The Algarve coast is known for its golden coast, on this tour, we will take you to discover over 15 caves, including the most famous cave of the Algarve - the Benagil cave. 
Everyone gets impressed by the beautiful colour contrast along the coast and the clear blue waters. There are some caves where we can even enter the caves with the boat, including the famous Benagil cave.
This cave and dolphin watching tour departs from Salema beach, our first mission will be to find wild dolphins, after we will cruise along the coastline, to take you to the most beautiful caves of the Algarve. In fact, there are amazing secret caves that can only be visited by boat. 
During the coastal and dolphin-watching tour from Salema, if you want we can stop for a refreshing dive in the ocean, at a more calm place (it’s not allowed to disembark the boat in Benagil cave - by law). It’s a good plan to bring your camera, as we will visit beautiful places, a great way to capture great memories!
This tour will take 3 hours. Our rigid inflatable passenger boat is a very safe boat, in fact, this type of boats are many times used for rescues. The boat can take up to 12 people. 
If the tour booked is expected to be cancelled, you will be contacted in the evening before your tour to try to reschedule. It may occasionally happen that the tours are cancelled last-minute. We’re sorry, but this can happen as the sea can be rather unforeseeable and we want your safety above all.
During this tour we will first search for wild dolphins and other animals, we have experienced many close ocean animal encounters. Proudly, since march 2020 we have had a 100% success rate in finding dolphins. The most observed cetaceous is the common dolphin, but once in a while, we are lucky to find other species of dolphins, whales, turtles and even orcas! 
After we have seen the dolphins, we will cruise back along the coast and visit the most impressive caves of the Algarve. Come on this boat trip with your group of friends and/or family and enjoy this unique experience that combines the caves and the dolphins
