Ponta de Piedade Grotto Sightseeing Cruise from Lagos

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Take part in a one hour and fifteen minute sightseeing cruise to the grottoes of Ponta De Piedade in any number of the regular trips departing daily from Lagos. Slim boats will take you to unbelievable spaces within the grottoes on this small-group, guided tour for up to 10 guests. Transportation is not included, so be sure to make your way to Marina De Lagos to begin your adventure.
  • Navigate Lagos' coastal caverns in a specially designed boat 
  • See the sandstone cliffs, grottoes, rock formations, and secluded beaches from the water
  • Learn about the geology and origin of the formations from your guide
  • Small group of just 10 people allows an intimate atmosphere and time to ask questions
  • Multiple departure times make it easy to fit your schedule
What to Expect
Make your own way to Marina de Lagos to meet your guide and group at your selected departure time. Boats leave regularly throughout the day, which ensures you can find a time that fits your vacation schedule. Step aboard a low-profile vessel, specially designed for navigating the tight spaces in the Ponta de Piedade grottoes. With a small group of 10 people or fewer, this tour has an intimate atmosphere and offers plenty of time to ask questions. Relax and enjoy the ocean breeze and unusual scenery, composed of sandstone cliffs punctuated by tiny grottoes and secluded beaches. Let the captain show his or her expertise while navigating the tight spaces and tough turns that you would never try on your own, while providing commentary on the formation and geological details of the Atlantic coast. Return to Marina de Lagos at the conclusion of your tour.

Really enjoyed our boat ride to the grottoes in Lagos with Days of Adventure. Our driver Nelson was informative, had a sense of humour and made the trip lots of fun. Would recommend for others visiting Lagos

Go to Ponte de Piedade itself. There are always boats at the bottom of the cliffs.

The main beach is about a ten min walk from the marina. I would say probably not because the boats cannot get too close to the swimmers.

I don’t really understand your question but you need to go to Lagos, Portugal and at the marina the tour company is there.
