Very fun and exciting day, staff were lovely. Be prepared for a tiring day as kayaking is hard work. We kayaked for 2.5 hours, both relativity fit and we were shattered! Got taken to a secret beach which was lovely! Totally recommend!

Good value for family of 5 and excellent staff. The staff took time to explain things and we never felt rushed. Seeing dolphins capped off an excellent adventure. We will be back next time we are in the Algarve.

Energetic and enthusiastic staff, very friendly and accommodating to everyone....great tour of some beautiful caves and secluded beaches. We never felt like we were in a hurry, and the ride back is a fun adventure in itself. Great job guys!

Having done that recently, I think it depends on how old your kid is. It can be scary / dangerous for kids younger than 7 years old, as you're not tied to the kayak. I wouldn't recommend it even if the organisers agree. But... More
