Wild Dolphin watching

Wild Dolphin watching

They’re friendly, cute and crazy about children.

They’re a family of resident dolphins that live in the Sado estuary called “bottlenose“, a very common specie of dolphins.

We all love to see dolphins and for many people the only way to do this is by visiting an aquarium.

In Troia and in Setubal you have the opportunity of seeing them in the wild all year round.

Each dolphin has been identified and has a name. There are at the moment 4 baby dolphins, 6 teenagers and 18 adults.

And how are they identified?

Using the appearance of dorsal fins to identify dolphins in the wild.

Like a human fingerprint, there are no two dorsal fins that are identical.

Each has its own unique shape, height, thickness, and notches.

They are very happy to interact with people so if you’re on a boat trip you might get the chance of having them making you a visit.

They’re so happy to see people who when they’re at surface they like to show what they can do like graceful jumps, jumping anywhere from 15 to 30 feet above the water.

They use side-flopping and upside-down obtaining  communicate motivation.

They are a font of serenity , uplifting the spirits of everyone around.

Don’t miss the chance to visit this lovely family of wild dolphins when you’re visiting Setubal.

Dolphin Watching Boat Tours

There are several boat tours to watch dolphins on the Sado estuary.

You can choose to only watch the dolphins or visit other locations by boat on the same day.

A great day for all the family!
