Gibraltar: Dolphin Watching Tour
- See 3 dolphin species in their natural habitat and swimming in the wild
- Go on the tour that a BBC reporter described as "one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had."
- Take the kids on a family adventure
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.
