Dolphin Trips

When we visited this time, we were approached by a man from one of the companies that offer Dolphin Trips. He said the price was now £20 but also said that it was on special offer that day for £18.
Perhaps it best to check out the other companies before deciding on which you want to take and which is the best buy.
There are a few of these down by Marina Bay.

Koi carp - Gibraltar

Fishing

If you are an angler Gibraltar is purported to be a great place for fishing. Not that I know anything about it.
When we were at Europa point, on both occasions men were fishing there from the rocks.
There are fishing trips as well that can be obtained from different companies.
Some of the fish in these waters are sole, different kinds of bream, bass, morray and conga eels and mackerel.
There are two tackle shops in the town.
Some companies that do fishing trips are:-
Jalex Telephone - No. 350 78468
Lady Rose - 56571000
Straits Fishing - 5727400
The Angling Centre - 350 74537
I think because of the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean meeting up here in the straits of Gibraltar it has so many different species of fish.

The picture is of koi carp in a pond in the Botanical Gardens, as I am not a fisherman myself :-)

Dolphins and killer whales!

There are a few companies that do dolphin tours. One of them advertises that you can even touch the dolphins. They recommend reservations as only 12 are allowed on each trip. It is on a catamaran. There is also a glass bottom in part of the boat so you can see under the water.
Apparently you can see common dolphins, bottle nosed dolphins and striped dolphins, and on rare occasions it has been known to see killer, minky and sperm whales.
Excursions last 1.1/2 hours and the cost is Adults: £25.00, children under 12 years is £12.00.


Equipment:
They advise you wear swim wear as you can dangle your feet over the edge and thats when the dolphins come up to you.

Address:

Marine Bay Complex

Directions:

On crossing over into Gibraltar bear to the right after the petrol station which is on the right. It is opposite Bianca's restaurant.

The Harbour - Gibraltar

The Harbour

Down with the fishes!

If you like diving then there are a few different companies that do this in Gibraltar. It isnt something I would personally like, I like my head above water not under!
There are over 40 sites for diving around Gibraltar, some sunken vessels and some that have been sunk on purpose. Some of the fish you can see are mullet, conga eels, sardines, mackerel octopus and spider crabs to name a few.
There are even night dives.


Equipment:
You can take your own equipment or it is also for sale and for hire. Teaching courses are also available.

Address:

4 Admirals Walk, Marina Bay
