Really experienced and knowledgeable crew. Glad we went for a rib, as opposed to a big boat, much more fun for the kids, and only us on the boat. We started out on the trip itinerary, but the captain heard of some dolphin sightings, so checked if we were happy to run there as quickly as possible - queue some great fun flying across the waves to find a large pod of dolphins. First ones there :) The family were so excited to see the dolphins, well worth the cost of the experience. A very knowledgeable Marine Biologist as host rounded out a fantastic experience. Thanks so much!

An amazing tour with a great guide who was a marine biologist that really knew what he was talking about! We went to all the caves in and around Benagil (including a secret additional one!), had an informative couple of hours, saw some amazing dolphins and had an all around great time. We went on two day trips during our time in Vilamoura and this one was the best by far!

The trip is amazing, I would easily recommend this to anyone. The crew were so helpful and informative and the sights are truly stunning. If you get the chance sit on the back of the boat as you have more freedom and you can sit on the edge whilst drinking your favourite beverage and taking in the sights.

Staff were great really helpful & knowledgeable. Never thought we would see so many dolphins (25 to 30) brilliant trip. Ian, Shirley, Bradley & Calvin
