Portimão: Benagil Cave and Ria de Alvor Nature Reserve Tour

1. Portimão: Benagil Cave and Ria de Alvor Nature Reserve Tour

From the pier of São Francisco in Portimão, you will board a boat. After a warm welcome, the safety procedures will be explained. Then, the journey towards the famous Benagil Cave will start. Along the way, admire other beautiful caves along the coast and hear old stories about them from your guide. If you're lucky, you will be able to see dolphins. All the boats are equipped with radios that will be tuned in to the same channel as the dolphin watching boats. If dolphins are spotted, which is very frequent on the Algarvian coast, and they are within 2 nautical miles, you will have the opportunity to see them. After stopping at the Benagil Cave to take pictures, the boat will continue to the breathtaking Ria de Alvor Nature Reserve. The marshland of the Alvor estuary is one of the finest places on the Algarve for birdwatching, so it's likely you'll spot pink flamingos and many other bird species. On the way back to Portimão, admire the impressive Praia do Alvor, one of the largest sandy beaches of the Algarve.

Super fun boat tour with our guide Miguel! He told a lot and was in for a joke. Thanks to him we enjoyed this trip along the water and after the trip we went to other places that Miguel recommended to us! This trip is definitely worth it.

We had a fantastic day on the water with Joanna and Guillerme, they had our experience at the top of their priority and made the day the peak of our holiday.. Would highly recommend this to anyone.
