      The best kayaking operators
      We looked for a while for a sea kayaking tour because I wanted to make sure we went with a company that paid attention to safety procedures. We went as a family with a 10 year old and 16 year old and we’re conscious that the sea had been quite choppy because of storms but we didn’t need to worry, Humberto and team were brilliant at explaining the process and making sure everyone was safe. The BIG bonus about this tour over the others is that you go out on a catamaran - so you don’t have to kayak right out from the coast - makes a big difference as it’s tiring! There are quite a lot of other kayakers and boats around so you have to be careful - I can imagine in the summer it would be a nightmare but it was managed well. The caves and coastline was gorgeous and our leader was brilliant at giving us info along the way. Would 100% recommend.

      Adventure of a lifetime!
      Unbelievable customer service, I couldn’t believe it! Humberto and his team are lovely and welcoming right from the marina. The explanation of instructions was clear and concise. Humberto took lovely photos of the group whilst we explored the caves and then had the foresight and experience to not exhaust everyone’s data by sending them on the boat… class act! The caves themselves were beautiful and Alfonse was a great guide who was personable and friendly, as well as very knowledgeable about the caves themselves. I would recommend this trip to anyone staying in Lagos or the surrounding areas!

      Fun adventure for couples!
      Excellent 2 hr kayak adventure visiting the shores of Lagos with its many cliffs and mini bays. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable pointing to all the small beaches and cliffs with anecdotes and history for each. The group was not too big with was important for me. Excellent for for adventurous beginners and more experienced kayakiste.

      Fantastic excursion
      Amazing trip. The 3 guys who took were really friendly, funny and informative about the various beaches and coves. It seems to be a smaller group than other kayak excursions which felt nice. Had time to relax afterwards and swim off the boat. Would definitely recommend.

      Great experience on the kayak tour
      We had a fantastic time on the kayak tour! The crew was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable, providing us with valuable information throughout the tour. We even had a great chat on the trip back to shore, during which they recommended several of their favorite local restaurants. It was simply awesome!

      Absolutely the highlight of our stay in Lagos. Everything was perfect from start to finish. Everyone was so friendly and very funny. The tour was great with good history and stories of all the interesting points along the way. Boat and kayaks in top shape! We really had a wonderful experience.

      Amazing trip along the shore and into the caves. Humberto and his crew were great. We are beginners at kayaking and felt safe the whole time. Would definitely recommend if you like an adventure and close up view of the coast. 5 stars

      The perfect kayak trip
      We highly recommend kayak trip with Lagos Adventure. Couldn't have asked for anything more. While showing us these amazing grottos and other views the guides told us interesting information and recommendations. After kayaking there was time to chill on the boat and swim, which was really nice. They also took a lot of great pictures which they sent afterwards. They did everything they could to make the trip perfect. On the day before the date we had booked they suggested to reschedule the trip because of weather forecast promising big waves. We really appreciated this, since we have previous experience of companies that do the trips regardless of the conditions so that you won't get the most out of it, e.g. are not able to enter the grottos at all. Lastly, they were most understanding when I had to cancel on the same morning before the trip due to sickness - they rescheduled our trip without any extra charges.

      Top tour in the Algarve
      Humberto, Richardo and Nuno make a great time and together, provided a really great experience. Highlight our out holiday!! They made sure everyone felt safe and were having great fun. I recommend adding this to your list of things to do when visiting the Algarve. Sending on photos of the day at no extra charge was the icing on the cake. Thanks guys for a great day out!

      Such an amazing time! I highly recommend to book with them if you are thinking about doing a kayak tour. They had such good energy and let the crazy people (like me) jump into the cold water after the kayaking part was over! Will do again when I am back in Lagos!

      Amazing kayaking
      We had an amazing time with Humberto and his crew! They were so much fun and very entertaining. Not only was the kayaking top tier, I would totally recommend the activity, we also got lots of local recommendations for things to see and eat. Humberto was taking photos the entire time, which were sent to us, a very nice touch as your phone would definitely get wet on the kayak. It was amazing to see the coast from the sea and get a totally different view.

    Really fun and beautiful kayak experience along the coastal cliffs. Caves, tunnels, rock formations made this kayak trip unique. Our guide included interesting history facts about the region. I highly recommend but try to go during the off season time as it will be getting crowded in the summer months.

    We had an excellent fun day with family, our kids are aged 6 and 9. The Lagos Adventure team made us feel very comfortable and safe during the trip. The initial greeting process was fun and enjoyable. The kayaking instructor explained the basics to us in a clear manner, especially bearing in mind that we have never done kayaking before! The ocean, beaches, caves and the general tour was an absolutely extreme and memorable experience that we will never forget. The trip finished with some free time where we could enjoy jumping in the ocean from the side of the boat. Another bonus was receiving a large amount of the photos from the trip as well, which adds value for money. Massive credit to every single member of the Lagos Adventure team, excellent job! We will definitely visit Lagos again and will choose Lagos Adventure once again!

