BOOK YOUR ENCOUNTOUR

Fill in the below booking form and we will book your spot! Due to the nature of WILD dolphins we recommend a multiple launch dolphin encountour and a few nights stay in Ponta do Ouro to avoid disappointment. Our dolphins are wild and sometimes are not in the area or simply don’t feel like engaging. 

Please book for the first day/s you are here; if in the event we need to reschedule for calmer seas we have some days to work with.

Please note: Encountours are not suitable for the weak, fragile and unfit. The activity is a team effort, we all help push the boat into the water and support each other in the experience. You will be getting wet from the start. Under 5's, special needs & pregnancies by arrangement, these must be disclosed prior to booking! Non-swimmers are not permitted into the water, however boat based viewing is available. Encountours include safety briefing, code of conduct, tax, gear and on-line dolphin diary of your encountours. Extra’s include dolphin snorkel course & t-shirt.
