Very well informed staff and well organised. Trip can be rough if windy and the boat is pretty bumpy over the waves. Fun though. Not for very small children or anyone who gets sea sick. Decent value for money.

They take the time you need to get close to the Dolphins in a safe and respectful way. Deborah can speak several languages, so everyone in the boat can understand her. And finally, since there was a traffic jam at the... More

Life jackets and waterproof coats provided, lovely marine biologist guide answering any questions along with the driver/(Skipper?) who had a fantastic sense of humour. It was great fun and after a long way out to sea we were rewarded with the... More

Hello. Thank you for your review about us. Seeing 3 groups of dolphins is really lucky. Normally we only see 1 or 2 groups per trip. It is fun for us so I imagine for you! Hope you enjoyed Portugal. More

I was waiting for this dolphin watching so much but eventually it didn't turn out really great. At the very beginning I got totally soaked by the huges waves so I had to sit on the boat entirely wet - in long pants - for 1,5 hours. The boat was cruising very fast so we literally bumped every time to... More
