Very good tour. After a pleasant ride across the sea, you first paddle into the Benagil Cave. However, you only stay here for 5 minutes, which is not bad. The cave is also very crowded. After that you continue paddling through various caves. This is much more fun than the actual cave. When you get back to the boat, you can only go for a short swim. All in all a very nice tour.

Amazing. Very well organized and the tour guides johny and Paolo were fantastic. Unbelievable views of the dolphins, caves were spectacular and the swim topped it all off.. What a experience

Great tour and had the chance to see dolphins while out on the boat. Not much information was given on the tour but it was lovely to see all the caves and landscapes from the sea.

It was great value for money and the tour guides were very friendly and helpful

Perfect round ride and we got the chance to see the dolphins!
