Nuño is a very good and funny guide with good knowledge of English and a few jokes. The rest of the crew is having fun too. The tour is not particularly strenuous and requires no previous experience, the basics are explained before the tour starts. The pure kayak tour takes about 1 hour through various caves. The guide tells something about the history of the Algarve and you play a little guessing game in which you have to guess what the rock formations remind you of :) Then it goes back to the motor boat and you can jump into the water again :). We had a lot of fun and we can only recommend the tour!

Miguel was our guide but the whole crew were very kind and genuine. We were fortunate that it was toward the end of the season do there were only three of us. Our kayak trip through some cave and around Ponta do Piedade was spectacular. The weather cooperated and it was very professionally handled.

First time kayaking felt well prepared by guide. Took the boat out of the Marina to the caves and then we got into the kayaks so was able to bring a bag and change of clothes. Boat followed us closely throughout the tour.

No better way to start your morning then a gentle kayak out at the sea! Ruben was an awesome guide - made sure everyone in the group was safe and shared lots of info about Lagos

We had an amazing time on our sea kayak trip. The crew made the amazing experience even more enjoyable! We even saw dolphins!! Would highly recommend this trip for others!!
