We had an absolutely fantastic time on the dolphin spotting tour, seeing lots of dolphins both from a distance and up close - it’s quite a buzz when you see the first one jump out the water! Would recommend getting the morning trip - parking around Fuzeta marina can be very difficult during the day but first thing you shouldn’t have any problem finding a space. It isn’t very clear where to get on the boat but once the other travellers arrive and there’s a group waiting you will collectively work it out!The Portuguese have a relaxed attitude to timekeeping so don’t be surprised if nothing appears to be happening at the start time and you don’t end up departing until after the stated time - once you’re on the water this won’t matter one bit as you get a good 2-2.5 hours on the water. It can be bit choppy out on the ocean so bring your sea legs. We’ve been on many boat trips and this was easily one of the best we’ve done - highly recommended!

Enjoyable sea trip in comfortable launch but it's all about the WOW moment when you first see the dolphins. For us it happened about 2 hours in. The dolphins seem to enjoy the attention and race alongside, sometimes diving under the boat and coming up on the other side. They like to swim in pairs leaping and diving together and tricking you by resurfacing somewhere new. Fantastic finale!

Leuke vlotte gidsen die echt hun best deden dolfijnen te spotten! Wij hadden geluk en hebben twee dolfijnen groepen gezien die speelden om de boot en nog een extra sightseeing van de Ria Formosa. Verder een fijne boot (niet groot) met schaduwdoek. Al met al zeker de prijs waard.
