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.

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.

What is expected and something else

The something else ... is because the day was not the best for navigation having to suspend the end of the trip. Of the more or less two hours planned, we made an hour and a half, if to that you add the bath / dip that for obvious reason we could not realize, you realize that the itinerary was practically covered. Even so when arriving at the port and giving us the appropriate explanations, they also told us to make the claim to repeat the excursion another day and not be able or unwilling to return the amount paid. For my part to take off my hat. Now everyone who values for himself.
