    Booked this trip with my grandkids aged 6 and 4 . It was the best day of their holiday. The 2 hour trip was amazing and seeing the coastline and caves was stunning. Definitely a trip to remember

    We were happy with the cruse it started on the time. We were lucky to see dolphins. The information gives were very clear.

    We booked this activity/excursion based on the number of reviews for its hat we saw on trip advisor/ . We were super disappointed with this activity. The extra one star is for the guides who did a decent job of explaining the spots we visited.
    The whole process is very poorly organized, starting from the chaotic entrance to the marina to find the dream wave desk to getting onto the boat which is extremely frustrating with people cutting ahead of you as there is no organization of first come first serve. Once on the boat you see the map in front of you with about 6-7 areas along the coast pointed out which you think you will be visiting but we only ended up seeing 3 of them. At least they should have told us that we aren’t going to visit them all. I completely understand that dolphins aren’t guaranteed which is normal and we didn’t go in expecting to see any dolphins. However, seeing just three of the spots along the coast was not worth the cost and you could tell by the expression of the people on the boat when the guides said that trip was over, everyone was super shocked and disappointed. Very few people tipped and if they did tip if was minimal. Lastly, I would say that where you are in a pontoon boat you do not get a very close view of the sites. My wife was keen on seeing Benagil which is why we went and really we didn’t get to see much of it at all because the boat didn’t get close enough to truly see it. If you want to truly see Benagil do it by kayak or swim. We paid 35 euros a person and I would say 20 euros a person would be what this was worth.

    I was traveling with my two teenage children when my daughter found this day trip in Albufeira on line.
    The boat trip was amazing with great views of the southern cost of Portugal. The beaches and surrounding gave where absolutely gorgeous. The dolphin encounter was also a special experience that left my daughter very moved to see dolphins swimming freely in their natural environment. Highy recommended!!

    We saw dolphins! I might have been a bit upset if we hadn't but the trip would still have been wonderful. We had Captain Christiano (who if I ever win the lottery I am hiring for my yacht!!) and Gustav! They were both great! Both knowledgeable about those amazing caves and the area and tried so hard to get us to see the dolphins! Gustav kept looking after my little boy (8years old) as I was a bit worried about him going overboard even though Chtistiano reassured me he would be safe and he obviously was! Gustav wrapped him up in a waterproof coat as even though luckily we were sat on the back row (the front must have been wet and cold!) there was still a little spray but we loved it even though it was a bit chilly it was very exciting! Christiano was brilliant with my husband, as my two children and I were sat on the back row of three seats and he was at the back with the captain who was very entertaining!! I would have stayed on board all day going out each time if I could! The early trip was so worth it and especially with these guys as some of the boats I saw looked too big to get in the caves properly and some looked as if there was no leg room you'd be all scrunched up on board! We were very comfortable and being so close to the water and seeing the dolphins so close up was exciting but they are so fast blink and you'll miss them! They are amazing creatures, the dolphins that is!!

    Excellent few hours spent on board . We were lucky enough to see the dolphin which was lovely and the caves are interesting. There are some lovely photo opportunities in the caves. Captain and crew were friendly and looked after us very well. It was great fun.

    Good tour for 2 hours but caves can be quite

    Very interesting but a bit cold and damp

    This was great... big boat that went straight out into the ocean where we saw MANY dolphins!!! They then took us to see some caves, had drinks onboard.. showed us some other UNESCO shoreline before going back. highly recommend!
