      Better than expected. Worth the money.
      Superb trip. Two crew very attentive. Glorious weather to view the stunning Algarve coastline. Fully booked. On time. Better than expected. Saw dolphins in the bay close by and several pretty caves. Great size rib boat to get into the coves.

      Beautiful views of the Algarve coast line with rocky and sandy beaches. Don't forget to bring the jacket for the morning session.

      Caves via kayak- ten out of ten.
      Excellent way to see the caves via kayak- not too arduous- we’re old people and found it easy - hardest bit is getting into the kayak! Our host and kayak master, Ricardo (sorry for spelling🫢) was terrific - his intimate knowledge of the caves is immense and being high tide we had access to some tighter bits. Communication pre and during tour was fabulous- highly recommend. And the views are truly gorgeous. Thank you.

      Exceptional vistas up close
      I was surprised just how beautiful the views were on this tour. Just challenging enough but not hard at all for most people ….. I loved how we were launched and recovered without having to get wet! Nice crew and friendly tour guide and well deserved a tip which we gave willingly without too much pressure coming from the staff which I liked 👍

      A fun tour on a windy day
      We stayed in Lagos and taking a tour from the Lagos marina to see Benagil Caves was convenient instead of driving to the caves and taking a boat there. The 2 guides were excellent during the tour showing us Benagil Caves and other caves. Note: depending on the wind, be prepared to get soaked since the water splashes back up into the speedboat. I would bring a rain jacket next time.

      A Must in Lagos!
      This was definitely a must while visiting Lagos! Being able to see the caves and grottos so close and getting to kayak while doing so was wonderful. Our guide, Andre, was funny and informative and really made the trip so enjoyable. The jump off the boat into the crystal clear water at the end was fabulous as well!

      Days of Adventure…more like days of our lives!!!
      One thing we really enjoyed was the waiting area before our excursion. It was covered and it was VERY prompt!! Please get there 10-15 min early! You won’t regret it. We believe it was an adequate amount of time to participate in kayaking. The boat experience was fantastic and the music was great. After our kayaking, we even had time to jump off into the waters! If you’re an English speaker, have no fear! The guides were able to fluently pass between Portuguese and English when describing the rock monuments, and they kept us entertained! The views were stunning

      Best way to see the coastline in Lagos!
      Well organised and safe trip. Kayak loaded on boat for first part of trip then launched into water onboard the kayaks, great fun. Guide was very knowledgeable and concerned about safety of kids on trip and the tour was well paced. We even saw dolphins on the way back

      Choose kayaking over any boat tour!
      If you’re thinking about getting on The water in Lagos, choose this kayaking trip! Way more exciting than being on a boat. Ricardo was great and I always felt safe in the kayaks, even when it was choppy and there were some larger waves. Very cool to go into some caves and around all the amazing rock formations. Highly recommend!

      HIGHLIGHT OF OUR TRIP!!!
      We had the BEST time on our kayak tour! My friend and I booked the 2:45pm group kayak tour, and nobody else showed up (I think because it was supposed to rain). So we ended up getting an accidental private tour which was so fun! Ricardo was our guide and he was so sweet and funny. He taught us a lot about the caves and gave us some great recommendations for other things to do around Lagos. He was very experienced and made us feel safe the whole time. It didn’t end up raining but it was still a bit chilly and windy, but don’t let that deter you! The waters were still very calm and it was a really nice time. 10/10 would recommend this tour!!!

    A must so if you’re in Lagos, Portugal! We went on a small motor boat that holds up to 10 people, but I our turn we were only 4. As we went out to sea and bordered the fabulous cliffs that make up the shoreline we could see incredible rock formations and almost hidden beaches. Driver and tour guide Elio would expertly go into caves and grottos while explaining in detail everything that we saw. The tour lasted a little over an hour and we enjoyed every minute of it. Highly recommended.

    We visited Days of Adventure office on the Marina in Lagos on the Tuesday morning of our week near Lagos, only to be told that unfortunately they wouldn't be running any boat trips running from Tuesday to Thursday owing to the forecast of choppy Atlantic Ocean conditions. We noticed other companies were still selling trips but felt this was ill-advised and really trusted the staff at Days of Adventure. So we booked online for the Friday and turned up well in advance and they said the sea conditions were getting worse again and they needed confirmation from the top man re whether to go out or not (oh no!). But thankfully the trip went ahead and was worth the wait - amazing coastline, rock formations and caves. The extremely able (and informative) crew got us through some tight openings despite the swell of the ocean and made the 6 of us scream a bit by going quite fast at times!

    Ponta de Piedade is a fantastic piece of seascape and landscape; I would call it a must-see if you are passing through the area. Besides seeing it from above, you also want to see it from water level. There are several operators who provide boat tours from the Lagos dock; we went with Days of Adventure and had a great experience.

    It was about 15 minutes from the dock to the areas of interest. Our "skipper" tooks us close when he could but the surf conditions this day were not favorable for the sort of experience you see in some of the best pics. Still: very cool.

    The Days of Adventure operation was friendly and efficient. I'd use them again.

    Days of Adventure were a fantastic company to do a range of tours with. In particular when faced with scheduling difficulties their flexibility and customer service was excellent. Special thanks to Deogo and Roger who were brilliant. Definitely recommend this company.

    The boat was very small so we were able to maneuver in between the rocks. The boat drivers were very professional, clearly knew what they were doing, and made us all feel very safe despite the windy conditions. We got to see many beautiful and cool structures. The one thing I was disappointed with was that we did not get to see the very big, iconic cave that is shown on so many sites, but that didn't take away from all the neat stuff we got to see. Very good value for your money!

    Thank you so much for your nice review. Just to clearify that the iconic cave is located in another area of Algarve (35 kms away from Lagos). Days of Adventure also provides a tour to Benagil Cave, but on a bigger boat and another price range also.

    Really fun boat trip to see the grottos. The crew were friendly and knowledgeable, and we were really impressed with the precision handling of the boat through small spaces. The scenery was amazing and we enjoyed the fast ride back too! Highly recommended.

    excellent excursion. Boat captain was very proficient at maneuvering the boat in very tight corners. Gorgeous close up views of caves, grottos and cliffs. Captain was very knowledgable and happy to answer all questions. Definitely recommend!

    Must go
    Beautiful tour
    Perfect guide & driver
    They show you rocks from inside. They take boat inside
    Unforgettable experience & memories
    No negatives…everything positive

    If possible once should sit on front seat for better photography

    Visit only when waves are decent. Only visit when you are able to see from inside. If they tell you that water is rough & chances are less that boat can go inside then change the day & timing free of cost at counter.

    Nothing to marvel over or be amazed at. Once you see one of the rock formations, all the others look the same. I would recommend doing the tour of the Caves/Grottos BUT curb your expectations…You’re really only looking at rocks. Do yourself a favor and visit the trail atop the rocks. I believe it offers a better view of how beautiful the coastline is. Days of Adventure were professional, punctual, and knowledge about the tour.

    We were a group of six adults and we couldn’t recommend a better boat tour group. They were so nice and knew so much about Lagos. They have great recommendations if you want to know where to shop, eat and drink. You will not be disappointed if you go with this company.
