If you stay in Sesimbra or nearby, then this tour is a must. Spectacular viewing of the Arribida marine park. Crew very knowledgeable about the area. Highly recommended

It was such a nice experience! We saw many dolphins and the nice instructor gave us plenty of information about the dolphins.

Beautiful morning on the water following dolphins and meandering along the rocky shore, including stopping for a swim.

We went for kajaking and snorkeling with José as our instructor and it was an amazing experience!

Chouette expérience, guides très sympathiques, bonnes explications
