We leave Portimao in #Yacht Manguito, Captain Miguel put the vests on children and began a trip we went through several caves, very close and sometimes we'd go too deep. What is amazing for a boat with those dimensions, if not see, did not believe,...More

Great tour departing from Portimão that took us inside many different caves always in a fun environment with music and with live comments about what we were watching. Kids have lots of fun and loved the birds!

We booked this tour last minute and then read the reviews so was a little worried! However, we really enjoyed it! We made our own way to the marina and had no problem finding the boat. The crew were welcoming and if people have found...More

Avoid at all costs. I'm only sorry I didn't read the reviews before handing over €30 to these Pirates. Not even so bad it's good - truly unpleasant. Many people were sick, parrots were cruelly treated - but the real low point was when the...More

AVOID YATCH MANGUITO Much like others have previously said, we wish we looked at the reviews before spontaneously booking the trip! Before we even got onto the boat it was 30 minutes late, and we received no apologies for the delay! To begin the trip...More

Looking forward to this with my daughter and wife. Picked up by the captain and his wife (I assume), driven to another location to get someone else who didn't turn up (lucky them!). He then drove to a local shop and disappeared for 20 minutes...More

Got collected from our hotel about 30 minutes after we were told to wait which made us panic that we've missed it or had been screwed out of money. The boat trip itself was pleasant the caves and scenery was great we did feel bad...More

The Captain of this boat is one of the rudest people I've ever met, who rips people off in his trips to the Caves. He offers "free pick ups" but essentially it's only what works for him and you're made think he's doing you a...More
