Went specifically for this tour after reading the reviews and can honestly say we weren’t disappointed. Despite only 4 of guests on the boat (maximum capacity of about 12) the trip went ahead so we had an almost private tour. The guides were friendly, funny and have excellent language skills, clearly passionate about the area and this came across in the way they talked about everything. On the way back to Portimão we took some extra time to go looking for dolphins (the guides offered to extend the tour for no extra cost) and we saw several bottle nosed dolphins. A fantastic experience and highly recommended!!

Also want to recognise the tour guides for making a couple of slight detours to fish out some rubbish from the water. Testament to their love for the area and definite plus point in my book.

We did the 2-hour trip to the Benagil cave and really enjoyed the trip on the speedboat. The two guides described everything and tried to maneuver us in almost every cave in which other your groups did not even have a glimpse. To be honest the Benagil cave was not the most spectacular (we liked the captains/pirate cove the most). The fast trip back to Portimao was also fun. We would definitely recommend visiting the coastline with these guys.

My brother and I did the Royal Nautic Cave tour while be were on holidays from Canada and the experience was more than expected. The picturesque scenery was breathtaking. The boat ride was a lot of fun.

Of special note was the great job done by the tour guide, whose name was Tiago. He quickly jumped from speaking both English and Portuguese to all the customers. He really knew a lot about the Caves and the historical significance of the caves and the Algarve region of Portugal. Moreover, he was extremely friendly and personable. He is an amazing tour guide and allowed us to truly experience this beautiful region of Portugal.

We had a great tour of the beaches and caves on Monday 24 Sept.
The boat carries 10 passengers of which we were 3 and is ideal for seeing some of the worlds best beaches and ocean caves.....Tiago and his colleague were excellent. They conversed very easily in English and Portuguese which made the trip all the more enjoyable....we stopped for a short very refreshing swim about half-way thru....all in all this is the company to use.

My brother and I were in Portimao for the day and wanted to take a boat tour through the caves, with plenty of booths to choose from we ended up booking with Royal Nautic and were completely blown away. Our tour guide, Tiago, was full of knowledge and made the tour interactive for everyone on the boat. There was 2 languages groups and without and issue he was able to make sure both groups were given the full experience by hoping back and forth. The tour given blew away every expectation. I would recommend anyone travelling to Portimao to check out Royal Nautic’s tours, you won’t be disappointed. 5/5 stars for these guys I had an amazing experience!
