If you book this trip you won't regret it!
We had such an amazing time with Andre, very laid back, friendly and professional. He did his best to spot the dolphins and once we found them we spent extra time to watch them.
The last stop at the beach was the icing on the cake!

Thank you Andre for this incredible day!

Wonderful trip. Enjoyed watching the dolphins but next time I request that they jump a little higher so that we have more time to catch the experience on camera. The rest of the trip round the coastline was great. Had no idea that there were so many beautiful caves and places of interest. Definitely I would recommend the trip to anyone and the guides provided us with plenty of interesting information about dolphins and the coastline.

Everything was perfect!!!At arrival we were very welcomed, as along all trip. Catarina, our guide was awesome, very nice, attentive, always with a smile, interacting with everyone throughout the tour, explaining and giving tips. We loved the trip! to be lucky enough to see so many dolphins so close to us and for such a long time, as if they were accompanying us on the trip was simply wonderful!!

This was the perfect morning out. The weather was beautiful, the trip was perfectly timed we got to see the unique NRP Sagres that was anchored off the port of Sesimbra and many families of dolphins. André was a great guide and made us feel at ease during the whole trip.

What a wonderful experience. The team was extremely knowledgeable and friendly, answering any questions we had. You can tell that they truly love what they do. We saw so many dolphins both common dolphins and bottled nosed dolphins and they followed us practically through the entire journey! The boat is small enough that you really have a personal experience. Can't recommned Day Dream enough!

If you ever, ever are interested on seeing the beautiful Sesimbra, seeing the dolphins is a must do.
I was, and for that I have chosen "DayDream", and what a choice let me say that!
On board you can find all the security you need, and just enjoy the pleasent view that nature has to offer you, and besides that the incredible funny Captain André Fava, that besides guiding you in the best way possible is going to make you laugh with all is jokes.
What an incredible day! To repeat!

AMAZING experience !! After 30 min of boat we were able to see dolphins from very close!! They were even playing with our boat. We saw 2 different species of dolphins. Then we could swim in turquoise water near caves.
The tour guide was very nice and kind ! I definitely recommend this activity.

The boat trip made me like even more Sesimbra! Was amazing. I really enjoyed watching the dolphins, the small beaches and the coast. Actually the activity was longer and better than I was expecting and the staff was so cool, nice and communicative. Thanks a lot!
