Really enjoyed the kayaking. It was only me and my girlfriend in the group which made it more personal but can imagine it only being more fun than it already was with a larger group of people. Our instructor was excellent and really helped us with instructions and gave us an insight to the surrounding beaches which we really enjoyed. We would definitely recommend to anyone staying in albufeira to do this, it was class.

A very friendly and relaxed experience. Tiago was in touch with us a just before our planned trip to say that the sea conditions were not good, and we arranged to move the date of our trip. On the revised date the sea was calmer and things went great. Lots of chatting from the guides as we paddled along the shore, stories of why the beaches and coves have the names they do, how expensive some of the hotels are.

When we eventually got there, we had a brief talk on safety and how to paddle. There were only 6 of us with 3 kayaks. We were given life jackets. The instructor lead the kayak in the water safely and made us feel comfortable. The instructor had a good knowledge of the historical sights. Was a great experience for me and my hubby. PS: if you are planning to do this bring your muscles with you
