The ride to Tarifa was a bit longer than expected but a comfortable bus made us forget about that. We were the only ones on the bus for the Whale Watching tour, the rest on the bus went to Morocco with the guide. The guide already booked our tickets for our tour, so once off the bus we went to the meeting point to get our ticket and had about an hour left before the start of the tour. After exploring the coastline it was time to depart. The whale watching experience was amazing, we saw about 6 or 7 whales and 2 groups of dolphins. The second group even played with the boat, they loved entertaining us. Once back, we had about 4 hours left to do whatever we want untill the others came back, so we went for an afternoon to the beach, sunbathing, swimming, walking,... It really was an amazing experience and a nice day off!

Family of 5. Great tour guide, nice bus with aircondition, exiting boat ride to see the dolphins, the kids loved it. There was also time for the cable car (bought those tickets «externally») really recommend this trip!
