Full description
The cruise lasts around 5 hours and begins in the morning at the Albufeira Marina. After leaving the Marina, the vessel heads west, along the coast, so you can view the landscaped scenery of the south coast of Portugal. Then head to Nossa Senhora da Rocha where you will land on a beach inaccessible by land. Here you can perform various recreational activities, indulge in refreshing drinks and enjoy a superb BBQ meal made by the crew. Later it's time for dolphin spotting. Return to the main vessel to start searching for the playful and entertaining dolphins. The boat can easily reach 30 miles per hour and travel several miles offshore. The vessel will remain close to the wonderful dolphins for 30 minutes, before returning to the Marina de Albufeira.

Great trip BUT that beach..

The staff were excellent. The information was excellent. The offer is excellent. That beach is a hazard and broke my foot. There’s rocks here there and everywhere and the sea was quite rough (don’t know if it usually is) I planted my foot a wave took me out and now I have a broken foot. I know this isn’t the providers fault but this could happen to anyone in the future so bare this mind. The food and drink when on the beer are good and like I said before the staff are excellent. Even with the injury I thought it was still a very good tour.

Excellent trip...

Had a great time, BBQ amazing- tour guide was lovely and friendly and overall an excellent day out. My only thoughts... no talk about the importance of not littering beaches and the masses of plastic that gets left in the sea every year- it would have been nice to hear about current conservation and then maybe using paper plates and wooden cutlery for the BBQ to promote it? It's so important, especially teaching youngsters (and most adults!) - saw a few people just leaving plastic cups on beach and one on the boat to fly in the sea (I picked them up!) maybe a little education in this area would benefit many tourists. Was great to see the Dolphins and such good organisation - thank you x

It was something different.

I really enjoyed it. I loved the the bbq on the beach. I think it was worth the money because when you get to the beach you have all the equipment to go snorkelling and paddle boarding. The crew were also great. The only negative thing I'd have to say when I booked there was no issue bringing a one yr on but really it wasn't suitable nor would it be for any children under 3 in my opinion but overall it was s great experience!
