AMAZING! Do not leave Portugal without going on this boat tour. Our captain was amazing. So friendly and fun, and his boating skills were so impressive! I couldn’t believe some of the places he took us. We literally said, “No way are we seriously going in there?!” about 10 times ☺️ That being said, we always felt 100% safe with him and the scenery is absolutely breathtaking. Yes, that sounds cheesy but once you see it you’ll agree!

Luis greeted us at the meeting point. He must be the owner because he was great. Funny and extremely helpful. Made us feel very welcomed. He introduced us to Jorge our captain and Inez. They were very friendly. Jorge was a professional navigating the boat through the caves and around the rocks. Thank you so much.

we were unlacky with the weather so we could.not swim to the cave but the team found for us another two great places to go and explore . it was wonderful trip and amazing views . I have no regrets and I recommend this tour to anyone . Big thanks to all guys who were assisting us all the trip . great fun !

A definite must do in Villamoura, very chilled, wonderful host, drinks and snacks on board and stunning views of the sunset & moon! Delivered back to the marina just in time to enjoy dinner & drinks for the rest of the evening!

Really friendly tour guides and overall amazing experience!
