Overall rating

4.6 / 5

based on 101 reviews

When we eventually got there, we had a brief talk on safety and how to paddle. There were only 6 of us with 3 kayaks. We were given life jackets. The instructor lead the kayak in the water safely and made us feel comfortable. The instructor had a good knowledge of the historical sights. Was a great experience for me and my hubby. PS: if you are planning to do this bring your muscles with you

Very sporty, we will clearly not do it every day but very fun! The landscapes are magnificent. Super friendly and attentive staff. Just don't forget the jacket on the boat

Took this tour with my wife and it was our first kayaking tour ever. I would have to say we had an amazing time! The tour was a lot of fun and would recommend it to anyone!

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
