We only booked to go on the dolphin seafari as our dolphin driven trip we had booked through Thomson reps at our hotel was cancelled due to a fault with the boat which was a real shame as dolphin driven seems to have much better reviews. Not wanting to waste our afternoon doing more sunbathing we headed into Vilamoura to... More

My partner and I decided to go on the Sea Combi option and booked ourselves on the 3.30pm 3 hour tour which should have consisted of a cruise up to the caves where we would spot dolphins, then get on smaller, individual glass bottom boats to view the caves up close. We were delayed leaving on the trip as the... More

Please read this...!! After deciding to go on a boat trip we picked this company as they offered the best value and seemed popular. The experience started off bad. There was no organization when it came to boarding and it was a mad rush to the boat. While on board there was no safety briefing, nothing mentioned about life jackets... More

A very boring trip, sitting for 45 minutes on outward journey, followed by 45 minute return journey for a boat ride between two rocks! Most of our compariates on board were either frozen or throwing up! Banksey's dismaland had nothing on this..... Upside, there had to be one, the staff on the boat were friendly and very safety conscious.

This was a v disappointing trip. A large number of people crammed on to a catamaran. The majority of time spent queuing to get onto one of two small boats for a very quick trip around one cave and then back to the harbour. There was no attempt at dolphin spotting. We were v disappointed and the glass bottom is... More

My partner and I booked the trip expecting to go out onto the glass bottom boats, through the caves and with an option to swim. We got on the boat there was very little orderer everyone just rushing to get a seat. There was an on-boarded photographer that was coming round and she asked if we would like a picture... More

I wish I had checked Trip Advisor before I booked our trip - the number of poor reviews for this company does not lie! Our trip was booked for the Catamaran Liana for a cruise along the coast where we would transfer onto a galss bottom boat to visit the caves with an opportunity to swim and then possibly see...
