What people are saying about Carvoeiro

We did an afternoon Boat trip at around 2:30pm, the weather was about 31 degrees! It was an amazing day for the boat, it still gets a little chilly out at sea as you’re going so fast in the wind but once you stop at the caves it’s much warmer! We unfortunately didn’t see any dolphins, however it’s never guaranteed! Apparently they show themselves more in the mornings. I highly recommend the trip, even if you don’t see dolphins it’s great fun! The guys on the boat are so friendly & helpful! It was an amazing experience, the caves are stunning!! The only thing I would say to make it a better experience is, if you could stop off for a swim! Me and my boyfriend would have loved to of done that, that’s the only thing I’d say that would have made it even better.

Fantastic experience- well worth it. Having lived in Carvoeiro fir the last 6 months it was great to see the areas I love from a boat. Our guide Rita and the Captain Carlos were fantastic.

I really enjoyed this tour! Caves were beautiful and the guys took very good care of us. Recommended!

Amazing experience you must to go visit caves and saw dolphins
