What You Can Expect

Make your way to a departure point in Ponte Delgado, then start your dolphin tour with a briefing on your itinerary, and on how to swim with the dolphins without disrupting their habitat.

Don a swim suit and shoes, then board the dolphin boat for the trip along the coast. With an experienced captain at the helm, the odds of seeing dolphins are great. When dolphins are spotted, climb into the water to swim near the pod, watching the sleek mammals move through the water.

If possible, the captain will loop the boat around so you can swim several times, climbing in the boat between each experience. At the end of your three hour dolphin tour, return to shore, where this excursion concludes in Ponte Delgado.

Please note: The necessary equipment for this dolphin tour includes swim suit, shoes that can get wet, a towel, and dry clothes to change into after the activity. It’s also a good idea to bring a sun hat, water, sunscreen, a waterproof bag for electronics, a windbreaker, lycra shirt, and Neoprene gloves.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2017

This was amazing. There were six of us on our boat with a guide and driver. We went out to a large group of dolphins and went in the sea a pair at a time. The visibility wasn't terribly clear because it was a cloudy day, it would have been amazing on a brighter day, but we all saw dolphins very close in the water. Each pair went in the water four times. You slipped in quietly over the edge and there was a ladder to use to climb out. We'd been provided with wet suits, mask and snorkel, life jacket and waterproof jacket for warmth after we'd been in the sea. The guide was great and very informative about the dophins. Swimming with dolphins was the children's absolute highlight of the trip!

It was a small group tour which made for a personal feeling. It was a cloudy day so it was cold to get into water. The skipper did best possible runs to get us into water at appropriate times. A few of us knew we would b cold n waited till last few runs to go on. Skipper scknowledged this. Amazing
