Dolphins > Foreword Print this page
The Bay and Straits of Gibraltar, with their large population of Whales and Dolphins, are unique in being situated in a major tourist area accessible to most Western Europeans. This small guide has been written for those people who are visiting or live in the Costa del Sol and Gibraltar. It does not set out to be an in depth study of the subject, but is intended to present the answers to those facts and details that the average person is curious about when seeing these lovely creatures in the wild. We hope that the serious student of Cetology will forgive us for dealing with the subject in this manner, but we feel that this area provides a unique opportunity for creating the interest necessary for the preservation of these fascinating animals.
