I really enjoyed the Sancho/Golfinhos trail and the view from the mirante, but I didn’t get to see any dolphins so I got bored and left.

We visited about two hours before sunset as pair of visiting Sancho within the reserve. The cliffs surrounding the bar are dramatic. The wave action below was a sho in itself. The variety of blue hues was impressive. On top of that the spinner dolphins...More

It is advertised that you will probably see dolphins. This is not true. We were told buy the researchers there that its quite rare to watch them. Nonetheless, the view is great, makes it a good trail.

Trovao dos Mares should go slower when sailing through the bay. They go too fast on the way back and you can barely enjoy the ride with the dolphins.

If you want to see hundreds of dolfins at once, early in the morning, this is the place. You are on an overlook tho so you will not seem them up close but they do provide binoculors.

Nice beach to pay a visit, but not to spend all day there, it's small. You can visit there walking from Cacimba do Padre beach.

We visited the site 5 times during our 7 day visit. There was an ocean surge for many of these days so the Dolphins did not show up. On one day all was Ok in the ocean and they showed up. 270+. What a site...More

The entry fee to the island is about 65 reais per day and the park fee is 97 reais for 10 days! You can rent a snorkel but it is worthy to bring yours, it is cheaper and better!
