AMAZING! Do not leave Portugal without going on this boat tour. Our captain was amazing. So friendly and fun, and his boating skills were so impressive! I couldn’t believe some of the places he took us. We literally said, “No way are we seriously going in there?!” about 10 times ☺️ That being said, we always felt 100% safe with him and the scenery is absolutely breathtaking. Yes, that sounds cheesy but once you see it you’ll agree!

Luis greeted us at the meeting point. He must be the owner because he was great. Funny and extremely helpful. Made us feel very welcomed. He introduced us to Jorge our captain and Inez. They were very friendly. Jorge was a professional navigating the boat through the caves and around the rocks. Thank you so much.

Great excursion. Everything about it was great. The crew did a great job-Ricardo was an excellent guide. Taking the boat to the place to kayak was wonderful, as was the opportunity to go for a swim after the kayaking portion. Would highly recommend this trip.

Thoroughly enjoyable trip. Kayaking around the grottos were great, a little hectic at times though with the amount of tourists. Loved jumping off the boat at the end especially with the warm weather. tour guides were great.

Was a fun ride out to the caves! Our guide was great! Would recommend this trip!
