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.

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.

We loved loved loved the trip! I can't recommend it high enough, really, it was spectacular! We saw around 50 dolphins, who were incredibly close to the boat, followed us and played around. The guides were very friendly and knowledgebale. I am seriously considering repeating the trip 😀

Wir haben leider keine Delfine gesehen. Trotzdem geben wir ganz klar 5 Sterne, die Crew war einzigartig und hat sich super um alle gekümmert. Die Stimmung war fröhlich und locker und sie haben alles dafür getan die Delfine noch zu finden (haben sogar 40 Minuten überzogen) und uns wurde angeboten es am nächsten Tag noch einmal zu versuchen. Vielen herzlichen Dank für die trotzdem sehr schöne Erfahrung!

I recommend this experience 100%. Even if it is only for the boat ride, Our group was lucky enough to find a group of 100+ dolphins. According to Sadie the normal is to find groups of around 20 to 30 dolphins. It really looked like the Pilot and the Sadie put their heart into find the dolphins that day, even if that meant to extend the trip an extra half hour. My girlfriend an I will always remember the day the saw dolphins in Lagos.
