  • Encounter dolphins in their natural environment
  • See the spectacular caves and rock formations of Portugal's southern coast
  • Travel on a rigid inflatable boat (RIB) so you can enter the caves
Full description
Hop in a RIB — a rigid inflatable boat — and enjoy two experiences along the coast of the Algarve. Watch dolphins in their natural environment. The most common species you'll find are the common dolphin and the bottlenose dolphin. Also, visit the stunning caves and other rock formations in the region, between Albufeira Marina and the famous Benagil cave or “Algar de Benagil”. Being aboard a RIB, you're guaranteed to be able to enter parts of the cave, unlike a tour in a catamaran.

Super nice walk, remember to take a sweater, some people were frozen! on the other hand, they go a little fast for young children and the oldest .... the guides are really super nice but the end of the ride was frankly dangerous with their acrobatics in the boat to amuse the gallery, and yet we are used to it of the boat and we are not cowards!

Very rewarding tour. It was two and a half hours of pure fun and delight. I recommend the tour. And I would like to take advantage of and thank the tourist guide who accompanied us and was very helpful, explaining every point we saw, such as beaches and caves. Congratulations to the team.

Excellent boat trip, I was worried about the small boat, but it was sturdy and really fun and i’m so glad we were in a smaller group than one of the bigger boats. The hosts were excellent and it was the perfect amount of time to see dolphins and go in the caves.
