3-Hour Kayak Tour In Arrábida Reviewed by: Philippe
"Wir hatten 2-3 tolle Stunden, bei bestem Wetter und haben jede Menge Delphine aus nächster Nähe sehen können, obwohl die See außerhalb der Bucht etwas rau war. Danach haben wir noch einen kurzen Stop am Praia de Comenda gemacht und konnten vom Boot springen und schwimmen."
"Adoramos a experiência. Mesmo com uma criança de dois anos, foi espetacular, ela adorou, nem queria sair da água. Excelentes condições. E pessoal bem disposto."
"O passeio foi espetacular. Excelente ambiente a bordo, o respeito pelos golfinhos, as paisagens, o passeio pela costa com as informações, os mergulhos... 5 estrelas. Vamos voltar."
"Wir waren mit dem Dolphinbay Team ca. 2,5h mit dem Boot unterwegs. An einem Montag im September waren nicht viele Leute auf dem Boot und wir hatten sehr viel Platz und Privatsphäre. Die Delfine konnten wir schon nach kurzer Zeit sehen. Wir näherten uns langsam der Gruppe und blieben ca. 30 Minuten in unmittelbarer Nähe. Länger ist es den Betreibern nicht gestattet, um die Tiere in ihrer Natur zu schützen. Wir haben super Bilder machen können und waren total von den Tieren beeindruckt. Für uns wurde vieles auf Englisch übersetzt, teilweise im persönlichen Gespräch. Das Team gab sich sehr viel Mühe. Wir konnten später noch ins Wasser springen und um das Boot schwimmen. Außerdem gab es noch eine Kleinigkeit zu trinken serviert. Insgesamt war das eine der coolsten Touren, die wir je gemacht haben. Es war einfach eine geniale Erfahrung und ich kann jedem, der in der Nähe ist, nur empfehlen, mit Dolphin Bay raus zu fahren."
