Wonderful 4 hour cruise Like a previous writer, the choice of cruises is bewildering, but we lucked out big time choosing the yacht Amorita. A 4 hour cruise to and from the Benagril caves, included a ride through the caves in a small inflatable boat, a small packed lunch ( ham and cheese baguette, fruit and a glass of wine). There was a cash bar also, and a very entertaining group of experienced mariners to look after us. Highlight of our holiday thus far, excellent value at 35 Euro’s. What a stunning piece of coastline, warm day (27 degrees) warm water (21 degrees). Bliss
Best value trip to Benagil Caves We knew we wanted to do a boat trip to Benagil Caves as part of our holiday. There is a bewildering array of different providers and different cruise options all at vastly different prices, so we got leaflets on all of them and over lunch compared and contrasted. We chose a 4 hour cruise from Albufeira Marina to Benagil Caves a board the Yacht Amorita. It gave us everything we wanted, a proper sail boat, you actually go into the cave in a smaller boat (some tours just peek the nose of their bigger craft into the caves and don’t go right in) and they stopped for swimming. As an added bonus the Amorita has a slide on board for the brave who want to slide off the boat into the sea!! This cruise cost 35 euro for Adults and 17.50 for children. Its not the cheapest option but there were plenty of other cruises that were more expensive. The journey to the caves takes about 90 minutes and it was quite windy so bring a hoodie unless you want to freeze. You are at the caves for about an hour as they take small groups into Benagil Cave and some of the smaller caves in a small rib. Previous reviewers expressed safety concerns, but this is the continent where health and safety rules are always more relaxed! The Rib Driver knew what he was doing, even going at high speed through a small cave opening, which made us all scream! Back on the yacht they sail slightly past Benagil and stop for lunch and swimming. Lunch was pretty decent, a good size ham and cheese baguette, crisps, an orange and a drink. I did not swim in the sea because its freezing cold, but some of our group did, taking advantage of the slide several times. Then we headed home (again took about 90 minutes) but with the wind behind us it was significantly warmer and you could do some sunbathing. As a nice touch the crew brought round a small glass of fizzy wine, think they were buttering us up for a tip! But the crew were very attentive and kind, the skipper even called up the kids to have a go steering, which they loved. All in all a great value cruise which gave us everything we wanted from our boat trip, I would highly recommend the Yacht Amorita.
Eu tenho que dizer que foi a melhor viagem de barco que eu já estive, 4 horas de duração com um lanche adorável e uma ótima equipe. Fred o capitão era tão bom, muito informativo mas não em sua face, o barco é bonito, você transfere em um bote para as visitas de caverna que estavam pasmando. O preço foi brilhante € 35 que é uma barganha. Como alguém pode culpar este dia está além de mim, eu recomendo totalmente que você faça esta viagem e você não vai se arrepender.
Great value for money and a fabulous trip we loved every minute! We took a 3 hour trip on the yacht Amorita and sailed along the coast line looking at the beaches and rock formations up to the caves. Fred the captain was great fun - and his mate ( sorry forgot his name) were a great double act - giving interesting information as we enjoyed the sailing. They even let all the children on board take a turn at steering the boat. There are drinks and snacks on board to purchase. They stop to allow people to swim and have a slide to enter the water. The view inside the caves was amazing. The trip back was also fun and the crew raised the sails for the trip back. This trip was worth every penny we paid and we would love to go again. Highly recommend
