Dolphin watching

Set off on the Cabanas boat to observe schools of dolphins and gain a better understanding of these charming, gregarious, intelligent and surprisingly fast animals. Did you know that dolphins can put just half of their brain to sleep?

You may also spot other species such as flying-fish, moon fish and large ocean-going turtles. The skipper’s explanations reveal new insights into the Ria Formosa fauna and coastline.

On the overwhelming majority of trips, the common or bottlenose dolphins are spotted, as the boats share information about their locations. However, spotting the animal is not guaranteed.


Boat trip, 2 hours and 30 minutes, departing from Cabanas de Tavira, from €30 per person.
