What People Are Saying

★★★★★
"We went on the boat trip with our daughter (8years) & baby (8months). The crew allowed us to take the car seat on the boat which turned out to be really handy. The tour was 2,5 hours which gave us plenty of time watching the dolphins and visiting the caves. The crew was really entertaining and shared a lot of knowledge about the surrounding area. The small size and fast speed of the boat was one of the highlights as well!! Thank you for an amazing start of our vacation!! Absolutely recommended!!"

"Great tour aside the albufeira coastline. The small boat enters a lot of small cave's, all with their own litle storyline. Tour was in English and French. Afterwards we went looking for Dolphins but we where one of the 20% unlucky ones who didn't see any. And because of that the captain treat us with a rolercost boat trip at the end. Anyway it was a great experience and I could advise this to everyone."
