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.

Beware last minute cancellation
, 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.

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

What a tour, incomparable to any other. Personal touch, very caring & daring, value for money and super friendly. Special thanks to KATERINA, our tour guide, how lovely you are....
Very nice, short but sweet.

Very nice short tour with knowledgeable friendly guides. They both knew a lot about the caves and they described the sites in English and Spanish as well as Portuguese.
Well worth the money

Loved seeing all of the caves and hearing what they are called, just a pity that the sea was a bit choppy so non of us chose to go for a swim
Great, safe , well worth the price

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
Foi excelente

Vraiment déçue qu on nous...
, Oct 2021
Vraiment déçue qu on nous assure que ça parle français alors que nous sommes montés sur le bateau le guide nous informe qu il ne parle pas français et ses commentaires étaient sur des plaisanteries que sur des explications
Bien, salvo el tiempo del baño, se podría haber alargado 30 minutos que sobraron del tiempo contratado
, Sep 2021
Buenas vistas, agradable, pero el tiempo contratado no lo cumplieron, llegamos a puerto 30 minutos antes
, Sep 2021
On est arrivé à l'heure mais plus de place devant. Pas grave on s installe derrière.... On se rend compte qu'il y a un message d explications tout le long mais derrière on entend rien. On devait nager et boir un coup ni l'un ni l'autre... Donc moyen et pour ceux qui on le mal de mer attention
