Dolphin Watching and Caves Cruise
From $34.80
Overview
Get to know the Algarve Coast with a 2.5-hour dolphin watching cruise. Take in the views and feel the beautiful ocean breeze as you look out for playful pods of dolphins. Visit the selection of caves that are quintessential to the Algarve and even stop for a swim on one of the gorgeous beaches.
What to Expect
We leave everyday from Albufeira Marina towards the west part of the Algarve coastline ending in the area of Carvoeiro. On a 2h30 hour tour you will see the amazing coastline, caves and beaches, with a stop for a swim. After reaching the last cave, we set course to deep waters in search of the dolphins, and at the same time we can appreciate the spectacular panoramic view of the Algarve coastline.
We ensure a safe ride, by the maximum safety standards and by having all licenses and insurance up to date as well as having qualified skippers on board. We will provide life jackets . 
We recommend that you bring sunblock and a hat.
