It is the third year that we take a dolphin watch tour with Cape Cruiser and its a third hit. Interestingly enough, we have each year seen partially different mammals. This year we were lucky to see both common dolphins, but also to observe a big group of Russo Dolphins (they look like small killer whales). We also enjoyed to... More

Went on this boat with friendly crew and marine biologist. We cruised around looking for dolphins and just when I thought we were unlucky swoosh a pod with young appeared showing off and frolicking it was fantastic" The crew stayed out longer do we could enjoy the sight. Recommend this trip you will enjoy the crew are so helpful.

Thank you so much for your words. We always try to adapt our trips according with the sightings and with the time that we have left. We stay longer because sometimes the dolphins take a little more time to be found. But when they are found it is amazing, right? Hope to see you again to come to enjoy this... More

The whole trip with Cape Cruiser was a delight, very professional guides who cared deeply about the environment. My wife had a injured shoulder and they made sure seating was correct and showed real consideration. Well worth taking the dolphin watching trip, highly recommended

Had a great morning watching dolphins off Sagres today. Excellent guide and skipper with perfect English too. Saw bottlenose dolphins and harbour porpoise too. And the boat trip itself is fun.

Hello Chris. Very glad that you enjoyed our tour. And thank you for your review. So lucky that you could see well the Harbour porpoise (Phocoena phocoena) because they are so shy and difficult to see. But the Bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) are always easier to spot and to be seen by our passengers. Thank you for choosing us and... More

this was a truly magical encounter with dolphins and a hammerhead shark in the majestic surroundings of the coast off Cape St Vincent. The boat itself is so close to the water it makes you feel very close to nature and the commentary and briefing were excellent and informed. Would highly recommend. Obrigado! Christine and Hussein

We had a brilliant time on the boat trip and saw some amazing dolphins swimming and jumping alongside the boat. We were accompanied by a marine biologist that talked to us about the mammals in an interesting and engaging manner. The skipper of the boat was very personable and helped make the trip very enjoyable. Our son is 2.5 and... More

Deborah was very welcoming and informative in several languages which made a good start to the trip. The ride out was fun and the pod of Common Dolphins that interacted with the boat was everything we had hoped it would be.

We joined a dolphin spotting trip at the end of an April 2016. We haven't seen any dolphins but we had it was very informative and we had a great time. Remember to bring warm clothes, wind jacket and a warm hat. Boat goes really fast and a wind can be really strong even during a sunny day.

Thank you so muchfor your review. Honestly and in my one opinion it was one of the best comments that we could wait, because many person don`t realize how unexpected the sea life is and it`s something that nobody can crontrol, although our sucess sightings rate it`s between 80 and 100%. Thank you for having fun and enjoyed the tour... More

A trip out into the wild, seeing wild animals in their habitat, the sea! Great views of dolphins and seabirds, and a Minke whale made a brief appearance (just for me, unfortunately for everyone else). Will do it again!
