One of the larger boats to go exploring the Algarve coast. There was plenty of room to move around to get the best photos. The captain managed to get very close to the caves. We didn't see any dolphins but that didn't spoil the trip.

Went with our 2 year old child and had the most amazing day and experience. We were lucky enough to see lots of dolphins. Went into some caves which we weren’t expecting and it was stunning. Highly recommend this tour. The staff were so friendly

I liked that you could sit back and watch the dolphins and the boat had a bar. it also took you on a panoramic tour of the coastline with a short stop to jump in if you wish to do so.

The Dolphins & Costaline tour on the Ocean Spirit Catamaran does stop for a swim whenever the sea allows it and depending on the time spent searching for dolphins which is one of the focus of the tour. Hope this helps
