What people are saying about Caramujeira

I highly recommend, super guide Jorge, very attentive, made us discover unusual places of beauty, including caves from beaches overlooking the sea! We thank Jorge again for his kindness, taking pictures of us in unique places and sending them to us graciously

Best decision to explore the caves with the pirate ship. The ship looks a lot and after we are along the coast with some information from the brilliant captain, we were able to explore the caves with the dinghies. Thank you for the great trip!

In time pick up, with clear and good instructions about the bodyboard usage. I found it's way less time - 40 mins to spend in the cave. Generally, good value for money

Great experience for adults and children alike! Great boat and the boat allows you to enter several small caves! I really recommend this activity

Highly recommended! Great pirate ‍☠️ ship! Nice crew! Great caves seen
