Bruno was a great guide and gave us very helpful tips about the SUP, as well as details about the geologic formations / caves that we've visited. The fact that he takes pictures of us also provides us a great value for money, as we get a great "souvenir" of the experience.

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.
