What people are saying about Carvoeiro
Mario was a great guide on this exciting trip. After a short safety and instructional chat on the beach we were paddling along the sea cliffs. High tide and chopping conditions made it quite exciting, especially landing and departing from the beach in the cave. Be prepared to get cold and wet, and make some graceless exits from your kayak! The worst thing was the sheer number of powered boats in the water but the best thing was feeling superior as we paddled our own kayak. We met Mario at his truck parked in front of tiny Benagil beach where we collected a life jacket and paddle before heading down to the water. I recommend this tour to anyone with a little fitness and a sense of adventure.
This was a fun and memorable tour. We had a group with mixed abilities and our guide did very well to keep everyone together (not an easy task!). In addition to the cave, which is awe-inspiring, we saw a number of other beautiful landscapes from our unique vantage point. We had sufficient time to get out at the cave, look around and take pictures - something you can't do from a speed boat! The cave was busy but the guides managed our entrance safely. Would highly recommend this tour!
Host were excellent and nature at its best. It is one of our best 2,5 hours spent, this trip is worth every penny. Ice tea was served in the boat, as complimentary. Loreonzo did excellent explanation and Miguel had excellent sense of humour with total control on the boat. All in all, one of the most memorable trip.
Fabulous views and tour guide letting us know what all the different caves and beaches were called! Boat is bumpy tho on the Portuguese waves, my friend was sick but still thoroughly enjoyed. No toilet in board so important to go before trip FYI.
The host “Mario” is so nice, in this kayak experience tour he took care all of us to many sightseeing points especially for go inside to Benagil Cave (secret cave). Next time we will join his tour and recommend friends to join this tour.
