Beautiful scenery and a great trip with the super experienced Captain Edgar! We were alone at the sea and he was able to pop up some dolphins within 1 hour, after that we went to see some caves and beaches along the coastline. Shore a most do when in Arrabida!

Hello Lucia, Thanks for let us host you here through Arrabida paradise and for taking time to review our work! In fact we were alone at the sea and it’s more difficult to find dolphins on those conditions but also pays off when we see them and be able to interact with them directly. All the Best, Edgar

This tour made my families trip! Captain Edgar went out of his way to make it super fun. We saw over 20 dolphins and got right next to them. The caves we visited were gorgeous and we even stopped for a swim. Thanks Edgar for an amazing experience that my family and I will never forget.

Edgar was an amazing host! We were able to find the start point super easy. My 17 year old son would not stop talking about how many dolphins we saw! We followed a pod of around 7 dolphins and they really put on a show for us. Then, Edgar took us along the coast through different sea caves and we were so impressed with his driving skills! We also stopped at the most beautiful blue water to jump in. Bluest water I’ve ever seen! The entire time, Edgar gave us information about the history of different places around the coast. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND, you won’t regret it! 100% worth it.

I took this amazing boat trip with my 9 years old son and my 14 years old nephew who was scared.
Edgar was very helpful from the start by letting my nephew check the boat prior to the trip and giving insight of the boat and trip.To say that my nephew enjoyed it so much that he even went for a swim towards the end of the trip.
We observed allot of dolphins, respecting their habitat. And the extraordinary Arabia coast, we also went on to check their caves underneath. Amazing to say the least!

Edgar was a pleasure of a tour guide, with fluent English. We had a great time exploring the coast and followed a pod of common dolphins hunting fish. We even saw some babies trying to keep up.

A boat tour is definitely contingent on the weather, and in our case, we had a stiff southern breeze, which made the surf dangerous to drive the boat in between the rocks, but Edgar was skillful enough to briefly enter a sea cave. We highly recommend it.

As a weeding anniversary present, I booked the Arrabida Coast boat ride.

We were very lucky with the weather - no wind, calm sea and 18/19ºC on the water.

The tour lasted from 10am to 02pm and was worth the 50€/pax paid.

The scenery is amazing, we saw the picture perfect beaches from a sea perspective and can even stop for a swin in any of them.

Edgar - owner and tour guide - is a great guy. He's passionate about what he does and really tries to provide clients with an excellent experience. Besides the coast, he took us to see the dolphins (which we were lucky to spot in 2 different locations). He stops were you want and he popped open 2 white wine bottles from the region.

In the end he gave us a top-tip on were to lunch and the place rocked!!!!!!

So, thanks Edgar for a lovely day and congrats to you! You deserve it!

Hey Paulo, Thank you for your feedback! I must say you were really lucky to see dolphins on 2 spots, but truth is, it only can happen to the people who come :) Hope to see you again soon! Kind Regards
