WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW BEFORE GOING DOLPHIN WATCHING IN SETÚBAL
Is it normal for people to get seasick at sea?
It’s very rare for anyone to get seasick on one of our tours. The vast majority of tours only take place in favorable conditions and the boat used minimizes the slow and prolonged oscillations that cause seasickness. If you suffer from chronic motion sickness, where you get seasick even in the car, we recommend taking a pill 30 minutes before boarding.
What should I bring?
Bring comfortable clothing suitable for the season you’ll be in the water. We also recommend that you bring a hat, sunscreen and sunglasses, a camera as well as a bathing suit and towel in case you want to take a dip. Don’t forget that it’s often 10 degrees colder in the water, so a jacket or windbreaker is never a bad idea.
Can we always see the dolphins?
The probability of seeing dolphins is very high (around 95% of our tours) as the dolphin population lives in Setúbal Bay on a permanent basis. Even so, there are a few days when the dolphins are not seen by any boat.
What if I don't get to see the dolphins on my tour?
If your tour is one of the rare days when dolphin watching is not possible, you will receive a free voucher to reschedule. Arrábida Sea Ventures thus ensures that when you buy a ticket you are sure to see dolphins.
Is it possible to swim with dolphins?
It is forbidden by law to swim with wild dolphins in mainland Portugal. You can do this on the islands of the Azores and Madeira, where you are allowed to swim with dolphins, subject to a number of rules.
How can I book?
You can book directly online on our website; use the contact form; or by phone or email.

What happens in the event of bad weather?
If the weather conditions are not favorable and the crew decides that it is better not to go out to sea, we will contact you in order to reschedule your reservation for a later date, if this is not possible, we will refund you in full.
