We decided on the kayak tour because we really wanted to do something sporty. The booking via GetYourGuide went smoothly and easily. After booking, we drove to the meeting point at BorkYou. We were briefed and off we went. We kayaked over a shipwreck, through beautiful caves and past rock formations. The highlight was a narrow passage that we had to drive through and wait for the next wave to lead us through the narrow rock formation. We ended up docking at a nice secluded beach for a bite to eat and drink. After that we drove back. I would do this tour again at any time and recommend it to everyone. Thank you Inês and Rodrigo! Goodbye muesli

We were fortunate enough to have Rodrigo as our kayaking guy. He was informative and made our journey very Interesting. I would recommend this to her to others.

A really beautiful and well organised experience with very friendly and knowledgeable guides. A must if you are visiting the area.
