Here are the steps we are taking to help protect the health and safety of our customers and staff during Covid-19.
Enjoy the outdoors with confidence!
This is a challenging time for all of us, but our first priority is the safety of our guests, staff, and community.
Lagos Adventure is certified by Turismo de Portugal with the Clean & Safe certificate and we reviewed safety procedures and internal hygiene protocols, ensuring the necessary conditions to avoid contagion risks and the guarantee of safe and rigorous procedures for the functioning of our Tours.
But it’s time to venture into the breathtaking scenery and to relive experiences that fill our souls. We miss being with you and together we discover the best that Lagos has to show us.
Ponta da Piedade is possibly one of the most beautiful natural scenery of the Algarve coast. Here the coast is formed by dense corroded cliffs, which have been carved in rocky pillars, natural tunnels, and hidden caves. These irregularly deformed sandstone cliffs stand in stark contrast to the peaceful turquoise and green deep waters, because of that the whole region is simply breathtaking.
To observe the cliffs from the sea, the visitors can take part in the organized excursions by Catamaran and later with our Double Kayaks, which navigate through the labyrinth of these unique formations in an ecologic way.
Situated prominently on the promontory of Ponta da Piedade is a traditional lighthouse, which has been watching international expeditions from the dangerous rocks since its construction and you can go with us on the Lagos Adventure Kayak tour, it’s an excellent excursion in Ponta da Piedade with 2 Hours and a half, from Marina de Lagos, exploring the cliffs, you can enjoy a magnificent experience.
It is with great respect and a dose of magic that we share the wonderful coast where we were born and lived. We will do this through a trip, initially by boat to save all our energy to the point where we descend with the kayaks. Why kayaks? The answer is simple! This means of transport, in addition to not polluting, also allows us a stunning view of the coast, almost as if we were part of it. As we explore, we return to the past by sharing stories, many of them funny.
Stop looking at the hands of the clock, disconnect and enjoy the moment is one of the rarest things we can do today. This trip is for that. Are you ready?

While greater levels of fitness generally help in all aspects of life, you do not need to be any kind of athlete to take part in our tours, kayaking on the Ponta da Piedade Coastline is generally a relaxing more leisure type activity.
Most Ponta da Piedade tours are on the water for about 1 or 1.15 hours. It is about as much as most people would like to be on the water. If you want to be on the water for a longer time, then consider hiring us with a private Kayak Tour.
We generally return to the Marina de Lagos approximately 2.5 hours following the scheduled tour time. Of course traffic and other factors can come into play.

10/10* Totally lived up to the hype! I can’t add much more than the previous praising comments - this experience worth every penny: awesome, funny, knowledgeable crew, super fun activity, even for beginners! Don’t miss this when you’re in Lagos! Thank you fellas once again, The Hungarians. PS: stay safe & we hope the skull won’t cry much in August!;)
Humberto and the crew did a wonderful job from start to finish. The meeting point was super easy. The amount of people on board was smaller than the larger boats. Plenty of room to sit and move around to get great views. The crew was super friendly, our guide in the water was Ricardo, and he gave great information throughout our kayak tour along the coast near Lagos. The best part though, there was plenty of time to kayak, swim, etc. and we didn’t have to paddle back to the harbor like other kayak operators.
We had a great experience on this tour! The guys were very nice and thoughtful, as we were the only English speaking people on our tour, they kindly explained all the sights and caves in both English and Portuguese. At the end we got a recommendation for lunch and it was perfect. Thank you very much for this amazing experience!
Super tour en kayak des grottes de la côte de Lagos. Activité très plaisante et pas fatigante (contrairement à ce que nous pensions), accessible à tous. Nous avons apprécié la bonne humeur de l’équipage (Humberto et les 2 Ricardo), les explications étaient claires et amusantes. Nous sommes passés par de magnifiques grottes accessibles parfois uniquement en kayak, et nous avons même eu la chance de voir des dauphins sur le retour en bateau. Je recommande !!! Merci à eux pour ce moment.
