    Overall an excellent experience and the caves were amazing. At the start it was unclear what we were doing and my fiancée and I ended up getting taken by a wave into a rocky section and cutting ourselves quite badly. The instructors were quick to help us and offered first aid as soon as we finished which was great. Would definitely recommend for someone looking to see the wonderful sights of the Algarve while testing themselves.

    It was so beautiful, guides were great at showing us where to go and making sure no one got left behind. I heard in Lagos a boat will pull you back after venturing out so that would have been nice haha, it was a bit of a workout but so worth it.

    This was definitely the best way to explore the caves around Benagil beach area. We loved the whole tour and the scenery was just incredible. It was our first time kayaking but after a quick and brief explanation by the guides we knew what to do, it wasn’t difficult. Guides were always around to help with kayaks and explain parts of the tour. I’d definitely do it again!
