Full description
After boarding 'Mananita', a traditional Portuguese boat with a rich history, you can admire the breathtaking views of the outstanding coast of Lagos and 'Ponta da Piedade'. The tour includes visiting a rock formation that dates back thousands of years, where the eye captures each unique feature of the rocks that has been sculptured throughout time by waves and marine life. The Mananita permits you to relax whilst navigating the crystal waters close to the cost line. After anchoring, you will hop onto a smaller boat which better enables you to view the caves and wildlife in greater detail. For the braver and more adventurous visitors, you may go for a swim or explore the outstanding marine life, with the option to snorkel also available.

    A pequena traineira tem charme. Boa a opção da limitação a 8 passageiros. Excelente a organização da viagem com a partição de dois grupos de 4 - um faz a viagem às grutas num pequeno bote e o outro fica na traineira para dar mergulhos e tomar banho naquelas águas límpidas e depois trocam. O condutor do pequeno bote que mostra as grutas é experiente e dá segurança.

    Lovely guides and only 9 of us on main boat, so half could swim and half were taken in around the caves, absolutely stunning, and great guide telling us the names for each place. Had a fabulous morning and half the price of my benagil boat yesterday. There was 60 of us on that boat, so photo opportunities were limited. P

    The unforgettable experience was totally worth it. I just missed diving and seeing some fish, I thought I would do it in a cave or another area and that I would be guided. The only thing they offered us was to jump into the sea to swim (in the middle of the ocean) and they would give you a diving scale if you wanted, but I didn't see anything really.
