The caves are amazing and the Dolphin's Driven boat offers a great tour that balances a boat small enough to get close with one that has good speed without bouncing everyone to death. Highly recommended.

Great tour around caves and coastline with the added element of dolphins. Regrettably, I didn't see any but it was all worth it still. Great skipper, awesome guide and a trip to remember.

Algarve is the place to be for your holidays. Only not in July and August! A boat-tour with Dolphin Driven should certainly on your bucket-list. The big variety of caves is amazing and the close encounters with dolphins something you will never forget. Just spend...More

I'm going to albufeira in the first week of November. I would love to see some wild dolphins, am I likely to be able to go on a tour at this time of year or will it be too cold/ or will the tours have stopped if it's out of season? Thanks in advance!x

Hi Charlotte, I think dolphin season lasts till November but I suspect it would be colder than summer. Maybe ask the operator? Sorry I am not of much help...
