What you'll do

This host received the official Clean and Safe stamp from Turismo de Portugal


Departing from Albufeira Marina, this discovery of the Algarve coast travels 18 km to the Alfanzina Lighthouse. On this route you will be dazzled by several beaches, rock formations and discover marine caves, with a special highlight on the famous Benagil cave.
After discovering the coast, get ready to feel the sea breeze as the boats pull away from the coast on a quest to find dolphins. We invite you to stay aware and help us search for our friends.
Our goal regarding the watching is that the dolphins come to see you, always respecting the animals and all the norms related to the observation of cetaceans.
You will enjoy a scenic view of the coast and have the opportunity to contemplate wildlife, such as various species of birds, flying fish and maybe even sharks.
The adventure lasts 2h30, in semi-rigid fast boats that take up to 12 passengers for 2 crew members, these being a marine biologist and a “captain” who knows this part of the coast like the palm of his hand.
With just 12 passengers per boat the crew will have the opportunity to provide you a personalized and educational sea trip.
(Please note that the dolphins are wild animals in their natural habitat we can not guarantee their sitting 1

Magnifique activité, nos filles étaient éblouies au contact des dauphins, les explications de Nicolas étaient très intéressantes en plus de sa gentillesse.

Der Trip war sehr gut organisiert! Am Ende haben wir wirklich Delphine gesehn, aber die Klippenlandschaft war auch einmalig vom Boot aus betrachtet. Vielen Dank!

The boat trip was very nice. We saw lots of caves and the beautiful coast. Unfortunately we didnt see any dolphins but the tour guides made a huge effort to search for them, which was an experience in itselft if you have never been on a fast boat before. Dont forget to bring a jacket as the wind might be cold due to the high speed of the boat no matter the temperature and you might get slightly wet.

What an amazing tour! The caves along the coastline were absolutely magical! Then we headed out to find the dolphins and boy did we ever find them! So many beautiful dolphins playing around our boat - truly I could not have asked for a better day and I'm so glad I picked this tour - highly recommend! Our guide was so knowledgeable and made it even that much better! Thank you to all at this tour company - you made this Canadian travelling alone in Portugal very happy - cheers!

Truly magical experience. I had to pinch myself that I was living it. The caves were breathtaking ... but really, finding the huge school of dolphins like we did and being so upclose was such a unique and special experience. I'll treasure it forever. Thank you!

Very worthwhile tour. We were really lucky to see so many dolphins stay with us for so long. The caves were very beautiful but I ended up really wanting to get out onto beached to experience them and the water. Not the tour’s fault however, and If that’s what you’re after better getting a kayak.
