Everything that was promised in the booking information was delivered including a pod of dolphins. Victor and Kevin were most attentive and worked very hard to ensure we enjoyed the trip. One complaint. Our seats at the back of the boat were great and provided a very good vantage point. Unfortunately we discovered that it was also a smoking area and we were constantly bothered by the smell of cigarettes. I was very disappointed that on a four hour trip on a boat the size of ours allowed smoking at all. Overall a very interesting and informative trip.

min. Be there 90 minutes before the start! Finding a parking space and the kiosk for the tickets takes time. Murphy's Cafe/Bar is then right at the meeting point for checking into the boat. Small welcome drink to welcome you. The boat is surprisingly big. Our guide immediately started with all sorts of explanations, from the history to the geology of the bays. Drinks are available at the bar, toilet facilities at the rear. The boat language is English. It goes west along the coast. The highlight is certainly the grotto of Benagil. Our skipper drives directly into the grotto. On the way back we meet dolphins and the skipper turns and stops the machine. The friendliness and helpfulness of the entire crew is to be emphasized. Some passengers have problems with the sun and ship movement. So you shouldn't go on the ship with a hangover and have eaten something beforehand. 3 hours is long!

The trip is amazing, I would easily recommend this to anyone. The crew were so helpful and informative and the sights are truly stunning. If you get the chance sit on the back of the boat as you have more freedom and you can sit on the edge whilst drinking your favourite beverage and taking in the sights.
