Saw common dolphins during this trip. Was pretty amazing, they come up close to the boat! No whales though but was a good experience. *PRO TIP* Remember to take something if you get sea sickness like ginger. A poor girl on the trip got seasick and could not do much afterwards. Also sunscreen and sunglasses will help.

Happy dolphin tour

The tour definitely worth it. The guides were very friendly and were happy to share their knowledge. We saw 2-3 groups of dolphins. We could have looked further and further but at some point the tour was unfortunately over. Any time again.

We had an amazing morning with the two experienced marine biologists on board, lots of knowhow to answer our questions about marine life. We got to see dolphins and had a wonderful time observing them while the guides were collecting their data. At the end we even saw a beautiful turtle, shyly looking out of the water!

We had a great experience with this tour. They had to move times around due to weather but were very communicative about the time changes. We were lucky enough to see a school of common dolphins while we were out. I really appreciated that the guides took the time to clean out any garbage that they found in the water while we were out, it showed that they really cared.

The guides are excellent

Unfortunately we did not see any dolphins but apparently they had seen them the last 35 trips in a row so just bad luck. The two guides were excellent and even stayed out more than 2 extra hours for us trying to find the dolphins and when we did not they offered to take us back out again for free the next day. It was a great experience, we had a hammerhead shark circling the boat so even without the dolphins I would highly recommend, and hopefully you will have better luck than we did. Cheers.

Tremendous tour with ecologically intelligent approach

I made the early morning trip from Albufeira to Faro just to go on this guided wildlife excursion. The tour operator offers a skilled marine biologist to both explain and educate participants on the subject of marine wild life in the Algarve. Although many tours are available in Albufeira, these are more Disneyfied experiences which stress the dolphins and any other creatures in the area. I don’t prefer zoos, and hence I wasn’t interested in a party like atmosphere to go feed and overwhelm the dolphins. This tour left me knowing far more than I did at start. The boat was clean, comfortable and life vests were new and in good working order.

Inoubliable

Expérience inoubliable de pouvoir voir les dauphins de si près dans leur environnement naturel. Pedro et Alfredo, nos 2 guides, ont été super. On voit bien qu’ils sont passionnés et qu’ils connaissent bien leur domaine, tout en respectant la faune marine. Je conseille vivement cette excursion !

Excursion vraiment super ! Nous savions qu’il n’était pas sûr à 100% de voir les dauphins, car ce sont des animaux sauvages. Mais nous avons été patient et quel moment extraordinaire nous avons passé ! Un premier groupe est venu jusqu’au bateau et a passé un bon moment autour de nous, puis un deuxième groupe est resté un peu plus loin, mais tout aussi incroyable a observé. Nos guides ont été super, très agréables et ils ont su tout nous expliquer en français. Nous avons eu des explications sur les différentes espèces, sur leur manière de vivre en groupe… Nous recommandons vivement cette excursion !

Respektvoll und sehr Freundlich

Sehr respektvolle Annäherung an die Tiere und deutliche Ansage die Lebewesen in der Ria zu respektieren auch wenn Anfassen etc manchmal verlockend erscheint. Ich denke es ist sehr schwierig die Gradwanderung von erwartenden Turisten und eben diesem Respekt zu machen . Bei uns ist es auf jeden Fall gelungen wir hatten schon „ aufgegeben „ doch würden wir am deutlich verlängertem Ende der Tour mit einer Delfinschule von mindestens 300 Stück belohnt. Ein wunderbares Erlebnis wir werden das Atmen der Tiere in m uns herum und den glänzend glatten blauen Ozean nicht vergessen und ne kommen gern im Herbst wieder

Una experiencia ideal. A los niños les encantó y los cuatro disfrutamos muchísimo de todas las explicaciones y los detalles que nos contaron sobre la fauna marina de la zona y todo la información que se conoce de la vida de los delfines. Tuvimos la suerte de poder navegar entre 3 familiar enormes de delfines y fue una experiencia increíble. Además las explicaciones nos las dieron en perfecto español.Totalmente recomendable.
