Full description
After a short introduction and safety briefing, find a comfortable spot on the boat and get ready to cruise down the historic river. Pass the idyllic fishing village of Ferragudo, the castle and the old fortress as you head into the open sea. Cruise from Portimão to Leixão do submarino, past towering cliffs and pristine beaches. Stop at the caves with plenty of time for photos. Afterwards, swim and relax in a secluded bay and work on your tan. If you’re feeling adventurous, swim to a quiet beach. Hold on tight for the high-speed return trip and take in views of the coastline. With a bit of luck you’ll spot some dolphins on the way.

This was a highlight of our trip to Algarve. Excellent boat, really great, easy going captain and the guide. I recommend taking it early in your stay as you’ll get exposed to a number of beaches you might decide to visit during your stay. The boat has a toilet, which is a plus compare to other boat options.

This was our first experience of this kind and it could not go any better. Joao and Andrea were very very nice and kind, they made us feel special and took us through all the details of a hidden world waiting for anybody in Portimao. The boat was great, fast and powerful, also it was just big enough so that it can go inside of almost all the caves. Great experience, recommend it to anybody. Thank you SeaSiren

Nice speed boat, very pleasant atmosphere

Super guides, relaxed and interestingly designed. The boat was super modern, clean and had a lot of power. It was much more pleasant than the other boats. We had the opportunity to bathe in the sea and jump into the water. Did not need to wear life jackets, was only instructed where they are. Super satisfied, it was definitely worth the higher price.
