We had a great stand up paddling tour to the Benagil Cave and other caves and beaches along the way. Our guide, Bruno, was really nice and extremely experienced in teaching SUP on open water. He guided us very safely. He also told us interesting background information on the Benagil Cave and the other places. We highly recommend this tour and Bruno as a guide! It was a lot of fun and a fantastic experience!

Bruno rules! He took us to a few different caves and gave us some info on how they are formed. Last stop was the Benagil cave and he gave us plenty of time to check it out and he showed us some fossilized sand dollars, scallops and other sea life that are no longer in Portugese waters. Tip: Make sure to go to the Benagil Beach bar and meet Bruno at the last storage unit across from the bar. You can't miss it. I know there were some other guests that missed that info and were late for the tour.

The tour was a lot of fun!

The stand-up paddle tour was really great! Our guide was super nice and motivating and gave us very helpful tips! The grottoes and the Bengali cave was really a highlight and he really always tried to keep the group together and always waited for everyone and made sure that the boats didn't go too close to us. Right in the evening we received over 100 photos that captured this great experience! Our guide also took great care that all the couples were always together on the photos and the information on the edge about the beaches and rock information was also very interesting. In addition, we are now more experienced in SUP in waves - but is also suitable for beginners.
