The dolphin tour starts early in the morning around 06:00 and it starts enjoying the sunrise and watching how the sky illuminates with brilliant colors on Mallorca’s horizon as the day dawns.

What travelers say about the dolphin watching tour:
Fantastic day. Saw dolphins play right next to our boat. Will never forget this day. Wonderful memories and experience. Definitely recommend
Very good service! We could change the place where we were picked up. The tour was very nice with waves, sun, dolphins and a little breakfast. Awesome!
The boat journey was picturesque and the dolphins were amazing. Was worth getting up at 4.30 am for the experience. Took my 2.5 year old and although she was a bit sleepy she loved it

Is it possible to swim with dolphins in Alcudia?
Swimming with dolphins is a dream had by lots. Sharing waters with these precious mammals has been proven to be an activity that gives great satisfaction. It has even been said that swimming alongside dolphins can beat depression.
While in resort many ask the question about whether it is possible to swim with dolphins in Alcudia. Before we answer the question stated bear in mind that it is said that the best months to find dolphins in Mallorca’s north coast is between the months of June and October, which coincides with the touristic high season, because the water temperature is at its most ideal temperature for these mammals.
Even though our waters are a great habitat for these mammals during the months of summer, when asked about the possibility of actually swimming with dolphins in Alcudia, due to the difficulty that finding them could have for those who are not experts, the answer tends to be no.
