Fom May to October you have the opportunity to participate in this marvellous excursion to see dolphins in the sea, together with the stunning sunrise in the Bay of Alcudia. We begin our excursion enjoying the sunrise from our boat and watching as the sky illuminates with brilliant colours on Mallorca’s horizon as the day dawns.
Our dolphin-watching route takes us towards the Cape of Formentor where we will search the sea for dolphins in the wild. Once we find the dolphins we will stay a while to watch these majestic creatures swimming and jumping in the high seas in total liberty. You can take photos or videos to remember this wonderful experience all your life.
On the return trip you can enjoy breakfast aboard the boat with pastries, toast, ham, cheese, butter, marmalade, coffee, tea and juice.
The price of the dolphin watching in Alcudia includes the 3-3.5 hour boat trip, breakfast snack and insurance. Return pick up is also included from the resorts of Puerto Pollensa and Can Picafort.
The tour lasts approximately 3-3.5 hours and the boat departs from the Port of Alcudia at around 06:00. (Please note, the departure time may be slightly different depending on the time of the sunrise).
The departure point for the excursion is in Puerto de Alcudia and we offer transport from the hotel for clients staying in the north of the island (Can Picafort, Playa de Muro, Puerto Pollensa). If you are staying at a different resort you must make your own way to the Port of Alcudia and we recommend that you hire a car. That way you can make the most of your day and visit the beautiful old town of Alcudia or the area of Formentor.
Once you have made your reservation we will send you an email with the details of the reservation and then later another email with the exact departure time and the closest pier to your hotel.
Please be aware that swimming with dolphins in Mallorca, and indeed in Spain, is not permitted by law. The European Union is making moves to ban keeping dolphins in captivity and human interaction with them.
On this boat tour in Alcudia, we maintain the recommended distance from the dolphins so as not to disturb them in their natural habitat. It is therefore strictly forbidden for clients to get in the water and swim with the dolphins on this excursion.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the sunrise dolphin watching trip. It was an early start, but the sunrise was something I have never seen before! Amazing. The dolphins came quite close to the boat - a pod with a large bull, and a couple of calves! Some Shearwaters made my husband's day too. I would recommend this trip if dolphins is what you want to see! I got some lovely photos too!
The early start was well worth the effort of getting out of bed!! I went on this trip alone as my parents, sister and children didn't want to go so early. The sunrise on the horizon on the sea was sooper and the number of dolphins present quite amazing! good size boat with plenty of seating and plenty of simple breakfast!!
Had a lovely trip the kids loved it and so did the adults!! Will be going again definitely would recommend as the best dolphin boat trip in Mallorca!
Fantastic trip out. We were also lucky to see a baby dolphin. Well worth the money.
So we pre-paid in the weeks before flying to Majorca and printed our tickets as advised. On waiting at the beach (Las Gaviotas) in an orderly manner we were suddenly joined by what seemed like hundreds of Germans - who typically barged their way to the front of the queue! On boarding the boat nobody asked to see any proof of payment - from anyone. The crew talked their way through an overview in Spanish, English and German and advised passengers of the itinerary. Before we knew it an announcement came over the PA that a family of dolphins was in front of the boat. With that our friends the Germans again barged their way to the sides of the boat - elbows everywhere as they fought for prime video-taking stances. My wife took our 3 year old daughter for a view of the dolphins and she was pushed and pulled by so many different people that in the end they gave up and returned to our seats in the centre of the upstairs deck. We then stopped in a bay for the snack breakfast and headed back. Having forked out €136 for the three of us I do feel that the whole thing could have been better managed by more intervention by those in the crew. In effect the trip is a free-for-all so it didn't match our expectations. Our daughter did not enjoy the experience as we hoped she would and so on reflection the fee paid seems too high.
