Caves and Dolphin Watching Cruise from Albufeira
USD 41.63 per adult
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.

Caves and Dolphin Watching

Enjoyable boat ride but caves are very much the same. Views of coastline were spectacular though. We were lucky enough to see some bottle nose dolphins but on another day would have been a bit dissapointing if you couldn't find them which isn't a given....More

Makes me feel so wonderful to see these creatures where they should be - in the ocean, not swimming with kids in an enclosure. Hats off to the skippers for finding them. Had this trip on the larger boat holding 20people. It was more stable...More
