Dolphin watching with WildWatch Algarve!

Since this year Benagil Holidays is offering dolphin watching tours in corporation with WildWatch Algarve. It is guaranteed that you will see many dolphins on their trips!

The office of Wild Watch is located in the authentique village of Ferragudo. From here you will take the water taxi to Praia da Rocha, Portimao. From this point you will take the 12 persons boat. Here the adventure starts!

Wild Watch knows exactly the best spots where you will see the dolphins. This is guaranteed. In case you will not see any dolphins (really small chance thought), they offer you another trip for free!

We did the trip ourselves as well and we were very enthusiastic about it. We have never seen so many wild dolphins! These beautiful animals swim and jump along the side of the boat and they really seem to enjoy it. And you even more!

It was a fantastic experience which we can recommend to everyone! After the trip Wild Watch is inviting you for a drink and a debriefing. During this presentation you will also see the video they made during your trip. This video will be send to you by email so you will never forget!

We can book these trips for you by contacting us.
