such an important part in world history.

2. From Seville: Gibraltar Dolphins Watching Day Trip

This day-trip from Seville provides you with an opportunity to spot a variety of beautiful animals. Sailing for about 2 hours in the waters of the straits, look out for numerous species of dolphins in the wild, in a respectful manner. The fascinating experience sails through the Strait of Gibraltar, an area declared an International Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 2006. The area provides an added thrill when friendly inhabitants of its waters, dolphins, approach the boats to exhibit themselves and satisfy the curiosity of tourists. In the Strait of Gibraltar, an area declared a Biosphere Reserve, there are 7 different species of cetaceans that, depending on their migratory routes, the abundance of food, and reproduction periods, live permanently or spend some time in this privileged marine area: the meeting point of the Mediterranean and the Atlantic. After the cruise, spend the rest of the day in the amazing city of Gibraltar.

From Cádiz: Private Day Trip to Gibraltar and Bolonia

3. From Cádiz: Private Day Trip to Gibraltar and Bolonia

Benefit from pick-up in Cádiz, Jerez, Chiclana, El Puerto de Santa María or Rota, and then journey by air-conditioned minivan to the British Overseas Territory of Gibraltar, home to the only wild macaques ("barbary apes") in Europe. Although free to move throughout the city, they're usually found in the limestone rocks of the Peñón de Gibraltar (Rock of Gibraltar), and according to superstition, if the monkeys ever leave the rock then so will the British! An important city during Roman times, Gibraltar has preserved its old town charm, and blends scenic splendor with a modern vibe. While the 426-meter high Rock of Gibraltar looking across the straits to Africa is the main sight, other attractions include the Gibraltar Museum, where the territory's swashbuckling history is brought to life. Take a stroll along Main Street to see the Cathedral of Saint Mary the Crowned and the official residence of the Governor of Gibraltar at The Convent You will also visit the ruins of the Roman city of Baelo Claudia, located about 22 kilometers northwest of Tarifa off the Cádiz to Gibraltar road. Prosperous at the time of Emperor Claudius, the city went into decline hastened by earthquakes, and was completely abandoned by the 6th century. Situated next to Bolonia Beach, considered one of the 5 most beautiful beaches in Spain, the archaeological site preserves the most representative elements of a typical Roman city. The main attraction of Bolonia Beach is its dune. At over 30 meters high and 200 meters wide, it is set in an inlet within the Estrecho Nature Park, where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Mediterranean Sea. From the Bolonia-Faro Camarinal Trail, the views of the broad beach of golden sand, popular with surfers, is truly spectacular. You can also see the lighthouse with its cauldron-like holes in the rocks.

What people are saying about Gibraltar

We truly enjoyed this experience and chose to walk back down the hill from the top of the rock. My fiancé was swimming with dolphins before but for me it was my first experience seeing them in the open water.

The staff were very pleasant and the trip was incredible. I lost count of the number of dolphins we saw, but well in excess of 100.

This was a fantastic tour, of course, Gabriela, our tour guide, made it even better than expected!

It was very nice, we have seen many dolphins and they told us some interesting info

Loved it! Such an amazing experience and it was very well organized.
