In all honesty I felt pretty sea sick on this trip particularly when bobbing on the water watching the dolphins. That said the guide and driver were amazing throughout and couldn’t have been more supportive to make me and the rest of the passengers feel as comfortable as possible. Cannot fault their help and care and would recommend this company to anyone wanting a nice little trip out on the sea in Albufeira x

Great experience! Don't go if it's too windy. The first time we couldn't see anything because the sea was too rough. The second time was very nice. Spotted dolphins and went into the caves.

Very pleasant outing. As expected we saw dolphins, the discovery of the coast is magnificent, magical, as on the postcards. Careful companion.

Super experience unfortunately the dolphins wanted to show themselves less up close. But that didn't make it any less fun.

Even though we didn't see the dolphins it was great! Thanks!
