Dolphin Watching with Marine Biologists

Lagos, Portugal

Animal experience hosted by Goncalo

  1. 90 mins
  2. Hosted in English and Portuguese

What you'll do

Your Dolphin Watching Experience will begin at the Marina de Lagos.
Firstly checking in at the BomDia Boat Trip office opposite the Pontoon entrance. A member of our crew will then take you down to the boat that you will be travelling on and arrange the life jackets. A safety briefing and also a trip description will be given by one of the crew as you set off down the river.
This boat trip is one and a half hours round trip in search of wild dolphins and any other wild animals that we may be lucky enough to see.
Once out of the river we will then speed up on the ocean and commence our search, we do have hot spots and feeding areas that we check but these beautiful wild animals can be anywhere.
Once we find the Dolphins our professional crew will respectfully allow the Dolphins to approach and also answer any questions that you may have regarding the particular species you are seeing or any other species you may have questions about. You are free to leave your seats and move around the boat, taking pictures and soaking up the beautiful experience.
When it is time to leave back to land, everyone will be seated again for the journey back to the Marina.
Our crew will be very happy to talk more once back in the river about any questions you have or ways you can help retain the environment for these beautiful animals.
Other things to note
In high season please ensure you wear sunscreen and allow plenty of time to reach the meeting point.
In the low season please ensure you wear appropriate clothing (jacket or extra jumper) as it can be a bit chilly. Sun screen is recommended in low season too.

Hello fellow Dolphin enthusiasts.
I have personally been a part of Sealife Dolphin watching for 5 years and have the privilege of working alongside some of the most passionate and knowledgeable people in this field who have also worked with the company for longer than me! Together we have turned Sealife into one of the most dedicated and educational Dolphin watching companies in the Algarve
We have a common goal together which is to enable respectful access for everyone to be able to view Dolphins, and other animals we may be lucky enough to see, wild and natural in their own environment.
I work with Marine Biologists who have a love and passion that I believe absolutely unique. We are committed to passing our knowledge of these beautiful animals plus the message of sustainability for their environment.

    Great day! We saw a lot of dolphins - two different large pods swam around our boat for a while. The host Goncalo was friendly and knowledgeable. Recommend!

    Het was een bijzondere ervaring. We hebben extra lang gevaren maar helaas geen dolfijnen gezien. Dat was jammer maar niets aan te doen

    Although the ocean was a little choppy due to some rain we had a great tour and saw a lot of dolphins that approached our boat very closely. On the way back to Lagos we even stopped by at some of the grottos/cliffs. The group was small and we could move around the boat freely to watch the dolphins. Our hosts shared interesting information about dolphins with us. Would do it again :).

    we were lucky and were able to see a large pot of dolphins that were very curious and came up alongside the boat
