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!

We went out one morning on the half day dolphin watch, in search of the resident wild bottlenose dolphin group. Aboard a beautiful spacious catamaran with passionate and knowledgable hosts and guides. We spent approx 30 mins observing the pod of 27 dolphins whilst they leapt, played and even fished. A real treat and great value for €30. A must... More

I checked the website right before I left the hotel and it said that there were two trips per day from Setubal, one at 9:30 am and another at 2:30 pm. I arrived with my friend at the company's office at 1:10 pm to find it closed. I called two times with no reply. We decided to walk by the... More

This three hour boat trip was wonderful. We got a fantastic view of all the dolphins. The staff were extremely friendly, kind to the children and very knowledgeable of the surroundings.

breaching the clear waters of the Sado estuary - can't beat it really. Note: do take binoculars as this is responsible tourism and though you are fairly close you will still miss some of the wonderful details. They give a comprehensive explanation about this bottlenose dolphin community and children and adults alike can try to spot by the dorsal fin... More
