We went to Setubal, which is approximately forty minutes drive south of Lisbon ,specifically to see and hopefully photograph dolphins. The trip was set up by Naturetrek and included an afternoon session, followed by a morning session the following day. The cost for participants was 30euros each and the trips were booked in advance. I believe there are several firms... More

We made a reservation for today at 9:30 am. Our family woke up early to get in time, the weather was a bit rainy but we didn't think it would be a problem. After an hour drive we got there, to find the office was closed. Nobody answered our calls. Needless to say that nobody called or mailed us to... More

I went on one of the 3-hour dolphin watching tours and was not disappointed. The staff is very professional and informative and I enjoyed that they walked around the boat to speak to small groups of people directly. They are incredibly knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions. The boat was spacious and comfortable, and I enjoyed that you can... More

Efficient & professional set-up. Booked online in the morning (necessary). Catamaran was almost full - 80 of us, but comfortable and excellent views of dolphins, which were located with ease. Recommended.

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

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
