If you want out of the tourist trap: Do this! Hugo was my guide and I totally recommend him. Next time I'm here I will do this again, with Hugo. Learned a lot and had a great time. This is not about money to him but showing the country he obviously loves. He also gave me two recipes and showed me a good place to eat. He almost cancelled but when I told him I could not reschedule I got a private tour. Again: Just do this! Totally recommended.
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!
The caves were beautiful and absolutely made this trip for me. I did get a bit wet but it wasn't bad - glad I brought a light jacket as it does get a bit cold on the ocean. You can tuck a day bag under the seat but I wouldn't recommend brining much. We didn't manage to find any dolphins, but the time on the water and the shoreline were absolutely worth the experience. Lovely guide and driver as well.
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.
It was very cool to see the dolphins in the wild, we almost didnt see any but we managed to catch a group and they swam beside us. We also came across a species of whale(theyre not lot large and they were very shy so just caught a glimpse) Awesome! (take note: I didnt wear a jacket, IT GET VERY COLD OUT A SEA SO MAKE SURE YOU DO :'D).
