Walking down to the Marina in Albufiera I came accross Algarve xcite, amongst many other similar boat trip vendors. However, I was given a better overall idea of the trip, and what to expect by sharon who clearly outlined the trip. We saw many dolphins, in a small group, and we were treated to a lovely trip around the coast and caves. I would highly reccomend this business. Frank

We visited Vilamoura for one week at the start of June and we strolled by the Marina and saw the Algarvexcite hub, we booked on a parasailing trip (35euro each) for the Friday morning and we loved it! Having booked for first thing (and in off peak season) we ended up being the only two to parasail that day, the guys who took us out explained everything to us including all the safety points and then before we knew it we were up in the air! Would definitely recommend everyone to do it. The following day we took the caves and dolphins cruise(35euro each), the weather was grey and the sea was very choppy meaning we couldn't go in through the caves, we even struggled to find some dolphins but the guy who took us on that trip spent more time to try and find them and when we did we were delighted! He said we found the bottle nose dolphins who are quite rare in the area and we even managed to get them to swim beside the boat for a while. If it's a grey day you MUST bring warm jackets as it was freezing out at sea. The two trips were excellent and if we had more time we would have spend another day on the dolphin cruise, it's a fantastic experience and both trips were the highlight of our week!

We recently returned from a two week stay in Portugal,(family of 4) we drove down to the Marina in Albuferia and booked a parasailing trip with Sinni.
Our family loved it, we were kept well informed at all times, Dave the skipper was fab, very proffesional, the guy who was driving the speedboat let my 8 year old son have a go.

We were out for an hour and a half with two other groups, it was definately worth 35 euros for an adult and 25 euros for a child.

The day before going home we decided to go to the underground car park to do Go Karting - this was also run by the same company .... we started our practice lap and my son was ahead of everyone else, I did not realise until i got round the corner that he had crashed into a wall, it was only when I got closer that he was unconscious, the staff there called an ambulance and stayed with us at all times. My son eventually came round but could not remember anything, the paramedics arrived and put a head and neck brace on and put him on a spinal board and took us to hospital. I could not fault the staff at all, they asked us to let them know how he got on... Thankfully after 10 hours in hospital with MRI and xrays, he got the all clear. The next day (day of departure) we went back to the Go Karting place, they were so relieved to see him, we were just so thankful for all their help! Although we wont be doing Go Karting again, we will certainly book the Dolphin Cruise or other activities next time were on holiday there

We have just returned from an amazing holiday in the Algarve whilst there we took our girls on a boat trip to see the dolphins . It was amazing there was so many of them and the trip was fun too. The girls have lots of photos to show off at school. Thanks for the trip guys we will see you next year.

We made the mistake of booking onto a dolphin/caves tour at a ticket office in the old town. it was only when we drove down to the marina that we realised we could have booked there instead and saved a whacking €10 each!!! The trip itself was great, we saw dolphins almost immediately and the coastline is beautiful. The speedboat was really fast so even the journey to and from the dolphin site was exciting. very little interaction with the skipper until it was time to pass round the tip pot!
