The boat trip lasts 1 1/2 hours in total. Currently boarding from 12.30 for a 1pm departure. We went early and waited near the boat, this proved a good idea as the top deck quickly filled behind us. You are able to take your own food/drinks on board but they sell drinks and crisps at very reasonable prices. The crew... More

Was a great afternoon follow pod of dolphins across the bay. The team onboard were great at spotting where to look. Ship was nice and open which helped take some great photos of the dolphins when they appeared.

Been on a lot of boat trips but this was by far the best. Chris the captain and his crew were very professional and treated us as first class passenger's. My grandson were invited into the wheel house! This is a "must do" activity when you are on the Costa del sol. Highly Recommended.

Trip lasts around 1 1/2 hours. The boat itself is lovely and the people running it are very friendly and knowledgeable. We were lucky that we saw Dolphins although as ever when out spotting something this may not always be the case. However a lovely boat trip nonetheless and at only 15 Euros for adults and 8 Euros for children... More

This is a great trip, staff are excellent. The boat trip is really enjoyable but to see the Dolphins is very special. We went on a sunny calm day, not so many people on the boat, perfect. The staff looked after you well, they take photo's on board which were only 5 Euro. The trip cost 15 euro. I think... More

First let me say I hate water and so going on a boat was a big deal but the boat trip was fab, the staff are so friendly and helpful and they take 3 pics of you that you can purchase but they don't pressure you too. The trip out to sea was so smooth and the views that you... More
