What you'll do

We board directly at Carvoeiro Beach and sail aboard small boats along the Algarve coastline, on a sweeping coastal tour, where you have the opportunity to be amazed by the fascinating inside of the caves, where the rock formations, secret beaches, the game of colors and contact with the ocean will unite you forever in a set of unique and indescribable sensations, only possible this close to nature. It is in this unique setting that we highlight white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters, such as Carvoeiro Beach (considered the most beautiful in Europe); along the Algar Seco rock formations, Vale de Covo beach; and we visit the inside of the Benagil cave (this is where the most famous cave in the world formed by erosion, about 20 million years old, the incredible Algar de Benagil); Corredoura and Marinha beach (which is currently among the 100 most beautiful in the world and is known for its imposing Arches). On warmer days we offer the opportunity to feel the thrill of diving into the sea, with breathtaking landscapes as a backdrop. Inside our boats we offer impeccably maintained automatic life jackets. The use of these is mandatory, taking into account the safety regulations in force. The tour ends again in Carvoeiro where there are shower facilities, WC, coffee shops, restaurant and commerce.

I was born in Carvoeiro, I am a fisherman (the only one registered in this land of former fishermen) and currently do colective and personalized tours to the caves of Carvoeiro, Benagil and Marinha. To do this I had to create a company, where I count on the collaboration of very experienced sailors and skippers from a long time at sea and where we provide unique experiences on board small boats. I have transmitted them all my knowledge and local stories and curiosities I have learned from the old fishermen at the beach. I was 14 then. This activity was categorized by Tripadvisor, where my company has a "hall of fame" certificate, that is, 5 years ago with 5 stars, and I have been doing this since 1990. At the time there was a very sporadic interest, but at the moment, this activity is being one of the most sought after in our land

A experiência começou mal pois fomos os primeiros a chegar ao local de encontro, com 10 minutos de antecedência, e os últimos a entrar no barco com 15 minutos de atraso. Uma vez que tivemos o cuidado de não atrasar a experiência sendo pontuais, devia ter havido o cuidado e respeito de nos priorizar na entrada no barco. Chegaram-nos a tirar de um barco para colocar noutro. Já no barco, gostamos da experiência mas havia muitas brincadeiras com o barco paralelo com que viajávamos que tornaram desconfortável a viagem. O condutor estava mais ocupado em brincar do que em nos dar um passeio guiado agradável, sendo que de vez em quando mandava uns comentários não muito bonitos, a meninas que por la passeavam de caiaque . Quanto ao guia que estava no barco, fez um trabalho 5 estrelas e gostamos muito de estar com ele, foi profissional e atencioso durante a viagem toda. No geral a experiência foi agradável mas ficou muito aquém das nossas expectativas pelos aspetos já mencionados, e não a voltaríamos a fazer.

My Family loved this tour of the Algarve coast line! I definitely recommend this experience to anyone visiting the Algarve. The caves are breathtaking and you are able to cover a big portion of the coast in 90 min! Bruno and Fabio, our guides were very knowledgeable and made our trip very enjoyable. Will recommend to friends and family! Thanks for everything :)

Really nice people, very warm and welcoming. We took some risks going into the caves and drove fast back on the sea which was exciting ! I saw beaches you wouldn’t see without a boat! Would definitely recommend (not for people that get seasick quickly though HHa)
