Full description

Discover the Benagil Caves on a guided boat tour from the Algarve. Take in the coastal views as you sail, look out for dolphins, and explore the interiors of several coastal caves, including Paraiso, Carvoeiro, and Benagil.

Begin your trip to the caves of the Algarve Coast. Explore the coastal caves ranging from Portimao to Caneiros, Paraiso, Carvoeiro, Benagil and Praia da Marinha. The trip will start on the Arade River at Clube Naval Portimao, from where you can view the landscape, Ferragudo Castle, and numerous beaches. After setting out to the open sea you will become witness to various rock formations and more than 20 caves. You will be able to journey inside the caves during your tour, which will provide you with the opportunity to take plenty of unique photos. If you are lucky on the day, you will also have the chance to see dolphins. You will of course be welcome to stop for a swim in the sea if you wish, and your guide will be explaining your surroundings for the duration of your tour. Once your tour has concluded, you will disembark at Portimao.

The best tour I have ever done in my life! From the beginning the communication with the guide and then the activity was impressive, he stopped in all the caves, we bathed in front of the Praia da Marina and even went in search of dolphins because he detected them nearby, in addition to his explanations and that he left us on the beach of Carvoeiro so as not to have to return to Portimao and thus start our Trail through the Setes Valles Suspensos. It was an incredible tour!

We really liked this boat trip! The employees were very friendly and we saw lots of beautiful caves and (hidden) beaches . I would definitely recommend this tour. It’s a must when you visit the Algarve. Just one tip, when you go there by car make sure you arrive there earlier. It was very difficult to find a parking spot.

All very good, I just think they could go and tell more about the places, some history. However, we were also a difficult group and so it may not have facilitated the conversation. We didn't see dolphins and it lasted more than 2 hours. What is good. Excellent price/quality. The group also mentions that the boat could have another comfort for the back (backrest). It was great for me. Congratulations on the service.
