What people are saying about Ferragudo
Did the tour two days in a row because we were so excited. The team is super nice and experienced and very careful that the animals are in the foreground. The trip with the boat was great fun and we always had great dolphin watching every time again
Very nice guides and a very personal tour, no mass tourism clearance. A lot was said about the caves and there were many free bathing beach recommendations. A refreshing excursion, especially on hot days.
Excellent, the girl guide knows a lot about the subject and is always giving interesting facts. The man at the kiosk is terrific. We had a fantastic experience and we could almost touch the dolphins.
It was fantastic after a long search they found a group of dolphins. I recommend everyone to book with them . They keep looking until they see dolphins even though they are back too late.
Everything spectacular from the guide explaining everything very well, the captain super skillful and confident, the breathtaking landscapes, all the caves have a natural beauty
