Really experienced and knowledgeable crew. Glad we went for a rib, as opposed to a big boat, much more fun for the kids, and only us on the boat. We started out on the trip itinerary, but the captain heard of some dolphin sightings, so checked if we were happy to run there as quickly as possible - queue some great fun flying across the waves to find a large pod of dolphins. First ones there :) The family were so excited to see the dolphins, well worth the cost of the experience. A very knowledgeable Marine Biologist as host rounded out a fantastic experience. Thanks so much!

An amazing tour with a great guide who was a marine biologist that really knew what he was talking about! We went to all the caves in and around Benagil (including a secret additional one!), had an informative couple of hours, saw some amazing dolphins and had an all around great time. We went on two day trips during our time in Vilamoura and this one was the best by far!

An unforgettable excursion especially by Francesco our Guide and José the Captain of the boat. An exceptional treatment, an attention of 10 and a spectacular affection with which they guided us. An excursion that you will never forget Thank you very much to both of you with all my heart.
