Me and my partner did this trip during covid, therefore had to wear a mask for the whole journey, it was a bit of a pain but had to be done. All the crew were friendly, although you couldn't really hear what they where saying about the landscape over the tannoy. As it was a catamaran we could get really close up into the caves which was great. I was a little bit disappointed that we didn't have longer to swim and I don't think the place we stopped to swim was the best, it was very far out, not near any of the caves so we couldn't swim into them to explore. The prosecco on the way back was a nice touch.
It was a fantastic trip! We got to see the dolphins and all the beautiful caves. Benagil was beyond beautiful. The only thing I was slightly disappointed about is that we didn’t get to stop anywhere because we were told that we would take a small break at one of the beaches along the algarve near the caves. Also, we only stayed at the benagil cave for a short time, would’ve been amazing if it was for longer. Despite that, wonderful trip!
This activity is a must do in Algarve. The Caves are an absolute beauty, We could not see the dolphins and we chase them for about 45min, it was just bad luck. My tour was in English and Portuguese which I appreciated as my Portuguese is really bad . If I go back to Algarve would do the tour again and again. The tour last 2,5 hours and it is more than enough.
The guides were fantastic, very informative and attentive, even offered us jackets since it was particularly chilly that day. We even managed to see dolphins and Mink whales! Amazing experience!
What a great experience. Crew very friendly, amazing views, white wine was lush and alcohol in general very fairly priced! Great day out with the opportunity to swim if you so wish.
