It has been a fantastic excursion. The weather was with us. And we could see the dolphins very close. The shades of the water in the cave area, beautiful. To put a but, too many people in the cave area, it seemed like a party with boats, canoes, kayaks, etc.

Really good trip. This was the first time that we have been out to try to see dolphins, but this is first time we have seen any. There were over 100 in the pod and we spent about 15 minutes with them before going to the famous Algarvian caves. The commentary by Katrina was very helpful and amusing. Well worth the money.

The staff were very helpful and friendly. And the guides gave plenty of information about the coastline and kept things interesting. Seeing the dolphins in their natural habitat was lovely however a bit difficult to see at times since they show up in different areas for brief moments at a time. We also had a chance to go for a swim in the ocean so be sure to bring a swimsuit. As well as a jacket since the wind when the boat is going at faster rates can get a bit chilly.
