    It was awesome! It was my first experience in Kayaks and I loved it. I think that is the best kayk tour in Albufeira because It's about 3,5 hours trip and not only to Benagil but also some to some other beatiful caves while other tour offer only 2 hours duration of trip and only Benagil.

    The guides were great and so was the thing itself. The only small deduction for the fact that it was quite a large group and therefore you had to wait a little longer from time to time. A big plus was at the end of the kayak tour you could jump from the boat into cold, clear water, which was a great way to cool off!

    Really fun experience, and a wonderful way to spend the morning in Albufeira. LOVED the boat ride there and back- you can see the coast. The kayaking part felt chaotic because we were a big group, lots of other groups around, and you couldn’t hear the guides or see them sometimes. Speaking louder (shouting) and directions in advance (i.e., before leaving the boat) would have been very helpful (letting people know we are getting out to the see the caves first, then we are kayaking, we’ll enter some small spaces- go counterclockwise, tell people to use their paddles to gently push themselves away from the wall if needed, etc.)
