Would recommend this instead of taking the boat if you like a little more fun and adventure going out to the caldera. It’s not a difficult kayaking experience but a much better way to enjoy the island. There are a lot of fish in the lagoon in the middle so snorkeling was glam added bonus. The 2 instructors were excellent and guided us around the caldera first and even let us go into a small cave Inlet on the outer section before we spent an hour in the middle lagoon area. Was definitely worth it.

Magnificent kayak ride to the beautiful island of Vila Franca with Joao and his two collaborators, all very professional and nice! The kayaks are beautiful, equipped with a waterproof bag to keep your things safe, and a bag with masks and snorkels for snorkeling. I can only recommend this beautiful excursion!

After a brief introduction, we were assigned the kayaks, and if required, each kayak also received a waterproof bag. First we circled the island, then we were able to explore the crater and the island on our own for about an hour, after which we went back to the port. For us it was a completely successful trip, the two guides were great and we had a lot of fun. Absolutely recommendable!
