  • From Lagos: Algarve Coast and Caves by Kayak

    1. From Lagos: Algarve Coast and Caves by Kayak

    Journey to one of the top highlights of the Algarve: the Lagos Caves. Hop in a kayak for an active and adventurous trip to the characteristic rock formations that continue to charm visitors with their mystique and beauty. Let your experienced guide lead you to the most impressive caves on the Algarve coastline. Learn how the beautiful shapes and patterns decorating the cave walls were created by sea erosion and get to know the unique flora and fauna of the area while snorkeling. Then enjoy a relaxing stay at a beach which is solely accessible by boat. If you don't feel like paddling back, opt to ride on the support boat, which will be close by at all times during your trip.

    Our guide took us through so many small caves and arches. He led us down close to the coast so we could see all the details. He didn’t rush us so we had time to enjoy the beauty and take pics. They provide a dry bag so you can bring your bag with you or they have lockers. They tow you back with a boat so you only paddle one way. We absolutely loved it. It was convenient to book online.

After your kayak adventure, get the chance to go for a swim in the crystal clear waters. Then, jump back on board and relax on the way back to the city.

    Very helpful to have a knowledgeable guide take us into the caves. Boat was very smooth and swimming off the boat was great fun. 2 hours was enough. the 3 hour trips would involve a lot more effort!

Work off some energy on the trampoline or inflatable water park.

    Laze in the sun on the way back to Lagos but keep an eye open to spot dolphins in their natural environment.

    Boatcruise was very fun and relaxed with a super friendly crew who did a great job, i can absolutely recommend!

    Hop into a jetboat for a 45-minute spin around Lagos. After meeting at the dock, your captain will give you a quick safety briefing, describing the rip-roaring maneuvers that you’re about to experience. Then you’ll be off on the jetboat, its powerful motor shooting out a rushing stream of water, allowing it to go much faster than traditional boats.  With Ponta da Piedade in view, you’ll arrive at the ideal playground for your jetboat adventure. Experience 360° turns, rapid stops, and lots of fun splashing to cool you off from the hot day — but you can put anything you don’t want to get wet in the provided lockers before you board. After your thrilling ride through the harbor, you’ll head back to the dock, having taken in an exciting new perspective of Lagos.

    Well organised trip. Great skipper. Loads of fun - be prepared to get extremely wet.

At first I was very upset because I selected and thought I booked a kayak tour of Benagil Cave but, after taking this tour, I thoroughly enjoyed the guide, views, and experience.

Boatcruise was very fun and relaxed with a super friendly crew who did a great job, i can absolutely recommend!

Loved the fact that you kayak around the coast with a guide who tells you about each stop.

The guide was fun, I'm happy that I did choose this trip :)
