“Just experience”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

Vertigem are the top dolphin watching experience in the area - crew are friendly (not pushy) and relaxed, and professional enough to know where to take you so you do find the estuarine bottle-nosed dolphins - on our trip they found the whole pod together, youngsters and all. The boat was sailed carefully so as not to disturb the pod and gave us plenty of time to see and experience them.

“A fantastic awe inspiring experience”
Reviewed September 19, 2013 via mobile

This was such a great trip and really good value; cheaper than similar trips from Troia. You go out on a stunning catamaran and i recommend sitting on the nets at the front, you feel like you are floating over the waves. The guide Luis was informative and spoke great English. We saw loads of big dolphins, you feel so privileged to be alongside them out in the wild. Take a jacket, even in august it was chilly in the morning mist. You have to do this, it is a once in a lifetime experience. We took three kids aged 12, 10 and 7 who absolutely loved it.

“Do this when in Setubal”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

I spend 14 days in Setubal and this was the very best thing we did. Actually we went twice with them. ones to watch dolphines and it was a fantastic trip. However the second trip was even better. it was a wine tasting cruise. The wine was fantstic, the dolphines fun and the athmosphere illuminating. If you are a couple I really hope you ones in your lifetime has the opertunity to go on a wine tasting cruise with them.

“Wonderful trip on the river, watching dolphins”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

We enjoyed a fantastic afternoon out on the River Sado, watching the dolphins and seeing the lovely views of the Arrábida and Setubal. The crew were really friendly and took time to come around and talk to each group about the dolphins, switching easily from Portuguese to English to French. This trip was well worth it and a really enjoyable experience.

“A once in a lifetime experience.”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

We decided to take a Vertigem Azul cruise with my husband and 7 year old daughter and 2 year old son. All I can say is that it is one of those days you know you will never forget. We left with the dread that maybe we would be part of the unlucky 5% who don't get to see the dolphins but as soon as we got on the boat, a luxurious maxi catamaran, that in itself was worth every penny. The boat trip itself was an out of this world experience... luxury ++++++++. After an hour, the dolphin ballet began.... the crew knew exactly where to find them and for over an hour, we sat back and enjoyed !!!!! It was difficult to know where to look because there were dolphins everywhere around us with dolphins even coming up to the boat at times and swimming under the nets you can sit or lie out on. The weather was perfect, the Vertigem Azul staff were so kind and professionnal, taking lots of time to explain and share their experience of the dolphin family with us all, the boat was majestic and the children and adults were all ecstatic. What a day. Thank you for life long memories Vertigem azul.
