Très bonne expérience, l’hôte était attentionné en préparant à l’avance un gilet de sauvetage adapté à notre fille de 2ans, de plus sa « conduite » sur la mer était agréable compte tenu de la peur de notre enfant

The tour is nice: the landscape is breathtaking and totally worth it! Ricardos boat is also really nice, right size and nice tempo but besides there wasn’t much. We choose this tour for around 15€ more because we expected something special, a lil extra. Besides the fact that we actually booked a sunset tour which was rescheduled for the next day 2 pm, there was no way of communicating with Ricardo about this. We asked several questions in advance - he just didn’t react. The tour itself was very monotone in it’s presentation but as I said the landscape is worth a lot.

This was a very cool experience. Ricardo took us to see all these amazing caves and beaches all among the coast. It's fun, easy and good for everyone. At the end of the trip we stopped for a swim and then a few glasses of champagne. We were there on our honeymoon and it was a lovely start to our trip. Definitely recommend this.

This was a great excursion! Many of the other boat trips we looked at were with larger groups; we just had two couples with us for a total of 7 participants, which made things seem really intimate and less touristy. Ricardo did a great job pointing out landmarks and beaches in English and Portuguese, all while driving the boat. We ended up returning to a beach he pointed out to us later, and it was the best beach of our visit to the Algarve. This was a great trip for the value and I would do it again.

Incredible experience. Ricardo is an excellent captain at navigating the caves. We took on the on a very rough sea day and Ricardo managed to continue the tour as plan due to his excellent piloting

Ricardo est un Capitaine fort sympathique. En réservant le tour je me suis trompé d'un jour, et Ricardo à accepté de nous accueillir : merci à lui ! Effectivement le tour peut, peut être fait moins cher sur des bateaux plus grands, mais profiter de ces superbes paysages en petit groupe est réellement une expérience que je recommande. Bravo à lui et encore merci d'avoir accepté que nous montions à bord alors que ce n'était pas le jour de notre réservation.
