What you'll do

Join this 2-hour guided trip along the Algarve coast, to Praia da Corredoura, passing through the Benagil Cave. Much more than just a boat trip, this fun and fantastic adventure will immerse you in the natural beauty of Portugal like you've never experienced before.

Departing at Vasco da Gama Pier, next to the Convent of São Francisco, start your tour along the River Arade, admiring its churches, castles and beautiful caves. As you glide over the waters, your guide will tell old (sometimes scary) stories and teach you about the history of the Arade River.

There is a possibility that dolphins will be sighted - all of our boats are equipped with VHF radios synchronized with dolphin watching vessels. If these breathtaking animals are seen within a 3 mile radius, the boat will go to their location.

Upon arriving at the Benagil Cave, you will be amazed by its beauty. A naturally formed algar at the top allows sunlight to filter down to the sandy beach below. Listen to the echoes of the wind and let yourself be realized and calm the environment.

Before starting the return to Portimão, we will stop the boat next to Praia da Corredoura, a beach that only has access by sea, for those who want to send a dip and swim in the crystal clear waters of the Algarve.
Other things to note
We ask you to arrive at the meeting point, about 20 minutes before the start time of the Tour.

Walk along the coast from Portimão to the famous Benagil Cave. We will enter truly magnificent caves that have been created with erosion over the centuries. Our Guide will give you a lot of information about the history and particularities of the different areas you will be going through.
If dolphins are spotted less than 2 nautical miles, we will take you there.

Um passeio muito bom. Adoramos conhecer as grutas, ouvir sobre a história do lugar e o cuidado que tiveram com todos. E no final, deu um mergulho delicioso na água. Recomendo para todos!

We had an extraordinary time. The trip was wonderful and everything as described. The crew was super knowledgeable about the area and so kind. The trip is very safe even for small children (our daughter is 4). The caves are beautiful and we even saw dolphins. We will definitely recommend this tour to our friends and family and will even do it again once we re back to Algarve. Thank you so much for the special boat trip.

I had a wonderful time seeing Algarve’s breathtaking spots and beautiful beaches during this experience. The guides were nice and caring, always ready to answers our questions and to tell us about the history and legends of the sites we saw. Also, I could take beautiful photos and we could dive into a stunning beach near the caves. Would absolutely recommend it.
