Full description

Meet directly in the Marina of Lagos where the boat is moored and then begin your journey up the river and past one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, Praia Dona Ana. After, continue on to the beautiful caves and grottos of Lagos, including the "Love Cave" and the "Elephant" to name a few. Your trip will take place in a small group so that you and the other guests receive personal attention and a safety briefing. Be introduced to the caves and grottos by your guide. Get a brief overview of their history, as well as why they're named as they are. Then, journey back to the Marina in Lagos where you can relax and have a drink or food in one of the many cafe bars and restaurants on offer there. Select the 1.5-hour option to head a little further down the coast to take beautiful photos of the coastline, before returning to shore.

    Came out especially for us 2, cancelling his day off because he knew the weather was changing and it would be our last chance to get out on water for a week or more as Dec storms approached Portugal. He drove us right through great rock formations and gave us an historically informative tour. Learned Columbus was really a Portuguese man named Zagres who was just tossing Spain crumbs of what Portugal knew was was out there. Guide showed us where he would dive off cliffs as a foolish teenager. Recommended!

    We didn't think we would be able to take the trip as my wife is disabled with limited mobility but with the help of our excellent guide, it was made possible. Rui, ( hope its spelt right) went out of his way to make sure my wife was able to get in and out of the boat. The trip was stunning with a brilliant commentary from our guide with lots of information. We really enjoyed this trip, thank you.

    We had guide whose name was Pietro (not really sure how to spell it) and he was very nice and helpful. He spoke good English and really went the extra mile to make the experience the best it could be. He was also very helpful and recommended a restaurant for lunch as well as drove us there and gave us some tips for sight seeing. It was a very good experience overall, I would definitely recommend booking this tour.
