Caves and beaches were amazing
Joe_A, Aug 2022
Our tour was cut short as one of the other tourists took unwell so we didn't get to see the dolphins. I enjoyed the rest of the tour as we saw all the caves and beaches which were amazing. I'd recommend this tour for that reason.
Best cave tour
Cheryl_D, Aug 2022
Tour guide was wonderful! Very informative. The size of boat was perfect with 12 people. Loved the scenery and the history of the caves and beaches. The dolphins did a show as well.
Awesome trip

Charlotte_F, Jul 2022
Great trip! Clean boat, friendly staff, views were amazing, they let you get off the boat into the sea as well if you would like to! We also saw dolphins which we were so happy about. All in all enjoyable experience
Great dolphin and caves experience
Michelle_F, Jul 2022
Had a great experience on this trip. Met at Albufeira Marina, all was well organised and we departed on schedule. The guide was great and we were fortunate to see a group of dolphins five minutes into our trip. We spent around 20 minutes viewing the dolphins and time was allowed for everyone to get some photos/videos. Then we made our way up the coast to various caves, stopping at each for some information from our guide who was very informative. The last stop was Benagil cave which is amazing. We then made our way back along the coast and had time to cool off for a quick swim before making our way back to the Marina. Great trip, well organised, thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend!
Dolphins so close
Tanya_C, Jul 2022
Great couple of hours out dolphin watching and seeing the caves from sea. Dolphins were amazing loads of them swimming and jumping near the boat. Bring your swimsuit as there is a stop for a refreshing swim. Well worth the trip.
Dream boat ride
Stephen_H, Jul 2022
Excellent guides, lovely people who share their excellent knowledge of this beautiful coastline. Jaw dropping scenery and up close to the most amazing wild dolphins. Dream trip for all of us, but especially my daughters seeing dolphins in their natural environment. Oh, and the boat ride is super fun !!
Wonderful experience

Very nice experience.
Adrian_T, Jul 2022
Apart from magnificent view of Algarve coastal we were also lucky to meet the dolphins in their natural habitat. Morning ride if it matters…
Highly recommended boat tour!
Vanessa_J, Jun 2022
Although we couldn’t find dolphins, the caves were beautiful. Our guide was really competent and even gave explanations in different languages so that everybody on the boat could easily follow his words (English, French & Spanish). Better prepare to get wet (wear a rain coat or anything that dries quickly) while considering that it’s windy, esp. when speeding up. It was a great experience and we highly recommend it!
Wonderful experience
Tracey_Y, Jun 2022
Absolutely loved it. Saw loads dolphins. Caves were beautiful. Wonderful experience. Highly recommended
Caves and Dolphins
Chloe_J, Jun 2022
we stayed in a hotel about a hours walk away from the marina we got a uber which was €11 from our hotel to the marina so was really cheap on transport to and from the experience was really good and being out in the sea and visiting the caves and hearing the stories about the caves was so interesting we didn’t see the dolphins but the search for them was fun! would 1000%% recommend
Great, beautiful and unique ! 💕
Stefany_P, Jun 2022
Wow very nice trip, I like everything! The caves was amazing and unique and we found the dofpfins and that was great experience! Ours guide Rui das the 👍 job, explain to us and everything and have fun! Thank you for the trip!
Great trip and highly recommend!
Lisa_C, Jun 2022
The caves were amazing and the team went out of their way to locate the dolphins. I was a little surprised that the trip was on an inflatable but it worked out well as we were able to get into spaces that larger boats would not be able to negotiate. But it’s not a trip to take if you will need a bathroom mid-trip. It did last the listed 2.5 hours. We had an absolutely great time!
Amazing Day of Fun!
Anne_R, May 2022
This trip was awesome, we actually got to see a pod of dolphins and they came so close to the boat. We watched them for ages before heading for the scenic coastline. The guide and captain were really great, and definitely gave us a fantastic trip. Highly recommend.
Amazing experience
Lucy_E, Mar 2022
Our guide was friendly and informative and the views around the cliffs and caves were stunning. However, the icing on the cake was finding ourselves among a pod of dolphins, visibly emerging just a few feet from us. A rare treat - thank you 🐬😊
Excellent value for money, great experience
