About
The Benagil Caves are worldwide known and definitely a must see for those who come to Algarve. The famous Algar de Benagil has been rated as one of the Top 10 best caves in the world! We visit all the caves in Portimão, Carvoeiro, Benagil and Praia da Marinha. There are lots of colourful caves along the coast that give value to the trip, most of them hidden and totally natural that are definitely stunning, beautiful, paradisic views. As we use a small and low boat that takes a small group, it is possible to get inside all the caves and visit them from the inside, where their natural beauty is. You get to take better pictures and get a closer look at all these beautiful caves!

it was okay
The company was okay , we have been picked up in the morning and have walk to the boot however the boot was not small as mention in the description, so in the beginning we weren with 9 people and leave at 11:00 but later they went back to pickup more passengers.
we left the port and went back again to pick up the others at 11:15.
In the end I have to say that we have seen bit more then other boots around because this boot went close to the caves and others couldn’t get close because of the size.

Simply amazing!
I have taken a few similar tours of the Algarve coastline and this one was by far the best! Andre is a fantastic skipper - very knowledgeable, friendly and fun. I didn’t want it to end. Can’t wait to do it again. Thank you!!!! :)

Best tour so far!
Dec 2020 • Solo
Amazing trip with this tour. It is my third time visiting the caves and first with this company. We were able to go right into the caves with the boat, the guide was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the area. Environmentally friendly, comfortable. Excellent two hours. Can't wait to go again during the summer!

Fabulous trip - best experience of our holiday 😊
Mar 2020 • Friends
My friend and I booked this excursion on our holiday and the trip was fabulous, the couple who organise the booking were super helpful and prepared for the wind out on the water even supplying us jackets in case we felt a chill. The skipper is knowledgeable of the sea and the lady even helped us with questions related to other activities in the area, the boat was clean and safety was paramount. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone going out to the caves as they won't disappoint, the prices are very reasonable also which was a bonus
Thank you!

A very professional operation from the young team!!
Mar 2020
From our initial questions of Natalie to the time we finished our tour of the coastline and caves, everything was perfect. Natalie assured us that if we paid for a trip, and it was cancelled due to rough seas, low tides, whatever, we would be fully refunded. We were offered coats to wear on the boat in case we got cold or wet....neither happened! The captain was very capable, expertly maneuvering the boat into and out of the caves, and keeping the boat very safe for all passengers. If he saw any of the 8 of us still taking photos, he slowed to boat so we could get the best shot. Natalie guided us along the coastline, indicating names and a little history of each spot we stopped at. She capably answered any and all questions we asked if her. There were 8 of us on this trip, and they took their bigger boat so that we all felt we had lots of room. Met some friendly folks from the UK and Scotland, and this made our trip even more enjoyable.
This is an outstanding company to sightsee with!! Do not hesitate to book with Arctic Seagulls!! Thank you for a very memorable excursion.

Very good trip, the guide was talking both in English and Portuguese. The crew has made a good effort to show us a lot of caves during the trip and we have gone to watch delphins which was a great bonus.

Don’t second guess it, just book
We studied cave tours for months before getting to the Algarve and finally decided day before to book this one. It did not disappoint. The boat was comfortable and safe and we barely got wet. Loved that it was only 8 of us. Alex our guide was friendly and informative... and the driver was awesome. I fell like we got to see every cave. Easy to find in the Portimao Marina.
