What people are saying about Caramujeira

The ship is beautifully restored with lovely details of brass complimenting the deep wood tones and curved design reminiscent of bygone eras of seafaring. Absolute gem for photographers. The crew is very friendly and polylingual so that the major European languages English, German, French, Portuguese and I think Spanish are covered. There is an option for food and drink on board, but I haven't tried them. The cave tour is awe-inspiring, especially the Cathedral Cave of Benagil, and gives many opportunities to take epic photos of the large ship through cave openings which make for impressive memory shots. I strongly recommend the sunset tour, it elevates the experience even more as the setting sun paints the sandstone cliffs golden against the deep blue of the sea and the sky. Amazing, we will do it again! A note: One can get seasick even in a calm sea, the small boat ride into the caves alleviates it, however.

It was very nice, lovely experience. Something you must do! The crew Carlos and Jona ( I hope I wrote the names right) were great. Thank you so much for a great trip

Absolutely Excellent experience with amazing views Would recommend
