Dolphin Watching Arrábida
Have you met the bottlenose dolphins that live freely in Arrábida Nature Park? Our dolphin watching tour is a favorite of those who visit Arrábida Sea Ventures and an experience you will not forget! Known for their natural playful nature, the bottlenose dolphins are as social with each other as they are with those who approach them. They will greet you with chirps, whistles, and clicks as if welcoming you to spend a little while among them.
Eco Tourism near Lisbon
Sado Estuary and Arrábida Nature Park, located 30 minutes away from Lisbon, are the home of a large community of bottlenose dolphins. Commonly known by Roazes in Portuguese, their calves go by “cuties” – a term which suits them extremely well. This docile and protected species loves interaction and more than telling you all about them we can show you how they socialize, feed and play. Our dolphin watching tour is designed to take you and your group on a cruise along Arrábida’s Coast. Where you will meet both the environment and the biodiversity of their habitat.
What else can I expect from my Boat Tour in Arrábida
We have also included a few treats for you to take the most out of your visit. Enjoy the splendid view over Sesimbra, Setúbal, Tróia and Arrábida’s mountain range. Discover historical archaeological sites, unique geological formations, hidden caves among the cliffs and the most beautiful beaches along the coast.
We will make a stop near Galápos Beach, where you can breathe fresh air and relax for a while or jump in the water for a swim. The snorkeling equipment is also available for those who want to explore life underwater.
Sea-urchins, seahorses, octopuses, and several kinds of fish are extremely shy but with a little bit of luck, visible for those paying close attention. If you are unable to find them, look for shells on the seabed. They make for a great souvenir or something to remember by a day of “pure fun kissed by the sun”!
