Wow! This was our favorite experience on our entire two week trip in Portugal. Our guide was very friendly and went above and beyond to make sure our group had a wonderful kayaking experience. We even got to see a few extra caves not normally visited as our group was small and it was off season for most tourists. He was highly focused on our safety while also ensuring we didn’t miss out on prime photo opportunities. Can’t recommend Secrete Algarve more!

BEST TOUR EVER!!!! The whole Secret Algarve crew is so welcoming, caring and fun!!!! They made sure everyone is kayaking safely and at the same time having fun and getting the most out of the experience. Listen to me and join this tour!! It's not that difficult to kayak as well as the waters are calm, anyone can do it in my opinion.

Excellent is the word. Although my original booking was cancelled due to high tide, I was rebooked for the day after and was communicated throughout. The tour started on time the next day. My family (with 2 kids - 12 and 8 yrs old) were given priority to go in first every caves. The guides helped everyone to get off attentively. They also helped with photos and explained things very well. We went in and out 3 caves altogether and they were fun. The sea was a bif rough at time but it was still safe. I felt a bit nauseous when not rowing (waiting for others to do their cave entering and exiting) but it went away once I was on the move again. Overall, I recommend it for everyone (with good heath). Also, do prepare extra clothes to change into after the tour as you will be wet from waist down most likely.
