  • "Beautiful caves and it was wonderful to see them from where we were - on a boat The commentaries was hardly audible as we sat outside on the deck but the beautiful caves themselves are worth the journey and time" See review

Trip was well organised...

Trip was well organised and enjoyable. However we expected to go into the caves and explore as it was said in the description but we didn’t so that was the only slightly disappointing thing. But overall it was great and would recommend.

Best way to see and know the Algarve coast.

If you only have one full day in this area I truly recommend this 3 hour tour. You see everything from the comfort of a nice catamaran. The guide and crew were very informative and helpful. This was the highlight of our two night stay in the Algarve.

Nice boat trip with great staff
Brd_K
, Oct 2021
It would have been nice to stop at Benagil beach to be able to get proper photos, as this is the main part of the tour. We stopped for a swim in the middle of the sea so we couldn’t let our son out so not ideal for kids.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Dear customer, Thank you very much for your feedback! For safety reasons, we don't allow passengers to get off the boat inside the caves as there are always many boats inside and it may not be safe to do so. We hope to see you again soon! Best regards, AlgarExperience Team

The whole experience was amazing! João, Emma and Dario are a fantastic crew! We didn’t buy the top deck access but we loved it down there anyway. On the way, Dario the captain steered the ship to chase some dolphins very close, the highlight of the trip!
