Amazing experience! Really got to explore all of the coast and see the beautiful caves. The crew was so lovely and friendly! And there were so many fun activities to do when we arrived at the location! We also stopped in a quiet area which was so peaceful and fun.

Fantastic trip on a big catamaran! Booking was easy and everything was as advertised. Very nice and helpful crew on board. Gathered indescribable impressions, the Benagil caves are more than worth seeing, the atmosphere was great! With Portuguese music sounds we left the port, there were also drinks on board. Later from the boat we had the opportunity to swim in the Atlantic. Everything calm and relaxed in a nice atmosphere. We will be back next year and will book again! Thanks to the entire crew for an unforgettable day!

This was an amazing trip that exceeded expectations. Sunbathing on the Catamaran trampoline while watching the beautiful scenery was so wonderful and my first paddle boarding experience was great fun. All the staff were brilliant and we look forward to doing a similar trip when we are back next year.
