It was a great experience and we can only recommend it to everyone. This tour gives you an insight into the coastal landscape of the Algarve. that remains hidden from the land. In addition, the crew were extremely helpful and, with their help, made it possible for my wife to take part in this boat tour.

Nice boat trip along various caves. Alan & Ricardo were top guides and showed us the most beautiful places. On the way back we went for a swim and drank champagne. The trip is highly recommended, seen beautiful things and only with a small group of people on the boat.

The tour very well, the explanations in Spanish very scarce

The tour is very good, the area is beautiful and deserves a boat trip to appreciate it from the sea. As I would say, the time for the bath is very short, about 15 minutes that barely give anything. Upon arriving at the meeting point, the captain only spoke to us in Portuguese, since despite having booked the tour in Spanish, of the 7 people we were, we were only the only 3 Spaniards. So although he struggled to explain some of what we saw in a Portuguese-Spanish mix, when someone asked him something (obviously in Portuguese), he answered in Portuguese, so many conversations, questions, explanations, we could not understand. I think that if you book a tour in Spanish you have to respect it, and that should have been the language of the tour. It is not that I am a miquis tiquis with this language, but to listen to conversations in colloquial tone in Portuguese that I do not understand half of, I would have taken the tour in English and learned everything.
