Overview
Gain access to the tight spaces of the Ponta de Piedade grottoes on this tour, which uses specially-designed boats to access more of the seascape. Your captain navigates the small boat into the nooks and crannies of the grottoes along Portugal’s Atlantic coast, renowned for its unusual rock formations and caverns. Learn about the formation of the landscape through the guide's commentary. Travel in a small group of just 10 people or fewer, which provides plenty of time to ask questions.

What to Expect

Relax and enjoy the ocean breeze and unusual scenery, composed of sandstone cliffs punctuated by tiny grottoes and secluded beaches.

We really enjoyed the tour because we booked at 6pm and we was the only on boat with the captain Edgar. So these period of day(the last tour) is perfect for couples as the captain is not pressed by time to come back for the next tour. Definitely recommend! :)

Thank you for your kind words Mirian! To see orques is something very rare that only happens to a few and it's something unique. We are very grateful that you chose us to take you on these two adventures and that we reached the expectations. We hope to see you again! Best regards, Steve

Beautiful views, good value for money, funny and friendly staff. Would definitely recommend to anyone who fancies a boat trip. The groups are small so it is very relaxing. If you suffer from sea sickness, take anti sickness meds before as it can be choppy.
