Highlights
  • Book online ahead of time to guarantee a spot on this popular guided tour

  • Go to Carvoeiro Beach and cruise the Atlantic Ocean without getting lost 
  • Easy-to-find meeting spot at Albufeira Marina for convenience
What to Expect
Meet at Albufeira Marina a little before your departure time. Check in, hop aboard a small boat, and get ready to cruise the Atlantic Ocean. Once you get out on the water, relax as your guide takes you to areas to see views of the nearby sandstone cliffs. Head toward Carvoeiro Beach, and get the chance to explore the caves. Afterward, your guide knows some of the best places to spot dolphins. A sighting is not 100-percent guaranteed, but you can possibly see two types of dolphins, common dolphins and bottlenose dolphins. If you do spot them, chances are they’ll be swimming close to your boat in their natural habitat. Your guided tour ends when your boat reaches the Albufeira Marina and docks.

Amazing trip. Watched 2 pods of dolphins for approx 30 mins before heading off to the caves. Perfect for families. The guide was knowledgeable and gave brief descriptions of the sights on the tour. Lasted 2.5 hours with toilets on board.
