What people are saying about Benagil

Absolutely incredible. Our guides were great. They gave us a good explanation on how to kayak and we were off. They shared information about the cave and offered to take pictures for us. They used the panoramic setting vertically (something I wouldn’t have thought of ) and we have incredible photos all thanks to them!

It was a very good experience. We saw many beaches. The boat captain drove the motorboat very professionally. The tour guide said very good things and interesting things about the beaches and rocks. We watched everything in 1 hour. The ship is brutally fast!

What a GREAT experience! We loved every second of it and we were SO glad we did the sunrise kayak as we had the whole beach to ourselves. The guides were funny, knowledgeable and simply great guys! 5+ stars!

Amazing experience and well worth the early wake up to get to the caves before the crowds! The guides are easy going and organized. Very safe and fun activity.

Very good tour price performance is right. I would book again
