I have done two coastal Algarve trips. This experience was delightful as it was small group. We had six in our party and so it was just us and the two crew members. Excellent boat handling got us into the caves (and out again!). Very much an ‘up close and personal’ outing. Thank you for a memorable afternoon!

We were a group of three who didn't know any Portuguese and our guide was super nice. It was a lovely time with my friends and I appreciated that we were safe throughout the tour.

Great if you have some time to kill in Lagos. Professional and really funny guides and a stunning view.

It was great! The view was fantastic and the skipper was funny and knowledgeable.

A beautiful ride! The staff were great! Would recommend:)
