Caves and Dolphin Watching Cruise from Albufeira
From US$40.66
Overview
Avoid the hassle of renting and navigating a boat in unfamiliar territory on a stress-free dolphin watching cruise from Albufeira. A small, motorized boat grants you access to the hard-to-reach caves and grottoes that line Albufeira's coast, while a guide transports you to places with increased dolphin activity. A great option for families, this experience combines education with entertainment.
What to Expect
Meet at Albufeira Marina a little before your departure time. Check in, hop aboard a small boat, and get ready to cruise the Atlantic Ocean.

Once you get out on the water, relax as your guide takes you to areas to see views of the nearby sandstone cliffs. Head toward Carvoeiro Beach, and get the chance to explore the caves.

Afterward, your guide knows some of the best places to spot dolphins. A sighting is not 100-percent guaranteed, but you can possibly see two types of dolphins, common dolphins and bottlenose dolphins. If you do spot them, chances are they’ll be swimming close to your boat in their natural habitat.

Your guided tour ends when your boat reaches the Albufeira Marina and docks.

Don't waste your money here

Awful. We booked this tour in the morning. They promised small boat so they can go more inside the caves. Lies! When the tour started they changed it to big boat. 80% of the time it was in deep sea, far far from the coast,...More

No dolphins but lots of fun!

My partner and I had a great time on this trip. The boat ride itself was very thrilling! Sometimes when hitting waves you get a real beating and you will get wet with the surf! I recommend not wearing a hat and securing your hair...More
