From Portimão:Dolphin Watch & Lagos Coastline with Biologist

From Portimão:Dolphin Watch & Lagos Coastline with Biologist

Enjoy 2h30 of a unique boat tour that combines two experiences in one: responsible dolphin watching and seeing the Lagos coastline and the famous Ponta da Piedade headland. On the way back, and if sea conditions are favourable, enjoy a stop for swimming. Departing from Portimão you will navigate into the open sea in search of wild dolphins then towards the West to Ponta da Piedade headland. Count on a captain with many years of experience and biologists who share a profound love for nature and marine life. As education plays a vital role in conservation, count on valuable information about the marine animals, their behaviour, and the marine environment. The most sighted species of Dolphins are: **Common Dolphin** (*Delphinus delphis*) - Conservation Status: Near Threatened* **Bottlenose Dolphin** (*Tursiops truncatus*) - Conservation Status: Least Concern* (*Red List of Mammals of Continental Portugal, 2022) Algarve waters teem with biodiversity, and therefore other marine species such as seabirds and jellyfish will also be spotted. (Sharks, whales, and turtles are very rare, so we don't even mention them!) Be ready for a marine adventure and be open to an unpredictable, and unique experience: The magic of observing dolphins and other marine creatures in their natural environment is thrilling and indescribable. But it is important to understand that these encounters are with unpredictable wild animals that roam freely in their natural habitat, the Atlantic Ocean. They cannot be summoned or controlled. Also, sea conditions, weather, and other natural factors can affect visibility and the likelihood of sightings. Sometimes, dolphins may be farther away, less active, or unsocial. With great team effort and experience, we have a 98% success rate in finding them. Then you will have the opportunity to learn about Ponta da Piedade, translated to "Point of Pity", particularly famous for high cliffs and intricate rock formations that have been sculpted by erosion over time. It is a natural wonder that holds a valuable set of historical, scenic and geological heritage and has a lighthouse that adds to its charm. Admire the beauty of the coastline of Lagos, characterized by a mix of rugged cliffs, sandy coves, clear turquoise waters, sea arches and marvellous beaches. The golden cliffs contrast beautifully with the deep blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean, creating a breathtaking and photogenic landscape. On the way back to Portimão, and if sea and weather conditions are favourable, we stop at a beautiful and tranquil bay for you to enjoy the landscape, socialize and swim in the crystalline waters of the Algarve!

Wonderful day , absolutely fantastic experience, credit to Nick and Chris who were amazing hosts and full of all local knowledge, having been on other boats trips these two boys accompanied by a beautiful boat are the clear winners , from the beautifuls coastal views , and the added bonus of dolphin sighting (and the lads stopped the boat and gave us an extra few mins to enjoy) made our trip .Highly recommend a trip , you won’t be disappointed 😎

Very nice activity with great guides, very friendly. Passage through the small caves by canoe and explanations given by the guide. Really very nice especially since most of the caves are only accessible by the ocean. I recommend

The driver was very informative and great fun. I was there with my elderly mother and he was lovely with her and made sure she was OK whilst I was taking photos etc. Recommended!

Beautiful trip, very friendly staff and on the way back you were towed behind the boat so you didn't have to paddle back.

Interactive and fun ! Our guide Maya was excellent.
