Caves and Dolphin Watching Cruise from Albufeira
From US$41.23
Overview
Avoid the hassle of renting and navigating a boat in unfamiliar territory on a stress-free dolphin watching cruise from Albufeira. A small, motorized boat grants you access to the hard-to-reach caves and grottoes that line Albufeira's coast, while a guide transports you to places with increased dolphin activity. A great option for families, this experience combines education with entertainment.
What to Expect
Meet at Albufeira Marina a little before your departure time. Check in, hop aboard a small boat, and get ready to cruise the Atlantic Ocean.

Once you get out on the water, relax as your guide takes you to areas to see views of the nearby sandstone cliffs. Head toward Carvoeiro Beach, and get the chance to explore the caves.

Afterward, your guide knows some of the best places to spot dolphins. A sighting is not 100-percent guaranteed, but you can possibly see two types of dolphins, common dolphins and bottlenose dolphins. If you do spot them, chances are they’ll be swimming close to your boat in their natural habitat.

Your guided tour ends when your boat reaches the Albufeira Marina and docks.

Disappointing trip

The boat ran on high speed with the wind blowing in your face, if you like this then the trip will be good for you. The caves and the beaches were amazing but we spent very little time to see them. Most of the time...More

Well worth it...

An excellent excursion for the family not just to see the dolphins (which we did) but also to see the spectacular coastline and explore some of the caves and secluded bays. We headed out to find the dolphins first as some had been spotted and...More

Undecided about this.

I would mostly recommend this trip. At first we spent almost an hour travelling out at sea to find dolphins, when we finally found them the boat turned round and headed to the coast to look at caves. When I say we found dolphins we...More

Hello Gooner1979, Thank-you for your review and your kind words. As you can understand the Dolphins are in their natural habitat, a very large ocean, at times it can be very difficult to find them making a long journey in their search. When found they...More

I don't have any idea if the agency have any restriction but what I have seen it might be difficult for very young children such as 3yrs. Worth checking with the agency
