Full description
Climb aboard the Leãozinho for a 3.5-hour day cruise leaving from the Albufeira Marina in the morning. Set your sails westward and head into the Atlantic towards the sandy shores of San Rafael, Castelo and Praia da Gale. Stare out towards the majestic cliffs and see the rock chapel Senhora da Rocha perched over the sea. Shortly after passing the fishermen at Armacao de Pera, arrive at the stunning beach and sapphire blue waters of Praia de Benagil. Here, have the option to explore the enormous sea cave, indulge in a warm swim in the crystal clear Atlantic, or have a go at fishing. Satiate your thirst at the onboard Pirate Bar, where you can sip on a cool and refreshing beverage of beer, soft drinks and water, and relish the sparkling blue sea. As you motor back to Albufeira, stay alert for dolphins whose fins are often seen racing along the ship.

My daughter and I enjoyed the cruise along the coast. There were high waves so we couldn't visit the cave. If we are ever in Albufeira again, we will book a trip on the Leãozinho on a calm day, but now we enjoyed the more adventurous trip: it was great! The atmosphere on board was very pleasant and we were warmly welcomed and well informed. The guide drew our attention to the mountains around Monchique, where we also had an unforgettable day a few days later. Thank you very much: the boat trip and the tip we received were the icing on the cake of our holiday!

Our guides were amazing, funny, friendly... just perfect and they gave a lot of information. Not just about the tour. Unfortunately we were only in the cave for a short time and couldn't get out. But the boat trip alone was worth it and there was the opportunity to swim in the ocean. I can really recommend it.

We unfortunately picked a day that the sea was quite choppy, so sea sickness ensued with the majority of our party obviously through no fault of the crew who were really friendly and helpful throughout. As the conditions weren't we were unable to gain access to caves, some of us did however get to have a nice dip in the sea and the views of the coast from the boat were incredible. Would recommend on a calmer day.
