    hrs Estimate Duration

Explore the enchanting town of Tarifa at the southern tip of Spain and then cruise the Strait of Gibraltar looking for the many whales and dolphins that frequent these waters.

After departing from the pier, you will settle in for an immensely scenic drive south, passing through small villages and the gorgeous countryside that characterizes the southernmost part of Spain. In time, you will reach Tarifa, a charming town overlooking the Strait of Gibraltar where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Mediterranean Sea.

A former Roman settlement, Tarifa feels wonderfully casual and its narrow, cobbled streets invite exploration. As you stroll through the most historical part of town, you can expect to see St. Matthew Church, white-washed houses adorned with wrought iron and sections of the original castellated city walls.

Continuing on to the waterfront, you will board a boat designed for whale watching and cruise into the Strait of Gibraltar. Across the water in Morocco, you will see the Rif Mountains, which stretch along the Mediterranean so closely that they make much of the land unsuitable for agriculture or development.

Seven different species of whales and dolphins live in these waters, including pilot whales, sperm whales and striped dolphins. Chances are, you will see these magnificent creatures breaching the surface as they feed in the nutrient-rich waters. The experience will be unforgettable and well worth discussing over lunch on your own during free time in Tarifa.
