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. Travel in a small group of just 10 people or fewer, which provides 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.

The cruise was great and so much to see, with the hidden beaches, Caves and rock formations. The historical landmarks of old ports an military strong holds was totally unexpected. We would definitely do it again.
