What people are saying about Benagil

Wonderful calm seas today to explore the caves. No dolphins sighted but no matter. The journey itself is amazing with the wind in your hair (gets chilly - beware!) and the beautiful caves and dramatic coastline. Highly recommended if you like a windy ride and some sea adventure

Tres bien pour des personnes qui apprecient les secousses liees aux vagues car la mer etait agitée. Pas destinée aux femmes enceintes ou fragile du dos. Conduite du bateau tres professionnelle et bonne ambiance. Tres sympathique ! Nous recommendons.

Organization at a very good level. It was great and fun. The service on the catamaran came out great from the seasickness of passengers, but only a few ... The views are breathtaking. See for yourself.

We had a great morning exploring the caves and learning some great information about the region (more than our travel rep!) Our guide was called Pedro, well worth the visit. Excellent!

Thanks to the SeaAlgarve team! This is an activity that will amaze you!! The team is great and attentive, thank you to them for the sympathy and professionalism! I really recommend!
