We had a magical time. Special thanks to our guide Sid who is very friendly and makes sure everyone is well and safe. The SMS sent the day before with the geolocation of the meeting place is particularly appreciable and bears witness to the attention to detail and the attention paid to the participants. Nature has also spoiled us because the dolphins were there and in VERY large numbers. The knowledge of our guide and the respect for nature that he transmits are just a few positive points of this activity that I recommend to all eyes closed. Take young and old and they will come back, like us, with stars in their eyes!

Superb outing where we saw the dolphins swimming at a certain distance from your boat, we were amazed, the weather was really with us. Then direction the sea where we took some beautiful feeling to go in search of cetaceans. On the return short stop in front of the Belem tower where we tasted a Lisbon wine
