Such a great experience - we had an absolutely lovely afternoon watching lots of dolphins and being taking well care of by the staff. Highly recommend this trip!

L’expérience était vraiment sympa niveau rapport qualité/prix! Attention le point de rendez-vous n’est pas le bon!! nous avons eu des difficultés pour le trouver. Lorsque vous vous situez face à l’océan et que derrière vous il y a le Port Setubal écrit en grand sur une façade jaune il faut vous dirigez vers la gauche au niveau du quai ou se trouve pleins de bateaux et chercher une personne avec un t-shirt bleu ! Ensuite l’expérience été proposé en langue Française mais pas de traducteur français lors de notre tour, une personne nous a alors traduit en anglais ! En dehors de cela c’était vraiment super je recommande vraiment Petit moment pour voir les dauphins 🐬 puis magnifique vu sur la côte avec un petit temps dédié à un plongeon !!

Un po’ di inconvenienti iniziali: mi hanno chiesto di stampare la ricevuta che mi era arrivata via email, chiaramente impossibile da fare perché ero in vacanza e, di conseguenza, con poca voglia di recarmi alla copisteria o tanto meno di cercarne una. Poi mi sembra l’opzione migliore mostrare la prenotazione tramite telefono considerando che si sta facendo un’escursione in cui si tutela la natura al 100%. Mi sono venuti a prendere a Troia perché ho perso la barca con partenza da Setúbal, estremamente gentili e disponibili. Troppa gente ragazzi, dovreste mettere una sorta di “numero chiuso” eravamo circa in 20 !!!! No.. Non si può (senza traduzione in inglese preparatevi ad ascoltare solo la spiegazione in portoghese) Delfini MAGNIFICI e massimo rispetto per l’ambiente 🦈💖

We saw quite a few dolphins! The guide knows the area very well if you have questions. The boat is not the same as the one in the picture, it's more of an old sailing boat (which has its charm). It wasn't so easy to get explanations from the guide because it's a large group, but it wasn't a problem in the end.

Es war alles super, sehr tolles Team, Delfine gesehen. ABER falscher Treffpunkt angegeben. War per Telefon dann zu klären und der Punkt war nur 3 Gehminuten entfernt.

Experiencia razonable pero larga para avistar los delfines por poco tiempo, traducción no ofrecida, ni ningún vino o refrigerio. Amables pero no era lo que esperaba.
