We hired a private boat 6 adults and two children. The marine biologist had very good knowledge and the initial briefing prior to take off was very informative! Our captain was very friendly and extremely accommodating! we went off for about an hour and saw nothing. Patience is the key! Then out of nowhere Dolphins appear. Lovely creatures in their... More

This is an exzeptionell excursion to do. Whilst of course the success to see dolphins, whales or other marine sea life depends a bit on luck, they do what they can and keep contact to other companies. We were guided by Sophia who very friendly and knowledgable and great time explaining to the passengers. We very much appreciated this trip... More

We had a lovely marine biologist on our boat but unfortunately we saw very few dolphins (literally only a few). In fact, my kids didn't see any of the dolphins because the dolphins were at a distance mostly in front of the boat and my children couldn't see over the people in front of us. Anyway, my children (2.5 and... More

Dear passenger, we are sad to hear that you did not enjoy our tour as many other families do and that your kids were both seasick, which is a rare thing to happen with northwest winds. About the number of dolphins observed: as you know we are dealing with wild animals on their habitat, they are not waiting for us... More

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

Dear LeinsterAdvisor, thank you for your review! Although it might look that our marine biologists prefer dolphin watching :), the truth is that everyone lines up when we have a wild west coast tour (which is quite rare, unfortunatlelly, mainly due to the prevailing northwest winds). Anyway we are happy to hear that you enjoyed the dolphin watching tour and... 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
