Caves and Dolphin Watching Cruise from Albufeira
From US$43.77
Overview
Avoid the hassle of renting and navigating a boat in unfamiliar territory on a stress-free dolphin watching cruise from Albufeira. A small, motorized boat grants you access to the hard-to-reach caves and grottoes that line Albufeira's coast, while a guide transports you to places with increased dolphin activity. A great option for families, this experience combines education with entertainment.
What to Expect
Meet at Albufeira Marina a little before your departure time. Check in, hop aboard a small boat, and get ready to cruise the Atlantic Ocean.

Once you get out on the water, relax as your guide takes you to areas to see views of the nearby sandstone cliffs. Head toward Carvoeiro Beach, and get the chance to explore the caves.

Afterward, your guide knows some of the best places to spot dolphins. A sighting is not 100-percent guaranteed, but you can possibly see two types of dolphins, common dolphins and bottlenose dolphins. If you do spot them, chances are they’ll be swimming close to your boat in their natural habitat.

Your guided tour ends when your boat reaches the Albufeira Marina and docks.

Lots of fun! Wear a warm layers and a raincoat!

This was a bit of a wild ride in a small power boat out on the open ocean waves. We were crashing over the waves, and getting splashed, soaked, and windblown. It was 60deg F, and despite warm clothes and raincoats, we were chilled by...More
