Full description
Climb aboard the Leãozinho for a 3.5-hour day cruise leaving from the Albufeira Marina in the morning. Set your sails westward and head into the Atlantic towards the sandy shores of San Rafael, Castelo and Praia da Gale. Stare out towards the majestic cliffs and see the rock chapel Senhora da Rocha perched over the sea. Shortly after passing the fishermen at Armacao de Pera, arrive at the stunning beach and sapphire blue waters of Praia de Benagil. Here, have the option to explore the enormous sea cave, indulge in a warm swim in the crystal clear Atlantic, or have a go at fishing. Satiate your thirst at the onboard Pirate Bar, where you can sip on a cool and refreshing beverage of beer, soft drinks and water, and relish the sparkling blue sea. As you motor back to Albufeira, stay alert for dolphins whose fins are often seen racing along the ship.

We unfortunately picked a day that the sea was quite choppy, so sea sickness ensued with the majority of our party obviously through no fault of the crew who were really friendly and helpful throughout. As the conditions weren't we were unable to gain access to caves, some of us did however get to have a nice dip in the sea and the views of the coast from the boat were incredible. Would recommend on a calmer day.

We just did this tour and it was fine. The boat was beautiful, the crew was nice and the beers were lovely. Only downside was that we didn’t see a lot of the insides of the caves. The smaller boat brought us a bit closer for like 5 minutes but that was about it. The views during the tour were amazing though and the shipper told us some interesting facts.

Out of this world!

The crew couldn’t have been nicer, and our 5 year old even got to steer the boat! It was very quiet as late October, but that meant it felt really personal. Sea had huge swells, which was exciting, though not for the travel-sick. I am someone who suffers from travel sickness in a car, so I did have some woozy moments, but found standing and moving my legs with the boat worked really well to settle me. My husband and 5 year old were totally fine, though our 2 year old was sick, but perhaps that’s not a surprise! The crew were lovely about it though and dealt with it swiftly. The whole experience felt like a real adventure, and I was so glad we were on this boat and not one of the more modern ones, which were really crowded. We won’t forget this in a long time!
