The fact that you can sit down on a seat with a handle to hold on is great. We went in around the caves and along the coast simply beautiful. A quick dip in the Ocean and then out to sea at speed to find Dolphins. We must have went out a good 10km of the coast in the speed boat the beautiful hot summer breeze in our faces a lovely experience

A very pleasant trip. But there were no dolphins ... It was the second course that day and at the end he said that no one saw the dolphins, so going deep into the ocean it was obvious that we would not see them that day. The guide apologized and the matter was settled.

It was all beautiful. 1. Good organization before we started 2. Nice experts (Miguel and Daniel) on board, always ready for a joke and friendly treatment of everyone 3. Saw dolphins - the boat followed them very slowly and patiently 4. The coast is just gorgeous - Benagil cave very crowded but still stunning. 5. My kids enjoyed riding on water so fast TOP!
