Really worth the money

Time was changed almost straight after booking but is to be expected with what’s going on. Boat was a little late arriving but overall experience was brilliant. We was lucky it was a very calm day and we see several pods of dolphins which made it very special! The boat is linked to several others so they share gps to help find dolphins but do make you aware at the start they are wild animals so no guarantees.

Ok trip, no dolfins and bad guide

The trip was ok and unfortunately we were among the small Minority not finding the dolfins. But the Tourguide was poor with almost no explanation and nothing about Algarve marine life. Bad experience.

All of our dolphin tours have a skipper and a marine biologist on board so unfortunately we cannot relate to your review. As for not seeing the dolphin they are wild animals and we can't guarantee them but we do try our hardest and find them 87% of the time. Algarvexcite Team

Changed time and refused refund

Provider changed the time of my trip to over an hour later with only 30 mins notice. I couldn't attend later in the day and I was told I couldn't get a refund as I was a no show even though I was promised a refund on the phone! Luckily Viator gave me a refund as a 'goodwill gesture'. I would be wary of booking incase the time changes and you still have to pay even if unable to attend.

We were sorry we needed to delay the trip slightly but due to the weather in the morning this was necessary to do so , when you said your unable to attend we offered an alternative time which you could not then we offered a refund we only stated we could not do it directly , it would be made via viator which they did. Thanks Algarvexcite

Granted we were lucky to see the Dolphins at a close range. The caves were impressive due to rough seas we couldn't drive boat through the caves to have a good look which is a shame so only saw them from a far. I like to be up close and personal. But that's Mother Nature. Tour itself was spot on.

easy to book, easy to locate, easy to board.not so easy to see any dolphins! But that's not the fault of the team. Great time. Not a crowded boat - open to the elements, and fast. Make sure you take extra layers - plenty of room on board for backpacks.

Boat trip was great, and seeing the caves was good too. Unfortunately the Dolphins were not having any of it that day and was so disappointing. I know wild animals are unpredictable, but there must be so many people who pay all this money NOT to see them. Also wrap up warm, it is freezing and you get soaked, wish we had been warned before we went.
