It was an amazing day! We had so much fun. The boat is big and goes really close to the rocks, so you can see very well all the rock formation. The activity to go see the caves was fun. They make you see many caves, not just one like I thought. The bbq was great and the beach was amazing. We didn't want to leave this place! It's your turn to have fun! (:

Great Catamaran (very stable and no dizziness). The precious route. When we reached the area of the caves they took out a couple of auxiliary boats and brought us inside them. The most beautiful is Benagil. We enjoyed the coast on a fantastic day. Very professional and friendly staff. Essential excursion. The price difference compared to other excursions to the Benagil area on other boats and without food is very adequate given the quality and duration of the excursion.

It is a good experience if you go with friends or partner. I do not recommend for families with children. It is a busy activity, not only because of the boat changes, since the staff does it super well to help, but because people go in a full party atmosphere and it can be annoying, so much alcohol, music and revolted people. The crew respected mask issue, but the people nothing at all. The catamaran was packed with people. I liked it but to go without children. With the children I would choose to see the same thing but in other options like so many there are.
