Full description
After being collected from your accommodation in Carvoeiro or Portimao, you will begin your trip to the caves of the Algarve Coast. On this 2.5-hour tour, you will explore the coastal caves ranging from Portimao to Caneiros, Paraiso, Carvoeiro, Benagil and Praia da marinha. The trip will start on the Arade River at Clube Naval Portimao, from where you can view the landscape, Ferragudo Castle and numerous beaches. After setting out to the open sea you will become witness to various rock formations and more than 20 caves. You will be able to journey inside of the caves during your tour, which will provide you with the opportunity to take plenty of unique photos. If you are lucky on the day, you will also have the chance to see dolphins. You will of course be welcome to stop for a swim in the sea if you wish, and your guide will be explaining your surroundings for the duration of your tour. Once your tour has concluded, you will disembark at Portimao, before being returned to your nearby accommodation.

    We really liked this boat trip! The employees were very friendly and we saw lots of beautiful caves and (hidden) beaches . I would definitely recommend this tour. It’s a must when you visit the Algarve. Just one tip, when you go there by car make sure you arrive there earlier. It was very difficult to find a parking spot.

    Guide, personnel du bateau et tour en bateau excellent. Dommage que nous n'avons pas vu de dauphins. Par contre ne demandez rien aux personnes dans les environs du port. Ils ne sont vraiment pas sympas. Nous avons demandé à 3 endroits de pouvoir utiliser les toilettes avant de partir pour 2h en bateau et ceci nous a été refusé et ils nous ont même nié

    Nice trip, we were picked up on time at the meeting point. There were 9 passengers in total and we got back. The trip was in Spanish and due to the wind the captain only spoke if we asked him something, and he told us that he would explain things on the way back. Being low season, it was sunny and that made wetting us not so unpleasant, on the other hand inevitable. The penalty was that the wind prevented us from getting closer to a cave, it was a bit dangerous.
