Ria Formosa: Dolphin-Watching Boat Tour

1. Ria Formosa: Dolphin-Watching Boat Tour

On this 2.5-hour dolphin-watching boat tour you’ll pass through the inlet in the Ria Formosa Natural Park and then head out to sea, following the coastline for 1-3 miles. You’ll receive a briefing by the skipper and guides will be available on board to tell you more about the local animal life. During the tour, you’ll observe dolphins in their natural environment. The most commonly sighted species are the short-beaked common dolphin and the common bottlenose dolphin. Other creatures, such as flying fish, ocean sunfish and sea turtles may also be spotted during the tour. Cetaceans are migratory animals, distributed around the world’s seas, and pass along Mallorca’s coast daily. The current rate of spotting dolphins on the boat trips is 95 percent, but guides cannot guarantee sightings as these are wild animals in their natural habitat.

Different and interesting

Glad we found this. Nice way to spend our last morning en route to the airport. Rui was a friendly and informative guide, and we saw parts of local life we would otherwise have missed. Recommended.
