Great tour of the caves and rocks on the southern coast of Portugal at Lagos. Our guide was fluent in English, French and Portuguese which was impressive. He offered all kinds of local anecdotes about the rocks and caves we were touring and the boat driver was highly skilled, getting in and out of tight spaces without a scrape. Very professional and enjoyable.

Very nice and comfortable walk, you can carry the camera without problem. We really liked the route and the explanation of the guides, but it fell short for us. We would have liked to go through more caves or get closer to more beaches, but we suppose that it is normal when you go by boat and not by kayak. Still, highly recommended.

The meeting point is next to Pedro's Bar. I found it a bit informal that the check in is on the sand under an awning and that the access to the boat is from the beach. The boat reaches the shore and you have to put your feet in the water to get on the boat (easy access with a step to climb) they recommend going barefoot. The ride is very cool but the boat goes quite fast, I don't know if it would be recommended for babies, because the boat jumps from time to time. The guide spoke more time in English than in Spanish. Benagil Cave was full of people inside and Kayaks on the sand, you can't appreciate how beautiful it is. In general the good experience.
