Overview

Sealife is a small company that has specialised in dolphin watching on the Atlantic Ocean. We are operating from the Marina of Lagos in the Algarve, the southern district of Portugal. From April through November we organise ocean safaris onboard our rigid inflatable boats, accompanied by our Marine Biologists, with the objective of showing you wild dolphins in their natural environment and/or other ocean wildlife such as birds, whales, porpoises, turtles, sunfishes or even sharks.
