Fun family experience with beautiful sites. Try to get a reservation before 12pm. The larger boats start coming out around that time, so the waters and caves get very busy. We had a 10am slot which was perfect for us. Not too early but before the big crowds.

Nice chap. Fabulous caves which we wouldn't have found without a guide. Benagil beach was more crowded than I had expected and arrived down a VERY steep hill from the car park. The kayaks would have been more comfortable with a backrest. Overall we had memorable trip. Recommended.

The caves are beautiful and the guides are really knowledgeable. Be sure you really have the physical ability to row as the waves can be quite rough. Can't say enough about the beauty of the area and how much we learned from the guide. They are truly top notch. The parking is not very close to the beach so be sure to get there early to park and walk down to the beach. Bring snacks because the snack bar at the beach is hugely over priced. Also, Get your Guide was amazing on this reservation and others. So easy to communicate with them on What's App. They were able to solve many issues for us in advance of our tours.
