    We really enjoyed this activity. Boat was new, clean and comfortable. Guide, Andre, was excellent. He really knew the area. Our driver took us into several caves which we were not expecting. Fun high speed ride back. It’s a RIB boat. Our only issue was finding the place. DO NOT use the address. Go to the Navel Club or use the link they send you. There are a lot of one way streets, so if you miss, it will take forever to get back. They did change the time of our trip. It was lucky I saw the email. I am not attached to my phone. Boat ride was Fantastic! Not as sold on get your guide.

    Great fun, amazing views and lots of interesting information. I highly recommend it because it's really worth it. Thanks to the guide's hints, we went on a land trip to see what it looks like from a different perspective. I recommend the walking trip to Algar Seco and Caneires is really worth it!

    We were a little late for the boat ride and they were kind enough to call us and wait for us. And during the ride, every cave was explained in English and in French. 2 hours were completely worth a visit to all beautiful places. We totally recommend for all those who love to see the beautiful caves and beaches in 2 hours.
