  • Albufeira: 2.5-Hour Caves & Dolphin Watching Boat Tour

    1. Albufeira: 2.5-Hour Caves & Dolphin Watching Boat Tour

    Look for dolphins and hidden caves on a half-day dolphin watching cruise of the Algarve from Albufeira. Bring your swimsuit and towel, as the activity includes a stop for a swim. Marvel at the rock formations, and access areas that other vessels can’t reach. A marine biologist will be on board to provide all necessary information about these wonderful creatures. Be aware that as dolphins are wild animals, sightings can not be guaranteed.

    The caves were beautiful! Time was wasted while people swam (less than half the group wanted to swim). So while the 20 or so people swam the rest of us were sitting in the sun with nothing to do. We should have used that time to sightsee or find dolphins. We were unable to find any but that is not the tour company's fault.
