My Fiancee and I visited Portugal at the end of June and was recommended this trip by the travel guides in the centre of Albufeira old town who were extremely helpful.
We walked to the harbour from Old town Albufeira which took about 30mins but was lovely as you get great views over the bay.
All the staff at Dolphins Driven were very friendly and welcoming.
We didn't really know what to expect but I think we thought it was probably going to be a gentle boat ride, however it turned out to be a very fast ride crashing over the waves and getting very very wet in the process... so much fun! We grabbed front seats on the boat and I think this added to the experience and am so glad we got them, however if you aren't too keen on the bumps etc towards the back might be slightly better for you.
We went really far out and came across a family of dolphins. They literally swam right next to and underneath the boat. It was beautiful. The crew did a great job of taking us to the right areas but at the same time not going to near and allowing the Dolphins to cross our path rather than us crossing theirs.
We had a digital cam but none of our photos came out - this is really just about the experience itself and I wouldn't recommend taking expensive cams on the boat as you do get thrown around and soaking wet.
We then went back to shore and went in and out the caves. Really interesting and the crew were telling us all about the different towns and coves etc.
Would recommend this trip to anyone looking for a fun exhilarating experience. Not for anyone who gets sea sick or wants a relaxing trip out to sea!
Thank you to the staff there - we shall definitely come back if we visit the area again :)
