    So much fun!! We went at the end of October at 9:30am and it was a perfect time of day. We didn’t get wet at all and didn’t need to wear our flip flops. (Our toes were freezing!) Glad we dressed warmly otherwise because these boats go fast and it is really rainy. They give you great raincoats and life vests. It was well worth the $40.

    Sam and Gabi were two super nice and fun guides. Had a lot of fun during the tour. Seats on the speedboat are too uncomfortable in the long run. The stench of the exhaust gases in the caves, especially when 2 boats or more are in a cave, are very, very unpleasant. Greetings from climate change :-P

    great quick way to see the Benagil cave from Lagos

    This was a great and fast way to get to see the Benagil cave from Lagos. The only negative was that the boat ride back was very bumpy because the boat was going very fast and bouncing in the air from hitting the waves. My daughters and I loved it and thought it was fun. But my husband unfortunately suffers from back pain and the high speed wave bumping made his ride back quite painful.
