What people are saying about Albufeira

The experience exceeded all my expectations: the activity was exceptional, the weather was perfect and we even had the chance to spot dolphins, despite the guide's warnings that this might not be the case. I highly recommend this experience. I'm convinced that late May or early June would be even more amazing. Don't forget to take a sweater because the boat goes at a good pace and it can be a little chilly. It's a unique experience to live at least once in your life, especially since the landscape is breathtaking. Thank you very much for this unforgettable experience.

We booked the activity online a day before and it was a smooth booking. We arrived at the check in area early and was seated on the boat by pass 3PM (our chose activity time). The guides were super nice and was always telling us what we are seeing. It was great to see the view of the coast from the sea. It was too bad we were not able to enter the Benagil caves and see dolphins (which they do not guarantee of course). Nonetheless, we had a great time and enjoyed it. PS. Bring jacket because it can be cold especially if you're doing this before summer.

it's amazing you have to do its amazing the coastline it's stunning , captain is a fantastic careful driver , they look after you worth taking a coat waterproof if you sit at the front you'll get soaked , but all part of the fun best 3 hours of the week they will offer you a coat if you forget thank you dreamwave
