Responsible Dolphin Watching
Thanks to the resident bottlenose dolphins population and our experienced crew, dolphins are spotted on over 95% of tours! If you do not see dolphins, you can come again for free. Our team gives you a maximum level of assurance that your dolphin sighting has minimal impact on the animals. In the presence of dolphins it is essential to fully respect international recommendations and rules of the local code of conduct, in order to minimize disturbance. Silence on board is requested and the maximum duration of observations is 30 min.
Two underwater viewing rooms are accessible throughout the trip. After seeing the dolphins, we look for areas of adequate depth and visibility that allow us to see the seabed.

Do we always see dolphins? What is tour success rate?
Our success rate is very high (about 95% of our tours) as the dolphin population lives in Setubal Bay permanently. Anyway, there are a few days when dolphins are not seen by any vessel.

If your tour is one of the rare days when dolphin spotting is not possible, you will receive a free voucher to reschedule a new date. Dolphin Bay guarantees in this way that by purchasing a ticket you will definitely see dolphins.
