Originally called Gil Eanes Expedition, this tour is our bestseller and was our only tour for many years. The route will be planed regarding the particular sea conditions of the day and adapted along the journey. A true adventure!

Always check the day on the booking as sometimes we chance the departure times, to cope with the weather and Sea conditions. Some days may include partial refunds in case you don’t see dolphins or different prices.

The tour can be divided in 4 parts:

River search
Ocean search
  • We’ll sail into the ocean (if sea conditions allow) looking for dolphins and whales.
  • After being with the dolphins and depending on sea conditions, we’ll keep looking for a highly interactive group or whales.
Dolphin Encounter
  • We’ll try to stay away from other boats and have consistent steering that encourage dolphins to stay close to us. We’ll let you know the group structure, their habits and behaviours.
  • After you having your moment looking at dolphins, we’ll teach you to observe them, you’ll see them in a different way!
Return with sightseeing
  • Before arrival we’ll pass by the main monuments with short and interesting facts.
  • Upon arrival and after a quick WC break, we’ll teach to identify the species that we saw and some fanservice for those who want to stick a ‘little’ longer.

Remember, we aim to find dolphins in this tour, if the weather forecast doesn’t fit our standards, we will have to change your original plans and agree on a better  time, day, distance covered, or departure location. For a tour with a planed route, check out the Lisbon & Dolphins tour.
