Overview
Your Caves and Dolphin Watching Cruise begins at the new marina of Albufeira where you will board the boat "Insonia". Cruise along the Algarve coastline between to the Beach of Carvoeiro passing spectacular rock formations on the way. Also visit the Benagil sea cave.
Highlights
  • Book online ahead of time to guarantee a spot on this popular guided tour
  • Explore in a small boat that grants access to caves and grottoes 
  • Go to Carvoeiro Beach and cruise the Atlantic Ocean without getting lost 
  • Easy-to-find meeting spot at Albufeira Marina for convenience
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.

Went on this trip with my 17 year old daughter, we really enjoyed the experience, the caves were amazing and we saw lots of little hidden beaches, the dolphins did not appear but we did not mind as we had such a good time.
