The tour with Allboats was absolutely worth it! The guide was super funny and told a lot of interesting things without getting boring! The tour was always accompanied by music, but there were always quiet moments when you could enjoy the scenery and the trip on the sea. Of course, seeing the dolphins was a real highlight - we were very lucky and the guide gave us time to admire these wonderful animals in their free habitat! It was a successful trip including a fantastic sunset :)

Great time to spend on board with Captain Arnaud the Flying Dutchman whom I recommend for his good humor and his unparalleled knowledge of the region! You learn ten times more in almost 3 hours by his side than with someone else and you have access to places of which he has the secret To do imperatively during your visit to Albufeira (ps: for those who like a little speed you will be served aha he has a very good pilot who accompanies him during this activity)

Super moment passer à bord avec Tania (la guide) que je vous recommande pour sa bonne humeur et ses connaissances hors pair de la région ! La visite était toujours accompagnée de musique, mais il y avait toujours des moments calmes où l'on pouvait profiter du paysage et du voyage en mer. Le bateau est relativement petit ce qui permet une bonne interaction avec la guide et le capitaine, en plus il rentre dans des lieux que les plus grands ne pourraient pas y aller. Bien sûr, voir les dauphins était un moment magique - nous avons eu beaucoup de chance et la guide nous a donné le temps d'admirer ces merveilleux animaux dans leur habitat naturel ! Le moment de baignade même que court (10min) était cool et rafraîchissant. 2h30 qui se sont transformé en presque 3h. ( ps: elle a un très bon capitaine qui l’accompagne lors de cette activité )
