Make your way to the Albufeira marina, where you’ll meet the jet boat captain and crew. When you take off from land, the captain will chart a course between Albufeira and Carvoeiro.
Along the way, see what the super-maneuverable jet boat can do, hitting high speeds, sliding across the ocean surface, spinning, and power braking. Slow down to nose into some of the rock formations that line the coast, and keep your eyes out for dolphins—a marine biologist will help spot the Algarve coast natives.
See, too, the famous Benagil Caves and Praia da Marinha, which was voted one of the world's most beautiful beaches.
This 2-hour Algarve boat tour and dolphin tour concludes at the original departure point, the Albufeira marina.
