Dolphins in Albufeira

An excellent trip aided by a really fun tour guide. Lots of dolphins to see without disturbing them, also saw a Peregrine Falcon in one of the caves.

great trip found dolphins just as we left the port, you would have seen them from the beach that day, but not as close up, the caves were worth a visit, and still not sure how we made it in and out without touching the sides

The views are amazing. Do not forget to take your camera. The catamaran take you to see the dolphins but on the way you will see fantastic stone formation on the sea shore and caves.

We did the Dolphins and coastal caves tour which is organised from the little stand in the square of the old town when you go down the escalators (Blue Dolphins) It was 35 euros for a two hour excursion. The staff are all very friendly, they whisked us to the marina in their cars then we boarded a tiny speed... More

Went on the trip yesterday, and have to say the "terrible" reviews are very unfounded! Arrived to check in and got a useful bag and two bottles of water. Went to the modern boat and off we went. Interesting going past all the caves and due to the size of the boat were never going to go in them! Then... More

Great day out. We started the trip slightly delayed due to a previous boat. This could have been better communicated to the group, however this is forgiven since we were able to find dolphins which was magical to see. The cave exploring itself was good although it would have been nicer to have paused for slightly longer to fully appreciate... More

An excellent day had. Great to see the dolphins in their natural habitat. Wrap up if you get cold easily though as it's windy.

Excellent guide, described and named everything we saw, mainly caves, which were magnificent. We were directed from the caves by radio to where the Dolphins were, and we were not disappointed, they were wonderful .

This was an amazing morning out, going up the coast taking in many caves and beautiful beaches. The highlight was going far out to sea and see the stunning sight of Dolphins swimming freely in the Ocean was totally breathtaking!!!! And my word can that speedboat move!??
