A very special experience. Away from the tourist boats, Sam and Rui made us a very nice and intimate tour. We visited the entire coast, we saw all kinds of formations, we entered caves and natural arches, etc. Something we will remember all our lives.

We really enjoyed ourselves. From 14 years old to 81 years old. A stable boat with both shade and sun. Nice music playing. Lovely stop in a cove with crystal clear waters and fun stuff to do. Kind, attentive staff. A must!

Amazing! Taking the kayak tour allows you to get to know the area in a different way, unusual places and at all times guided and explaining the history of each one of them. Great service and staff!

Great experience, well worth the money. The coast is beautiful, and the guide (Mr. Pedro) was very informative and helpful.

Top activity and super friendly staff, I recommend to enjoy kayaking for 1h15-30 and return by boat
