We leave everyday from Albufeira Marina towards the west part of the Algarve coastline ending in the area of Carvoeiro. On a 2h30 hour tour you will see the amazing coastline, caves and beaches, with a stop for a swim. After reaching the last cave, we set course to deep waters in search of the dolphins, and at the same time we can appreciate the spectacular panoramic view of the Algarve coastline.
We ensure a safe ride, by the maximum safety standards and by having all licenses and insurance up to date as well as having qualified skippers on board. We will provide life jackets . 
We recommend that you bring sunblock and a hat.

A good experience but slight frustrations.

The trip was good - we got to see dolphins which was amazing. I also liked that the captain asked everyone onboard to properly experience the dolphins and watch them without using their phones for the 5 minutes, to properly enjoy the moment. But, I...More

Horrendous Trip

The Captain met us all at the gate to the jetty, late, where all the other trips were meeting their crews. Upon opening the gate he growled that we were not “behind the flag”. The flag was 50m away in the middle of a yard....More
