Full description
Meet your guide at the pier in Portimao and listen to a short safety briefing. Then, board the RIB speed boat to start the journey out to sea. On your way, the guide will tell you stories about the Arade River and the Algarve region. Admire views of the Fort of Santa Catarina, the Ferragudo castle, as well as a quaint fishing village along the coast. See many dramatic caves and cliffs as you travel along the coast. Keep a lookout, as dolphins can often be seen navigating the waters here. If they are spotted and are less than 3 miles away, the boat will head in their direction so you can get a closer look at these playful mammals. Then, head inside the famous Benagil Caves, which are only reachable by boat. Marvel at the naturally-formed holes at the top, which let the sunlight filter down to the sandy beach below in a beautiful display. Listen to the echoes and the sound of the wind and let yourself be moved by these impressive natural surroundings. On the way back to the marina, the boat will make a brief stop so you can go swimming.

    Booked a last minute tour with this amazing company. Everything was confirmed via txt and email with thorough details on how to get there (pictures and location details) which was very much appreciated. I am terrible with names so I just wanted to express my sincere gratitude to everyone at Atlantic tours who made this trip a very memorable and informative tour. The tour guide and helmswoman were super helpful and friendly. I Highly recommend booking an early tour as there are less people on the boat (think there was 6 in total) and the sea and caves are quiet, so no other boats are in the way. Thank you

    Miguel and Paulo (I think that was his name) were AMAZING! We had such a great time cruising down the Algarve coast. They were friendly, knowledgeable and did everything they could to make sure we had a wonderful time. Definitely book with them!! I would definitely come back with more friends.

    Friendly guides, well prepared, everything went well as planned. They asked before if all was ok or if we needed any more information or help finding the meeting point. We started in time and the boat was nice. The guides are friendly and funny and explained everything. The tour along the coast is really cool and the view is impressing. I think it is a must see - those rocks and caves from the waterside. We had a really good time.
