We looked a little last minute and this place had spaces. They have a good selection of different times of day and lots of kayaks to make different groups. Loads of fun, stunning caves and rocks. Kids 10 and 12 were fine. Highly recommended.
Our guide was great. He took the time to stop and explain the significance of certain rock formations, beaches, and caves. We traveled a considerable distance and explored many different caves and cliffs. We were also given the opportunity to stop and rest on a beach that was largely inaccessible by land. The sights are beautiful and the kayaking itself is fun.
It was really nice but tough for the arms because we paddle in teams of two on a long distance. Some people were pulled by a boat on the way back because, so there's this option. The beaches and caves were beautiful. The guides were nice and patient for people were kayaking for the first time. My kayak partner, which i met there , was very cool so its fine if your alone.I had a great time
Highly recommended. Excellent and safety conscious tour guides helped people navigate the cave entries in slightly tricky conditions. We were very lucky to be able to do this trip at the very end of the season due to a heatwave and ocean swell within the safety limit for the sit on top kayaks. A full 3 hour tour, very good value. You need to be up for quite a workout. Cave and cliff scenery spectacular, and a quiet beach destination for a half hour or so of swimming or snorkeling. We did not like the motorized tour boats not keeping their distance from the kayaks and butting in ahead of us to enter the caves where they cause unpleasant if temporary air pollution but this seems to be inevitable in this region so dependent on tourism.
This is a fantastic trip. Not too much exertion as there were breaks taken to ensure the small group was together. Would be great if we could take photos while in the caves. Our personal items like phones/cameras are in waterproof bags and not much time to stop and unwrap to take a photo. Otherwise, this is a highly recommended activity to get up close in the caves, swim on a secluded beach and experience the Algarve and its spectacular beauty.
I really enjoyed this 3 hour kayaking trip out of Lagos in Portugal. The guida was knowledgeable and easy going with a good handle on safety. He made sure we saw some really neat rock formations and caves along the coast. The pace was moderate, though the wind and water were a bit rough, so it could be a challenge for some. This is a great way to view the coast line of the area!
Fantastic trip. Very professionally organised. Our guide Jorges was most friendly, kind and patient. Our group was 6 double kayaks. You get drybags to put your stuff in though they're not massive so pack lightish. A quick briefing and you're off. You get to dip in and out of caves and through rock arches, then a bit of a relax on the beach before heading back. There are frequent stops so you can have a rest and get your camera out of the bag for some snaps.
The paddle back is MUCH I'd say 3 or 4 times harder than the paddle out, so if you're not sure, I would get towed back with the support boat. We were done in by the time we got back, though glad we challenged ourselves.
Only downside, which is of course out of the company's control, are the number of motorboats plying their trade around the caves etc. They're often more than a little grumpy with the kayakers and don't really make any allowance for you. A consequence of such a beautiful place is the number of people there - nothing you can do about that! But that said, I'd heartily recommend this trip to anyone.
This is by far the best way to appreciate the unique coastline of Lagos with its trademark sandstone rock formations carved into innumerable formations by sea erosion over millenia. The tour staff was patient, courteous and helpful. Our family of five including teens and tweens had a blast.
