Dolphin Watching

*Summer (1st June to 31st October)

  Tour Details:
  It is a very special experience to closely observe marine mammals in their natural environment. In the waters of the Algarve you can find a big variety of animal species. Particularly often we sight the Common  and Bottlenose Dolphin, but several times other species which are catalogued below with photos from our Mrine Biologist but not the underwater pictures. 

   We set sea on a wildlife boat trip to encounter wild animals so our ratings are over 90% which is really good. 
   Important: Please don’t forget to bring sunscreen, camera and comfortable, weather appropriate clothing.
