Wow! Fantastic experience!

A great tour heading west on the Algarve coast! Good explanations of the coast and the caves. The highlight was of course Dolphin Watching !!! We saw many dolphins right around our boat ... Very impressive! God's creation is wonderful! We were on the road for 2.5 hours. You only have to show your smartphone ticket briefly in the office at the port and then there are boarding passes. Parking in the parking garage at the port costs extra, but it is uncomplicated and short distances. TOP!

An excellent experience for us (family with 2 children 12 & 10 years). The dolphins were very far out and the skipper had to search for a long time to bring us dolphins. The trip lasted 2.5 hours and was nice. From the coast you have breathtaking views of the caves and the cliffs

Fantastic trip showing the caves and coastline but the highlight for us was seeing the Dolphins they were amazing. The staff were also brilliant they were marine biologists and knew a lot about the Dolphins. I would highly recommended this trip.
