Full description
After becoming totally equipped with your board, life jacket, and paddle, you will take part in a brief lesson so that everybody is able to paddle properly. Once the lesson is over, you will jump into the water with your guides to begin the tour. The first moments in the water will be dedicated to getting used to standing up on the board whilst paddling. Once everybody's comfortable the attention can shift to the amazing landscapes around the cliffs. Throughout the tour you can have a closer look at the cliffs by paddling close to them, and will also pass through a few caves. Throughout the tour you will stop inside the world famous "Algar of Benagil", and after exploring the entire area you will return to the starting point at Benagil Beach.

This was a great experience. The caves are beautiful. Our instructor / guide was fantastic. It was a shame there was a lot of other traffic on the water eg motor boats which made it hard to stand up on the boards due to the choppy water caused by them.

Fantastic experience to see the caves on the supp. We had no experience and were well guided by our 2 guides from supp albufeira. It's just a pity that it wasn't normally busy… if you want to visit the caves in peace, book a private tour around 07.00!
