Very enjoyable trip, staff were informative and friendly. Didn't see any dolphins but the coastline and caves are worth seeing on their own.

An excellent trip aided by a really fun tour guide. Lots of dolphins to see without disturbing them, also saw a Peregrine Falcon in one of the caves.

The views are amazing. Do not forget to take your camera. The catamaran take you to see the dolphins but on the way you will see fantastic stone formation on the sea shore and caves.

We did the Dolphins and coastal caves tour which is organised from the little stand in the square of the old town when you go down the escalators (Blue Dolphins) It was 35 euros for a two hour excursion. The staff are all very friendly,...More

Went on the trip yesterday, and have to say the "terrible" reviews are very unfounded! Arrived to check in and got a useful bag and two bottles of water. Went to the modern boat and off we went. Interesting going past all the caves and...More

Great day out. We started the trip slightly delayed due to a previous boat. This could have been better communicated to the group, however this is forgiven since we were able to find dolphins which was magical to see. The cave exploring itself was good...More

An excellent day had. Great to see the dolphins in their natural habitat. Wrap up if you get cold easily though as it's windy.

Excellent guide, described and named everything we saw, mainly caves, which were magnificent. We were directed from the caves by radio to where the Dolphins were, and we were not disappointed, they were wonderful .

I'm going to albufeira in the first week of November. I would love to see some wild dolphins, am I likely to be able to go on a tour at this time of year or will it be too cold/ or will the tours have stopped if it's out of season? Thanks in advance!x

Hi Charlotte, I think dolphin season lasts till November but I suspect it would be colder than summer. Maybe ask the operator? Sorry I am not of much help...
