Algarve Caves Expedition On Board Of Santa Bernarda Pirate Ship

Have a great morning exploring the algarve coast in a real pirate ship! see the caves and get close to this natural beauty.

In the morning, the sea is very calm, ideal conditions for an unforgettable caves trip.

We start our trip in the historic harbor of Portimão. We follow the Rio Arade, passing the fishing village of Ferragudo and two medieval forts entering the Atlantic Ocean. With motor power we turn South-East, past the lighthouse of Ferragudo, the beach of Carneiros, the Roman tower and smugglers cave. Along the coastline of Carvoeiro with the rock formations of Algar Seco, Praia Vale de Centianes, up to the lighthouse of Alfanzina. Along the beaches of Benagil, Praia da Marinha and Armação de Pêra are the majority of the caves, including the largest and deepest caves of the Algarve.

With our traditional cave boats, equipped with engine and life jackets, we go to explore at least 8 of these fascinating caves. Through narrow or wide openings we explore dark or colorful shimmering, Cathedral-like vaults.

  3. Pirate ship with a twist

    The santa bernarda is a pirate ship that takes you into the caves using smaller motorised boats with experienced skippers handling the boats expertly. Boarding the ship is done strictly by who is first on the list, first to go on board. While one set of passengers are doing the caves the others can swim in the sea. We had a few seasick passengers on board, but the crew handled it all very professionally and they were very friendly and child friendly.

  4. Pirate ship trip

    We all thoroughly enjoyed the trip on the Santa Bernarda. We were a group of 4 adults and toddler under 2. I have mobility problems so wondered if I would manage but the crew were very helpful and I had no difficulty getting on and of the ship and transferring to and from the small boats. Loved seeing the coastline from the sea. The sea caves were amazing to see. Our little one fell asleep on the small boat and the crew were great transferring her back to the ship very gently. No seasickness the day we were there. Would recommend.

  5. Vraiment bien

    Le bateau en soit faut le coup d’œil, le personnels est très gentil. Nous prenons un petit bateau pour aller voir et entrée dans les grottes c’est super.
    De voir la côte escarpée et les nombreux trou et grottes de la mer c’est vraiment très beau. Nous avons passé une très belle journée.

  6. The team is amazing and the trip was well organised. I have really enjoyed every each moment. Thank you very much guys!

  7. Toller Ausflug für die ganze Familie

    Wir waren im April in Portimao und waren für einen Nachmittag mit der Santa Bernada unterwegs. Unsere drei Kinder (6 Jahre, 3 Jahre und 9 Monate konnten alle mit.) Die beiden großen konnten auch mit den kleinen Beibotten die Grottentouren mitmachen.
    Die internationale Crew hat sich super um die Passagiere gekümmert und konnte in verschiedenen Sprachen weiterhelfen. (Englisch, portugisich, deutsch, französisch,…)
    Da der Wellengang für die ursprünglich geplante Tour zu stark war, wurde eine sichere Alternativroute angeboten, sodass man dennoch einen tollen Ausflug hatte.
    Wir können es nur weiterempfehlen.

  8. Fantastic cruz ...and the team great !!!

    Fantastic cruz …and the team great !!!

  9. Genial

    Una experiencia estupenda. El viaje dura alrededor de 4 horas y se ven todos los acantilados, playas y cuevas desde el puerto de Portimao hasta Benegil. Es algo más que digno de ver. El capitán del barco da un toque especial a esta experiencia. Lo que sí es importante es tener cuidado con coger el barco un día especialmente soleado. Así como si hace viento, pasar a las barquitas pequeñas para explorar las cuevas es toda una aventura!!! Totalmente recomendable.

  10. Great morning

    We had a wonderful time on the Santa bernarda. Our son was so excited getting on a real pirate ship and meeting all the “pirates”. It was amazing to see all the caves up close. Would highly recommend this trip.

  11. Toujours aussi spectaculaire

    Une sortie à faire le matin pour ceux qui n’arrive pas trop les vagues… Des paysages à couper le souffle, une visite des cavernes en petit bateau moteur, une équipe sympatique et un personnage de pirate qui nous fait sourire . Fait pour la deuxième fois avec toujours autant de plaisir!

  12. very entertaining

    if you’re staying in portimao i highly recommend to take this cruise. you get to go on a real pirate ship.
    it’a a 3 hour tour along the coastline of the algarve. it includes getting on smaller boats to visit the inside of the caves. we also got to see the dolphins.
    the staff are really friendly and helpful.

  13. Buena experiencia

    El viaje nos gustó mucho pero la tripulación era bastante sosa menos un hombre que era el único que hacia de pirata. El barco y el paseo está muy chulo. No hablan en español
