Centro Nautico Carveiro Reviews
1) There is no waiver form to sign. 2) There is no insurance certificate on display. 3) The “guide” doesn’t stay with the group, just paddles off ahead. No safety briefing about what to do if you do..... more »
Wow!! A second thought but so glad we actually made the effort. This boat trip is worth every euro of the 25 euros per person! The boat is fantastic, really comfortable with soft back seats. The trip.... more »
Misleading information. The kayak tour does not take you to Benagil Caves. Also, we were supposed to be able to stop at a beach and snorkel but our guide did not leave time for it. In the end you spend 50€ for a 2 hour kayak tour for a quick peak at some mediocre caves. Might as well do a normal boat tour for the same price and not bake in the sun.
THIS OUTFIT IS SERIOUSLY UNSAFE - DO NOT USE. Our two teenage children went on a rubber ring ride. They have done this many times before. They were given no safety brief or a stop signal. They were pulled very fast on rings which turned out to be unsafe and they couldn't make the boat stop or slow. When they returned it was obvious they were in serious discomfort and reduced to tears. The skin on their backs had been removed to the point of bleeding. When we remonstrated with the person who took the booking he simply ignored us and refused to do anything. The young driver was very apologetic and refunded us from his own money. However I attach no blame to him. He was young and had received no training. The lifeguard on the beach was very good tending the wounds and advised us to contact the police. He also informed us the booker actually owns the outfit. Having now read other reviews on Google and Tripadvisor I am very concerned that this company will seriously harm somebody. I strongly advise you to stay away. They should not be in business and are a discredit to Carvoeiro which is a lovely place.
