Dolphin Watching and Caves Cruise
US$35.35
Overview
Get to know the Algarve Coast with a 2.5-hour dolphin watching cruise. Take in the views and feel the beautiful ocean breeze as you look out for playful pods of dolphins. Visit the selection of caves that are quintessential to the Algarve and even stop for a swim on one of the gorgeous beaches.
What to Expect
We leave everyday from Albufeira Marina towards the west part of the Algarve coastline ending in the area of Carvoeiro. On a 2h30 hour tour you will see the amazing coastline, caves and beaches, with a stop for a swim. After reaching the last cave, we set course to deep waters in search of the dolphins, and at the same time we can appreciate the spectacular panoramic view of the Algarve coastline.
We ensure a safe ride, by the maximum safety standards and by having all licenses and insurance up to date as well as having qualified skippers on board. We will provide life jackets . 
We recommend that you bring sunblock and a hat.

Thrilling experience

We unwittingly chose this tour of the caves and dolphin watching because it was a sunset tour and we didn't want to be having to get up early from a night on the strip the day before... We did not realise until the boat got...More

Not for little ones

This tour and boat is not a good idea for little ones. You can book infants from 1 year old but my opinion is that this activity should be advertised only for 3 or 4 yr olds onwards. The seats are not very comfortable and...More
