Amazing trip !
Excellent driver and good explanations of the caves. We saw many caves of the coat including Benagil.

It’s beautiful ! But very fast sometimes we didn’t have the time to enjoy the beauty of the coast...
We didn’t stop to swim :( and no stops in the caves also... we stay in the boat and sitted
We saw many Dolphins at the end of the trip!
It was windy but ok.
Jackets are on board and free to protect you from the wind/cold.

We left in a thick fog. Came back to reschedule after an hour trip. Then we had our two hour trip. The fog stayed for the dolphin search, then blue skies for the caves. Saw dolphins and the caves were amazing. The guide was great - very friendly and informative. We were comfortable and felt safe. They provided rain jackets and life vests. We all really appreciated that they made the decision to get us out later in the day due to fog. They didn’t have to do that. We had a very nice time.

Jun 2019 • Family
The 2 hours tour with Ruben and Jesus ( I think) was great. We were very lucky and saw 6 dolphins incl. a mother and her baby. Knowledgeable guide (marine biologist) and very nice and secure boat driver. Beautiful tour along the coast and in couple of caves incl. the remarkable benagil cave. Very good value for money.

Best boat trip there is!
This defenitly is the best boat trip in Albufeira. Time wise it's perfect to be at sea for 3 hours. The trip goes past the beautiful coastline of the Algarve and the boat goes really close, and sometimes even inside several caves.

Halfway the trip there is tbe chance for a nice refreshing swim before taking off to spot dolphins. We we really lucky and spotted a big school of dolphins which was really nice.

On board there is enough space to sit and enjoy the view. The boat wasn't fully packed which was very nice. Also the bar on board was good and offered the opportunity for a nice refreshing drink.

Finally staff was very friendly and we got a great tour. Defenitly doing this trip again one day!

Booked this without doing any research and was highly delighted with the trip, all staff are lovely and the free bottle of water was a nice touch. We were lucky enough to see the dolphins, wonderful sight, the caves are a sight to behold , the skill of the captain of the boat was amazing as he manouvered it into the cave. Highly recommend this trip.

Enjoyable...
Booked onto this trip for our last day and very pleased we did. The marina is lovely in itself and although we didn't get to see any dolphins, our tour guide ensured the whole experience was worthwhile for everyone involved and the captain got us as close to the caves as possible. A real eye opener. The atmosphere was relaxed from beginning to end and our teenagers also enjoyed the experience. My only gripe, may sound trivial, but we were told we must be at the office by 2pm, ready for departure at 2.30pm. We made sure we were, as lots of others also had. However at 2.45pm, in the blistering heat, we still hadn't boarded and when I asked what the issue was, they were still waiting for people to check in!!! You had their money, it's their responsibility, LEAVE ON TIME!

Amazing....
We decided to go for the Larger Catamaran instead of the smaller RIB trip and was a little dubious on what we would see but had absolutely no need to be the boat was skippered brilliantly and taken in as close as they possibly could to see the rock formations and cave entrances, the on board guide gave running commentary of the rocks, beaches all the way up the coast

Stopping in a cove to give the opportunity for a brief swim around in the sea before getting back on board and setting off way out to sea in search of dolphins

We were unfortunate and did not see any dolphins but please do not take that as a negative the whole 3 hours was well worth the money and we all agreed it was a great trip and would even consider doing it again later in the holiday

Good music, refreshments(including fully stocked bar) and toilets on board there is nothing negative to say

Dear Andrew c Thank you for your comments. Although we always try our utmost to find wild dolphins in our shores sometimes they just don´t show up.. It is our goal to make this tour a very interesting and pleasant program even when you don´t see dolphins and are very glad that you felt the same way. Once again thank you for your review and we hope to see you again in the future. Kind regards Dolphins Driven
