    Amazing trip...saw wonderful coastline and all the Caves along the coast not just Benagil. We were able to go far into the caves with the speedboat. Kids loved the boat as it was fast and thrilling for them. Both the Captain and the guide were very nice and knowledgeable and were able to give details about the different caves in multiple languages (we spoke English).

    Great tour, starting in Portimão means you get a really nice amount of time on the boat, enjoying the scenery of the Algarve and fun just being on a fairly quick boat! The boat was new, as were all the life jackets. The crew, Mauro and Andre spoke multiple languages well and the main thing was they knew what they were doing driving the boat-very safe and in fact I was really impressed how well the controlled the boat in the waves by the caves! I hadn’t really thought about that bit-but they were clearly very experienced.

    Fun for all ages! We (2 adults, 1 youth, and 1 young toddler) went on the 2-hour speedboat ride and LOVED every minute of it. I highly recommend this for passengers who tend to get seasick (the speed of the boat prevents rocking) and for parents of young kids (my toddler was riveted and never got bored). While on this boat ride, my husband and I snapped some of the prettiest photos from our entire vacation. Plan on arriving early and call ahead for meeting point. The meeting point that printed out on our vouchers was not correct. When we called, we were given the correct meeting point adjacent to a parking lot with free parking. Also, if you are bringing a baby, call ahead to see if they have tiny life vests. I didn’t see any on board, but I honestly didn’t look too closely because we always travel with our own.
