Will take this trip again when I return to Algarve
Artur_A, Jun 2022
We had a great experience on this excellent trip. It was wonderful to see some of the beaches, trails and boardwalks from the ocean that we previously experienced on land. The cliffs and caves you cannot see from land were just beautiful. Rita and Vasco are great trip leaders and would highly recommend them! Artur
A great experience
Hamzah_P, Jun 2022
Great tour, driver and guide were super friendly and knew lots of history about the places we saw asking the way.
Be Prepared to feel like a Sardine!
shirlene_a, Mar 2022
The caves were amazing to see and I’m glad I went but the rest of the experience I could’ve done without. We were packed on the boat like sardines I could barely move my legs I had a leg cramp by the time I got back. also if you’re going to do this in the spring make sure you wear a warm jacket. Be prepared to be cramped and to get wet!
Response from Host, Mar 2022
Dear client, The type of boats we use is specially selected for the conditions in which we work. These are boats of the size that allow you to enter the caves and at the same time are as most comfortable as possible. That´s why you can´t expect the conditions that you have on a ferry or a yacht. All the professional companies that operate the cave tour with the entry inside the caves use this kind of boats. There are also the companies that operate the cost tour which means they just approach to the most of the caves and enter to the 2-3 biggest ones - in this situation they can allow themselves to have bigger and obviously more comfortable boats that take more passangers. Perhaps you should have decided to take this kind of tour. Our spaciality is the cave tour what we highlight in the description of what we offer. In the spring the waves are usually little big higher as the wind is strong and it happens that you can get little bit wet, which rarely happens in the summer.
Great trip, totally recommended
Carita_O, Sep 2021
Our family of 4 loved it, the operator team were so helpful in getting us there (picked us up as we were in the wrong place!). From the moment we got in the boat it was super enjoyable. Loved the caves , the trip abd Allo the insights from the guide. Thanks team , we would love to do it again when back in Portugal. 👍
Amazing and well worth it, once we got going!
Chris_M, Aug 2021
I just couldn't give it a full 5 stars because there was a bit of disorganization and confusion when we arrived at the meeting place. It was hard to find our guide and for some reason, they didn't know which boat we were taking, then eventually had us walk to another end of the Marina. It wasn't super far, but the heat that day was blistering. I don't know if this is normal operating procedure or just a fluke. That said, once we finally got sorted, it became a 5 star experience. Our guide and captain were terrific. They really did an excellent job explaining everything and making sure we got inside the caves and not miss any important points of interest. We even spotted some areas that we later visited and explored on our own. I really felt like we got the full Algarve coast experience. Despite the hiccup in the beginning, I would still highly recommend this experience.
Incredible crew and fun boat ride
Jaselle, Jul 2021
This was so much fun! The entire team were helpful and took us on a beautiful trip around the Algarve. We went into so many caves and we were able to swim in the ocean.
Great tour from Vasco
Eric_K, May 2021
Vasco bent over backwards to accommodate us. He was knowledgeable about the many different caves along the coast and gave us a great tour!
Perfect tour
Diana_L, Aug 2020
Enjoyed it so so much! The boat is very comfortable and modern. We entered into so many caves and saw amazing views. 2 hours is what you need to benefit the most from this beautiful piece of coast. Professional crew with great skills and sense of humor, very attentive and fun. Thank you!

Great pilot #vasco , he goes where no one does, for real. Great experience, the best 30€ spent in Algarve
Dragos_V, Nov 2019
Good experience & great pilot. We got lucky with great weather . Pilot #vasco excellent- he enters where no one does. 10 out of 10 for sea experience
Nice experience with an informative tour guide
mstreuf, Oct 2019
Very good explanations of the coast lines and caves we passed by or were going in. Worth the money. on our tour explained in French and English so that everybody could understand..
Boat trip to Benagil Caves
Robert_I, Oct 2019
We had an excellent trip with Seadventure tours. The captain and first mate gave an A+ tour, stopping at many caves son the way to Benagil. Highly recommended.
Fun Ride with Funny Crew
Amanda M, Sep 2019
Our tour guides were great and made sure to point out all the sites and the best points to take pictures. There were only 10 people on our boat which made it easy to see all the sites. Our captain and tour guide both were funny and making us laugh which really added to the experience. I would definitely recommend using this company.
Experiencia inolvidable.
La visita a las espectaculares cuevas y el baño en alta mar. Hay que reconocer que la gente que va en proa, aunque tiene las mejores vistas, también lo pasa peor por los saltos que da la lancha, debido a la velocidad que coge, lo digo porque mi mujer lo pasó un poco mal por eso.

mariaemilia_r, Jul 2022
O passeio e a equipe no barco foram muito legais. A paisagem é deslumbrante. Vale muito o passeio. Ficamos muito inseguros antes do passeio pois no local e horário agendado para sair não havia ninguém, só depois de eu ligar enviaram alguém. Foram gentis, mas por um momento achei que tivesse caído num conto.

Dieser Ausflug mit dem Speed Boot in Portimão war einmalig! Wir hatten so viel Spaß! Die Felsformationen waren wunderschön und Rita, unsere sympathische Reiseführerin, hat uns alle Strände und Dörfer erklärt Das klare Wasser ist unfassbar und die Grotten ein wahres Erlebnis. Unser Kapitän hat das Boot geschickt überall so hin manövriert, dass wir tolle Aufnahmen machen konnten. Ein paar Fotos haben wir euch angefangen. Beide Daumen hoch. Falls jemand in der Nähe ist, ist dieser Ausflug definitiv ein Muss!

Très belle découverte!
Lo_C, Aug 2021
Superbe découverte des caves et grottes de l’algarve. Nous avons choisis de faire le circuit de 2h et nous en avons pris pleins les yeux ! Une petit baignade en pleine mer avant le retour au port ! Merci au capitaine Vasco pour ses explications et multiples connaissances !
