What people are saying about Setúbal Municipality

The dolphin watching was great, although the dolphins were further away on our day the crew took us there so we could see the dolphins. Because the dolphins were further away, we were on the road for more than 2.5 hours, which wasn't bad either. We didn't have to pay more for the longer time on the catamaran. In all respects it was a great success for me and my family. Although the weather wasn't the best, the crew were well equipped with blankets to keep warm!!

Very precise and professional. They extended the tour by almost 2h in an attempt to show us the dolphins who (rightly) went about their business. All in respect of this species. Then a family of dolphins rewarded us when we were almost back and let themselves be observed from afar. What can I say: maybe some other operator would have taken us home when time ran out, without problems.

A very nice crew, explained everything to us very well in English. The catamaran is particularly great, you can hang in the nets at the front and see the dolphins up close. We were very satisfied all round and would come back on our next visit. Thanks

A huge catamaran, even with 60 people we were comfortable. Tripulation very nice and attentive, good explanation on the dolphins. Possibility to buy drinks and small snacks. Stop to swim. We liked.

I like seeing the dolphins because they kept on jumping up and down! And it was a beautiful experience for me
