  • 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.

    Yes, we enjoyed. The guide we had was nice and friendly as well as a good connoisseur of the sea. The only drawback is that you say that the cruise and drinks are included in the activity and that is not the case. We were not offered anything to drink on the entire tour. It is something that you should correct on your website.

  • From Lagos Marina: Ponta da Piedade Kayak Tour

    7. From Lagos Marina: Ponta da Piedade Kayak Tour

    Climb aboard the catamaran at Lagos Marina and set sail to Ponta da Piedade for a 2-hour guided kayak tour along the Algarve Coast. After leaving the Marina, the boat heads to Ponta Da Piedade, where you will discover Algarve's famous grottoes and cliffs by kayak during the 1-hour journey accompanied by a guide who will comment throughout your adventure. Spend 15 minutes relaxing and swimming in the grottoes, unknown bays and quiet beaches before heading back to Lagos Marina. Please note that throughout your tour, the catamaran will escort the group for safety and comfort reasons.

    Quite a fun experience. You get the chance to kayak through the caves and inside some of them too, which is quite impressive. Bear in mind that the duration of the tour includes the boat transportation to the caves and the trip back, so you are not actually around 2 hours kayaking. Overall I think it's a very nice experience, although I will simply rent a kayak next time and go at my own pace

    A pequena traineira tem charme. Boa a opção da limitação a 8 passageiros. Excelente a organização da viagem com a partição de dois grupos de 4 - um faz a viagem às grutas num pequeno bote e o outro fica na traineira para dar mergulhos e tomar banho naquelas águas límpidas e depois trocam. O condutor do pequeno bote que mostra as grutas é experiente e dá segurança.
