Amazing experience
, Jun 2021
The guides were very knowledgeable, each time we came to a cave, the guide would take the time to explain the history of the cave to each of the people on the trip in their own language. We saw the dolphins which swam right next to the boat with one even being quite playful, the guides were really good in spotting them and let us have plenty of time to take photos! Highly recommmend!

Excellent excursion

It was a great trip. We were able to see many different caves and rocks, including going inside the Benagil cave. We spent a good amount of time watching dolphins, some of them were jumping off the water just next to the boat.
Amazing tour and lovely staff

I loved the speed of the boat and our visit to the caves but I wish I could hop off the boat in Benagil cave to take nice photos. The staff was amiable. The last part of our tour was watching the dolphins which was an amazing experience. I’d give 5 starts if we could hop off in Benagil cave, other than that, the tour was amazing.
Great Experience

Fantastic experience. Really enjoyed this. I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone else to do if they are visiting the algarve.
Up close and personal with the caves

Great afternoon. Bit chilly - but expected for January. No dolphins, but the caves were spectacular and worth the trip.
Great morning tour

Fabulous boat tour. Wonderful to see the dolphins swimming alongside our boat, one with it's young. Entered the caves and sandy coves which were beautiful. Well worth the price!
It is worth!

We didn't expect to see so many dolphins! Caves are amazing. Great fun in the boat. Nice small group and guide
Great Caves - But no Dolphins or Dip
, Jul 2018
We went June 29 2:30- saw no dolphins. I thought the caves were worth the cost and looked at the dolphins as a bonus. We got to the marina early and I stopped in the booking office to confirm we had the right place before we had some lunch. The girl I spoke to said we would be stopping for a dip in the ocean and I recalled I read that on my booking paperwork. I pulled out the paperwork I had and read that we were suppose to stop for a dip. So 3 of the 4 of of our party ran to a little shop in the marina and bought swim suits (100€) total. None of us even like the suits we bought. Then the boat never stopped for the dip! At that point we had already taken off the tags and put them on so we could not return them. I am really disappointed. The caves are awesome and the boat is small enough to go into some of them. I wish it was longer. The boat holds 11 passengers and one guide, not counting the driver. You straddle the seats and there is no seat belt. I would not recommend this to someone who has small children, is pregnant or has difficulty hanging on. The boat goes really fast and you HAVE to hold on. Do not bring a hat. Bring sun glasses. They provide jackets, which is nice because we got wet.
