It was an amazing experience I would recommend to anyone! We first travelled to the end of our destination which wasn't very exciting but on the way back once we stopped to see the caves It was extraordinary! I would recommend to dress warm as it does get windy and I could not give enough credit to the 2 staff ladies which entertained our young daughter the whole way. Worth every penny.

We went on the Caves and Coastline tour yesterday and we had a great time. Marcos, our guide, was fantastic, with lots of knowledge about the history and geology of the Algarve’s coastline. Although the sea was a little bit rough, we still got to see some of the best sights including the Benagil caves and some lovely beaches that could only be accessed by the sea. We also had a little bit of extra time so we were taken further along the coast. It was a great experience and great value for money.

A well organised tour from Albufeira marina. Sales guy from front desk informative and friendly - can't remember his name but remember he was a trainee. My husband I booked the coast and caves tour at €35 each for 3 hours. The boat seats are really comfortable and the catamaran holds 60 passengers - our tour was almost full. When the catamaran gets up to speed it is a lovely experience. The coast line is stunning as well as the caves. The lady doing the commentary was great also. There was a toilet on board but no other facilities. The staff seemed attentive taking care of some seasick passengers - didn't speak to us but we were ok. Overall a very pleasant way to spend the afternoon.

We had really professional crew with us. Before the event I got a call to make sure that the weather is good enough to have fun on the sea and to take a coat with us. We were really lucky because the weather was nice - the sun was shining and the wind wasn't cold, although it was March 1. The guide was great fun, we had a good laugh! And he also took good care of us - he took photos of groups etc. Really trustworthy, professional and super exciting experience! The caves are beautiful and the views are absolutely amazing!!

Fantastic cruise from Albufeira marina to Benagil cave. The tour guide was fun and informative, telling us all about the area and its history along the way. The catamaran stopped for several minutes inside of the cave, providing some amazing photo opportunities.

On the way back to Albufeira, we stopped and had the opportunity to dive into the sae from the boat, which was lots of fun and a great way to complete the cruise.
