We had a great time on our kayak adventure with Mike and Mario. Beforehand we had been weighing up a boat tour versus kayak because it was winter but we were really happy with our choice to kayak. The boats can't land in the cave so we had it to ourselves which was amazing.

Had a really nice time kayaking with them. The kayaking tour took us to several locations and we were able to take some time to enjoy the main cave. The guide, Mike, was really friendly and professional, making sure all the groups were prepared and safe. He checked over each cave first to make sure the conditions were safe for us, even skipping us past one that didn’t seem so safe due to waves. Overall, really great experience. Weather was chilly but still well worth the trip nonetheless.

It was an unforgettable experience that Mike and his team offered us! They are at the top! The circuit is breathtaking. We were able to discover other caves and rocks before that of Benagil which appears as the icing on the cake! The weather was perfect and the kayak ride impeccable!
