Full description
Explore the famous caves of the Algarve and try to spot dolphins from a 16-meter-long powerboat. Your trip starts at the Marina of Albufeira, where you'll set off along the coastline of the south of Portugal. Pass by the the areas of Galé, Senhora da Rocha, and Marinha until you reach Benagil cave and Carvoeiro. Marvel at the unique rock formations, then enter and explore the most famous caves. Benefit from the knowledgeable crew, who can tell you detailed information about the area. Then, cruise away from the coast to look for dolphins playing in the wild. If the weather permits, there will be a quick stop for a refreshing swim in the crystal-clear ocean, before the experienced crew takes you safely back to the Albufeira Marina.

    We had a wonderful boat trip! very well organised. Getting on the boat was orderly. We felt very safe. Staff were friendly and attentive. They even offered people on board coats if they were too cold. We saw the dolphins. I am usually sea suck but this boat was very comfortable, I took an anti sickness tablet and had no issues :)

    This tour was well worth the money. It delivered what it promised. Priced right as well. Saw dolphins and were lucky enough to see a couple of them jump right out of the water which is unusual. Caves were as promised. Also was able to take a quick dip in the water. Only about 5 of us did so but hey they missed out on that part of the offering. Guides were very good and provided good information.

    Excursion at the top which corresponds to what is indicated. We were lucky enough to see the dolphins. The caves are beautiful to see unfortunately a lot of people we get as close as possible (to be done again with another means of transport to be able to stop there).