We had the best time on this experience! Everything was great and Humberto and Ricardo were amazing hosts. Hands down the easiest/ fluid kayak adventure we've had. Our group decided to watch dolphins instead of swimming which is what we would of chose anyways and that made the trip more magical! Also, Ricardo was the prefect guide to lead us into the caves and made us laugh during the whole trip. Book this experience now, don't hesitate! Obrigada!!
This was a super fun kayaking experience! The weather was super hot but kayaking on the water made a huge difference. Humberto’s team was awesome! We paddled though different caves and the scenery was just amazing. The wind and the current was pretty mild. Not very hard to kayak around. This is the highlight of my visit in Lagos!
Excelente experiencia. Tal y como se explica en el anuncio. El trato es amable y divertido. Los tres tripulantes han estado atentos y buscando siempre la broma para distender el ambiente. Se aprecia que hablen en inglés y en español (portuñol según ellos, pero lo hablan genial). Además, he ido solo y me han preparado un kayak para mí porque ya tenía experiencia. Un detalle la botella de agua al final en el momento del baño libre. ¡Una tarde superdivertida!
This tour was the biggest highlight of our travels so far. I can’t recommend doing this experience enough. The location where you kayak is enough to give five stars but the crew make it even better. They’re friendly and hilarious, they treated us like friends not tourists. Humberto was welcoming and funny, as was Riccardo number 1 & Riccardo number 2. The music on board made for the perfect vibe. Wish we could do this again!
I can wholeheartedly recommend this experience! The staff was super fun, friendly and knowledgeable. The guide was super fun as well and did not rush at all. We felt safe the whole time. In the end, we chilled for a while on the ocean so folks could jump into the water if they liked. It was an unforgettable experience. Thank you everyone!
This Kayak adventure is an amazing experience when you are in Lagos! It was such a beautiful trip with magical views on the best caves and grottes. The whole team was so funny and friendly, they explained everything perfectly so we felt very well and safe! I heartily recommend this tour to everyone who comes to Lagos.
Humberto and the two Ricardo's were fantastic hosts. The kayaking was a magical experience visiting caves and beaches really only accessible via kayak or boat. There were three of us and I was the only sole kayaker and Ricardo always made sure I was okay. Getting to swim around the boat at the end was a fantastic end to an utterly breathtaking experience. I would 100% recommend this activity. Thank you!!! ❤️
Had such a great time and the hosts were fantastic - personable and very knowledgeable of the area! We ended up seeing a lot more than I thought we would - almost the entire coastline! but with such ease and without tiring. I would definitely choose this kayaking experience to see the grottos over a boat tour!
The Lagos Adventure hosts were super warm and humorous. It was easy to find the meeting point and the process was seamless. We were out in the water and kayaking in no time. The guide was knowledgeable, interactive, and always watching out for our safety. I had a magical time and made some new friends.
My wife and had been on this same tour in 2019 and were happy to book with Humberto a second time. Humberto is a friendly guy and although he wants you to have a good experience his first concern is always your safety. There were three of a crew, Humberto and two Ricardos which made remembering names a doddle. During the short trip out to where the kayaking begins one of the Ricardos gave us lots of information about the sights and the local history. Once we were in our kayaks and paddling around the caves etc we had a great time and were constantly getting information from Ricardo about the caves and how they got their names. After returning to the boat we were able to swim in the crystal clear waters or lounge up front on the boat in the glorious sunshine. I have no hesitation in recommending this experience and will do it again if we return to Lagos in the future.
This is a fantastic guided kayak tour of the sea caves near Lagos. It was such a treat to be able to go inside and hear little stories about each. We had perfectly calm waters and a warm day, the conditions were great. We went at a leisurely pace, which we appreciated. All of the guides were friendly and helpful. Make sure you read the location directions carefully. We did not and got a bit lost. We highly recommend this tour!
Genial la experiencia!👌.. yo en mi caso estoy viajando sólo y todo fue muy bien. Ha sido una experiencia muy acogedora con vistas impresionantes!😍.. te llevan en barco hasta donde empieza el paseo en kayak y luego te llevan de vuelta en barco también, lo que se agradece! recomiendo esta experiencia 100%👌
