We were not sure what to expect but were pleasantly surprised by how much we saw. This tour took us to many many caves and areas that were so beautiful and unique! We went inside many caves. Well worth the cost!

The highlight of Algarve
geetika_p

We were a group of 13 friends on a holiday and I organised this private cave trip. It became the highlight of our trip and memory for life . Miguel got in touch as soon as I booked and communications were spot on . Antrim and the captain Zapain were the most professional and friendly tour operators . We saw a large pool of dolphins .. unplanned , unexpected but a treat .. Cannot recommend the tour company enough .. they ace in customer service .

Disappointing
Beea_V
, Oct 2021
I asked in advance if it was possible to go for a walk in the cave and the answer was perhaps, depending on the circumstances. We took the least windy day but no boats even try to go to the beach. They will go there just minute to look at the hole. I recommend to not book this and go by your self if you, wanna explore the cave.

Hello dear customer, This trip is a public trip, and we would like to have a private tour for each client. 😁👍 We have the security issues, which the captain of the team is criminally responsible, when something happens. The client said it all in her review. She wants to risk and be able to die. Do it with your responsibility. 👍😊

Beware last minute cancellation
Emily_H
, Oct 2021
Beware of last minute cancellation! We wanted to take this boat because it was the only one that set sail at 5:15 and we wanted to catch the sunset. But when we showed up, they said there was an engine problem on the boat (despite another full boat pulling up at the time) and for some reason they said they "couldn't contact us" because it was through Viator. Not sure how, since Viator emailed me the confirmation! Anyway, good news is they refunded the money. Bad news is there were no other boats for the evening and we had to change our entire itinerary so we could take a different tour the next day from another company.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Dear customer, We would have liked you to have taken the trip with us. There is no need to doubt that. Regarding the electronic warning that appeared on the engine panel, the decision of whether or not to make another trip with the boat is up to the boat captain for safety reasons, not yours. For that reason we ask for the next time not to comment on what you don't know to try to harm those who are working. Please note that you have been given a replacement schedule and have not been accepted. Now through your review we know that you can now accept the same proposed schedule but in another company. (???) We would like you to have made a review if you have actually made the trip, and not harm the company that has had the bad luck for free, and also had the refund. Captain Miguel

The boarding procedure was a bit chaotic, and people were skipping the lines to get a good seat on the boat. Could be a lot better organised in a row. The two young captains were great, spoke fine English. There were aprox 20 min for a swim, but could be extended if asked for. We did NOT have a swim into benagil, but can't deny that it could have been done CORONA was not an issue ! We didnt see any dolphins

Extrêmement déçus, les prestations ne correspondent pas à ce qui était annoncé. Sortie maintenue malgré une mer avec des creux de 2 m qui ont causés pas mal de vomissements et empêchés la visite de la grotte de Benagil , point fort de la publicité. Le retour s’est effectué avec des pointes à plus de 20 noeuds malgré l’état de la mer! Thé annoncé : inexistant. Et la durée du tour a été amputée d’environ 20mn.
