Great cruise on a beautiful sunny day. Ben the guide was great- very friendly and helpful and knowledgeable. Comfortable boat. Saw loads of dolphins all swimming up close to around the boat. So lovely to see. Spent about 1.5 hrs out on the water.

Had a great time on this trip. Saw a pod of dolphins, so thrilled. The boat was comfortable, with seats for everyone. The crew were really friendly and kept us informed the whole trip. Would recommend ‘The Original Dolphin Safari’ to anybody.

An excellent experience. Plenty of dolphins spotted and they come right up to the boat and the water is so clear that you can see them under the water (see foreground of photo). Small groups (maximum 25 passengers) means that everyone can clearly see the...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.
