What people are saying about Silves

Great, active experience! The water was rougher the day we went but the tour group kept us all safe while ensuring we would have a good experience. They had 4 guides with 9 of us to help us get in and out of the kayaks on the shore, which was essential on a day like ours!

Very good , we were a group of 6 friends and had loads of fun , Nuno and his brother were really amazing with all of the members and explain everything along the way , we even were able to got out of the kayak and have a swim in the open sea

The route has been super nice and interesting. The guide explained in several languages and was understood very well, also very nice. Highly recommended as you visit places that cannot be accessed otherwise.

It is worth doing this route, very good treatment of the guides, they are attentive to you and the caves and coves you pass through are wonderful. I recommend it 100%.

Excellent guide, very knowledgeable. Amazing views of the caves and surrounding beaches.
