    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.

    We went at 2.30 and it was pretty hot! But as the boat goes pretty fast you get quite wind swept so I guess any time is good. 😊
