We enjoyed our trip. A lot was told. We even entered a cave. Miguel took his time and knew a lot about the places. There were a lot of waves, but everything is well explained.

Very nice to do this activity. You really need to have experience for supping. Kayaking is good for everyone.

Great tour from Albufeira Marina that goes to Benagil. Good explanations on how to use the kayak or the SUP