    Great morning with humberto and Ricardo s. Their knowledge, safety briefing and customer aervice was second to none.
    Travelling first by boat from the harbour to the kayaking area, saved all our energy. We then boarded the kayaks on the boat and slid into the sea. Being guided and seeing the grottoes by kayak and the extensive knowledge of the multi lingual crew made the 2.5 hours pass very quickly.
    After seeing numerous beaches, grottoes and caves and being told which beaches were the best to visit. The dining room, lounge, cathedral , art gallery and garage caves, so named by the fishermen, were all great highlights
    Retuning to the boat the kayaks were pulled onboard anc we enjoyed a swim and a cool drink.
    Would highly recommend from the many available kayak providers.

    I proposed to my girlfriend during this tour, and these guys really went above and beyond what I had asked of them. Humberto was very obliging and I could tell he wanted to make sure the experience would be something special.

    The kayak tour itself was great; they tell you about all the beaches on the coast while the catamaran takes you to the kayaking site. Then Ricardo guides you through all the grottos and shares some cool history along the way.

    After the tour was over, everyone headed back to the catamaran, and Ricardo took me and my girlfriend to a small, secluded beach where I popped the question (she said yes!). Then we headed back to the catamaran where there was a bottle of champagne waiting for us which we shared with the whole group. They let us play our song on the boat and we jumped in the water for a quick, refreshing swim. At the end, they let us sit at the front of the boat and enjoy the beautiful view on the way back. They also took many pictures/videos of us throughout the whole tour. Overall, just a great group of guys that I really appreciate! Thank you again for an unforgettable experience.

    A really great way to see the caves. We met our very friendly guides at the marina in lagos, then got on a small boat that took us out to the caves. We then got in to the kayaks and were lead around the various caves and rock formation by a very knowledgeable guide. The larger boat, on which we left our belongings, was always close by. I felt very safe throughout. They don't supply waterproof bags, so if you want to take your phone or camera on the kayak I recommend bringing something with you, and having a way to tie it to you so it doesn't get lost in to the ocean! Once we got back in the boat we had some time to play on the water, go for a swim and jump off the boat, before heading back to lagos. A really fun trip and a great way to see the caves.

    Fantastic trip with a friendly team, guided by Ricardo (fluent english speaker) who never seems to get bored explaining with passion how beautiful his country is. Plenty of anedoctes, and some of the caves let you speechless by their beauty. The activity is safe and accessible for kids, I definitely recommend this "transport mode" instead of the traditional motor boat tour. And icing on the cake at the end with water jumps from the boat, away from the crowed beaches.

    There is a reason Adventure Lagos has such good reviews...they are awesome. Lovely people who have local knowledge and love the environment and the history of the coast. We had a great time kayaking and they made sure even the beginners knew how to use the kayak safely and competently. The guide took our 12 year old son and looked after him brilliantly, even lending his his hoodie to keep warm after he dived off the boat. Would 100% recommend and give 5 stars.

    We had a fabulous afternoon Kayaking with Lagos Adventure! We chose them based on reading the reviews and were not disappointed. From the initial booking Humberto was in contact via text and email to say he would check sea conditions and confirm the trip would go ahead. They do not take people out if the sea is rough. Although saying that we did only get just over 1 hour of Kayaking as when we turned the headland the sea had picked up and was a bit too rough to continue. Ricardo our guide was very generous in his knowledge and conversation. He clearly loves his job. We were delighted with the array of photos taken by Humberto, this is a real bonus of the trip!
    I definitely would do this trip again when i return to Lagos.

    Lots of fun. One of the best highlights of our trip to Portugal! We're very satisfied with our kayaking experience through Lagos Adventure and HIGHLY recommend them to anyone.

    The tour consisted of a short boat trip to the kayaking area, approximately 1.5 hrs of kayaking through multiple caves, arches, and tunnels, followed by boat trip home. Everyone was in a two-person kayak. The staff were very helpful and Ricardo was a great guide on the water.

    You can leave belongings (towel, sunscreen, shoes, etc.) on the boat, but I suggest bringing a waterproof smartphone bag on a lanyard so you can take pictures during the tour. You won't regret it!

    The crew and tour was amazing. They run small group tours - we were able to paddling into small grottos and tight squeezes to see some amazing rock features. Our guide, Rodrigo, spoke perfect English and took us to the popular sites and some very small spaces where large groups would not fit. Such a memorable trip!!
