Are you ready for Setúbal Dolphin watching? 

Did you know that not far from Lisbon, in the Setúbal bay, there is a resident pod of dolphins? This tour on our catamaran will take you for a fun experience of Setúbal dolphin watching. Seeing those mammals in their natural habitat is always magical! Join us for an amazing 3-hour catamaran tour in Setúbal. Setúbal is easy to reach from Lisbon, so it’s the perfect destination for a day trip during your stay in Lisbon. 

The friendly and experienced crew will welcome you on board of our big and spacious catamaran. This catamaran is very safe and stable, making it the perfect boat tour for all ages. Once everybody is comfortably seated in the sun or shade, off we go to search for dolphins in the Sado river estuary!  Setúbal dolphin watching is a great way to observe these magical creatures in their natural environment. Thanks to our experienced crew, we find the group of dolphins on almost all of the tours. Since they’re wild animals that are not being fed, it can’t be guaranteed 100%. 

During the tour, you can also enjoy the impressive view over the arrábida mountains. We will also make a stop, where you can take a refreshing dive. If you like, you can even grab the snorkeling equipment we have on board! Onboard, you'll find some local marine experts. They will be able to give you a lot of interesting information about dolphins in general and specifically about the resident pod of bottlenose dolphins in Setúbal bay.
