Experience a must-do activity for anyone visiting the Algarve with this 1.5-hour dolphin-watching safari. Join an expert crew with over 30 years of experience searching for dolphins in their natural habitat. Enjoy an unforgettable day trip along the stunning coastline of Southern Portugal. Choose from a range of boat rides to suit every wish, including the famous Tornado Rib, which brings you fully into the action. Your fully-certified skipper will have an excellent knowledge of dolphin activity in the area, with sightings guaranteed in over 95% of trips. First, depart from Portimão and feel the thrill of the wind in your face as you glide across the glistening Atlantic Ocean in search of beautiful bottlenose and common dolphins or other wildlife species.

Did the tour two days in a row because we were so excited. The team is super nice and experienced and very careful that the animals are in the foreground. The trip with the boat was great fun and we always had great dolphin watching every time again

Excellent, the girl guide knows a lot about the subject and is always giving interesting facts. The man at the kiosk is terrific. We had a fantastic experience and we could almost touch the dolphins.
