We went with two young ones (3 and 6) and with a flat sea all was fine. Seemed a very capable and safety-conscious crew with easy banter and good knowledge. Although obviously all much-repeated and common to them they managed to keep it fresh and light and fun. We saw loads of dolphins and it never felt we were intruding, just following along or getting ahead. One and a half hours well spent and would definitely recommend. No idea what the others who offer the same trips are like. As an (amateur) sailor, I do know this boat was well-maintained and a competently handled.

We were taken on a small RNLI style speedboat 3 miles out to sea, the boat trip itself was fab. ..the dolphins came right up to the boat and were leaping around and playing...the guide was very informative and encouraged questions etc..We got to take loads of photos. ..would definitely use seafari again. Great value. ..they even let my 9 yr old ho for free as a birthday gift!

The boat 'Tornado' was pretty quick and had a couple of controlled spins before going back into the harbour. We saw a total of three dolphins and didn't bother looking elsewhere for more.

Fantastic trip, we were lucky enough to see quite a few dolphins which was amazing! We haggled and paid 100 euros for 4 of us.

With many Dolphin trips to choose from we are really happy to had chosen Seafaris. I booked a trip online in the evening with my smartphone for the following day - sent the payment with PAYPAL. Within minutes SEAFARIS were on the phone, unfortunately the trip I had booked was being cancelled due to a problem with the boat. However they could offer an alternative company, same time but different location from my booking. I immediately thought the worse....however SEAFARIS offered to collect us from our hotel - Myself, my wife and three kids, take us to and from the new location and refunded 50euros straight off.
Customer service in the extreme, we were collected in two cars a jeep and family hatchback, had a great journey chatting with our "drivers" ( didn't get there names - one was a teacher and the other was married to a tax inspector !!! ) absolutely wonderful people...we were taken to SEALIFE Dolphin watch where again we were treated with the utmost customer focus...great trip out on the rib, found a pod of dolphins, which swam with and around the boat before returning ashore... my daughter did get a little seasick due to the swell, the crew were fantastic , sympathetic and made her feel good again...on getting ashore we were given the option to explore and let them know when we wanted to return to our hotel...what a great day. If you are looking for a family day out, made to feel welcome, made to feel safe and learn about sealife off the algrave coast you will not get better - SEAFARIS OR SEALIFE DOLPHIN WATCH.
