Gorgeous views and we loved that this was a smaller group (8 of us total). The boat that takes you to the start of the kayaking is really nice and spacious and the staff were so fun and friendly!

A guide, a skipper, a great staff! I spent an unforgettable kayak tour with some anecdotes and a playful story. I loved it!
Amazing and memorable ocean kayak tour.
Maxim_K, Jun 2022
The tour on the ocean and through the caves paddling in our kayaks was amazing. The tour guides and boat crew were all excellent, and helped make the experience memorable.
Fun way to see the coastline
Helen_B, Jun 2022
This was a great way to see the caves and rock formations along the coast - our guide was excellent and although the water got quite choppy, we all had fun. Added bonus of a bit of a swim before we headed back. Would definitely recommend.
Wonderful adventure on the water
Lucie_W, Oct 2021
The tour was really great. Well organised. Crew and guide were lovely. We sailed out a short way to the caves and then hopped in the kayaks to explore the coast and caves. We were novice kayakers but they taught us some tips. Poitr the guide who took us out on to the caves was really entertaining and looked after us well. Then we had a swim in the beautiful water. Definitely would recommend. It was really good value and a great experience.
Great Tour! Definitely worth it!!

Great way to see the Ponta Da Piedade
Emily_R, Aug 2021
Quick boat ride and then we were in the water in our kayaks. Small group of 10 people, so we were able to move quickly and see a lot of caves. José gave us lots of background info. At the end, we had a few minutes to jump off the boat and swim. Highly recommend!
Fab experience

Great tour
Tom, Sep 2020
Great tour... cruisin through the piedade caves with a great guide as Pjotr...nicest thing I did in the Algarve
An amazing first experience!
AndreaPaolo, Aug 2020
For us it was the first time that we tried kayaking in the ocean and my girlfriend was especially afraid of this experience. However the crew explained and took the time to reinsure us and Rodriguez took extra care of us in the water, checking up on us in all the stops and giving advises. It was an amazing experience and we will definitely recommend it. Thank you guys for all your professionalism and care!

Time well spent! Guides were great, and kayak prep was thorough and efficient. Good organization and route plan to visit the caves, and with good spirited commentary on surroundings. Guides were great in keeping group together, and handling unexpected situations.

Great few hours!
Gary_R, Oct 2019
I had a few days spare and thought this would be a great way of spending the time especially as the weather was really good. The trip was well organised and instructors thorough. My only criticism is that whole it was a 2 hour trip you only got to kayak through the caves for an hour. Otherwise it was time well spent!
Must Do!
alisondaly56, Sep 2019
Fun efficient and helpful staff made the excursion especially Red. The ease of launching and pulling in the kayaks took all the pain and anxiety out of the activity. Great 2 hours
Fun tour with great guides
RussellCook1, Sep 2019
My friends and I had a great time! Guides were very nice and made sure everyone was ok (even when I felt a bit sea sick!). We were able to leave bags, phones etc. All on the boat while in the kayaks. Showed round some amazing caves and made sure the group stayed together well and knew where they had to go to stay safe when there are other boats around. Even got some time at the end to swim in the sea and sun tan! Would highly recommend this tour!
