Owner description: Sealife is a small company that has specialised in dolphin watching on the Atlantic Ocean. We are operating from the Marina of Lagos in the Algarve, the southern district of Portugal. From April through November we organise ocean safaris onboard our rigid inflatable boats, accompanied by our Marine Biologists, with the objective of showing you wild dolphins in their natural environment and/or other ocean wildlife such as birds, whales, porpoises, turtles, sunfishes or even sharks.

We booked a bit more expensive trip with Sealife as they had great new boats with 2 seats seating on the boat, so you are never in the middle. The booking went all smooth as the boarding. The trip itself was amazing, first at a slow pace in the harbour area and then full speed searching for dolphins. After 20 min we found the first 5 or 6, which was cool. But the captain was informed by another boat there were more dolphins nearby, so went really full speed towards that area, which was amazing, we had around 30 dolphins around us, bigger and smaller ones. We could take great pictures and movies. As we were far from Lagos we had to go full speed back which was a great journey. YES this is a MUST do in lagos!!

We took a trip on the very fast "Lord The Dolphins" - very exhilarating and hugely enjoyable with a great guy driving the boat and a Marine Biologist as our guide. When we saw the Dolphin's jumping I knocked one off my "bucket list " .... it was an amazing experience and we got tons of information from the two crew members..... the Highlight of my holiday and I would thoroughly recommend doing the trip with these guys - what can I say but thanks for making a long held dream come true !!!

Very glad went with this small, fast boat! Mafalda very knowledgable and she and our driver Joao were able to spot/follow dolphin pods easily. Dolphins in 2/3s came alongside our boat/ nearby - amazing experience! Thank you

We headed out on a small but fast boat which was fun in itself. The crew of 2 were freindly and knowledgable and were expert at spotting sea life. We saw a large pod of dolphins that spent quite some swimming alongside, under and around our boat. Also saw a sea turtle and a flying fish. Was an amazing experience and the highlight of our holiday, well worth the money.
