What people are saying about Benagil

I took an Uber from Tivoli in Vilamoura and got to portimao for 3pm. My previous bookings for the boat ride in Vilamoura were cancelled due to bad weather. I was so glad I could make this day before my flight back to UK. Crew members Rita, Hugo and Ricardo we’re absolutely amazing. Rita had an amazing sense of humour and made us laugh so much. She kept making sure I was okay and asked if I needed anything. Hugo and Ricardo helped us step into the boat demonstrating good ways and bad ways to get it which was funny. Lol We took some amazing pictures and was fascinated by the history of portimao guided by Rita. On the way back the music was perfect, It was a vibe and really allowed me to be in my zone and experience the return back to the port.

My partner and I had a wonderful time on our boat trip. We had the first trip in the morning which meant it was more quiet than usual. We had the boat and all the caves to ourselves for the whole trip. The tour started at the pier and took us all the way to the Benagil Caves. On the way there though, we were shown many other beautiful caves and formations in the cliffs. Miguel was our guide. He told us all about the rock formations as well as some history of this region of Portugal. The crew was very welcoming and made our trip comfortable and fun. I highly recommend choosing this Tour!

I loved this tour. It was the coolest thing I did in Portugal. Rita, my guide and Ricardo, the captain were kind enough to follow through with my scheduled tour even though I was the only one who booked. Rita was very knowledgeable about the different beaches, names of the caves and surrounding towns. She took pictures for me since I was traveling alone. Very happy with this experience and would highly recommend to others.

Nuno was a great guide! Engaging and specracular boat trip. Was well organized with clear instructions.

Even though we didn't see the dolphins it was great! Thanks!
