2-Hours Benagil Caves Boat Trip From Portimão – Algarve – Portugal

Starting from Portimão, you will discover the most famous caves in Europe, the Benagil caves! On the way you will enter many other amazing caves, have time for a swim in the ocean and take great pictures.

Discover one of the most exotic beaches in the world and marvel at the spectacular Benagil Cave, on a boat tour from Portimão.
From the water you’ll see a fort, a castle, and a fishing village along this magical stretch of the Algarve coast.
We operate with small semi-rigid boats, because only in this way it is possible to discover the most beautiful caves in Europe, with right to pass through narrow canals and ravines.
With exits every day starting from Portimão (subject to weather conditions), enjoy with us a 2 hour ride in one of our boats, always in safety and in the company of a captain with over 1000 hours of experience.
We promise you will find the magic at the Benagil Cave, considered recently by the magazine “In other” as the most beautiful natural cave in the world.
On the way, you will also find over 30 caves and deserted beaches!

  1. It was great! Thanks so much!

    It was great! Thanks so much!

  2. Holiday's Highligh

    The small boats go inside lots of caves and each one has its history to tell. The guide was very dedicated and we felt the 2h were passing very fast. Good job!

  3. Lindissimo!

    Adoramos!! Além do lugar ser esplêndido, a atendente , o guia e o condutor do barco foram muito atenciosos, pontuais e solicitos!!! É o passeio mais incrível do Algarve!

  4. Très belle balade

    Belle balade de 2h de Portimão jusqu’a Benagil. Nous avons pu y entrer mais pas y descendre(apparemment il y a eu un accident et il n’est plus autorisé de déposer les gens sur la plage: à vérifier lors de votre voyage). Vous pourriez facilement y aller à la nage de la plage qui est à côté.
    Bateau plutôt stable et le guide était très sympathique: il a pu nous faire la visite en français et nous approcher au plus près des grottes et de la cote.
    Très satisfaite de notre excursion!
    Merci! 🙂

  5. A must do adventure.

    An amazing excursion. Had a 2 hour boat through 30+ caves. The boat was small which meant we got to experience being inside the caves. The people organising the trip were brilliant and we were picked up from hotel and dropped back in a jeep. A must do adventure.

  6. On en a pleins les yeux !

    Superbe balade à ne pas manquer !!! Vues magnifiques, très bonne organisation et organisateurs au top !!! On en a pleins les yeux !

  7. Benagil Sea Caves Tour

    This experience was wonderful! The guide jumped easily from English, to French, to Portuguese and the scenery was breathtaking. It was the highlight of our stay. We we unaware that there are two Club Naval de Portimão locations and we walked 15 minutes to the wrong dock. No one knew where we could find our Experitour meeting spot. It may have been helpful to know that Experitour booked with Algarve Discovery because no one was familiar with Experitour to help us locate the meeting spot. I had to call Experitour in Lisbon who nicely accommodated us by sending a driver over to pick us up so that we wouldn’t miss the boat!

  8. Amazing Trip

    It was really amazing and the guide was soo good and had so much fun and enjoyment..

  9. Excellent

    Excursion de 2 heures Visite à l’intérieur des grottes Arrêt pour prendre des photos
    Il ne faut pas avoir le mal de mer car même par temps calme, cela frappe à la rencontre des vagues

  10. Magníficas vistas y excelente guía turístico.

    Las cuevas son bastante impresionantes. Nuestro capitán del barco era genial y gracioso. Definitivamente lo recomiendo.

  11. Génial

    Super balade les commentaires sont top ! Très bon moment super jolie des conseils pour continuer à visiter l’algarve vraiment génial

  12. Spectacular!

    The 2hr boat trip to the Benagil caves was the highlight of our visit to Portugal . The boat took us right inside some of the caves and the guide stopped the boat so that we could take good pictures. The trip was unhurried and we even stopped near a beach to see swimmers diving off a cliff. Take a jacket as the return journey can be windy and a little cool if you get splashed by the waves . It was a nice sunny day and we didn’t mind getting splashed at all.

  13. Unforgettable Benagil Caves Tour from Portimao

    Amazing experience, beautiful views, cool and funny guides with good driving skills. They showed us the highlights of the Benagil caves. We left this cruise with plenty of beautiful photos and good mood, too. 🙂 Really recommend!

  14. Amazing tour. Super guides! FUN!

  15. Muito gira a viagem ás grutas

    Saìmos de Portimão rumo às grutas de Benagil, fomos num barco semi-rigido com a algumas ondas. Mas o Luís foi muito simpático, conseguimos visitar muitas outras grutas pelo caminho , embora não todas por causa da ondulação que se fazia sentir. Foi uma viagem com alguma adrenalina e uns banhos de água, causados pelas ondas! Mas adorei cada minuto!! Valeu a pena!!

  16. Definitely recommend

    Very easy to find meeting point. Staff were very friendly, good sense of humour and were very informative along the way! Many photo opportunities whilst exploring the stunning coastline! Small boat to get into the caves but not cramped! Went at 9am on a sunny day and did not disappoint!

  17. Highly recommend

    Great tour, fun guides, and an easy way to see the stunning Algarve coastline. Highly recommended!

  18. Um local paradisieco

    Sou amante de praias e gosto bastante de geologia. foi sem dúvida uma experiência única e relaxante num passeio pelas grutas do algarve.

  19. Nice and beautiful cave trip

    Very nice trip. We visited several nice caves. Gentle and cheerful tour guides. Ordering and everything worked perfectly. Recommended!

  20. Great coastline tour

    We found this company on google and decided to give it a go, we weren’t disappointed. The two guys giving the tour were great funny and friendly and very knowledgeable about the coastline, the boat was a good size and able to get into the caves and was vey manoeuvrable. All in all we had a great 2 hours and would recommend this tour as well worth a visit.

  21. Increible!

    La ruta de dos horas desde el puerto de Portimao hasta la playa de Marinha (espectacular) te permite ver Carvoeiro,Algar Seco,Carbalho y Benagil. Personal encantador te van explicando todas las grutas, algunas con formas curiosas como el coracao del algarve. Muy recomendable!

  22. Recomendada 100 por 100

    Genial guía. Una excursión maravillosa

  23. excelente experiencia

    muy buen guía y amable
    la carencia de dominio de idiomas del guía limitó la experiencia didáctica

  24. Muy recomendable

    La visita estuvo genial, el guia muy divertido nos metió en todas las cuevas que son impresionantes. El paseo en lancha muy agradable sintiendo el aire en la cara. Una experiencia fantástica.

  25. Cuevas d Benagil

    Genial , el conductor es una pasada , nos enseño todo de todo . Gracias.
