What You Can Expect

Gibraltar Dolphin Cruise with Transport from Malaga

Admire wild dolphins from the deck of your boat!

Hop aboard your air-conditioned coach at your Malaga hotel, and then travel south to Gibraltar, approximately 1.5 hours away. Get off at Marina Bay in Gibraltar, meet your local guide, and then board your sightseeing boat for your 1.5-hour wild dolphin cruise around Gibraltar.

Take an outside seat on deck and start looking out for the pods of dolphins that swim and leap around the waters of Gibraltar. Whole families of dolphins often visit the bay, so your chance of seeing them is great. Even better, your boat is limited to 25 people, allowing clear views of the area and its wildlife.

Listen to commentary as you cruise, learning about the waters of Gibraltar and the dolphins that make the sea their home. The balmy Mediterranean climate and large shoals of sardines, herrings and squid have long attracted dolphins to the area, and it’s now a famous breeding ground for at least three different species: bottlenose, common and striped.

After cruising around the coastline, return to port and step back onto dry land. Then, enjoy roughly two hours at leisure before your transfer back to Costa del Sol. Perhaps use your free time to enjoy lunch at one of Gibraltar’s many alfresco restaurants (own expense), soak up the sun on a Gibraltar beach or sightsee around town.

Return to your coach at the pre-arranged time, and then travel along the coast to Malaga. Your day trip finishes with a drop-off at your Malaga hotel.

4 star rating: Recommended August 2014

One detail is that a short stop, for visuting restrooms etc, should have been included in the approximately 3 h bus-tour from Malaga to Gibraltar. A 20-25 min stop should have been included at a cafeteria to have time for restroom visits an to take a cup of coffe.

Overall, we are very satisfied with the trip, and we got help from the guide to include the Rock tour in our Dolphin Gibraltar tour. I suggest that you should consider including this offer as a ordinary tour.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better July 2014

Dolphins beautiful but I will never buy from Viator again. I stayed in the centre of Malaga and yet I had to pay 35 Euros to get to the pick up points in Malaga. All I was told was that Viator should have taken Malaga from the list of pick ups. It was this trip and the trip to Jerez and Cadiz. Both lovely trips apart from the costs of taxies to the pick up points. VIATOR PLEAS REPLY TO THIS REVIEW
