Full description
After boarding, begin by receiving a full briefing on your safety and comfort for your cruise. From there, hit the open water and navigate the coast off of Rio Arade, the village of Ferragudo, medieval castles, and the Atlantic Ocean. Cruising east, pass Carvoeiro, which contains the famous rock formation of Algar Seco. Arriving to the lighthouse of Alfanzina, transfer to a small boat to visit the inside of the local caves which run from the lighthouse to Marinha Beach. These caves include the famous cathedral cave of Benagil. Returning to the boat, take a dip to swim in the enticing crystal clear water which surrounds you. On your return journey, be on the lookout for dolphins, which are regularly spotted in this area.

Wife and four-year-old son and I really enjoyed the experience. Make sure you bring food obviously as they’re not lying when they say they have limited snacks available… Limited is a very true representation. This however is not at all negative just a reminder that it is three hours. Would definitely go back and this is highly recommended.

Great time. Cruise made at 5 with our 3 children from 3 to 9 years old. The pirate ship is very beautiful. The transfer to the small boat for the visit of the caves is done in complete safety thanks to a great crew on board. Very caring staff (blankets...). The discovery of the magnificent caves remains an unforgettable moment. Excellent value. Thank you !
