Hey Fiona & Graham It was one of those rare days when the dolphins were playing hard to get but you tried so hard. Defeated, you went round the customers insisting that we each must have a free ride next time. Amazing! People don’t often...More

So enjoyed our trip out last Monday. Fiona and Graham were very knowledgeable and determined to give us a really great viewing of these magical creatures. They didn't disappoint us in any way. Saw loads of dolphins playing around the boat. Wonderful.

So it seems we took a risk going early in the season as the dolphins are around in fewer numbers. 30 minutes in and it was beginning to look as though we weren't going to see any dolphins. Then out of nowhere we spotted a...More

This was a brilliant trip and an exciting opportunity to see dolphins in their natural habitat. We had the chance to see numerous 'common' dolphins and the larger bottlenose dolphin - apparently to see both together is a rarity. The guides were very pleasant and...More

Google the weather for Gib in Oct and it’ll give you a breakdown of previous years. The trip can’t guarantee you’ll see any dolphins and at this time of year I’m not sure if the dolphins move somewhere warmer

10 min walk from port. All flat as well. Walk towards main town and turn left into the marina just before the roundabout just before town. You will see dolphin signs on the floor once off main road.
