      Be prepared that you might not see dolphins and you can get soaked!
      IF you are interested in a dolphin safari consider this experience but note there are no guarantees that you will see dolphins. First, book on TA as they have much better prices than booking direct with them of having your hotel book. They do not honor TA prices which where 4 Euros less per person. In the future, I would not book this kind of boat unless the waters were calm. This is the first time I did not see dolphins, and have had reservations that were cancelled before hand when a different boating company felt the likely was very low due to the weather. We did not see any dolphins, which is not the company's fault as dolphins are wild animals but all we got out of the experience was a very bumpy boat ride and coming back soaked. I would have preferred a larger boat so you did not need to hide your face as the boat speed along looking for the dolphins. We had a marine biologist on board which would have been wonderful, even with out the dolphins, if he explained something rather that just driving the boat. The only thing that was said is that they were looking for birds feeding, which is one way that they spot the dolphins. They do supply a red wind breaker, but since it is short jacket, our pants were soaked- so think about when you go and how you dress. It is probably a fabulous experience when the weather conditions are calm and you can see the dolphins. I felt the boat trip should have been cancelled as they cancelled the afternoon boat trip the day before and 2:00 on that day as well. They did place people, sitting people with possible back issues in the two back rows which haave ros seats instead on individual padded bars.

      Algarve Grotto Tour a Must See
      We bought tickets last minute, the check in was easy. Our boat captain and the your guide were amazing. The boat captain skills for driving the boat and getting into the caves were awesome. Our tour guide was a young man from England who was amazing. He gave us some much background and information. Even places to visit, beaches and restaurants. He made our trip really wonderful. I wish I remembered both of their names!

      Best tour of our trip
      Excellent tour! We were able to go into sea caves safely via the pontoon boat. The Bengali Cave was a MUCH better view this way than the land tour where we just looked in from the top. On the way back, we saw dolphins right next to our boat. The boat captain was respectful of the dolphins. It was the pod of dolphins that chose to swim under and around the boat. I highly recommend this tour. If you go in the winter, remember to dress extra warmly.

      Great dolphin views in the wild
      The crew was friendly and knowledgeable. We spotted great dolphins in the wild. When we had some time left the crew took us to see some nice views along the shore. Great work team. Thanks!

      What a day! Once in a lifetime experience - dolphins in the middle of the ocean! Can't wait to repeat ❤️🐬
      Incredibly professional and clearly well trained staff, that took us to some 10km off shore to a life changing experience! These dolphin sightings were off the chart and were the cherry on top of the cake for our holidays in Portugal! Looking forward to a next one, thank you Dolphin Seafaris!!

      Somewhat passionless
      Wish to have received a bit more more information about the wildlife instead of driving around, stopping for 5min to be told to look here and there and then rushing back, when finally the first dolphin appeared. The description talked about a marine biologist and we didn't experience this benefit at all compared to another dolphin-watching tour. However, the ride was fun and we had a quick peek at this beautiful animal.

      Great trip!
      Overall experience was good. We found a lot of dolphins! The only mistake we made is that we dis not put windbreakers that were provided to us. Even though it is very hot in the port you definitely need these once on the water! Staff did not instructed to put these straight away and we dis not had a chance to put it on later. Thats the only “bad” thing from the experience :)

    This was a great way to see the caves. The boat was large and so we felt much safer than many of the smaller boats no bigger than a dingy and overloaded. The boat captain was very professional and also very knowledgeable, which made for a very worthwhile trip. We had the fortunate circumstance of encountering a pod of orca dolphins, for which we stopped to photograph. All in all an amazing trip!

    Amazing experience! A warm and friendly welcome, then directed to the harbour where we got on to our boat, there was no waiting around! We were lucky enough to see dolphins on our way to the Benagil caves which we were so happy about, especially since you can pay €€ for a dolphin watching tour itself. The caves were incredible, we managed to visit at least 5, driving into/through some of them, and getting interesting facts from our amazing tour guide and captain Antonio and Sam! The water wasn’t choppy, although the wind can get a little cold on the way to/from the caves - but with a jacket (as advised) it’s absolutely fine. Great value for money and the perfect length of time for the tour, would definitely do it again. Thank you Lagos Grotto Tours, this was one of the highlights of our holiday.

    Considering a boat tour is pretty much the main way to go see the Benagil caves if you are staying only in Lagos, I am quite happy with the tour. You get close enough from the inside to have a very good view and take great pictures. I simply find that the time spent in/near the caves seems small in comparison to the overall transportation time. It would be a nice bonus to be able to stop and swim from the boat but I haven’t seen any tour offering this.

    The boat ride along the coastline seeing the cliffs and caves was awesome. The boat captain explained things well and going into some of the caves to see the inside was a fun experience. It was two hours well spent.

    It was an amazing experience! It was more than I expected. There are no words
    to describe the awesomeness of the Benagil Sea Caves. The boat captain was an experienced navigator who took us into tight spaces. We visited some other caves also. The boat ride to the caves from Lagos along the picturesque coast line was breath taking! The guide who narrated was also superb.

    We stay in Lagos after having spent a few days in Lisbon.

    I was looking at taking a boat tour to Benagil Cave and discovered that there are a few departure points along the coast of the Algarve. Portimao, Carvoeiro, Albufeira and of course, Benagil Beach, being the closest to the cave. However, there are very few parking there.

    Then I looked into those operators out of Lagos and discovered that a few are at the Marina with plenty of free parking available.

    Dolphine Seafaris as recommended by a travel book I have been reading, has a strong reputation.

    The lady Edidas at the office / booth in the Marina has also been very friendly and helpful in showing me where to find free parking on the day of tour.

    Our guide, Sam and our captain Erik both are very good, making our trip very fun and exciting. After seeing Benagil, on our way back they took us to visit a few more interesting caves and rock formations.

    The day was warm and sunny with no wavy waters also make the trip that much more enjoyable.

    All in all, it has been a fabulous trip, above my expectations. I highly recommend it. It's safe and well worth it. Go out there to enjoy a fun 2 hours on the water to admire the beauty created by God. You are in good hands under Dolphin Seafaris.

    Amazing experience, beautiful spots, interesting facts about the caves and the surrounding towns. An additional fun part is breaking the waves with the speed boat. Be prepared for the wind, some water and the speed.

    Great experience. Impressive caves. Loved it. Take extra clothes in a waterproof bag. we got really wet and cold because the sea was wavy, water came to the boat.
    I have long hair, I regret leaving them loose because the wind made a mess.
    You may want to put a hat or put ear plugs because the wind was cold.
    We sat at the back, which was good because we could stand and see everything better
    We went with a 2 year child with no problem.
    The boat went inside Benagil cave but we could not come out of the boat. For that you need a canoe.
    Sit on the right side of the boat for the better view.

    We really enjoyed the trip we had. We took the 10 am trip and the water was flat so that was very nice. But the views were great and the captain helped make getting great pictures easy. We Love the beaches, sites and of course Bengali. The information shared by the crew was very good as well. We would definitely recommend Seafaris and this particular trip to anyone

    With a marine biologist on board, we were expecting more sharing on the marine life around the Algarve during our tour. Seafaris could also consider requesting their guide to speak louder or wear a portable speaker so that everyone on the boat could hear what is being shared.

    Aside from the above, it was a great experience with the tour starting and ending on time.
