Most memorable day from our holiday , our "captain " on the day was hilarious , he took us on what I would describe as a white knuckle ride out to sea to experience the beautiful dolphins in their natural habitats , he had a wealth of knowledge on the dolphins , after the dolphin watching he took us along the coastline to admire the beaches (all white flag ) and on to the caves (where other tour companies took you as far as the entrance of the caves ) black runner persisted and brought us right through the caves , where you get to see the breathtaking natural beauty of the caves . Would HIGHLY recommend this as part of your holiday ,

We went on the boat trip on 8/9/13 and had an amazing ride. The trip is divided into two parts dolphin search and cave cruising. First we drove out on the Atlantic (ca. 18 km) and were lucky to see the dolphins. This was really incredible. They swam directly next to the boat and our skipper followed them for about 30 minutes. Beside that he told is very interesting faves about the dolphins. After that we went back to the coat and we were shown the caves and lonely beaches. The skipper told us many insider tips e.g. Where to go out at night, where to eat the best fish. The two hour trip cost 30 € + 6 € for the two way hotel transfer. I can strongly recommend this trip!

Lots of choice in Albufeira for dolphin-spotting boat trips. We chose Black Runner because they were the shortest, we didn't wanna spend all day at sea, and they let you go for a swim. We looked at the caves for the first hour, which were interesting but we didn't go through them, just into the entrance and back out. Then we went out to sea to look for dolphins. I wasn't sure what effort had been made to actively seek them out, but we didn't see any. And we weren't invited to swim in the sea either. Then the driver asked us for tips..! Wouldn't go again, but I imagine every trip is different.
