Full disclosure. I wanted to book the smaller Blue boat that restricted the number of passengers more. But the delightful Frank convinced me to take my family on board and perhaps because early May is off season, his promise that that boat would be spacious was fulfilled. I've done the trip before and it is a really nice way to see Gibraltar from an unusual perspective. With the virtual guarantee of seeing the playful dolphins a good time was had by all. I think the cost of this is great value and you can't get closer to the dolphins without being in the water. Fab.

Was a bit dubious how good it would go but all staff we encountered were really friendly, we completely missed our set time for various reasons and as soon as we arrived to ocean village a member of staff somehow found us and was extremely understanding and put us on at 2pm (originally we were on the 12:30pm). They were very informative and we saw so many dolphins! Swimming past and under the boat for a good amount of time (they estimated there was about 60 at that time I think).
So would 100% recommend, as with these things there can be no guarantee we thought the boat ride would be fun either way which it was. But came away very pleased when we got so lucky with the dolphins

Very good dolphin watch. Within a very short time the crew had spotted dolphins and we bobbed around for about an hour watching what was probably over 100 of these graceful creatures. The could be seen in the distance but very close to the boat too, on all sides so everyone got a good view.
Crew friendly and dealt well with a passenger that slipped just before getting onto the boat. We had been warned it may be slippery as was wet, but he went flying anyway.
First aid kit out and he carried on with the trip as his request.
Personally glad operating at low capacity due to covid but I am sure company not. So go now.

We were approached by two sales reps, a lady and a man, both offering trips to see the dolphins. The man was significantly cheaper by £10, but the lady explained that her company are more expensive due to the fact they only carry a few on each trip, but the man persuaded us his trip was better and his boat much bigger, so we booked with him and saved £20. Come the time to board we found we were on the yellow boat, about 12 other people, good. The other company, a blue boat set off on time with about 20 onboard. Haha I thought to myself, saved £20 and less people on this boat. 15 minutes later still sitting waiting in the hot breathless marina and then ... hoards of other passengers, and I mean hoards, in a big big group started getting on the boat. Over 100 I am sure!!! There were dolphins allegedly but we couldn't see them because of the overcrowding. Unbelievable!! We really wish we'd paid that extra £20, which on reflection isn't much to pay for a first class upgrade, also the blue boat have very professional looking crew, not scruffy, and a red carpet and red VIP rope. Next time blues all the way, I would never book on the cheap yellow boat again, it's cheap for a reason. Visitors beware.

We had great weather the day we went out. Tues 5th October 2021. We were surprised to discover the dophins in the bay - we had assumed we'd be going out to sea (which I was dreading!)!!
We say many pods of dolphins, and the crew were very knowledgeable and talked about them. They followed pods in the boat, and turned the engine off when the dolphins hung around us.
I would definitely do this again, now I know what to expect.
I've not left a 5-star review as for me personally, the 60 people on the boat made it too crowded, and it meant I was confined to one place and unable to move around the boat comfortably to see everything.
But, if you want a more personal experience, I believe this company also offer private charters.
Overall, an amazing experience for me.

Our guide was very knowledgeable about the movements of dolphins and how they can be spotted and details of their lifestyle, etc. We spotted a group of males who approached the boat as well. In the distance we also spotted some juveniles who were more hesitant in approaching us. Overall we enjoyed the excursion and would strongly recommend to anyone who wants a break away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

We went on the 24. December and really had a beautiful day out on the water. The tour operators - the entire staff was really kind - they were working on Christmas, and were so nice and professional. The receptionist was great, and very helpful, and the boat operators were friendly guys who made it comfortable to be at sea and also helped us to spot the dolphins and learn about them. We came straight from the cable car ride and were late, there were too many people on the cable car and so the boat even waited five minutes for us and made sure we were onboard. I can recommend - give yourself an hour, a solid hour between the cable car and the boat trip. It's a 20 minute walk (or a 8GBP taxi ride, just call and book a cab) and there will be a big line up to get back DOWN the cable car.

Overall, a good tour, worth the money. Thanks!

Really good excursion out into the bay of Gibraltar. The weather was fantastic, on the way out into the Bay the views of the Rock were fantastic and to see the Rock from the sea is impressive.
The dolphin pods were found quickly and we experienced different dolphin species swimming alongside the boat , jumping out of the water.
The staff were fantastic took time out to speak with you all about the bay and the dolphins.
The timing was perfect and we got to see plenty of dolphins prior to returning to the bay.
Took the last tour of the day, perfect with space on the boat.
Good trip would recommend it to all that visit Gib.

This trip really did surpass my expectations. I expected to see some dolphins and had no idea of the large number we would see - Everyone on the trip was struck with awe

The staff were really friendly and knowledgeable as well as having a good sense of humour.

This was tremendous value and I can't think of a better way of spending £20.

Thanks to everyone involved!

This was an excursion we would like to have done earlier in the week however we didn’t book and when we did the weather was rough so was put off till the next day. So pleased it was as the day we went out it was extremely beautiful.
We went out into the marina searching for dolphins, me and my wife sat at the front to try to get the first glimpse. It took around 30 minutes before we saw any dolphins, there were two or three nearby as there was a dolphin safari following our boat they chased after these dolphins while we searched for more.

Around 10 to 15 minutes after that we found around 15 dolphins all swimming and jumping together, it lasted for around 10 to 15 minutes before we had to head back as you come out for around one hour. The Dolphin Safari was already back as they only seen two or three and seemed to be happy with that where our searching was successful and showed more.

My photo really doesn’t do justice. Go and see for yourself! You will not regret it.

Overall an enjoyable experience and with the added bonus of your ticket giving you 10% off a lot of the restaurants along side Dolphin adventure.
