      With Lagos Grotto Trips you can explore the amazing and widely known caves of Ponta da Piedade (Point of Mercy), which truly reveal the wonderful coastline of Lagos. You will get to see many small beaches only accessible by boat and listen to exciting and funny stories of Lagos. Reaching Ponta da Piedade, you will experience a lagoon filled with turquoise water which is surrounded by beautiful cliffs and unique rock formations, here we will enter its caves with an unforgettable and natural beauty. With a little imagination, some of these fantastic rocks can make you think of twins, the Titanic, an elephant and a camel´s head.

      An excellent trip with an excellent crew
      This was an excellent trip. Jack our captain was an expert mariner and very good at explaining what we were seeing. It was low tide so we were able to get into caves that are only accessible then. We had seen the Ponte de Piedade from above, tut it's a whole different experience seeing it from the water.

      Amazing and Awe-Inspiring Trip
      We took the Lagos Grotto Boat Tour to the Benagil Caves as a family of 6 adults. Angelo was our guide and Maycon was out Captain. It was a great experience in every way. The caves were awe-inspiring and the beauty and vastness of the Atlantic Ocean was incredible, but the entire experience was made all the more enjoyable by the stories that Angelo related to us and his sense of humor. Maycon even performed some impressive moves with the boat. It was truly a great time and I highly recommend you asking for Angelo and Maycon.

      Very nice boat tour
      Tour guide was amazing, he showed us so many nice views beside the Benagil cave that was absolutely stunning. We stayed at the cave for 5 minutes enjoying the scenery and taking great photos. However, I wish I booked this tour from some other, closer place to Benagil cave as the boat ride from Lagos till we reached our destination was a bit too long in my opinion

      Lagos hi speed boat trip to Benagil Sea Caves. We would use Lagos Grotto trips again and again. They are five star.
      Our safety is and was there highest priority. We felt very safe. The captain and first mate explained every cave we went in to.

      Far Exceeded My Expectations
      The Lagos Grotto Tours expedition was a perfect blend of high speed cruising, slow exploring and just enough time stopped to take photographs that I will remember forever. The crew were supportive and knowledgeable and made the whole experience better by their presence. I enjoyed it so much that I signed up for another tour with the same group later in the week.

      Do not pass by this experience.
      Did a 2 hour kayak trip out of Lagos. Many to choose from. Lots of vendors selling their excursions but “ Captain Carlos/Charlie” with Kayak Adventures hooked us up with a great experience. Our kayak guide MÁRIO was excellent! He made sure that he personally made contact and common ground with each group on the trip. He told us about each spot and shared folklore about sites. Always attentive and keeping us together and safe admit the speed boats visiting the same sites. A beautiful experience that we will remember forever.

      WOW!
      Wow! What an adventure! A highly experienced duo of Angelo and Maylon took on a magnificent boat tour, dodging wind, rain and other less experienced guides. Our visit to the caves was magical, unlike anything I had seen before. But, professional was the best part. Lagos Grotto Trips and Angelo and Maylon are the best! Try it and see. Thank you!

    The whole experience from booking to the actual trip felt safe and honest. Humberto took us out on the boat and was a swift and capable skipper. The scenery is absolutely stunning and made fun and even more impressive by his ability to take us through entrances and caves that other boats completely avoided.
    Would definitely book again!

    My boyfriend and I booked the boat tour to Ponta da Pidade. The tour was really great. Jack was our tour guide. He spoke English and Spanish very well. He was very friendly, funny and made the tour very enjoyable. He provided a lot of background information as we were passing through different points and gave us tips on what to visit in the city and what beaches are the best. We had a great time and would definitely recommend this tour.

    Very good tour at an acceptable price. Jack the tour guide was very friendly and would throw the occasional joke in there, which made it even better! Contrary to other boat tours, our guide didn’t skip anything and and went into every single cave, if the tide allowed it. Very safe, friendly and educational. Seemed very touristy but I’d definitely recommend this to orher people, if you can allow yourself a tour for 20€!

