What people are saying about Cascais

Super nice team At first some information about the animals will be announced. The speedboat ride to the dolphins was super cool. We found a few dolphins or groups (even large ones!) The organizers know what they are doing and also pay attention to the animals in terms of animal welfare. A really great experience that you should have made (for a reasonable price) On the way back to the port we passed a few sights of Belem, something was also explained about this.

Great Tour! The guides were super nice, we saw alot of dolphins and on the way back the guides showed us some monuments and explained their meanings. Before arriving at the port, the guides speeded the boat, which was a perfect ending for a great tour.

It was very fun! Definitely recommend this sunset cruise with Frederico and Carlos! Gave us information about the history of places we saw and tasty beverages. Hi

beautiful day, great, modern, clean boat, friendly and competent crew, and lots of fish. Can't be beat
