      Excellent trip to the Ponta da Piedade Caves, with pro guide and skipper!
      We booked the Ponta da Piedade Caves/Grottos tour and were just looking forward to a pleasant boat trip, but we really thought the guide (Lulu/Loulou sp?) was fantastic, made the trip really fun and loved hearing about all the names of the caverns and beaches and why they were named etc. Also the skipper was great at accessing the caves, getting in and out through tight spaces...a complete pro! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend and hopefully we will do the Benagil Caves next year.

      Caves via kayak- ten out of ten.
      Excellent way to see the caves via kayak- not too arduous- we’re old people and found it easy - hardest bit is getting into the kayak! Our host and kayak master, Ricardo (sorry for spelling🫢) was terrific - his intimate knowledge of the caves is immense and being high tide we had access to some tighter bits. Communication pre and during tour was fabulous- highly recommend. And the views are truly gorgeous. Thank you.

      Exceptional vistas up close
      I was surprised just how beautiful the views were on this tour. Just challenging enough but not hard at all for most people ….. I loved how we were launched and recovered without having to get wet! Nice crew and friendly tour guide and well deserved a tip which we gave willingly without too much pressure coming from the staff which I liked 👍

      A Must in Lagos!
      This was definitely a must while visiting Lagos! Being able to see the caves and grottos so close and getting to kayak while doing so was wonderful. Our guide, Andre, was funny and informative and really made the trip so enjoyable. The jump off the boat into the crystal clear water at the end was fabulous as well!

      Days of Adventure…more like days of our lives!!!
      One thing we really enjoyed was the waiting area before our excursion. It was covered and it was VERY prompt!! Please get there 10-15 min early! You won’t regret it. We believe it was an adequate amount of time to participate in kayaking. The boat experience was fantastic and the music was great. After our kayaking, we even had time to jump off into the waters! If you’re an English speaker, have no fear! The guides were able to fluently pass between Portuguese and English when describing the rock monuments, and they kept us entertained! The views were stunning

      Great way to spend an hour on the water learning about the caves-
      Book with Trip Advisor as you save euros from booking with your hotel or in person. They do not honor the TA price unless you book online. Experience can vary by who is your boat guide - we really enjoyed being out on the water for the hour. WE sat in the fron tof the boat and found it difficult to hear above the motor when our driver was identifying specific rock formations

      Best way to see the coastline in Lagos!
      Well organised and safe trip. Kayak loaded on boat for first part of trip then launched into water onboard the kayaks, great fun. Guide was very knowledgeable and concerned about safety of kids on trip and the tour was well paced. We even saw dolphins on the way back

    We went to Benagil Caves on a 2pm tour.
    The checkin and boarding was efficient and we were away on time.
    Benagil cave is beautiful but that time of the afternoon it was packed with other boats (including one larger boat) and many kayakers, paddle boarders and swimmers. Making it difficult to take in the surroundings but also making you feel a bit apprehensive for everyone’s safety (not ours - the captain seemed extremely capable- more all the swimmers and novice paddlers bobbing around between the boats)
    The other caves you visit on the way back were much less crowded and so more enjoyable
    Overall I’d recommend this company but perhaps go earlier in the day if possible

    Originally I had booked my tour for a Tuesday, but do to rough waters predicted they couldn't take boats out. They called on Sunday before and offered to move our tour to Monday or refund our money. We went Monday and it was great from start to finish. We got inside not only Benagil cave but several others. Since boat was a speed boat we stayed cold even though temperatures were high.

    A really good experience. The crew were very helpful and informative. The speedboat was fast but we felt very safe and the seating was comfortable. You leave from the Marina, which is easy to park at, and the spend 1/2 hr getting to the caves. You spend an hour going in and out of the many caves before 1/2hr trip back. Lots to see, great photo opportunities. The price was very reasonable. The whole experience was very well organised. I recommend this trip, and would definitely book another with this company.

