Wanted to do a rib boat trip of the West Coast. Although advertised, a combination of weather, demand and a sense that the marine biologist tour guides prefer dolphin watching to coast watching, meant that we did not get to do a West Coast your which is a pity as it is difficult to see by car. As a compromise,... More

I went there twice for dolphins watching and the two tours were different and complementary. Once i saw a dozen of dolphins and the second time hundreds. Great two experiences in two beautiful spots. Pleasant and professional staff.

We could not have asked for a better dolphin watching trip. The crew were experienced marine biologists and were excellent at answering all our questions. We had young children with us (aged 2 and 3) who were safe and secure on the RIB. We found dolphins quickly and soon we were sailing in the middle of a school of very... More

We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the experience and felt safe onboard with your kids! Almost all our crew members are marine biologists, and the ones who aren't are very keen on the subject - we work hard to have high quality tours that are more than just a boat trip. Hope to welcome you onboard again sometime... More

We went with them last year and had such a great time, we went again this year too. The first time we were out for nearly 3 hours and ended up 10 miles off shore before we managed to find dolphins. There was a large pod of bottle nose dolphins and we spent 20 or 30 mins watching them despite... More

Thank you for your review! We know that nature has its surprises and sometimes we just don't find dolphins, but we always try our best to make each trip special. The forecast is also a surprise: it's a question of luck! We already have a research database with 9 years of information on cetaceans in the region and we will... More

We went on a dolphin watching trip from Sagres on 8th August. Small RIB with seating for 12. Very knowledgeable Team - Marine Biologists who certainly know a lot about dolphins and whales. We must have gone out about 5 or 6 miles and then we were totally surrounded by dolphins. All sizes, big ones, medium ones and babies. So... More

A beautiful sunny day, and a calm sea we left offshore in one of their boat, and 10 minutes later, dolphins in freedom, not in a park you can if you're fast enough taking pictures of dolphins jumping, who plays with the boat pass underneath or not and emerge from the other side, we have seen two types of dolphins,...

We saw a mother and tiny baby and lots of groups of dolphins who swam with the boat. The briefing before was extremely helpful, the boat very comfotable and the staff could not have been more lovely. The crew stayed out way past the allotted time just to make sure we saw lots of dolphins - an exceptional experience.

We did the dolphin trip on a really windy day, we first went a long the amazingly beautiful rocky coastline of the Western Algarve and when the wind fell down we went looking for dolphins some miles away form the coastline. After about one hour we spotted two bottlenose dolphins and followed them until they swam away from us. During... More

Sara Magalhaes and Ricardo Silva went out of their way to make our trip throughly enjoyable. For our trip they sought out seabirds and dolphins and provided information on all, answering questions as we went along. The 'rib' is great - fast, fun and exciting, but safe and it can slow down instantly when something of interest comes into view.... More
