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

We went on a circa 3 hour dolphin watching trip with them and thought it was a very well run operation. They used a large motorised catamaran which had plenty of shaded space and a large area of netting at the bows which you could...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

We paid 120 euros for a dolphin watching tour, for a family of 4, but when we got on the boat we found we were sharing it with a school group of about 60 teenagers. They were loud, rude, grabbed all the best seats &...More

Be aware, if you book the tour from Troia the catamaran will have started from Setubal and picked up passengers there. As such, there is a very good chance the best seats will be taken. Then, after what may be an underwhelming tour, you may...More

We saw a lot of dolphins. Crew was very friendly. We like the boat type very much: a catamaran, so stable and fast. Great to lie on the front nets just above the water so you can almost touch the dolphins.

We reserved our seats months prior via email, and were reassured to see they had remembered booking. The yacht is clean, relaxed and looks safe. Oh, and yes we saw the dolphins at close proximity
