It was my birthday and I wanted to do something special. Nature has always been a part of my life, growing up in South Africa, I always enjoyed the wonders of the animal life. Deciding on a boat ride and to see the Dolphin life was such an experience. Not only is it so romantic for couples but a fun outing for family and truly educational for kids. To see a school of dolphins swimming meters away from you is such an experience. Exploring and learning about the coastal area of Arrabida was just magical. Not only do I recommend this, but I highly recommend it. The crew are really friendly and ate fluent in both Portuguese and English.

This was money well spent! We were lucky enough to see three dolphin pods on our trip. I think the crew were as excited as we were The crew were friendly and knowledgeable and kept us informed of places of interest on the way there and back. The only thing Iwould recommend is if you go on the 10.00am trip to take a sweater as it is chilly on the water until the sun comes out. A great experience!

Croisière très sympa, on voit les dauphins presque à chaque fois. Les membres de l'équipage donnent de précieux renseignements sur les dauphins mais aussi sur les bâtiments historiques observés sur la côte. On reçoit un verre de moscatel ou jus d'orange, ainsi qu'une demi-figue, tout cela dans une ambiance agréable et en étant bien assis !
