Gibraltar: Dolphin Watch Cruise & Cable Car Fast Track Combo

1. Gibraltar: Dolphin Watch Cruise & Cable Car Fast Track Combo

Make the most of your time in Gibraltar with a combo dolphin-watching cruise and entry to the Gibraltar Cable Car. Cruise through the Strait of Gibraltar on a catamaran and search for dolphins with a marine biologist guide then climb to the top of the Rock of Gibraltar in a panoramic cable car. On this tour from Gibraltar, begin on a dolphin cruise onboard a yellow catamaran. Expert guides provide live commentary and a marine biologist describes everything that you’ll encounter. Learn about dolphins and we can protect these special creatures. They are sighted on 99 percent of the tours. At times, you can see pods of 40 to 500 dolphins. Watch common, striped, and bottlenose dolphins swim up to the boat and play. They sometimes put on a spectacular display of leaps directly at your feet. Tours depart 4 times each afternoon from Marina Bay, where you can relax and soak up the Mediterranean atmosphere both before and after your trip. Each tour takes in breathtaking views of both the African and European coastline and the legendary Pillars of Hercules. One of Gibraltar's highlights is riding to the top of the Rock by cable car, the best location to spot the famous Barbary apes. A pack of wild apes, the famous Barbary macaques, will give you an entertaining acrobatics performance. Hide all plastic bags to avoid robbery and keep a friendly distance, especially if the young ones are around. Relax with a beverage and light snack while enjoying the spectacular vistas. The Top of the Rock Souvenir Shop is also packed with unique gifts unavailable in town. From the terraces of the top station, gaze over the town below, look north towards the Sierra Nevada over the Costa del Sol and east over the blue Mediterranean Sea, and take in the views south across the Strait of Gibraltar to the Rif Mountains of North Africa. You’ll have views of 2 continents, 3 countries, and the meeting point of 2 great bodies of water.

The tour was super organized. Although we were late due to the heavy traffic at the Gibralter border, we were immediately offered the next appointment 2 hours later. The crew on the boat was super friendly. We saw dozens of dolphins (including juveniles) having fun playing in the waves of the boat. The ship's captain did a very good job and the dolphins weren't chased like you've heard from other places. We recommend.

Great tour. You can take the boat only about 10 minutes out into the bay. We saw dolphins without end. They were everywhere and came up to about 2 m from the boat. Everything was explained in English. Great tour! Tui Cruises uses the same operator for its excursions. Would book the tour again in a heartbeat.

We had a fabulous time the dolphin cruise was amazing and the cable car ride with view from the top of the rock absolutely astounding and real value for money. Also we did not have to queue as long since we paid in advance so it really was worth it all around and we had a fabulous time!!!

Good organization, very friendly and competent company on the boat. We saw a lot of dolphins. The cable car ride up the rocks was rewarded with breathtaking views. The whole action is highly recommended.

It was quite amazing, got to see the dolphins and we had the guide that gave us information and helped the sighting. It was a wonderful experience
