    The Trip okay good. The Guide walk up and down the boat and told us the name of the beaches and caves. Unfortunately I was not able to see the inside of the Benagil Cave. Like others already mentioned, there is loud music, but luckily not to loud. Overall it was a nice time. One thing I really disliked, they served Nestea in plastic cups, hoped they have paper cups, since we passed so much plastic in the water.

    Everything was great on the trip. The weather was great and we had lovely company. The skipper went out of his way to make it interesting and entertained us along the way - taking us close up to beaches, stopping a bit to watch kids jumping from the rocks, and generally creating a great atmosphere. He was in no rush and gave us time to take some great photos. I would certainly recommend this trip - it is affordable, a lovely outing for just under three hours, a great way to see the caves.

    We enjoyed all the views of the caves. The trip was beautiful. Unfortunately, the water was a little rough and it’s was chilly. I was so impressed with the skill of the captain and his ability to fight the waves yet still get us inside the caves. There was no bar or drinks as listed in the info, not was there an offer for hotel pick up as listed. We had a good time though.
