If you want to see the caves of the Algarve this is the trip for you. The boat is small so can go into the caves. The guide was a marine biologist so very knowledgeable. It was exhilarating and refreshing on a hot afternoon. Loved, loved this experience and it was well worth the

Amazing trip ! Excellent driver and good explanations of the caves. We saw many caves of the coat including Benagil. It’s beautiful ! But very fast sometimes we didn’t have the time to enjoy the beauty of the coast... We didn’t stop to swim :( and no stops in the caves

Dear catchingdreams1229, Thank you for your review. We are glad that you enjoyed the boat tour and saw plenty of dolphins. We regret that our photographers were not able to capture some of the moments you described above. As you can understand despite their effort, they won’t be able to deliver every time, as our rigid-inflatable boat make that task a bit more difficult due to space limitations. We would like to add that the photos are an extra and therefore it is up to the client to purchase them or not. Hope this helps. Kind regards, Dolphins Driven Team
