The caves were beautiful! Time was wasted while people swam (less than half the group wanted to swim). So while the 20 or so people swam the rest of us were sitting in the sun with nothing to do. We should have used that time to sightsee or find dolphins. We were unable to find any but that is not the tour company's fault.

This tour was amazing, we saw lots of dolphins and I was so amazed. The colour of the water is most beautiful and the caves were gorgeous. The tour guides gave a good talk about highlights and it was very interesting. It felt very safe and the boat ride was very smooth.

This activity is a must do in Algarve. The Caves are an absolute beauty, We could not see the dolphins and we chase them for about 45min, it was just bad luck. My tour was in English and Portuguese which I appreciated as my Portuguese is really bad . If I go back to Algarve would do the tour again and again. The tour last 2,5 hours and it is more than enough.
