I took the trip at 17 august with my 2 daughters and 2 nice swiss ladies. It was a luxury tot have a guide for ony the 5 of us. Our guide Rodrigues was, besides the dolphins, the main reason that we had a fantastic day. He picked us up on time at hotel, the ride to the boat was enjoyable because of his knowledge and great sense of humor. The trip on the catamaran was super, you could sit or lay down on the net and enjoy the sun and the wind or take a short swim while the captain was looking for the Dolphins. When the dolphins were spotted we sailed as long as possible in their proximity so that we had a good and long view. I would recommend this trip tot everyone. It's certainly worth the money !
Overall, we enjoyed the trip very much. The return trip close to the shore was very nice. The guide shared some interesting info with us during that time. It would have helped to have some signage or have the guide meet us as we wondered around quite before we found the tour. The boat did not have comfortable seating with only two small seats with backs and the rest of the people had to sit together on a big square seat with no backs. A more comfortable boat would have made the trip more enjoyable.
We had a last minute request to change our trip date due to a technical problem with the boat. However Joao was very flexible and accommodating to our needs and we managed to still do the trip to see the dolphins. Joao was very friendly and he was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Portugal and the dolphins and we had a very enjoyable day. Thank you so much, we really appreciated you making arrangements to fit us in during our time in Lisbon .
We had a wonderful time! We were able to spend some time with a beautiful bottlenose dolphin family. The skipper & the guide were very nice and professional and we felt like the well being of the wildlife is first priority!
Great day with João. Saw delphins and some of Lisbons coastline. Lunch at a local market was superb. Thanks, we've really enjoyed it and can definitely recommend it!
