My sister and I went on the Kayak trip through the caves in the grotto and had an INCREDIBLE time!! The water was quite rough so we weren't able to do everything but we were so thrilled with what we were able to do. We went on Christmas Eve and were the only people on the tour so we had... More

Did the kayaking your and I would have to say it was the highlight of my trip. The tour guide took us through amazing caves and explained the history of the area. I will never forget the 2:30hrs, well worth it and it will be a shame of you leave Lagos without the kayak tour.

Booked the water taxi a few days before on the seafront in Alvor to travel to Lagos. price was very reasonable so decided to add on the Tour of the Grottos and was I glad I did. The crossing from Alvor to Lagos is beatiful and are guide was very informative. The Grottos at Lagos are amazing and well worth... More

Hi Shaz Thank you for your kind revue. I completely agree with you that the water taxi to and from Lagos and Alvor is a Adventure in itself. if you add on as you did the grotto trip for a further 10€ you are almost guaranteed a wonderful double experience at a very reasonable price We employ staff that hopefully...

Been on this trip loads of times with the older boat and it was fab. Since the new boat arrived the price for us pensioners has increased drastically, the toilets are virtually impossible for an older person to access, and they took the boat out knowing the swell on the sea was quite bad. Will think more than twice about... More

We toured the grottos with this company in a motor boat that held about 15 people. It took about 15 min to clear twin and get to the alabaster coast and see private stunning beaches . It took us in caves and thru secret passages explaining in English the names of the rocks and some history of the area. You... More

Too the smaller boat, I think 12 people or less. The grottos in Lagos should not be missed. The smaller boats can go in the grottos so probably a better choice. Think our driver cut down the one hour tour to about 45 minutes. Seemed to be trying to impress some of the guests by jumping waves of other boats... More

We enjoyed our trip with days of adventure. Watching dolphins in their natural environment is for us much better than going into this bloody giant aquarium... Special thanks to Irene for her kindness.
