Me and my daughter are frequent visitors in beautiful Lisboa but this was our first time looking for dolphins. We loved it! Our guide spoke several languages and easily switched from one to another, and he was very helpful and gave us a lot of interesting info about the animals at sea.

we had really an amazing day. we would have never imagined to see sooo many dolphins and so close to our boat. the pcean was clear and calm and we could not enjoy it more. The staff was epic too and did everything possible to make the experience even better. When gping back, they stopped right in front of the Belem Tower, which was epic to see from the river.

On a warm September day in Lisbon, I yearned for the moisture of the Portuguese seas. Luckily enough, I booked this tour and was whisked away into the Atlantic by Portugal's finest skipper. As we began our nautical sojourn in search for mythical dolphins, I felt both a sense of wonder and peace. While I understood that there would be no guarantees of the elusive sea creatures, the feeling of the cool breeze swept all worries from my soul. Soon enough, our weathered admiral set a course for a reliable gathering spot of dolphins. Cast your eyes to the east, my dear boy! There she blows! I never doubted our fearless leader, for he would not deny us our destiny, our true porpoise(pun lol) in life. 10/10, this is a no brainer.
