We wanted to do something different and see the dolphins. Unfortunately this was not possible due to the time in the year. We went on a grotto trip instead with a motor boat and it started raining. Not a great start, our captain (Nelson), offered to swap our tickets for a trip the next day (great service). We did the... More

I did kayaking and a dolphin trip with them and had a great time on both occasions. They're well organised, have good equipment, friendly and professional staff and the fees are quite acceptable. It's a big thumbs up for Days of Adventure! :D

Highly recommended! We took the trip from Lagos harbor last wednesday, the staff were welcoming and friendly. We were told that there wasn't a 100% guarantee of seeing the dolphins but they had a 96% success rate. At worst case it would be a nice boat trip. After about 35 mins in to the trip, dolphins ! we spent about... More

we did the sea kayaking tour, which was great fun and easy. Great value too at only €25 for 3 hours. You get to go through caves, and up close to the beautiful beaches the coast has. Recommended as a tour group.

Our travel agency had booked this tour for us so we were not sure what we were getting. But it turned out to be great. The guide/boat operator was fluent in English and Portuguese. Joel was entertaining, information and proud of his country as well as the area. His presentation was excellent , slipping between Portuguese and English effortlessly while... More

Went out on Dolphin trip on a recent holiday. We didn't think we were going to spot any but after the best part of an hour we found a group of them. We stayed with them for 20/30 minutes so was most worthwhile trip. The crew on the boat were very good and gave information on the various dolphins. They... More

Although contacted in private, Mr. Steven Shirley has not responded effectively to the good intentions. I was never contacted for refund, nor even to tell me that it was not possible.

The trip was chilled and is suitable.for beginners. I did not find it hard. We stopped on a beach and swam a little bit. Such a nice time. will... More

A last minute trip booked on our last day and wow was it worth it. A HUGE thanks to our host on our boat Marcio who was above and beyond exemplary. Enthusiasm, humour, friendliness - I could go on and on. We had booked to see the caves but while out on the water Marcio heard that dolphins had been... More

Wow. After having given up on spotting any dolphins (nearly an hour and half in to a great boat ride) Sophie spotted a pod and we headed towards them. Within minutes we were surrounded by common dolphins riding the waves with us and playing at the bow of the boat. We stayed what seemed like forever watching 100-200 dolphins putting... More
