    Highlight of the trip
    Zainab_H, Aug 2022
    This was truly a once in a lifetime experience. The colour of the water was mesmerising it was turquoise and soo beautiful. The caves were so nice and our tour guide Deborah did an amazing job at explaining the history of the rock formations. The best part was the dolphins, we were lucky enough to see them and they were so majestic it was the highlight of the trip. The price for 2.5 hrs is so worth it . Highly recommend !
    Great boat trip!

    This was a fantastic boat trip along Portugal’s stunning coastline, including the Benagil caves. Topped off by going way out to sea to see loads of dolphins!

    Fun and amazing experience. Ally and Joel were very knowledgeable and friendly. Also, with a small boat, we were able to see the caves and dolphins up close.

So happy great day. Do it.
    Boat tour with the best guides
    Diego_M, Jul 2022
    Arno and his collaborator were simply perfect in their work. They created a very pleasant atmosphere on the boat from the very beginning and the tour was very interesting. They also had an enormous knowledge about this region and would explain us every detail of what we saw. We managed to see dolphins (many of them) shortly after starting the tour, and then we visited the beautiful caves in Benagil. At the end of the tour, our guides gave us some really interesting advice about places to visit, which we found very kind and helpful. My girlfriend and I are extremely satisfied with this experience, which even exceeded our expectations.
    Don’t miss this!
    Joe_C, Jul 2022
    Fun and exciting. The whole family enjoyed! Makes a big difference to Go into the caves instead of seeing them from afar. Thank you to the crew for such a good time!

    Our guides were so kind and accommodating. They made sure our kids felt safe and had a wonderful experience.
    Dora_O, Jul 2022
    Amazing tour that took us into the caves. Our 2 tour guides were informative, funny and friendly. We saw dolphins close up to the boat and they didn’t rush us to keep going.
    5 star. Don’t miss it.
    Jonathan_H, Jul 2022
    Excellent, knowledgeable and friendly, boat is very stable even at speed (it’s quick) Wondered about the boat compared to bigger and jet boats but perfect size as you can go right inside the caves. Saw dolphin pod👍👍

    The dolphins.Of course it was not sure that we would spot them, but luck was on our side that day. We spotted two species that day.

    Allie is a great tour guide-- very personable, friendly and professional. I'm usually timid about being near the water but she me very comfortable.
