What people are saying about Portimão

The entire experience was great! The hosts were very careful and safety focused. They had so much knowledge and took us in all caves with a lot of energy. I think the best part was when we got to Benagil cave and the waves were a bit strong to arrive on the beach, all the hosts got in the water and waited for all 20 kayaks. If they would have not done that everyone could have fallen in the water. Amazing experince overall

We definitely underestimated how physically challenging this would be! I can’t remember all the guides names but they were all so friendly and helpful, one of them noticed my insulin pump and was absolutely amazing in making sure I was okay throughout. Would recommend this in a heartbeat not only for the tour/kayaking experience but more than anything for the gentlemen that work at seasiren tours!

Amazing experience and really helpful and friendly crew. They also provided wind jackets and waterproof mobile covers for few members. They took videos and shared it with the travellers later via instagram for free. Definitely worth the experience. Being a first timer, I would not rate the activity tough or extensive.

Really fun experience!!! The crew was really welcoming and helpful. There is a good amount of time spent on the kayak and a lot to explore. They give you time to take pictures and to have a bath in the sea before heading back to the port. Definitely recommended!!! Ps: nice choice of music on the way back! :)

Very good activity! I think it is the best way to visit not only the Benagil Cave but also other caves in that part of the Algarve coast.
