    Really enjoyed this experience. Our guide Adam was personable and engaging. We had originally wanted to book the 10:30 trip but it sold out quick. We opted for 08:30 which actually turned out to be perfect…it is a very very very popular area with other kayaking providers (and SUP) so when we were returning at approx 11:00 the sea was packed with people setting off to do the journey we had just done! Going early meant we avoided the crowds, had easy access to caves and Benagil. We were provided dry bags for items which was handy. Had 3 in our party which was catered for without issue. Would recommend.

    This was one of the best experiences during our trip. The guides were funny, and helpful and knew how to help with the kayakers that did not have a ton of experience and were beginners. They made sure we got a bit of adventure while trying to be as safe as possible. Our kayak capsized at one point and they were absolute professionals ensuring we were okay when they saw that my sister was terrified of having fallen in.

    Our kayak trip with Secret Algarve to the Benagil Caves (Algars) was a top highlight of our trip to Portugal! Secret Algarve is a well run operation and our guides Hugo and Pedro were top notch, very attentive and experienced. They also injected some humor into their explanations! Only suggestion would be to add some signage to their check-in location which is halfway up the hill from the beach. They provide lockers so you can store your belongings and dry bags to use on the kayaks!
