in a sunny and windy day I started my trip with all information I can need to a successful journey. A brief explanation was given by a friendly marine biologist, she explained the biology and ecology of cetaceans. On board a skilled skipper followed the direction of the gennets!

Thank you for your review. We are happy to know that you enjoyed our trip. Common Dolphins (Delphinus delphis) are the most common specie that we sight in Sagres. But we never know when we can be surprise by a different one. =) More

Seeing dolphins was a very special experience. The guide was really helpful, engaging, informative, knowledgeable and friendly. The boat driver was also very friendly. The boat was late coming back from the last trip, so we were late leaving, but luckily for us we didn't have any afternoon plans that had to be rearranged. The journey out was fun and... More

Thanks Anne. You are right, the return was quite bumping. But the animals are wild and sometimes we have to go far away to find them and then the return is not so pleasant as we wish. But it is an experience of a life time. Hope to see you again and that you enjoyed your holidays in Sagres. Regards. More

A wonderful trip, well worth the cost of 32euros. A very helpful guide who was very informative. We were lucky enough to see many Dolphins. The only downside was the rough ride back to harbour.

Hello Sue. We had a great sighting of the Bottlenose Dolphins. Amazing specie. Sometimes when we return the sea is more rough but the nature is always impredictable and it changes quite fast. But the most important is the sighting and we had a good one. =) Thank you for your review. Regards More

We chose cape cruiser because of the warm and interesting talk we had with Dalia. It proved a great decision. The trip was an exciting and fascinating experience. We went in april and had the boat for us alone. The team had to go quite far out in the sea (20 km) to find the dolfins but that made the... More

Hello Christophe. Thank you for your review. Knowing that your family enjoyed is priceless for us. And they were very curious that is the best, when the kids question us about the animals and the nature. We also hope to see you again. Regards More

We went on a Cape Cruiser dolphin trip today and thought it was fantastic. It had to be cancelled twice due to poor weather and Cape Cruiser staff were extremely on the ball with keeping us up to date on cancellations and offering alternative dates. The briefing beforehand was very informative and a great way to gain insight into what... More

I went with my three daughters on a trip with Cape Cruiser. The trip was at the time instructive and great fun. You could tell that Dalia and our skipper had genuine interest for the sea animals and the passengers aboard. Thanks very much and see you next time! Arn Amber Sara and Tanne

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
