Free transport from Pick Up places. We took the Dolphins & Caves experience. It took 45 minutes until we were near the Dolphins. A lot of them. Afterwards we returned to the coast for observing the Caves & Coastline. We have to wait for the transport tree hours so we took a taxi back to the town. The cost was... More

On the last day of our holiday to the Algarve, we decided to spend the last of our holiday pennies on a boat trip. The Algar experience offered 3 trips. The cheapest was a 3 hr trip on a catamaran along the coastline to see the Algarves famous sea caves, the mid range trip included a barbecue on a beach,... More

We went on the Dolphin and BBQ trip on 15th October. We had a fantastic day. We travelled quite far out to sea where we saw quite a few dolphins. Then we came back and toured around the caves before getting off at a lovely beach where the staff had prepared a lovely BBQ. We spent some time on the... More

We went on the three hour coast and caves boat trip out of albufeira. An absolutely brilliant trip. Staff were amazing and highly entertaining. Full of local knowledge. There was a bar on board and a swimming stop. Highly recommended!

Fabulous day out. Initially it seemed expensive but when one considers what you get for your money it is really good value. Pick up near our apartment to Marina. Paid extra to sit on upper deck which takes 14. Glad we did. The drawback is trying to access the free bar and sandwiches on the lower deck on a moving... More

My husband and I booked the 'guaranteed' dolphins and caves tour for 35 euros each and we won't be experiencing it again. The woman that took our booking informed us that the conditions at sea were 'choppy' and that we would receive a mac to keep us dry with the sea. I informed the staff that I have eczema which...

I have come back from the dolphins and caves tour, and unfortunately due to the conditions of the water, we saw neither caves nor dolphins. Obviously this isn't ideal for 35€ each and the choppiest boat ride in the ocean which left everyone drenched and some people very sick, however the tour guide was apologetic and informed us that we...

We went when conditions were choppy -no other company went out that day and we should have never been sold tickets! Being on a roller coaster ride for 2 hours would have probably been more fun than being on that boat. We were drenched, soaked, frozen and jolted for 2 hours. I was terrified for my life and my family.... More
