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.

Portimão: Kayak Tour of Benagil Caves Reviewed by Ismail, 07/15/2019

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.

Fun way to visit the cave and see the coastline

My friend and I visited the area in August 2019 - the height of summer. The tour itself was great. The boat trip along the coastline was fun and relaxed and the guilds were friendly & professional. However the caves themselves were crowded with over 100 people - everyone seemed to be there - which isn’t a fault of the tour but still made it less enjoyable. Small boats and other kyaka groups were all after the same caves and routes & made the waters rocky and difficult to navigate. I would recommend this tour, but maybe off peak or early in the morning as the crowds on the water and in the cave made the experience less enjoyable. Also take a waterproof pocket for your phone!!

Excellent tour that was the highlight of our stay in the Algarve!

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!

Une activité fantastique - des falaises et grottes époustouflantes.

The provider was easy to reach, very responsive even though we were booking at the last minute, trying to accommodate our needs. The equipment was fine, coaching ok, and guide friendly. The group of people was of course loads of fun. Being on the ocean on a SUP is a very cool experience, paddling around cliffs, rocks, into caves, swimming in little inlets and jumping off rocks, also cool. Waiting on the pictures now but overall unforgettable!
