Such a beautiful coastline great to see up close on a kayak. We went as a family of four two kids aged 12 and 15 and it was suitable for us all.

A fantastic experience in a small group and attentive as well as experienced guide. The highlight was the famous Benagil cave with plenty of time to take pictures inside the cave. Tour did not take too long. We would recommend this strongly.

1. Excellent and informative tour guide who took us safely to caves which we would not have been if we were on our own. 2. plenty time in all the beaches/caves to explore/swim 3. not a crowded tour which is another thing I personally liked. Noticed another tour operator with a fleet of kayakers and paddleboarders and was very glad I was not in the crowd!

I really enjoyed our tour. I think it is one of the best ways to explore Benagil caves. Our instructor was very professional and friendly. I am glad that I have chosen kayak instead of boat and it was good to do it in organised way with a guide, because I would be afraid to enter into some caves on my own. Highly recommended experience.

We had Nelson as our guide and he was great. He checked everyone's level of experience at the beginning and gave clear instructions. He was friendly, good fun, patient and calm at all times. The caves and sea are beautiful and it was easy to tell how much local knowledge he had. When our group were on our way back, some people (not from our group) had got into difficulty in the water. Nelson helped them get back into their kayaks again. They had clearly got a fright but Nelson handled it all very calmly. It affirmed to us the importance of seeing these caves with local guides who know where is safe. This tour company are true to their word that it's a small group. It felt very safety conscious.
