We were booked in for the sunset tour however due to the time of year and weather I was contacted by Catarina to let us know they could offer us an alternative which was a tour of the secret beaches and caves.
It was my birthday and it was the best part of my day, Catarina has a deep love for the ocean, marine life and her country and that comes across in everything she speaks about. All the caves were and beaches were beautiful to see.
Only wish we had been blessed with a dolphin sighting but despite my mother attempted whale and dolphin calls, we didn't see any (we weren't far out enough anyway).
Shame we couldn't see the sunset BUT this was a lovely alternative. Highly recommend.

Catarina, you are a gem! If you ever visit Yorkshire, I owe you a bev!

The whole trip was beautiful for many reasons including seeing really exceptional places and meeting a group of over 50 pilot whales!!!! We were watching these special creatures for over 30 minutes from a minimal distance (they were touching our boat), and we could smell them! We also enjoyed Katarina's guidance and stories, we learned a lot about the region and the ocean.

The team is super nice and took care of us for the entire journey across the caves and secret beaches. They took us to places to have a little swim in the sea next to wonderful and quiet beaches.
The team adjusted the journey following our wishes and made it very special. Thank you to day dream, you can join the experience with no hesitation !

We had a fantastic experience traveling the coast south and north of Sesimbra. Catarina is a very knowledgeable guide and we learned much of the landscapes, rock formations, and cave systems. Andre led us to beaches, secluded and accessible only by boat or on foot. One cave in particular made the trip all worth it, as the sun was in the exact spot glowing into the water, shining into the water into the cave walls.

We spent the afternoon on a boat. Had a great trip and saw so many nice places on the coast! Very friendly staff! Would recommend bringing a warmer jacket Bc it can get windy and a bit cold after a swim.
