Primary success criteria for a dolphin cruise is of course to see dolphins and we did. Despite being a Saturday (no fishing boats out) Jason the captain found a group of dolphins which we followed for about an hour. It was magnificent to see them jump or play at the stern of the yacht. After we went swimming from the boat out on the sea. Besides that the yacht is very nice and comfortable and powerful enough to keep up with the dolphins. Crew Jason and Alfonso were very pleasant and helpful and the service was great. We had a really good experience.

My experience with Alex, the guide was just exceptional he was very informative and helpful throughout the hike.. I was doing a solo trip and his cordial nature made it all the more fun.. I had interactions with Frans, who was overseeing the Spanish speaking group, but he was also very friendly and made me feel very welcome

Great experience, everything is very well organised and the guides are very prepared. I absolutely recommend.

Very pleasant tour guide. Everything went as on the description. Very nice bus and was not to crowded.

Very friendly stuff. The trip to Gibraltar went smoothly and we were very happy. Highly recommended!
