Full description
Explore the famous caves of the Algarve and try to spot dolphins from a 16-meter-long powerboat. Your trip starts at the Marina of Albufeira, where you'll set off along the coastline of the south of Portugal. Pass by the the areas of Galé, Senhora da Rocha, and Marinha until you reach Benagil cave and Carvoeiro. Marvel at the unique rock formations, then enter and explore the most famous caves. Benefit from the knowledgeable crew, who can tell you detailed information about the area. Then, cruise away from the coast to look for dolphins playing in the wild. If the weather permits, there will be a quick stop for a refreshing swim in the crystal-clear ocean, before the experienced crew takes you safely back to the Albufeira Marina.

    We had booked for 1/9 with Algarve Charters but as the boat broke down they postponed it to 3/9 but on another boat from another company (X Ride). They were all (from both companies) very professional, COVID-19 security very effective and demanding. Extremely pleasant tour with visits to caves, stop for bathing in the sea. We saw dolphins near the beach and then another large group far from shore. Big boat, fast and very safe. Excellent environmental clarification about pollution in the seas and care to be taken by the boat captain, Pedro. Thanks to the entire crew, Pedro, Eduardo and Dominic. Congratulations! It's worth the ride.

    A beautiful walk along the Algarve coast with brief explanations along the way and with a stop to see the dolphins in their midst. Very friendly and helpful staff and especially with children. It was not easy to see the dolphins but after some time and after the insistence on the search by the team there we were able to see them. It was a delight for all visitors❤️. Recommended tour. PS: Don't forget your coat, especially if it's 09:30h.

    Stupendous! Beautiful experience! They accompanied us to see the beautiful dolphins, then to see a series of caves by entering them with the boat! Really an experience to repeat. I recommend this company to everyone, very kind staff, super helpful and friendly. They asked us several times if everything was okay and especially if we needed something. during the tour they also explained everything they took us to visit.
