What people are saying about Algarve

Highly recommended but could be better organised

The experience overall was great. No messing about and straight out into the water. Two things that could've been better: firstly, we of course knew that other boats would be using the waters but it really wasn't made clear the proximity at which this was, which amateur kayakers will really find unnerving. I can't stress this enough, especially as you're entering caves with approaching boats in a space hardly big enough. Also, at the start of the journey, it was very unclear which direction we had to go in: some people shot off in one direction while other groups headed for a nearby cave. This meant that organisers had to split up and get groups back together, which could've been avoided. Saying that, Jaoa(?) was an absolute breath of fresh air. He made sure we felt safe and reassured every step of the way and made the entire experiece a thousand times more enjoyable. Overall, a great experience. The caves were impressive but it was jist nice to be out on the waters.

Amazing & unusual night watching the stars & picnic, very informative

I booked this for my husband who enjoys photography and thought i would be reading a book for the evening. When Paulo arrived at our front door we found out that we were the only ones for the tour and he had come to Vilamora especially for us, he really made the effort. He was very informative along the way to the beach and once we got there. e laid a blanket on the sand, bottle of wine and cooked us a traditional black pig sausage dish and explained where it came from. Then he went on to the sky which I found really interesting although I am not into the starts at all. My husband found it really helpful with night time photography. We go to Vilamora every year and if Paulo is doing a similar activity next year we will defiantly go. Highly recommended, brilliant night. Thank you.

Algarve Night Photography Trip in VW T2 Van Reviewed by Nicola, 07/16/2019

Left very late with no info but Great trip

The instructions said to arrive 20 minutes before departure which we did. The boat was very late arriving - 30 minutes. So we departed one hour late. The rep who appeared at the gate was completely useless. Just said “ oh the boat should be here” with about 35 people left wondering if it would arrive at all. Once on board the trip was excellent and the crew superb. Don’t ask people to arrive early when there is a perfectly understandable possibility that the incoming boat will be late. The rep needs to be in communication with the boat and needs to relay the ETA as a bare minimum. It would also have been a good gesture to offer everyone a free drink in light of the delay - a vet low price option to show some customer focus.

Amazing tour with friendly, professional guides!

The crew is excellent, speaking nice English, knowledgeable about the sights and were driving the boat crazy good (even in challenging weather conditions). The tour along the shores was amazing, visited several caves, including the famous Benagil cave! We had plenty of time to take pictures, though we did not have the opportunity to get off the boat in the Benagil cave (it might be due to regulation?). Anyway, we also went far away from the coast to see dolphins and were lucky enough to catch some :) Tips&tricks: put on the jacket they provide (it's windy and cold out there), prepare with dry clothes as we got wet from head to toe.

Very nice ride...but bumpy if there is wind!

We enjoyed our ride. Luis and Mauro are very professional; they made us feel very comfortable and there was a good atmosphere. But one thing must be said: this ride is for people who like big emotions and not for the fainthearted! There was wind when we took it and the boat was jumping really high up and down the waves so that was a bit scary. We all had life jackets so that was good but you are not attached to the seat. We were told by staff we were perfectly safe and I believe it's true... One of the kids on the boat was afraid but the other kids loved it! I recommend but a bit too adventurous for me!
