Select date and participants:
Cruise the Strait of Gibraltar to see wild dolphins in their natural habitat. Home to 3 species of dolphin, you are almost guaranteed a sighting on this 90-minute trip off the Spanish and African coastline.
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.

“<3 Amazing <3”
Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Kidderminster, United Kingdom on May 23rd, 2013 The boat left a bit late but the trip was amazing!! We saw dolphins galore right from the get go!! :D
“Took a while to find dolphins but still good”
Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Perth, Australia on September 1st, 2012 It took some time before we actually found any dolphins but I guess a tour like this always contains an element of chance. When we did come across some we were lucky to see quite a few --- probably 10 or so but they were very difficult to count. They also swam alongside the boat for pretty much the whole remainder of the tour which was cool. The crew were awesome, even before we saw the dolphins the trip was still fun with them.
“Wonderful day for the whole family”
Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Sheffield, United Kingdom on August 30th, 2012 We had a beautiful day out at sea looking for dolphins as a family. The staff were great, particularly with our kids, who can be a lot to handle! We were lucky enough to see striped dolphins, which I don't think I'd even seen pictures of before, but they were absolutely gorgeous! We're all so grateful for a wonderful day voyage from start to finish.