    Highly recommend some music on the speedboat during the ride to Bengali.. It will also be nice if Days and Adventure dropped us off at the beach in Benagil cave for 10minutes for some better pictures. Tour guide was very knowledgeable about the rock formations and offered alternatives area they preferred over the Benagil. Captain made the ride enjoyable by doing some crazy stunts near the end of the tour — fun!! Check out the Bengali cave whether you do it via the tour or yourself. It is marvelous.

    Amazing experience. We booked last minute as our previously booked boat trip got cancelled due to the choppy water. The speedboat jumping across the waves was great fun and we all enjoyed it. Our guide couldn't have been nicer as well. The caves were beautiful and definitely worth a visit. A highlight of our trip!

    We got there by train at about 2 pm and had a 2:30 pm tour, the crew took care of storying our luggage, getting us to the restrooms, and making sure we were safely in the speedboat. The tour was great, a few boundy wave, but no on-board splash. The crew were expert in handling the boat in the caves and around the rock formations. They took the time to allow us to take pictures, and to absorb the beauty of the cliffs, the Roman Bridge, and the caves.

    Great trip and guide was very attentive however we felt the “speed” was a bit lacking given it was a completely calm sea. We’ve done this trip with another company in much choppier weather and they went faster & did more “tricks” which my teens loved. We did ask them could they maybe speed up a bit but despite saying they would on the way back the speed was the same…. We’d chosen it as a thrill adventure for the teens when in fact it was more of a sedate visit to the caves.

    Great experience if you're on a tight schedule or new to the area and want to get a sense of the beaches (sea). The speed boat gets into caves and navigates the water well. I was originally thinking about SUP or kayaking to the caves and preferred being in a boat bc the waters get crowded creating big waves.

    We loved this trip. The boat was very fast and so we would recommend this experience for adrenaline lovers. It is bumpy at times and wet but we enjoyed this. The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. He showed us some beautiful caves.

    It is very windy on the boat so I would recommend bringing a jumper/windproof anorak.

    This experience is a bit hard to review due to the bad fog we had that morning. The scenic ride to and from Lagos to the Benagil Caves was rather bleak because of the weather and the cruise could do nothing about it. But the average mark has nothing to do with the weather and everything to do with what the experience entails. You see the Benagil Cave from the speedboat and do not experience it from the sandy beach inside. This means you get just a few angles to view it from (cave entrance). The guide doesn't say much about the cave, except that you can take photos. The rest of the tour are similar caves (With or without the skylight openings) with very little information about the caves. We got the names: Neptune's cave, or Hells Gate but not the story behind them, or why they were called that way. I would have loved to know more about the caves, maybe some local lore that goes with them, some sailor stories, or anything really. What I am trying to say is that while the caves were beautiful, there was not much else. No story behind them, no enthusiasm from either guide or us as visitors, it was just...Meh.
    Another thing I didn't like was the dolphin chasing at the end. There was a group of dolphins at the end and there were a lot of boats chasing them, ours gave chase too. It felt wrong and intrusive in the animal's lives. normally you wait for the mammals to come to you and don't stress them out for the enjoyment of a few tourists that drew the short straw because of the fog. I am sure that the boat crew thought that they were giving us some nice moments, but it just felt wrong.
    I would encourage the team of people behind the adventure to think of ways of explaining the beautiful caves through engaging stories, nature is there, it just needs a bit more than someone saying that you can take pictures to make it a bit more memorable.

    In all our advertising it is made very clear that you cannot leave the speed boat to go on the beaches inside the caves, No Company allows this as it is too dangerous with the amount of boat traffic, especially in the Benagil cave. I apologise if you felt our onboard commentary was not to your standard this is a most unusual comment! however what if find distressing is your comments regarding seeing dolphins upon your return journey, your recollection is in complete contrast to others on board. our vessel is fully licensed to visit dolphins the professionalism of our skipper and crew are to a very high standard, you obviously know more about approaching dolphins and how to interact than our skipper with years of experience and training, we do not chase dolphins at all at any time but cannot be held responsible for unlicensed boats and there crews actions.
