Great dolphin watching on nice catamaran

We saw a lot of dolphins. Crew was very friendly. We like the boat type very much: a catamaran, so stable and fast. Great to lie on the front nets just above the water so you can... read more

We saw a lot of dolphins. Crew was very friendly. We like the boat type very much: a catamaran, so stable and fast. Great to lie on the front nets just above the water so you can almost touch the dolphins.

We reserved our seats months prior via email, and were reassured to see they had remembered booking. The yacht is clean, relaxed and looks safe. Oh, and yes we saw the dolphins at close proximity

The excursion started off well and the visit to see the Dolphins is worth seeing. Unfortunately the return is quite long and it was not explained to us that the catamaran spends an extra 30 minutes to drop off passengers in the smelly port of Setubal. As we started off in Troia we found this annoying. When we asked the... More

Twenty three members of International Women in Portugal enjoyed a lovely cruise on a 65' catamaran out of Setubal (just under an hours drive south of Lisbon). Very efficient English speaking office staff. The boat crew could not have been more considerate of the comfort and needs of all passengers. Beverages on board. Lots of ohs and ahs from passengers...

We took their three hour dolphin watching tour from Troia. This was a catamaran that seats 80 people. Already a few minutes after departure we saw the first dolphins and sailed side by side for thirty minutes. After that, the boat had to sail away because they must not be bothered longer. We liked the personal way the explanations were... More

This outing is a total delight. We boarded a large and very comfortable catamaran at the wharf in front of the office and proceeded to head out across the bay of the Sado River to Troia to pick up more people Most people settled on the nets at the front of the boat and in gleaming sunshine we motored slowly...

This boat tour allows a unique encounter with wild dolphins on fantastic boat. The crew is very experienced and cares about the nature. You can easily book online on SeaBookings, to avoid fully booked boats. Don't forget to bring your swimsuit, towel, sunscreen and also something warm.

We had a great trip with Vertigem Azul. We got on in Setubal and were one of the first so managed to get a spot on the nets. The trip was enjoyable and after a bit we spotted the dolphins and travelled with them for a bit. Unfortunately after a while other boats started to follow us and it became... More

Went on the 2.30pm trip, the boat is amazing, absolutely huge, pristine and great fun. Try and go on the nets at the front for the best experience, you feel like a million dollars! We saw loads of Dolphins, they were swimming by the boat, jumping out from the water, felt like they were putting on a show just for... More
