Our booking was with Days of Adventure. Loved the boat, driver and guide we had. Noticed some other companies boats were smaller and they looked like they were getting wet. the ride there is bumpy on the waves and a bit bigger boat is appreciated. Also noted the much bigger boats could not go in every cave. The tour was great, the caves are amazing geological wonders. Happy we did this one. We were lucky to have Portuguese Adam Sandler as our guide. Interesting and funny.

Due to overcrowding there are new rules at Benagil. Motor boats can no longer go in the cave, kayaks and paddle boards are not longer allowed to beach on the shore and, and swimming there is prohibited. Just make sure you know before you go. Fines for swimming are up to €2500.

Disappointed as could not go inside the caves. It was an Hour long boat trip and if you like sea you may like it. However, it seems that government has banned the entry so no fun seeing it from the outside.

Took a boat tour to see the caves and it did not disappoint. The caves were quite crowded on a hot August morning but it actually made it more fun. Our boat had to navigate carefully around the many kayakers who were swarming this place. The boat captain took us right into the cave which was fun. A once in a lifetime experience.

The sea was very unsettled when we went and so that made it a difficult sail. The caves were great to see. Very unusual but it was very busy, lots and lots of boats, paddle boarders and kayaks. At times it was so busy with boats I worried about the paddle boarders. The best part was when we anchored away from the others and had a swim in the sea. I wouldn’t go again, it’s a long trip too.

Best region of the Algarve to do a visit of kayak, much more beautiful than the region of Lagos, Benagil is the biggest natural attraction of the Algarve coast, and I advise you to book with the company xplore benagil where they took us to visit the grotto of benagil known as the algar of benagil and we had an extra during the tour we saw dolphins and saw the natural arches of the beach of Marinha one of the most beautiful beaches of Europe, I always advise to take a guide we got with xplore benagil.

The caves were beautiful. It would be lovely to have a swim to the caves. Also, the dolphins were no where to be seen. I ask for my money back according to the brochure, only to be told I bought €35 ticket and if I wanted a refund I needed to buy €45.
Not happy €70 down the drain 😏
