This is an interesting and fun experience. The beaches and caves are really interesting to see from the sea, with nice photo opportunities. A couple of comments - it would be helpful if a smaller life jacket was provided for babies (the one provided to our 10 month old was still too big and we spent time fiddling with this and being concerned about her comfort and whether or not she could see much!); and the first part of the trip seemed a little rushed and difficult to take in all the info from the first few caves/beaches which all come quickly one after another. However, overall it's good value for money and we would happily recommend to others :) One observation for "GetYourGuide" though - the email confirmations sent out include incorrect information regarding the meeting point for this excursion, with the correct information coming from the text messages from the guide. This info is contradictory and confusing - the emails need updating.
The dolphin show was so good, and very moving. The beach and pools looked great, however the water was so cold that we could not go in, even the baby pool was freezing! To top it off, you have to pay 15 euros to have a sun lounger and also pay for lockers which doesn't get refunded. It was such a shame as the dolphins show was great and the Halloween theme was also good. Also you cannot bring a buggy into the pool area as you are forced to walk through an automatic shower before entering which completely soaks you and is also freezing! Top tip for this, the wooden part activates the shower, so if you're quick you can wait for it to stop, stand on the white part (which is small, not big enough for buggy!) and run through afterwards.
The best tour ever. The guide was amazing and positive and very communicative. Everyone at the beach was so helpful and cheerful. They advised us on where to get some great food after the trip and all together the experience was great. We got to see the caves, Filip even explained how tourism affects Portugal and the environment, explained how the caves are created, showed us fossils and places where we can cliff jump.
The place is lovely and wonderful all the animals are a wonderful site to see loved all the shows with them in, I recommend getting pictures with the dolphins and other animals over the dolphin emotions stuff as dolphin emotions is around €300 or more
Very nice staff, super information on how to get there and where to park best. Felt safe the whole trip due to the covid 19 precautions which were carried out perfectly!
