Don't hesitate, just book! Even if you wouldn't see a dolphin, it is fantastic to sail by boat. It took a while but with some patience you will get far, after 2 hours we saw the dolphins. First one, then the whole club! It really enriched our trip in Portugal!

It was a fantastic trip by boat. Spotted a lot of dolphins and a nice enthusiastic guide. She knew a lot to tell and was open to all questions. Nice to see how someone does her job as a guide with such enthusiasm. Really great! A must for anyone who is in Lisbon!

A nice experience. No dolphins were found in the river so we went out to sea. The organizers are very nice and competent. They are definitely trying to find dolphins. The welfare of the animals is in the foreground. They keep their distance and do not harass the animals. It is up to you whether you come to the boat or not. We were definitely lucky and saw dolphins. Take part! Even if there are no dolphins to see it is a great adventure :)
