    Our guides were very knowledgeable and made it so much fun! They had a lot of patience, and also gave us time to jump in water and enjoy the scenery.
    The crew to hire!
    Marcandre2roy, Aug 2022
    We were with Adam, the Irish. It was simply awesome. So caring and reassuring as we braved the choppy waters throughout the multiple beautiful site the Algrave had to propose. Strongly recommend Adam and his crew to guide you through the beauty of the Benagil!
    You will enjoy this Kayak trip

    The guides were helpful,...
    Emma_G, Aug 2022
    The guides were helpful, funny, and knew a lot of information. The caves were very beautiful. It was nice going early in the morning as it wasn’t super busy.
    Really fun tour, highly recommend!
    Isaac_J, Aug 2022
    Awesome tour, very safe and professional and lots of fun! We had a great time kayaking around several cool beaches/caves and one of our guides even helped us take this picture of the main site. Definitely recommend going in kayaks as in this tour vs big boats. All the guides were super friendly too. Thanks again!
    Slightly longer than listed
    larisa_d, Aug 2022
    The tour is good it says 2 hours I think it’s closer to 3 hours from start to finish and 2 hours on the water.
    Stunning views from the water - best tour!
    Jennifer_J, Aug 2022
    Incredible tour and the team at Secret Algarve is absolutely wonderful. They were fabulous in getting us oriented for kayaking, took us to three beautiful caves as well as many spots for photos. In a busy spot, they make this tour feel exceptionally personal. Would do it again in a heart beat.
    Very cool kayaking trip!
    Kim_F, Aug 2022
    Loved this trip. The guides were informative, supportive, and funny. The sites were amazing. Went into a cave that was pitch dark!!! Very cool. Good amount of time spend kayaking and swimming. Even though it is a highly traveled, touristy place that is full of boats and kayaks, it was a great time!
    Best Day Ever!

    Crazy crows were the o my real downside. A lot of waiting outside the caves for other groups. Our guides were great, though and we enjoyed ourselves anyway! Probably best to take the earliest trip of the day gor fewer waves and people.

    Awesome, memorable and better than ever expected.
    Negar_S, Jul 2022
    The absolute best. The crew, experience, scenery, water, cave - all of it. We would do this again and again. The crew operated smoothly and perfectly. They were great about ensuring those that were beginners were ok without boring the ones with experience. The cave itself was amazing. There were a few smaller ones including one that was very dark- pretty awesome. Highly recommend this and thank you to all the guys who helped! Adam especially kept everyone on track, laughing and made it very memorable. Thank you!!
    Unique Kayaking Adventure
    JosephC_F, Jul 2022
    Kayaking into some of the smaller caves was a very unique experience. Nothing else like it on the planet.
    Nice and beautiful kayak trip
    Lena_H, Jul 2022
    A great kajak trip along the coast. Experienced guide (Hugo) with stories about the area and the caves. Many other kayaks and boats in the water, so perhaps not the most tranquil nature experience.
    Rosalind_A, Jul 2022
    Excellent tour of the caves, amazing crew, highly recommend to get an early morning booking as the area gets very busy

    Thrillingly Amazing
    Ruben_S, Jul 2022
    Zach, Hugo and Sean made of all comfortable and thrilled for the experience we had with kayaking, which was our first time. Not to mention they were funny and very clear with instructions that we needed to take in for safety precautions. I would 100% recommend this for anyone and everyone
    Family Fun
    Donal_M, Jun 2022
    Super experience. We had 2 boys aged 9 and 11. Mike was great as were the whole team. Especially liked the kids first into and out of caves and beach. 2 good hours rowing and exploring caves and it’s very doable. So much fun. Our youngest was 9 and loved it. And to Adam (our Irish rep from Mayfield) Slan go fóill from the kids.
    An amazing experience, a must do!
    Avery_B, Jun 2022
    What a day!! Incredible. The tour was organized great. Our guides Dash, Paco and Sanchez worked as an amazing team. We went into caves that you'd never find on your own or be confident to enter. They were helpful and patient. Great value. I recommend going in the morning before the crowds come. Spent the afternoon on the beach.
    Although the weather...
    ralucaene5, Jun 2022
    Although the weather conditions weren’t ideal, the team made us feel very safe and changed the trip to ensure our safety. Adam was amazing, friendly, informative, checking in with us along the route and took us to amazing places. The cave was beautiful and we had enough time to enjoy the scenery and take pictures. Highly recommend the tour.
    A fantastic day kayaking
    FRANSISCO_F, Jun 2022
