We booked ahead by email. The boat was busy, but still lots of space. Fantastic boat, great staff, saw bottle nose and common dolphins and had a great time.

The trip was very enjoyable and well organised. The catamaran this company use is very spacious and comfortable. The boat was not over packed like some of the other tours we saw. We spent quite a while looking for the dolphins (golfinhos), but when we...More

We really enjoyed the trip. We were lucky to see quite a few dolphins. It was just a cold and windy day. It we were really freezing after a while on the boat.

This company operates a giant catamaran (seating 50 persons). Our group was 17 so we had a marvelous 360° view. The ship allows you to spot and photograph the surfacing dolphins really up close. Staff is super friendly, the skipper a pro. He quickly locates...More

It was a thrill seeing the dolphins up close to the boat, they were everywhere! The boat was comfortable and the atmosphere pleasant. Our skipper didn't tell anything about the dolphins, I expected more personal information. He just sailed us there and back, no contact...More

We actually booked a full day trip through a third party, not realizing it would actually be cheaper to book direct. Definitely book through Vertigem Azul rather than the portugal-sport-and-adventure website. The catamaran was fully booked so we were put on the small RIB which...More
