      Great Kayaking experience
      Xplore Benagil organized a very good kayaking trip for us to the secret caves. We had 3 guides on the trip who constantly advised and instructed us as we kayaked with the ocean waves. Lovely experience seeing the various rock formations around Benagil and entering the secret entrance to one of the caves inside which it was completely dark! An amazing experience indeed. Take a waterproof cover for your phone as it is bound to get wet.

      Nuno was the best tour guide, he carefully explained all the specific details for the kayaking and guided us with laughter. Would definitely recommend.

      Best region of the Algarve to visit by kayak, much more beautiful than the region of Lagos, Benagil is the biggest natural attraction of the Algarve coast, and I advise you to book with the company xplore benagil where they took us to visit the cave of benagil known as the algar of benagil and we had an extra during the tour we saw dolphins and saw the natural arches of the beach of Marinha one of the most beautiful beaches of Europe, I always advise you to take a guide

    We went on the 11am tour so was busy - on hindsight maybe the 9am one would be quieter but our guides could not have done any better considering how busy it was to keep us all safe. The best bits are when you get to go further along the coast where it is quieter. We had 2 young kids with us and they loved it. Thank you for a great experience!

    So glad we booked this tour and experienced the Algar of Benagil up close. Alex and Nuno were incredibly attentive to everyone in our group and made us feel very safe. Even accommodated our group of 5 with a 3-person kayak.

    I will recommend these guys to everyone I know visiting the Algarve region. Very fun guides who love their work and keep safety a priority. We did 7am slot and were able to disembark, explore and swim while it gets too crowded for that on later tours. Perfect start to the day!

    Could not recommend these guys enough. Our guide was amazing. As a family of four, we enjoyed the whole experience.
    We done the 9am tour which I would highly recommend over later tours as we noticed such a difference on our way back in with the crowds.

    We had a really wonderful time on our kayaking trip! The guides made us feel comfortable and safe while ensuring that we enjoyed the entire experience. Definitely would recommend to anyone.
    We did have a little trouble initially locating the beach where we started the trip so I do recommend that you leave plenty of time to locate the beach and make sure you follow the path marked with flags to ensure you reach the location.

    Fantastic tour to see the coastline, including Benagil Cave, but so much more. Nice to start the day sea kayaking too! We went at 9am and I would not go any later as there are a lot of boats and other kayak tours that crowd the area after 10am. Our guide Brenda was most excellent - her energy, care for each guest, and knowledge. Really happy we did this and would HIGHLY recommend to others.

    We booked this through AirBnB 5 days in advance. The day before the experience they cancelled it because they were "fully booked". This left us scrambling to find a replacement provider at the last moment.

    They didn't even cancel it straight away so we were still receiving messages about it. I had to message them in the booking group chat to get them to give us our refund.

    This has obviously left us with a bad impression of how they manage their bookings. I would caution about making a reservation through AirBnB as they don't prioritize ones made through that platform.

    I don't think it was with us, inform yourself before speaking wrongly because what you say is pure ignorance. Overbooking happens is in the most requested region of the Algarve and the systems sometimes fail to close the seats when sold out. About cancellations again, please inform yourself because there are no instant cancellations, everything has to go through a process, if you are nervous during your vacation imagine on a daily basis, away with people like you. An aside, if the client can cancel 24 hours in advance then the operator also has the right to cancel in any situation the rules are the same for both.

    Highly recommend this tour! The guides were kind and helpful, and the group sizes were reasonable. (I think there were about 10-12 people/5-6 kayaks in our 7am tour). It's also 100000% worth waking up to join the earliest tour possible. There were no other groups on the beach when we started, and we had the Benagil Cave completely to ourselves. It was magical. We kayaked through a number of other caves as well, and it was the highlight of my trip to Portugal. (Also, for anyone who may deal with seasickness, the water is calmer in the mornings before boats start operating.) The beach was packed when we returned at 9 am, and I noticed a million more kayaks in the water as I hiked the coastline later that morning. So definitely worth the 7 am trip!!

    This trip was a fantastic way to see the Benagil cave and many other caves and sights along the Algarve coastline! The meeting point was easy to find. After checking in and getting life jackets and dry bags, we walked down the Short Hill to the beach where we received our kayaks and instructions on how to paddle. shortly after that, we were in the water and on our way to the Benagil cave. it is a fantastic view inside the cave, so I totally recommend taking a kayak instead of a boat. We were afforded 30 minutes to relax, take pictures, and enjoy the cave. Our guide Nunu, was very professional and friendly He was informative as well, telling us about the cave, it's history, and more. We then kayaked down the coast, exploring other caves including the Pirate cave (we were kayaking at low tide). We made our way down to Marinha beach, where we had some time to kayak and explore on our own before heading back to where we started. I highly recommend going earlier because there are less kayaks and boats on the water, the earlier you go.

    All in all, a great experience and guide. Highly recommended!

    Actually, the tour we had booked was cancelled due to excessively high waves. They offered us a different booking the next day, but same thing happened. I’m 100% for safety and congratulate them on their initiative.
    The company were excellent communicators and refunded our fees the very day of cancellation
