What people are saying about Portimão

Amazing experience! The staff is lovely, friendly, funny and very helpful. Capitan Miguel was really nice also the blond guy from the boat. Free pick up from the hotel and free drink on the boat. Very safe boat, has toilet as well. If you want to swim in the water make sure you have your swimming suit with you because in the end of the tour they will allow you to jump into the water. Also they offer you life vest if is needed.

It was really beautiful, a must in the Algarve to do this activity. Comfortable boat that goes at its own pace and so much the better because it is pleasant and we had an elderly person with us. Perfect weather and super pleasant guide full of humor. Thank you for this activity.

wszystko super. nie było problemu z przełożeniem na późniejsza godzine z powodu opóźnienia z dojazdem. udało się zobaczyć delfinki, pan kapitan zabawny. gorąco polecam

Great boat trip with beautiful views, the cave of Benagil itself is a bit disappointing. Definitely worth the money

Excellent organisation, beautiful tour, great team!
