If you have a chance to see the dolphins...do and do it with these guys. Beautiful catamaran, very stable and sturdy. you are literally in the water and the dolphins are within your arm's reach. Wonderful opportunity, not to be missed. Worth every penny and you'll be talking about it for weeks. Staff is completely courteous and will do what... More

We went for half a day excursion to watch dolphins. The personnel was very professional and kind and the boat really nice and clean. We had a wonderful experience! Thank you!!

Not cheap but it was lovely, really worth it, we saw lots of dolphins including the youngest one. Being in a catamaran adds to the experience especially on the way back when they put the sail on. Even without the dolphins it would still be a great experience. Weather was hot but great. There is also refreshments you can buy... More

I highly recommend the dolphin tour, we saw dolphins really close to the boat for nearly one hour, and the staff was very nice, willing to share with us all the experience they had while working for this tour during more than 20 years. Don't miss it, since it's not very known and shared in tour guides

We took this tour as part of a trip to the natural park it was by far and a way the highlight of our day. We have never seen so many Dolphins. The crew were most informative and helpful and told us all about the 29 dolphins that live in the estuary. This trip should not be missed.

We decided to go with Vertigem Azul as the reviews on Trip Advisor suggested they are the best. We managed to find the pickup point near the quayside in Setubal and then climbed onboard the catamaran which was immaculate with plenty of seating area and shade. Vertigem Azul do two daily trips; 0930 & 1400 at a cost of €30/adult... More

Vertigem Azul have been monitoring the Sado Dolphins for over 12 years and know each one by sight. Their trip either by small boat or catamaran is something that you will never forget and is within the top two activities within the entire area. Their trip is suitable for all ages and do not forget to take your camera.

Great dolphin watch. You can really sea them around. It's a group of 27 dolphins that lives there and the guide is an expert and really cares for their well being. We learned their names (I liked Azul and her son Batalya ) and habits and it was a highlight in our trip

We and our 2 kids had a wonderful 3 hours on the beautiful catamaran! We saw a lot of dolphins. It was magic and not very expensive!
