YES !! It is ok if you cannot swim. Every person we take on the water is supplied a personal flotation device which helps to keep you afloat should you fall in the water. Our guides are trained at assisting you back onto your kayak so help is usually easily on hand. You are required to notify your guide prior to entering the water if you cannot swim.
At kayak Lagos Adventure we are not sending you flying over waterfalls in rafts or towing you behind boats at 40km/hr. We are very lucky that in Ponta da Piedade- Lagos the waters are very calm and clear. However as with any water-based and transportation activities there are inherent and assumed risks. We have a comprehensive and safe operational plan, a vehicle and driver policy and a navigation safety license to operate and we are always striving to minimize risks during our activities.
NO !! The Tours operate all year round. Customers in winter love our tours just the same as customers in summer !!
The minimum age for Kayak tours is 5 years old. Any person under 17 years old most be accompanied by a responsible adult. We advise families with young children to choose our first kayak tour of the day, instead of the others Tours.
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.