    Where do I begin? Captain Jack, you were amazing.
    Within Lagos there are so many boat trips to choose from. Well, I am SO glad I chose this company.

    Due to Lagos being quiet we had the boat to ourselves… it was magical. I think even if the boat tour was shared with other guests, it still would have been amazing.

    Jack is so knowledgeable, he answers every questions we had, told us all about each point we reached, all about Lagos, gave us a local food food recommendations, took some fantastic photos of us on the boat and in the caves, and was just overall so personable.

    He kept us entertained showing off his amazing boat driving skills, and made the experience so much more incredible than we ever thought it would be.

    If you’re looking into which boat tours to go with, go with this company. You simply will not regret it. Plus, we saw tones of other boats from other companies crammed with people with instructors hardly saying a word.

    Go and have the experience of a life time!

    We were early in the morning and got the boat only for ourselves (5 persons). Our captain, Angelo was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of interesting information and stories with us. He did a great job answering all our questions and was a good entertainer in the same time. His sailing skill are top notch 👌

    The lady at the booth (sorry, I don't remember the name) was very nice and professional. She even gave us instructions on where can we get a different tour for Benagil cave that's suitable for our 2 years old son (involves driving).

    Based on our own experience and what I saw and heard from other boat captains (in the crowed places your can get hear the other tourists boats) I can fully recommend this to friends and I probably book it again (different tour) if I ever go back to Lagos.

    Very interesting tour with Pedro as our guide. There are many tour operators along the marina so we were lucky to have picked this cave tour that was leaving within 5 minutes of our booking it. Pedro was very knowledgeable pointing out all the different rock formations and beaches. We had four people from Germany on the boat with us and Pedro switched from English to German at every stage of the tour so neither party missed out at any stage of the tour. Pedro was a very friendly guide and it was a very enjoyable trip lasting a little over 1.25 hours. Even saw an enormous jellyfish.

    Boat trips were cancelled two days in a row while we were in Lagos due to rough seas. Finally, on the afternoon of the second day, Captain Jack from Lagos Grotto Trips decided he could take a small boat out. It was the highlight of our trip! We were so happy to get on the water and see the amazing rock formations. Captain Jack was a very good and talented driver -- yes, the seas were rough, but he timed the waves right so we were still able to go in and out of the caves. It was a thrilling and great experience!

    This is a must do when visiting Lagos. Captain 'Jack Sparrow' was a great host and made us feel very safe. He was an excellent 'driver' also, wizzing us in and out of the tiny caves etc and had great knowledge of all the key things to look at / photograph.

    Ivo (skipper) and Ivana (1st mate) took us on a great tour of the beaches and rock formations around the southwestern coast of Lagos. Starting out from the marina, heading out down the river and under the lifting bridge we passed Connie at her kiosk and waved. We're a family of four and our son & daughter loved talking to Connie and getting an idea for what we were going to see. Once out into the bay we took in the sights and knowledge explained by Ivo and were then quickly into the shallow caves and chimneys of the rocks. Expert piloting took us through narrow and otherwise inaccessible caves and tunnels. We wended our way West for an hour looking at how different rock formations looked like particular animals (camels, elephants, King Kong) while nimbly getting up close to the rock faces and hidden pools behind. The hour flew by and then it was time to head for home. Managing to wave at Connie again on the way back up the river, the kids were desperate to give her a thumbs' up. Thanks Ivo, Ivana and Connie, a wonderful treat on my daughter's birthday which will be hard to beat next time we come to visit!

    Guide G was our captain with Jose his skipper. It was a choppy sea because of the sea swell that day but G made the ride comfortable with his excellent boating skills. He took time to explain the history and show the rock formations. He even knew which erosions were very recent than others. We got time to take pictures and he gave us a tour of all the Lagos beaches on the way. Would recommend this tour.
