Strait of Gibraltar

Admired and feared since time immemorial, the Strait acts as a natural barrier between Spain and Morocco, between the continents of Europe and Africa, between the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, and finally, between the Western and Eastern cultures. It is the only place in the world with such a wealth of contrasts in such a short distance...
Thanks to its underwater mountain ranges, strong currents and many other environmental factors it is one of the areas with the richest biodiversity on Earth.

Up to seven species of cetaceans, marine and migratory birds, as well as endless events and spectacular images can be observed in the Strait of Gibraltar, declared an Intercontinental Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 2006.


Pilot whales and three different dolphin species: bottlenose, common and striped, are resident species and therefore visible all year round.

Other species are present in feeding periods:

- Killer whales: they can be seen from April to September, hunting and feeding on bluefin tunas.
- Sperm whales: they can be spotted mainly from March to July, hunting giant squid in the deep waters of the Strait.

Finally, we can also see fin whales, the second largest animal on the planet. This species uses the Strait on its reproductive migration towards the Mediterranean. The best time to see it is between May and July.

Whales are approached with the utmost respect and complying with the regulations set forth in the Royal Decree 1727/2007 of 21 December, which establishes Protection Measures for Cetaceans.

Migratory birds

After Panama, the Strait is the world's most important bird migration point. During our trips, and at different times of the year, we can observe:

Marine birds: Atlantic gannet, Cory's shearwater, albatross, cormorant, common tern, Wilson's storm-petrel, many species of seagulls, etc.

Migratory birds that cross the Strait from one continent to the other: flamingo, black ibis, griffon vulture and all kinds of birds of prey, storks, etc.

Traditional fishing Bluefin
