It was a great adventure!!! We spotted the Dolphins in their natural habitat and it was a very happy moment for us as a parents and for our 5 years old daughter. We also saw the Bengali caves which are amazing and we finished the activity with a taste to more.

Great flawless organization. We were coming from another city 1 hr away and had no issues finding the place. Grear cafe’ with discounts for customers attending the tour. Boat (Dreamer) was clean and comfortable. The crew/guides were amazing. Attentive with children and very helpful. But most importantly the excursion itself was really worth it!! We saw dolphins very close (I guess we were lucky but also they know what they are doing as they keep contact with other boats to check the right places). Benagil cave is beautiful and so other caves the boat goes through! If you are on holiday here it’s a must Go!

The dolphins were cute and fun. This was my partner and I’s best day of the whole holiday so I would wholly recommend
