What You Can Expect

Dolphin Watching and Caves Trip from Albufeira

Grottoes and Caves

Make your way to the Albufeira Marina, where you'll meet your guide and group at your chosen departure time. Departures are available at 9:30am, 12pm and 2:30pm. After a short orientation, board one of the rigid inflatable boats (known as RIBs) and set off along the coast of Algarve, toward Alfanzina's Beacon. Keep your camera handy for capturing scenic views of the beaches and sea caves during the boat ride. 

Partway to the beacon, the boat will make a short stop so you can take a dip in the Atlantic's refreshing waters. Then, head out to deeper water to search for the area's resident dolphins, who can often be seen swimming and jumping in the area. Please note: dolphin sightings are not guaranteed, but are frequent. 

Return to the Albufeira Marina at the conclusion of your tour.

It was so great!!!! We have seen the coast of Portugal from the sea. Also we went by boat into the caves, which was great. The dip in the ocean was cold but also an experience. Then we went to open sea to look for dolphins. We found them and could see them from very close. The dolphins were swimming with our boat. I'll never forget this trip and really can recommend it.

Es war einfach herrlich und schön! Wir hatten auch das Glück, einige Delfine aus nächster Nähe zu sehen. Kann ich wärmstens empfehlen.

It was perfect! I can recommend it.

Fantastic time - weather was perfect, staff friendly and helpful. Beautiful views of the coastline, then, after a bit of searching, we found dolphins and stayed with them as they swam round and under the boat.

The booking process and finding of the venue was very easy. Plenty of cafes nearby to stop at for refreshments and free parking. Guide on the boat was qualified marine biologist so we got an education on route too. Boat ride was really fun. A little wet but at 30 degrees sunshine, very refreshing. Waterproof jackets provided for those who don't want to get wet.
We did the 2.30pm slot and unfortunately didn't see any dolphins. I don't know if any of the other timed slots would have given us a better chance to spot dolphins feeding. A shame but still a really good 2.5 hours of fun.
