Full description

Uncover the treasures of Benagil's coast on a stand-up paddle and kayak tour from Albufeira. Follow your guide to hidden caves and secluded beaches, and enjoy a drink on your boat ride back to the marina.

Start your Benagil tour and depart from Albufeira Marina on a specially-built boat. Enjoy the stunning views of the coastline as you sail in the boat for 40 minutes, before stopping and transferring to the Kayak or SUPs. Paddle into the caves and caverns and stop to take pictures of the rock formations. You can choose to paddleboard and embrace the freedom to move around. You can reposition yourself to wherever you feel comfortable, standing up or on your knees. Have a safe and rewarding experience regardless of age or skill level. Alternatively, you can ride in a single kayak or double kayak. Gain confidence even as a beginner with a water safety briefing from your guide before starting the tour. Take a dive in the ocean before returning to the marina by boat, where you can enjoy a cool drink on board.

    Really fun, we had two double kayaks and two paddleboards. Worked very well for different levels of confidence in the water in the group so everyone could get involved and enjoy it! We went in three different caves and paddled round all the beaches. The guides were lovely and funny and we felt very safe with them. Beautiful coast, best way to explore. Much better than getting a boat into the caves.

    I don't expect much when deciding to go with this experience. This is our first time kayaking and honestly, it's a hard job, you need to ensure that bring all your muscles with you. Even though the weather is not nice to us (full moon, high tide), all staffs were so nice and hard work allowing us to have the best experience and ensure safety. They were also patient and took some great memorable photos FREE for us. Within around 4 hours, we also met some great people in the group and made friends.

    Really great experience! Really enjoyed how we took a boat to the Benagil caves and kayaked there. We went through April so it was still a bit chilly, so I do recommend booking this at a warmer month, but we had an amazing time and couldn’t imagine a better way of experiencing the caves & the coast of the Algarve!
