Felt more like a chore

Can I just say the journey to the area where you kayak was great as well as the journey back but the kayak part was dreadful, take in mind I am 22 years old and completely fit and this was just a complete chore, we didn’t get to go through any of the caves apart from the main one (for 10mins) the kayak tour guide was very disorganised and the amount of beautiful beaches that we went passed but never once stopped at was just sad. Their was one point where we went past an amazing secluded beach and the guide told us that it’s only accessible by kayak and boat… then he changed his mind and wanted us to continue on the kayak’s stating that the beach is only accessible by boat when there was literally 3 people arriving on the beach by kayak lmao. It was just so repetitive and by the end of it I was just really disappointed.

Honestly, if you're interested in seeing Benagil, I recommend finding another tour. This specific tour seemed so unorganized, and very impersonal. I'll try to keep my story brief. My boyfriend and I booked this tour along with two of our friends. The night before we were messaged asking if we wanted a double kayak, a single kayak or a SUP. I messaged back nearly immediately asking a couple of questions our group had that we wanted answered in order to make our decision. The guide responded minutes later with the answers, but then informed us that double kayaks were no longer available. We selected single kayaks, given that was our only choice at this point if we wanted a kayak. We got to the meeting point the next day and got on the boat. There were 3 guides who said next to nothing until we got to the launch site. It seemed like they were not there for pleasantries, they made a couple of corny jokes and gave some short water safety instruction. My boyfriend is 6'2" and a bigger guy. He got in his kayak and the guides launched him off the back, he was in the water for less than 5 minutes before he tipped his kayak - essentially what happened was, the single kayak was MUCH too small for him, he was unable to maneuver the kayak comfortably, and accidentally tipped while he was trying to see if the seat moved back further. At this point, he took in so much sea water he asked to get back on the boat. The guide TOLD him that he would be much more comfortable in a double kayak, but that they were all taken. Less than 30 minutes after this happened, a double kayak holding 2 women came in, as one of them was tired and wanted to relax on the boat instead. The guides didn't even offer the woman who wanted to stay in the water a single kayak so that my boyfriend could have the double. So, we watched this woman struggle in waves over 1 meter trying to navigate by herself with a huge double kayak. Meanwhile my boyfriend sat on the boat for the entire time because there was no option that would have suited him to be able to come out into the water (the waves were too high for a SUP that day as well). It just seemed inconsiderate, disorganized and not very well planned. There is nothing in writing or the description of the tour stating to consider body size while deciding on a kayak. The sea conditions did not seem safe for us on the day we went, the guides seemed very concerned with getting us safely in and out of the caves, which was nice, but also added a layer of anxiety to the tour. It's a miniscule detail - but the details of the tour say you can 'relax with a drink on the boat.' There are no drinks provided, so bring your own. Overall, I feel like we wasted time and money. My boyfriend was really looking forward to seeing Benagil, and this tour did not accommodate him, AT ALL. I would say be picky while you're looking at tour offerings, and maybe do a tour, that launches directly from Benagil Beach. It will save time, sea sickness and ensure you're able to see the cave. I wish we had done that.

Great experience. Got to tour the Algarve coastline and cliffs. You end up going into 3-4 small coves/caves. About a 40 minute boat ride to Benagil. Make sure you are physically fit enough for a lot of kayaking or paddle boarding - it was a workout.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Hi Jennifer, Glad you enjoyed the tour :) Hopefully we will see you another time and then remember that the catamaran always follow you, so that if you get tired arms, you can get back to the boat at any time, no problem at all :) Enjoy the rest of your stay Best regards Team SeaAlgarve

Sarah_F

I really enjoyed our day kayaking! Safety demonstration was given, easy check in, beautiful sights. Biggest warning I would give is this is not so much a beginner activity. Water was really choppy on our day so it was A LOT of work and I don't think how far we were going was clearly communicated to all. We also were not told until check in that we could not purchase drinks on board (but there was a grocery store about 8 min walk away so we got waters). Starr were friendly but more matter of fact than on other tours i've been on. Overall, I'd go again!

Beautiful but stressful
Maria_J
, Aug 2021
We enjoyed the kayaking, but found the close proximity of so many people without masks very stressful. We had been led to believe that some distancing measures were in place and were surprised to find the boat so crowded. The kayaks were also very close together so there was not much opportunity to move for any length of time. We were put in a double kayak, which was a shame, as we would have preferred singles. I am guessing that if we had redeemed our ticket the day before we might have been able to get single kayaks. The places we stopped at were stunning and I would definitely visit again, but under different circumstances…

Fun trip, spectacular caves
Adrian_S
, May 2021
Decent size boat for number of passengers, with good, helpful crew. Took about 4o minutes to get to first cave, rear ramp made kayak launch easy. Lot easier than for several peole trying paddle boarding for first time. First cave was largest and great experience, but last was spectacular. We pulled up on beach inside large cave with hole in roof so could sunbathe, take photos. Understand crew will send photos they took in email, nice bonus. We spent about 2 hours in kayaks, before being hauled up ramp into boat. Then allotted time to swim before returning to marina.

Nos encantó la excursión. Fuimos en kayak y nos metieron por cuevas. El personal súper atento, todo muy bien explicado. Aún que nosotros éramos los únicos españoles intentaron explicarnos todo lo mejor posible. En el barco que nos desplazamos muy chulo y nuevo. Merece la pena. Para repetir.

Encadrement sécuritaire sans remarque.. Mais usine à touristes 😕
Alexandra_B

La balade le long des falaises est très agréable ! Et le personnel très sympa. Cependant la grotte de benagil est une usine à touristes.. C'est désagréable. Vous vous y retrouverez à plus de cinquante touristes dans compter des énormes bateaux qui se succèdent toutes les cinq minutes... La société propose les photos souvenirs... Elles sont de très mauvaises qualités.. faites vous propres souvenirs en prévoyant des tubes étanches pour téléphones N'espérez pas d'explication en français comme vendu... Misez sur l'anglais..
