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.

Excellent tour, saw a pod of 100-200 common dolphins off the coast. Perfect sea condition and the dolphins put on a show for us!

Gonçalo war sehr nett und hat viel zu den Delfinen erzählt. Leider war es heute schwierig die Delfine zu finden. Nach fast 50 Minuten haben wir dann eine kleine Gruppe Bottlenose Delfine gesehen, sogar mit Baby Delfin. Wir waren sehr weit weg von Lagos, fast auf der Höhe bei Benagil. Sehr gut war, dass Gonçalo trotz der fortgeschrittenen Zeit noch lange bei der Delfingruppe blieb, so dass wir ca. 15 Minuten über der Zeit im Hafen von Lagos einliefen.

Großartige Tour! Wir haben eine sehr große Gruppe Delphine (ca 100 Tiere) und einen Minkwal gesehen. Unserem Guide hat man die Begeisterung für die Tiere angemerkt. Würde ich sofort wieder buchen!
