More info about the boat trip Dolphin watching & Marine Wildlife

With departures from Olhão or from Faro, this is a 2-hour dolphin watching boat trip in the Algarve.

The Algarve is one of the most popular regions in Portugal for whale and dolphin watching in the wild. Current knowledge about cetaceans in this region is still very limited, however previous studies indicate the possible occurrence of 15 different species of cetaceans, some of which have a regular occurrence and others are only occasional.

The most frequently sighted species on our boat trips are the Common dolphin and Bottlenose dolphin, though we have some records of species like the Harbour porpoise and Minke Whale. Your skipper/ nature guide will share his knowledge about these fantastic animals while we head towards their usual feeding sites.
