The Blue Boat offers the chance to see plenty of dolphins in the bay fairly close up, which a large boat cannot. The number you see varies of course, partly due to the time of year. I have been on this boat trip twice and was really pleased with the experience, definitely has a wow factor and is a highlight... More

Booked this excursion with a group from our cruise ship. The weather wasn't the greatest. We had some rough water but the tour guides thought they could still find dolphins and they delivered on that promise. There were a whole group, probably 30 or more dolphins, all together. They put on a great show doing all kinds of jumps for... More

I have done dolphin watching tours in the past but nothing compares to dolphin safari in Gibraltar. First of all the number of dolphins you can see as well as the fact that they are so use to to the boats that they come super close. Magical experience. Boat staff really nice and helpful. We were in the group of... More

Very impressive excursion, we saw hundreds of dolphins, we enjoyed very much this experience from the romanian sales guy to the morrocan boat guy. Very informed people on the boat. It's a unique felling to watch the dolphins in wilderness

Sales guy from Romania convinced us to go out for a trip - so glad we did. It was by far the best thing we have done in Gibraltar. We saw loads of Gibraltar's wild dolphins which made the children very happy. Mummy not too keen as hates boats, but it was a pleasant smooth trip and not too bumpy... More

Took the trip with two friends and we certainly saw dolphins. Good trip, not a lot to say, as it is motor across the bay and search a little until dolphins spotted and then followed. Very good.

We took the 4pm trip. We sailed with a pod of about 200 common dolphins. Totally breathtaking. The crew were friendly and informative. The Captain gave an excellent commentary. Would definitely recommend

The trip out to see the Dolphins was smooth and we were treated to a commentary about what we would see and the type of Dolphins in the Bay of Gibraltar. After we had traveled about a half mile, The Guide told us to look forward and on the port side we saw quite a number of dolphins. they seemed... More
