My wife and I booked this trip via our thomsons rep at our hotel. Paid 35eur each and it was worth every penny. The dolphins driven group are based at Albufeira marina ( as are every boat trip company). We went on the 12pm trip. We were given life jackets, a free camera pouch and plastic dolphin ball which was a nice touch. The boat was a decent size, and our trip was full. Unlucky for us, we were sat behind really tall ignorant spaniards, with iPads???!! But aside from that, the trip was excellent. We got to see a gorgeous family of bottle nose dolphins on the first part of the trip. All the boat companies radio each other when dolphins are spotted, so they know where to go and see them. It was magical. The dolphins had a baby recently so didn't come very close to our boat, but we still got loads of fab photos. The skippers on the boat were friendly and explained what was happening at various parts of the trip. We went to the caves, close to Portimao at end of the trip. The caves are awesome, really worth seeing! Lots of little beaches and places you will never see or find unless you go on a boat trip.
