From Portimão: 2.5-Hour Cruise to Benagil Caves
- Duration: 2.5 hours
This is an interesting and fun experience. The beaches and caves are really interesting to see from the sea, with nice photo opportunities. A couple of comments - it would be helpful if a smaller life jacket was provided for babies (the one provided to our 10 month old was still too big and we spent time fiddling with this and being concerned about her comfort and whether or not she could see much!); and the first part of the trip seemed a little rushed and difficult to take in all the info from the first few caves/beaches which all come quickly one after another. However, overall it's good value for money and we would happily recommend to others :) One observation for "GetYourGuide" though - the email confirmations sent out include incorrect information regarding the meeting point for this excursion, with the correct information coming from the text messages from the guide. This info is contradictory and confusing - the emails need updating.
Everything was great on the trip. The weather was great and we had lovely company. The skipper went out of his way to make it interesting and entertained us along the way - taking us close up to beaches, stopping a bit to watch kids jumping from the rocks, and generally creating a great atmosphere. He was in no rush and gave us time to take some great photos. I would certainly recommend this trip - it is affordable, a lovely outing for just under three hours, a great way to see the caves.
The Trip okay good. The Guide walk up and down the boat and told us the name of the beaches and caves. Unfortunately I was not able to see the inside of the Benagil Cave. Like others already mentioned, there is loud music, but luckily not to loud. Overall it was a nice time. One thing I really disliked, they served Nestea in plastic cups, hoped they have paper cups, since we passed so much plastic in the water.
Views were spectacular, one of the best trips in my life! Absolutely worth its price. The crew well-prepared. :) Waves were strong, so some may have felt a little seasick, take that in mind before booking.
Tanto Miguel como lorenzo súper atentos, te indican todos los lugares por los que pasas en diferentes idiomas. Durante la ruta ves las diferentes cuevas hasta llegar a cuevas bengagil. Imprescindible.
