Thrillingly Amazing

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

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.

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 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.

Great crew provides fun Kayaking Day

We researched lots of kayaking tours before selecting Secret Algarve. We were glad we did. On our day, the seas were a bit rough, but the tour guides did a great job keeping us all together and managing the large numbers. They ensured safe and fun trip despite some tough conditions. The location is a bit challenging to find. You meet near the top of the hill - not at the beach. Also, even though they provide a dry bag, you really don't need to take anything with you on teh kayaking - leave it in your car or in their lockers. The trip itself is some work, but the sights are great and it is a very good experience. Total trip time, including orientation, launch, and returning up the hill was longer than expected. Believe our guides included Yugo and Evil (but apologize if we messed up the names)

Perfect but not for us
Sarah_G
, May 2022
The staff is very nice, friendly funny, helpful there nothing to say about that they were perfect! The experience however was bit too "mass tourism oriented" for our tastes. Groups are randomly made without taking kayaking experience or physical conditions into account. We had to wait for the rest of the group a lot, and wasted a lot of the tour time. So again for our own expectations not appropriate but for for families with kids for instance, or first timer with apprehension this is perfect

Everyone from back home told us we needed to visit Benagil and see the caves and I’m so happy we did. The organizers were funny, insightful and made sure we were we safe and in good hands from beginning to end. I would highly recommend booking with this group - you won’t regret it! We booked the 1030am tour I would recommend going in the morning for less chop and direct sun/heat.

Excellent Guides Despite Rough Seas
Wesley_H
, May 2022
Diogo and Adam were excellent guides. The seas ended up quite rough, so they surveyed every cave and passageway ahead of the group to check for safety and cautiously avoided taking the group through anywhere remotely dangerous. Diogo led the group and Adam was sag support. Another group had a kayak flip in a dark cave and they even rushed to help recover them, really great guides and a great experience overall. Passing through the elephant arches was one of the coolest moments, and obviously Benagil algar was the highlight of the trip. 10/10!
