  • 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.

Very good experience, the guides were super nice. A little quick observation of dolphins but at the same time it is not a zoo. Benagile cave a little crowded but the rest of the coast was quieter and more pleasant. Small group. It moves a little on the zodiac according to the waves.

We came across Rui and his semi-rigid boat, we were 10 people, he was adorable and we had the chance to see schools of dolphins thanks to his perseverance ... thank you for these magical moments ... Not to mention the caves majestic

Pleasant walk, interesting discovery of the cellars, too bad not really watching the dolphins but it is not the fault of the crew… it is a fluke.
