    Thank you so much for your help, it was easy to find the right place! And also the boat trip was so nice, with a nice boat, some music and the three parrots, excellent !! For sure money well spent, and I’ll recommend you to anyone going to south Portugal!!
    Thanks again!

  2. Paseo divertido y musical en la costa más linda

    El paseo fue muy divertido, mis hijas adoraron a los pájaros y la vista es fantástica. ¡Volveremos en el verano y esperamos encontrar las canciones! Amamos el Algarve.

  3. Great tour

    Very good for going with small kids. They loved the animals and caves

  4. Fun boat

    We had a great tour. The sea was a bit rough, but the captain knew what he was doing.

  5. Good cost/quality

    For a 3 hours tour, we found the price very reasonable. They took us to some nice caves and also to Benagil.

  6. Kids loved

    We went with our 5 and 9 years old kids and they loved the parrots and the caves. Thanks.

  7. Boat tour to Benagil

    Beautiful sunny day for a most lovely day on the water. Saw some beautiful beaches, caves were amazing! Was a little nervous going into the first cave but the Captain proved himself an expert!
    Most enjoyable 3 hours on the water.

  8. The water was quite choppy but this added to the thrill

    We basically hugged the coastline and even went inside a couple of caves near Carvoeiro. The captain was obviously a very accomplished seaman and we really enjoyed it. The water was quite choppy but this added to the thrill. A few people were seasick and moaning but if you’re on a small boat in choppy seas what do you really expect. The skipper was not a bundle of fun but I am scoring this trip on the fun we had.

  9. The boat trip was ok. A bit boring at times. Don’t like boats at best of time. But it was on our bucket list to see caves. It’s smazing what over time what water can do to rock formation

  10. Transportation without guide

    The tour didn’t meet my expectations since the actual guide stayed at the marina after speaking 5 minutes about trip and security. The guy on the boat only spoke Portuguese. I expected more than the transportation so I recommend choosing another company.

  11. Paseo estupendo

    El paseo en el barco de Yatch Manguito fue estupendo
    Paisajes muy bonitos, amenizado con música para todos los gustos
    Echamos de menos poder bañarnos y hacer una parada un poco más larga en las cuevas de Benagil para disfrutar de la misma y hacer fotos

  12. Foi excelente. Adorei. O comandante super simpático, o passeio fabuloso.

  13. Superbe expérience

    Un très bon accueil de la part de l’équipage. De la musique, une boisson offerte, des bonnes places assise pour tous le monde.
    Un paysage magnifique et la fameuse grotte de Benagil en fin de parcours superbe !! Pour les plus courageux il fallait mouiller le maillot pour atteindre cette plage paradisiaque. Je recommande vivement.
