We had a wonderful boat tour around different caves & got the chance to see the dolphins at the beginning of our tour. The guides really did their best for us to see the dolphins as they are not in captivity.

Very nice tour along the coast west of Vilamoura. Opportunity to get closer to the cliffs with a small dinghy and a short swim is also possible. Recommendable.

Amazing experience and the team that made you feel welcome and made this experience truely unforgettable
