Full description
Join in on this 2-hour guided journey along the Algarve coastline to Benagil Cave. Much more than a simple boat trip, this fun and fantastic adventure will immerse you into the natural beauty of Portugal like you’ve never experienced before.   From the pier of Clube Naval de Portimão, begin your ride along the coastline, admiring its churches, castles, and beautiful caves. As you glide over the water, your guide will tell you (sometimes spooky) ancient stories and teach you about the history of the Arade River.   It’s also a possibility that you’ll see dolphins — all boats are equipped with VHF Radios synchronized with dolphin-watching vessels. If these breathtaking animals are spotted within a 3-mile radius, the boat will go to their location.   When you arrive at the Benagil Cave, you’ll be blown away by its beauty. A naturally formed hole at the top lets the sunlight filter down to the sandy beach below. Listen to the echoes of the wind and let yourself be fulfilled and calmed by your surroundings.

Miguel and Paulo (I think that was his name) were AMAZING! We had such a great time cruising down the Algarve coast. They were friendly, knowledgeable and did everything they could to make sure we had a wonderful time. Definitely book with them!! I would definitely come back with more friends.

Friendly guides, well prepared, everything went well as planned. They asked before if all was ok or if we needed any more information or help finding the meeting point. We started in time and the boat was nice. The guides are friendly and funny and explained everything. The tour along the coast is really cool and the view is impressing. I think it is a must see - those rocks and caves from the waterside. We had a really good time.

It was an incredible experience from start to finish. As soon as I made the purchase, I received a careful email, the day before the tour I received an SMS with the location of the meeting point and the day a phone call asking if we needed help to get to the place. The tour was beautiful, the 6 pm schedule is perfect, watching the sunset when you return is wonderful. The caves are beautiful, the whole setting perfect !!
