Full description
Meet your guide at the pier in Portimao and listen to a short safety briefing. Then, board the RIB speed boat to start the journey out to sea. On your way, the guide will tell you stories about the Arade River and the Algarve region. Admire views of the Fort of Santa Catarina, the Ferragudo castle, as well as a quaint fishing village along the coast. See many dramatic caves and cliffs as you travel along the coast. Keep a lookout, as dolphins can often be seen navigating the waters here. If they are spotted and are less than 3 miles away, the boat will head in their direction so you can get a closer look at these playful mammals. Then, head inside the famous Benagil Caves, which are only reachable by boat. Marvel at the naturally-formed holes at the top, which let the sunlight filter down to the sandy beach below in a beautiful display. Listen to the echoes and the sound of the wind and let yourself be moved by these impressive natural surroundings. On the way back to the marina, the boat will make a brief stop so you can go swimming.

Informative and funny tour guides, and a gorgeous view of the coastline! Timing of the tour was excellent, not too long or short, and enough time at the viewpoints for taking pictures. Guides will take pictures for you if you ask and want a better view. Speed boat had good seating and it didn’t feel too crammed. Would recommend!

Great tour. The crew was very friendly and knows their stuff very well. A lot of positivity and laughter within the group. Captain Carlos and Rita made the tour an awesome one. I want to thank sir Miguel in particular for helping me with the flat tire, brigado. Very glad I did this tour!

Wir haben auf Grund der Rezessionen diese Tour gebucht und wurden nicht enttäuscht. Die Sprachkenntnisse auf Spanisch könnten etwas besser sein. Die Organisation war sehr gut und das Team in unserem Boot sehr sehr freundlich. Delphine konnten wir nicht sehen, und aufgrund der Gezeiten war es anscheinend nicht möglich bei der Höhle von Bengali an Land zu gehen. Das hätten wir uns sehr gewünscht. Ganz toll fanden wir die Speedfahrt und Kurven-Einlage auf der Rückfahrt. Wir empfehlen diese Touren!!
