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!!

Great tour! Lots of fun paddling around the caves of the Algarve’s. The group of guys running this tour were great, they were very friendly and seemed to really enjoy what they do. You definitely get wet during this, so don’t expect to be dry by the end. They had free water, and sofa/beer for purchase on the boat. Algarve’s are amazing, and everyone should experience them up close and personal on this tour.

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.
