About ECCO Ocean
ECCO Ocean is the only licensed dolphin watching agency operation from Lisbon. We are a private and individual initiative led by a marine biologist that studies dolphins and whales. ECCO Ocean runs on a strategy where its marine research is self-financed through ecotourism Our ecotours are conducted on our research vessel the Megaptera, a spacious and cosy trimaran which will sail fast and under minimum or no engine use. This will provide silent and more pure experience. The ecotours are mainly focused in dolphin watching expeditions, which is our speciality and our main study subject. Seabirds and sightseeing of the wild landscape are also present in this expedition. Expeditions far from the Sea comprise birdwatching in the Tagus Estuary and upriver. For those less adventurous we have tours to admire the city that was built to be seen from the river. The expeditions are genuine scientific surveys where a biologist is always present collecting valuable data and you are our guests.
