Great experience! An immense pleasure to enjoy a magnificent landscape while respecting the fauna and flora as much as possible. The boat is spacious. We could move around freely to enjoy the different viewpoints. We were far from being on top of each other, unlike the other cruise ships. The staff was very friendly and provided us with all the information to understand local life. We did not see any dolphins and the staff explained to us that their natural habitat was further offshore, contrary to what other providers advertise or who do not hesitate to invade their space. You see it from time to time. Really, we recommend this expedition. The value for money is indisputable!

Boat that can accommodate up to 20 people maybe but we were only 15. It was great. Well settled in the shade. Opportunity to buy drinks and a few aperitif biscuits (very fair prices 2 to 3 €) We entered the main caves including Benagil Swimming stop: highlight of the cruise Magnificent coastal landscapes The crew was very friendly. I absolutely recommend this outing.

Pleasant and calm trip in a boat moved 100% by electrical energy that comes from the solar panels on the roof. The motor is practically silent, which gives you the opportunity to enjoy the experience in a very different way from the rest of the boats that make this tour. My wife always gets seasick on boats and this time she didn't even notice. On the other hand, the boat is very spacious and comfortable, it seems to be new and it is very clean. We had a great swim halfway through the ride. The crew made sure we were comfortable throughout the tour and explained many things about the area to us since they are from there and know it well. I advise against doing this activity with speedboats: they are uncomfortable, the sun hits you full, the engines are noisy and annoying for birds and marine fauna, as well as for other visitors, and they should not be allowed.
