Carvoeiro Caves runs daily boat trips to the Benagil and Carvoeiro sea caves in the Lagoa area of the Algarve. Many stunning caves dot the coast, including the famous Benagil cave, and a boat trip is the best way to explore them. Carvoeiro Caves offers daily cave trips, private trips, with free parking nearby. Easy online booking. Top-ranked boat trips in Carvoeiro.

Carvoeiro Caves boat trips run from the beach in Carvoeiro, which means that they are very close to the most fascinating part of the southern Algarve coastline. Close by is the famous Benagil cave, as well as the caves by Praia da Marinha and Algar Seco. The Algarve coastline is breathtakingly beautiful and the best way to really appreciate its beauty is from the sea. By taking a trip aboard one of the Carvoeiro Caves boats, you get to enter and discover close up and in safety the amazing beauty that nature has sculpted from the rocks over thousands and thousands of years.

The water in this area is usually translucent and gleaming. Some of the caves, including the Benagil cave, are domed caves with openings in the rock which allow the sunlight to stream through and light up the water. Some of the caves are narrow, deep channels while others are wider caves with high ceilings.

Only smaller boats can explore the caves at will - the larger boats are too big to enter the caves. Carvoeiro Caves has a fleet of 4 small, modern boats that zip along the coast and can easily be manoeuvered in the caves. All the boats have an easy boarding system making them accessible to the mobility impaired - no wading through waist-high water before clambering aboard. And all boats are equipped with all safety gear as required by law. In addition, the service by the Carvoeiro Caves team, from support staff and crew is second to none.
