We were lucky to go on a lovely sunny day, so cruising around the bay and out into the Strait of Gibraltar gave us great views of the Rock and across to Morocco. We didn't find... read more

We were lucky to go on a lovely sunny day, so cruising around the bay and out into the Strait of Gibraltar gave us great views of the Rock and across to Morocco. We didn't find any dolphins at first but the friendly guides didn't give up and extended the tour, and we were then rewarded with great up-close veiws... More

the dolphin trip with these guys was as good this time as the last time we went, the water was a bit choppier this time around and there were a few more people on the boat this time, but it was still a fantastic experience the crew even gave us jackets to put on to keep us dry as the... More

I would recommend booking this from home before travelling and although tickets were being sold in the office I wouldn't want to risk missing out on this trip. Our captain took us straight to the area where the dolphin were and we spent nearly an hour enjoying watching them swimming around and under the boat. Other boat trips were in... More

Excellent trip! This is the blue boat one - make sure you go blue & not yellow. The captain of the boat kept going until we found dolphins & they came right up close to the boat. If you sit at the front of the boat expect to be sprayed by the water & of course be wind swept. I... More

I'd read some of the reviews ahead of our five nights on board the neighbouring Sunborn and had planned to book the Yellow boat instead. Some really bad weather two days running deterred me although the trips seemed to go out anyway and with time running out, and my 81 year old mum less than enthusiastic (or able bodied) I'd... More

Literally just stepped off of the boat and having a beer. Wow. First of all, the trip was slightly retimed due to low numbers. I have absolutely no issue with that. It makes perfect sense - it's a business and bills have to be paid. Staff were absolutely excellent and couldn't have been friendlier. A brief safety demonstration took place... More

Thank you for your review, I do remember both you and your husband. I remember that Tim had helped you both to find parking and I had explained from the outset that the boat wouldn't be back until 2.30 even though you had booked originally for a 2pm. When the boat arrived back we did have clients that we were... More
