Wines and Dolphins in the Wild

In the Sado Estuary lies one of the rare sedentary populations of bottlenose dolphins in Europe and one of the most important in the world. With a population estimated at about 30 individuals, it is a privilege to see them evolve in the calm waters of the estuary. This tour takes place in one of the most beautiful places in Portugal, Setúbal Bay, also known as Dolphin Bay, which belongs to the restricted club of the "Most Beautiful Bays of the World".

You will get to see and feel:

Start this adventure with the visit to 2 wineries. You will get to know and experience the famous Muscat from Setubal and taste a wide range of wine profiles from the regular still wines, until the famous fortified wine of the region: the White and Purple Moscat. You will hear about the producers family stories and the way they feel proud about their accomplishments. The versatily exists not only on the wines but also on the way they are produced: from hand picking to machine harvest, from foot stumping, to cement deposit and stainless steel fermentation and finally oak, chestnut or mahogany wine aging. The stage is set for a magnificent day.

Lunch will be served to you on a restaurant overlooking the quite deep blue waters of the Setubal bay, considered by many authors, as one of the most beautiful in the world.

In the afternoon we have another surprise for you: a catamaran ride on an idilic scenatio together with the delightfull dolphins.  This community of dolphins the Sado river estuary is the only sedentary and resident in the country, one of the few that exist worldwide.

The observation of this little world where they play, hunt and spend most of your time, lasts approximately two and a half hours.

Join us to look for them in their natural habitat, in the fulness of their freedom and feel closely the magic of their joy and their games and performances of aquatic choreography.
