Superb experience: we watched the dolphins with our 4-year-old son and it was magnificent; thank you to our crew for having done everything for :) A little less interesting: the caves where I found that it was too touristy and that we passed a little quickly; but we understand the timing, the fact that there are a lot of people and access is limited (depending on the size of the boat). But overall the trip was great! Thanks to our guide Sam for all the explanations in French

The experience was great. We left the port of Albufeira towards the high seas, we were lucky and we could see the dolphins, it was very beautiful. We spent a few minutes with the dolphins, they let us record a lot and then we went to the caves, first Benagil and then they showed us the rest and some coves along the coast. We couldn't swim because we spent a lot of time looking for the dolphins. The crew was very friendly. I recommend it, it is a very cool experience

Attentive and friendly staff. The tour consists of a speedboat with two columns of seats of 3 and 3 people/row. First you go looking for dolphins and then they take you through the caves. The guide spoke Portuguese, French, Spanish and English. To search for dolphins they work together with other companies and whoever finds dolphins advises. We were lucky to find them, however it is a matter of luck. As for the caves and coves, it takes you to Benagil (and they get inside), Marinha, submarine, praia secreta.... Finally they anchor and offer the option of bathing to whoever wants it. Highly recommended. PS: I recommend a lot of sunscreen and bring something to keep warm.
