Full description
After boarding, begin by receiving a full briefing on your safety and comfort for your cruise. From there, hit the open water and navigate the coast off of Rio Arade, the village of Ferragudo, medieval castles, and the Atlantic Ocean. Cruising east, pass Carvoeiro, which contains the famous rock formation of Algar Seco. Arriving to the lighthouse of Alfanzina, transfer to a small boat to visit the inside of the local caves which run from the lighthouse to Marinha Beach. These caves include the famous cathedral cave of Benagil. Returning to the boat, take a dip to swim in the enticing crystal clear water which surrounds you. On your return journey, be on the lookout for dolphins, which are regularly spotted in this area.

unfortunately no dolphin visible. explanations in English and French incomprehensible (even if not essential). beware of seasickness for the most sensitive: even on calm seas, the smell of fuel in certain areas of the boat and particularly at certain times (especially during transfers to the boats). rather benevolent cabin crew, especially with children. nice excursion, even if too little time in the benagil cave (no descent on the beach), not surprising given the influx of boats despite the covid-19.

We had a great trip with this lovely and comfortable pirateship, our little boys loved it too. The trip in the small boat to the caves was a bit short but fun and beautiful. Thanks!
