    Great fun on SUP, from the very basics to cave exploration. Good equipment, nice introduction and pacing of the trip (there was enough time to get a feel of the board and try standing up a couple of times on calmer waters) and a very friendly instructor. Bruno is simply a cool guy and it was a pleasure to spend 2hrs with him. He's shown us some beautiful caves and gave us a bit of background of how they came to be and even told us a bit about the fossils there. He also took some nice pics of us with his gopro so we were able to focus on paddling and enjoying the sights. I highly recommend this trip, it's a great way to explore Benagil caves.

    Would encourage everyone to do this experience, I couldn’t recommend it enough. I’m so glad we booked in advance as on the day lots of people came up to our group asking if they could join in but it was fully booked as was the later time. Bruno (the tour guide) was amazing, it was our first time paddle boarding in the ocean and he was super helpful and explained everything perfectly. He told us some amazing facts about the area/coast line and it was just the best experience ever! Truly magical ✨

    We came from glasgow and loved this! It was our first time on SUPs and we would definitely try it again! 100% recommend, wonderful way to see Portugal and very informative. We had a fun group and excellent guide who was patient, knowledgable and funny! The 5pm slot was a nice time to go and we still got a lot of sun :)
