GORHAM'S CAVE COMPLEX
Weekly boat trips to view the Gorham’s Cave Complex World Heritage Site from the sea are conducted by Dolphin Adventure. The unique experience includes a recorded commentary by the director of the Gorham’s Cave Complex, Prof. Clive Finlayson explaining the different attributes of the site. Visitors may also encounter some of Gibraltar’s rich marine life such as cetaceans and seabirds. Boats depart from Marina Bay each Sunday morning, weather permitting.
Please note this is privately run by a third party and all bookings and enquiries should be made via Dolphin Adventure directly on +350 200 50650 or firstname.lastname@example.org
TOURS OF GORHAM'S CAVE
Gorham’s and Vanguard Caves are spectacularly sited on the eastern shore of Gibraltar, and visiting them is a very memorable experience. However, they are moderately difficult/difficult to access on foot. No visits are allowed within 48 hours of bad weather, and visits may have to be postponed at short notice if the weather is adverse.
Areas of the sea cave complex that can be visited and numbers of visitors allowed may vary from time to time. The standard tour, for up to 5 people, is to the entrance of Gorham’s Cave, but not inside, in order to protect the fragile archaeological deposits. All visits must be escorted by guides from the Gibraltar National Museum.
Standard Tours down to the sea caves are typically available twice a week between 1st July and 31st October, weather permitting, with prior arrangement. Places will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis, and there is a waiting list.
Exceptionally, groups of fewer than 5 people may be permitted. Usually, individuals or fewer than five people wishing to visit the site will be incorporated into other parties whenever possible.
Standard Tour Fees
There is an entry fee of £25 per person, plus a guide fee of £25 per group.
Individuals pay the entry fee plus a proportion of the guide fee depending on the size of the group. The guide fee may therefore vary between £5 and £25.
Gibraltar Residents will be charged the guide fee only.
