What people are saying about Benagil

It was just amazing. The Guids were very helpfull with their instructions and made their job awesome. We were with our 5 years old boy and felt secure all the time. It was really stunning to see the caves in that way and to be that near which wouldn‘t be possible with a boat. We ride throug small caves and it was breathtaking. This will not be the last time. well done guys.

Great boat trip! The boat (catamaran) is brand new and runs exclusively on solar power. The ride is pleasantly quiet, calm and shady. Ideal for families. The crew is very nice and accommodating and speaks good English (and of course Portuguese). If you stay at the Tivoli Marina Hotel, it's just around the corner. Full marks and with the best recommendations.

Super day, magnificent hike in 7 hanging valleys, and very pleasant boat trip. And above all a top guide! Thank you Vasco for taking the time to share your knowledge and for answering our questions always with a touch of humor. I highly recommend !

The guides were a lot of fun, we enjoyed the experience so much, we entered to all the caves, Benagil cave included and it was not exhausting at all.

Great experience if you haven't been to the Benagil Cave yet!
