If you’ve always wanted to see wild dolphins, look no further than this dolphin watching and cave tour from Albufeira. Your guide knows the best places to spot the Algarve’s resident dolphins, which maximizes your chance of observing the marine creatures in their natural habitat. Plus, unlike on other similar tours, you’ll have the opportunity to take a dip in the Atlantic Ocean. Choose from several departure times throughout the day. 

What to Expect

Your dolphin-watching tour begins at the departure time of your choice at Albufeira Marina, where you’ll greet your guide and board an RIB (rigid inflatable boat). Following a short safety briefing, you’ll jet off along the Algarve coastline toward Alfanzina’s Beacon.

Half way through your cruise, you’ll stop to take a dip in the refreshing waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Take note that many similar tours through this area don't offer this swimming experience. Then, head to areas renowned for sightings of dolphins and with luck, watch pods of dolphins frolic in the water.

Your tour concludes at the original departure point of Albufeira Marina.
