Dolphins are becoming one of the hallmarks of the Algarve. The number of dolphins on the Algarve coast has been increasing and there is a growing demand for dolphin watching. In the Algarve there are two more predominant species, the common dolphin and the dolphin roaz.
There is also the possibility of seeing orcas, also known as killer whales, which happens much less frequently, but is undoubtedly a unique moment. Common dolphins are more "playful", often jumping and accompanying the boat, something the younger ones love. While bottlenose dolphins are larger in size, they are usually more timid, although they are generally very friendly.
The scenery on the high seas is beautiful with the Dolphins swimming side by side with the boats and entertaining kids and adults.
