Passengers rescued from leaking tourist boat

Thirty-two people had to be rescued this weekend from a tourist boat that started taking on water after scraping against a rock on an Algarve cave tour.

The rupture is understood to have happened after the Manguito boat broke down on a coastal cruise along the Algarve coastline on Saturday afternoon and ran into a rock.

It was heading back to Portimão when it ran aground on the Portimão Marina beach to avoid sinking; all people on board, among them five children, were rescued “swiftly and efficiently”.
