"This boat tour was one of the highlights in my entire life! The coastline of the Algarve is so beautiful. I didnt expect to see dolphins but we saw them directly in front of our boat. It was very peaceful which was the most important thing for me. I think the dolphins flirted with us and did tricks;) I cried with joy afterwards and save this memory as a very special one :) This tour is a must when you travel to the Algarve "
