We set off from Vilamoura Marina at 2pm. Chose to sit at the front of the boat and it was the best place to catch a bit of sun. Spent around an hour and a half cruising to the caves. The tour guide 'Daniel' explained when we passed beaches and rock formations. Was ideal weather for the trip even in... More

This was a great trip and even better because the sun was shining! The staff tend to go a little crazy on the speed boat though, so be prepared. The tour of the caves are lovely and very informative. I would highly recommend.

Definitely worth a trip, stunning caves which you can go into in a dingy! We went on the Amorita and the crew were very friendly and informative.

These cruises go from Vilemaura Marina. We went in January, so couldnt go into the caves, but in the summer this would be amazing. The trip also takes you to a beach where you can swim and some of the cruises also provide a beach barbeque. You then go dolphin spotting in open water on the way back.
