    Fun, fast, and beautiful, A great way to visit and see the coastline! Martin was a wonderful guide who speaks just about every language, he was very interesting and personable. If you want a thrilling ride but also a slow meandering look at the cliffs and hidden caves this is the tour for you. This tour goes the extra mile, literally, taking you out to see/sea the dolphins ( which we saw a large pod of). An added plus was our boat driver seemed to be very aware of other boats and people in the water while a few other boats we saw were not as in control of their boats. This is a great way to get up close and personable with the amazing cliff in Southern Portugal .

    Highly recommended. The experience was very good. We were with a baby of almost 2 years. While you wait they give you a coffee or a bottle of water. The speedboat trip was a lot of fun, we saw many dolphins and they show you all the caves, entering many of them with the boat. They briefly explain the area you are in without too much explanation, for our perfect taste.

    We saw the dolphins approaching the boat and the trip along the very beautiful coast, as well as the explanations of the guide. The pity is that it could not be lowered into the Benagil cave, it can be seen from the boat. Otherwise all fantastic.
