What people are saying about Benagil

wszystko super. nie było problemu z przełożeniem na późniejsza godzine z powodu opóźnienia z dojazdem. udało się zobaczyć delfinki, pan kapitan zabawny. gorąco polecam

In time pick up, with clear and good instructions about the bodyboard usage. I found it's way less time - 40 mins to spend in the cave. Generally, good value for money

Very friendly, funny and considerate guide and pilot (boat). Thanks to them, we had a very pleasant tour. I highly recommend this agency.

Great boat trip with beautiful views, the cave of Benagil itself is a bit disappointing. Definitely worth the money

Wonderful staff, helped our daughter feel comfortable with her first time.
