We went out with the Cape Cruiser crew in September. The crew were very knowledgeable and patient - the dolphins were a long way out on this day so we took a while to see them but when we did it was well worth it. Lots of dolphins and a really memorable experience

Fun trip. Saw porpoises and dolhphins which ran with and under the boat. They also took us close to the cliffs to look at sea caves which was spectacular. Knowledgeable and informative guide who spoke good English. Really well run with the emphasis on safety and welfare of the animals we were watching. Will go again when return to Sagres.... More

Easy to book and find in Sagres Port. Friendly and informative. Great boat ride with the added luck of seeing a pod of Dolphins that came right up to and under the boat. Well recommended.

Thank you for your review. It is so nice when the dolphins decide to boat ride with us. Off course not all the species do it. But we were lucky enough to see it. =) More

We had a great family time on this Dolphin trip. The briefing was very informative, the guide was a marine biologist studying dolphins with very interesting facts and the captain of the boat/raft was also very safety conscience. Both daughters (4 and 11) loved it and we highly recommend this trip to anyone. We saw plenty of dolphins and could... More

Dolphin watching is the perfect activity for families. But sometimes I think that the adults enjoy as much as the kids. True, right? Thank you so much for your words and we appreciated your review about us. The best regards. More

My family, including children of 6 and 9 years, all enjoyed a morning dolphin cruise. The sea was very calm so it was comfortable in the zodiac and no one got wet! We were lucky to spot common and bottle nose dolphin pods who both gave us great displays. A memorable and enjoyable trip for all. Our guide was a... More

Very friendly and helpful in booking the trip. The trip itself was great, with lots of knowledge shared in a fun way. We got to see lots of dolphin and some fantastic jumping Tuna. I would recommend Cape Cruiser to anyone wishing to take a dolphin trip.
