Your 5 hours catamaran tour begins in the morning at the Albufeira Marina and will take you to enjoy the incredible sensation of cruising in the open sea to the discovery and observation of dolphins. At lunchtime we will make a stop at a secluded beach to enjoy a barbecue prepared by the crew. You will also visit some of the most emblematic caves and rocky formations of this region of the Algarve coast.

This activity is usually held on the Belize Third Catamaran, the first in the Algarve with these characteristics, built specifically for the observation of cetaceans and equipped with free wifi.

After leaving the Marina the vessel heads to West, always along the coast, to make known the landscaped scenery of the south coast of Portugal, to the area of Nossa Senhora da Rocha
and Carvoeiro. The captain will move the catamaran to a beach where all passengers will move to a our support vessels and disembark. Here the crew will prepare your lunch and you will have a free time to swim, relax and use our snorkel and SUP equipment.

While we are on the beach, enjoy a delicious barbecue and the open bar. The lunch menu includes grilled shrimp, grilled fish, mixed meat, potato chips, Algarve salad, seasonal fruit. Also, enjoy the open bar of beer, sangria, soft drinks, water, red wine and white wine. Other alcoholic drinks will be available for purchase.

Later the passengers return to the main vessel to start searching for dolphins. The boat can easily reach 30 miles per hour and distance to several miles offshore in this fun adventure. The vessel will remain really close to these fantastic creatures, and there will be enough time to watch and take pictures of the dolphins. After that, we will return to the Marina de Albufeira.

Great trip BUT that beach..

★★★★ Reviewed by Callum on 2019-07-23
The staff were excellent. The information was excellent. The offer is excellent. That beach is a hazard and broke my foot. There’s rocks here there and everywhere and the sea was quite rough (don’t know if it usually is) I planted my foot a wave took me out and now I have a broken foot. I know this isn’t the providers fault but this could happen to anyone in the future so bare this mind. The food and drink when on the beer are good and like I said before the staff are excellent. Even with the injury I thought it was still a very good tour.

Une activé à pas manqué juste exceptionnel
