In all honesty I felt pretty sea sick on this trip particularly when bobbing on the water watching the dolphins. That said the guide and driver were amazing throughout and couldn’t have been more supportive to make me and the rest of the passengers feel as comfortable as possible. Cannot fault their help and care and would recommend this company to anyone wanting a nice little trip out on the sea in Albufeira x

Very careful. Very cool that it's a smaller group of customers and not a big party boat. The waves are of course more noticeable in such a small boat, which was a lot of fun especially for the children. The little boat also gets better and more into the caves.

This trip is well worth the money. My partner and I went with friends. We have a lovely few hours seeing wild dolphins and exploring caves. We even stopped to jump into the sea (those of us that wanted to) Thank you so much to Christiano and the team for the experience
