Overview
Gain access to the tight spaces of the Ponta de Piedade grottoes on this tour, which uses specially-designed boats to access more of the seascape. Your captain navigates the small boat into the nooks and crannies of the grottoes along Portugal’s Atlantic coast, renowned for its unusual rock formations and caverns. Learn about the formation of the landscape through the guide's commentary. You'll travel in a small group of just 10 people or fewer, which provides plenty of time to ask questions.
What to Expect
Make your own way to Marina de Lagos to meet your guide and group at your selected departure time. Boats leave regularly between 9:45am and 5:15pm, which ensures you can find a time that fits your vacation schedule.
Step aboard a low-profile vessel, specially designed for navigating the tight spaces in the Ponta de Piedade grottoes. With a small group of 10 people or fewer, this tour has an intimate atmosphere and offers plenty of time to ask questions.
Relax and enjoy the ocean breeze and unusual scenery, composed of sandstone cliffs punctuated by tiny grottoes and secluded beaches. Let the captain show his or her expertise while navigating the tight spaces and tough turns that you would never try on your own, while providing commentary on the formation and geological details of the Atlantic coast.
Return to Marina de Lagos at the conclusion of your tour.

Excitement!

We very much enjoyed the trip to the Benghali Caves. We experienced rather rough seas, but never felt unsafe. We had a great crew! Such beautiful ocean and caves...

Yes, it is not physically exerting. You will be sitting on the boat for about 1 - 1.5 hours. The guide can help you get in and out of the boat.
