Trip Summary:

Best thing about this trip: Due to being a smaller and traditional boat, it goes right inside the caves, and people are able to see everything in more detail. Plenty of time to take lots of photos. If you are want to  see the caves and really explore them in detail, this is the boat trip for you!

Departure Point: Praia dos Pescadores (Fisherman’s beach) in Armação de Pêra

Duration: It takes around 15 min to reach the caves, the trip duration may vary, from 1h to 1h30, we have upgrades available!

Visits inside caves: Yes, in detail. Boat goes slower than other types of boats, so people appreciate that because they’re able to take better quality pictures, not rushing. Also when stopping at the end, boat goes directly into the sand so people don’t even need to get their feet wet.

Visits Benagil (including going inside the cave): Yes, people love this cave the most, and are able to take good pictures and observe the cave in detail.
