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.

Very good guide! The small boat (zodiac) makes it a real adventure. Very professional with respect for nature.

I chose Cape Cruiser because of the reviews from TA and I was so glad that I did. From the moment I contacted them via email (I was organizing the trip while still in the States), they were prompt, friendly, and very helpful. When I emailed, I asked for Thursday or Friday morning and was told we were scheduled for... More

We did the dolphine tour and it was incredible nice. The guide, the intro and of course the tour itself was perfect. We had a lot of fun and it was really interesting to see the animals in their natural environment

I made this 2 hours trip together with a friend of mine and I can strongly recommend it. The insights in geology provided by the crew as well as the fantastic and spectacular scenery made it the climax of our journey to the Algarve. Great value, worth every Euro! Thanks a lot to the Cape Cruiser Team which answered all... More

This was a great trip for our family - the guides were very knowledgeable of dolphins, whales and general marine wildlife - we were fortunate to see two pods of dolphins relatively close to shore and we spotted one whale - the cruiser was very comfortable and it was a great few hours at sea for the 5 of us!...

Thank you for your review. It was very lucky of us to find 2 different groups of dophins and a whale as a "cherry on top of the cake". We never know what we can observe in our trips. It is always a surprise. It was so nice to meet you and we wish you all the best. More

This is really good. I did trip with my 11, 8 and 5 year old. The Cape Cruiser team are really welcoming. Brilliant with kids and really educational. We saw common dolphins. Kids loved it. If you're staying near Sagres with or without kids this is a must.

We had a great trip Dolphin watching after heading out to see for around 30 mins we discovered a feeding pod. The crew were very respectful turning off engines and cruising towards the pod, as we got there most of the dolphins moved on meaning the only ones left were the curious ones and that is exactly how it should...

In our tours we try to minimize our impact as much as we can. We decrease the velocity when approaching the group of dolphins and we follow the guidelines of the law. Also we have several rules that we need to follow to not stress the wild animals. And we do it because a good approach to the animals is... More
