This tour made our holiday,high speed rib took us to our tour of a fantastic coastline. The tour guide narrative was very enlightening and entertaining.The Captain handled the boat really well at high speed and was very competent at low speed sightseeing manoeuvres.I Have mobility issues and was actually able to drive my mobility scooter to the boat,where I was helped aboard and made to feel safe and welcome. The caves themselves were spectacular and the coastline of Albufeira seen from the sea was a sight to be treasured by my Wife and I. The experience really made a real high point to our holiday and would recommend it to anyone.

The boat has very comfortable seating and was small enough to enter many seaside caves. The guide was both personable and knowledgeable. Overall, an excellent experience!
