What people are saying about Lagoa

We have seen the dolphins and caves with a short history behind the caves. Tour was planned for 2.5hrs initially, however we were searching for the dolphins 1h15mins before we get message from another bout who found them - we immediately have turned to that way and were lucky to see them. very cooperative boat drivers - thank you for that. then we spent around 15 minutes with dolphins and in order to respect their privacy - turned to the caves and left the place. it is awesome experience to see the real nature and it's life. overall tour took 2h45min and definitely worth the money we've paid. highly recommended!

Dolphins located as soon as we left the harbour...PERFECT. The tour of the Bengil caves/coast was immense. English speaking guide was informative overall very good. Would recommend this tour if your in the Algarve. November 25th 2022.

The combination makes the tour an experience in any case. Very good organization, pleasant guide, good size of the boat. That we actually saw dolphins was gigantic.

Seeing the Algarve coast from a boat was very impressive. All those little beaches and caves. Even without the dolphin watching the price would be reasonable!!!

Good ride down the coast and caves, the crew managed to find the dolphins for us. Great trip.
