From Albufeira: Kayak & Sup Guided Tour To The Benagil Caves

Join us on this amazing 4 hours tour in the beautiful Algarve coastline. We will depart from Albufeira on a catamaran with all kayaks and boards, and when we get nearer the Benagil cave, we'll start the kayak and SUP tour. No need to have experience, our guides will be around all times making sure everyone has fun!

We set off from Albufeira Marina and we’ll leave on a catamaran, where you can enjoy the stunning views of the coastline and relax on board, for the first 30 minutes of the tour. Then you’ll get into the kayaks or onto the paddle boards and start exploring, starting at a slow pace, while you get the hang of it . The guides will also give a water safety briefing before starting the tour. Please indicate your preference in the checkout, if you want to practice kayak or SUP (it is subject to availability).

You’ll have the opportunity of paddling alongside magnificent cliffs, exploring the unspoiled Algarvian Coastline, paddle into caves & the hidden caverns, as long as the weather permits. We will visit one of the most famous attractions in the Algarve, the Benagil cave! Did you know that the only way to get there is by kayak, SUP or similiar? Stop to take pictures of the amazing rock formations, secluded beaches, caves and be one with nature.

No experience is necessary! Beginners are welcome on all our tours. Regardless of age or skill level you will find that our tour offers enough flexibility to make your experience with us safe and rewarding. We will show you proper sea kayaking and stand-up-paddle techniques and water safety before starting the tour. Our expert guides will be with you throughout the adventure to give you pointers and help improve your skills.

Before returning, take a dip in the ocean to cool off, before getting back aboard the boat to return to the marina. Chill out and relax to nice music and enjoy a cool drink on board.

Please notice that there are 10 single kayaks (for one person), 10 tandem kayaks (for two people) and 10 stand-up paddle boards. After the booking, please let us know as soon as possible whether your preference is single kayak, tandem kayak or SUP board.

I have never done kayaking or SUP, is this activity difficult?
Not at all! You will see that the sea in the Algarve is usually calm and perfect to practice kayak and SUP. Our guides will be there to teach you techniques and be sure you won't be the only beginner!
Will we go inside the Benagil cave?
It will depend on the sea conditions at the day of the tour. If it is safe, the crew will guide the group inside there with the kayaks and stand-up-paddle boards. If the guides think the waves are too strong and people might get hurt, we will not risk it. Bigger boats can't stop inside the cave, so this is one of the only ways to really get inside the cave.
What should I take with me?
We recommend you to bring your towel, sunscreen, cap or hat and warmer/drier clothing for afterwards.
I want to take pictures inside the Benagil cave and during the tour. Is it safe to take my phone and camera?
During these activities your phones and cameras may get wet, so it isn't very safe. But no worries, our crew will take amazing pictures of you and your group, so all you need to do is ask and we'll send the photos to your email.
How many kayaks and SUP boards are there?
There are 10 individual kayaks, 10 tandem kayaks (for two people) and 10 stand-up paddle boards. After booking, please let us know as soon as possible if your preference is individual kayak, tandem kayak or SUP board.
How many people go on the tour?
The maximum capacity of this tour is 40 people. The catamaran is big enough to take everybody, plus the crew and all the equipment comfortably.
Can I buy food or drinks on board?
Yes, we have a bar on the catamaran with food and drinks available for purchase.

  1. Brilliant trip, well worth the money!

    Brilliant trip, well worth the money! The staff are all very friendly and helpful. The tour was great, they took us through all the caves and ensured everyone was well looked after, they also took loads of photos of all. Definitely recommend to anyone!

  2. Highlight of our trip!

    This is a must do in Algarve coast of Portugal! It was the highlight of our trip and my boys and I had a great time!! Hugo was accommodating and took us to the most beautiful spots of the Benagil area. Breath taking views and a fun day of kayaking. Thank you for a great time!!!

  3. Great kayaking and cave tour

    Our experience with SeaAlgarve was great. Even though we thought it was a bit pricy at first, it’s worth it. The trip to the caves takes 45 min, and once there you can either kayak or paddle board. The guide leads the way, and the caves and secret beaches are really beautiful. The crew members were chill and professional.

  4. Superbe !

    C’etait Parfait ! Une équipe superbe, gentille et à l’ecoute ! Prix qui est très correct vis à vis de la prestation.
    Je conseille fortement, vous ne serez pas déçu !

  5. Forma perfecta de ver toda la costa de Albufeira

    Es una excursión perfecta para ver toda la costa desde Albufeira a Benagil, ya que es de las pocas empresas que te permiten adentrarte en las cuevas por tu cuenta con tablas de SUP y piraguas, por lo que se te hace más amena. Además no es pesada la excursión, ya que sólo estas remando una hora, y poco a poco. El barco nos va siguiendo en la ruta.
    Lo único que yo añadiría a esta excursión es un lunch, bocadillos o barbacoa a bordo o en una de las playas desiertas que vimos para que sea ya perfecta.
    100% recomendable

  6. Boat trip and kayak

    Fantastic, €42 what a bargin, 45 minute boat trip to location , then a 2 hour kayak along the cliffs, great caves , good guiding and exercise ! . Boat then picked us up for return to port . All the staff were superb with drinks and snacks on journey back, very reasonably priced. Photos taken by the guides throughout the trip and free , yes free , to download when sent to your email address afterwards.

  7. Excellent

    Vraiment magnifique! Équipage adorable, superbe excursion dans les grottes, je recommande fortement.
    PS: ne pas oublier un petit pull pour la traversée en bâteau

  8. Fantástico

    Un trato inmejorable de unas personas muy profesionales y amables. Seguir así!! Muito Obrigado!!!

  9. Super

    Très bien. De jolies paysages. Animateur très sympathiques surtout Alex qui maitrise parfaitement le français. Par contre 2h de kayak c’est crevant ein lol

  10. Super

    Mooie boottrip langs de kust. Goede kajaks en zeer aardige bemanning. De Benagil grot was wel een beetje erg druk en ook vol met uitlaatgassen van de motorboten. Zou eigenlijk verboden moeten worden. Kajaks en sups zijn veel milieuvriendelijker. Ook voor alle (broedende) vogels die er zitten. En zelf varen is ook veel leuker. Supertrip met SeaAlgarve. Echt een aanrader!

  11. Great experience!

    Wauw, that was a great experience! I am very positive regarding the kayak tour we took from Albufeira with experitours. Low price, good tourguides, and great views!! I would recommend it.

  12. Nice experience

    Different and funny way to get to know the algarve sea side. Whit the boat trip you can discover amazing beachs and with the kayak you could get closed to the caves. A fantastic way to spend the morning!

  13. All perfect

    Everyone was on time, and everything went smooth. Staff was helpful and fun to be around! Great experience overall. Will definitely do it again

  14. Great Experience

    We went along the coast and saw so many caves and were able to go into them and got a lot of pictures, it was great kayaking and the staff were very helpful. Worth the price for sure

  15. Mixed feelings

    We expected a catamaran (as advertised on your website) but all we got was a boat…..

    We were in a kayak for a long time and visited many caves except the only important one (Benagil)…..

    The boat went into the Benagil cave for a very short time and due to the unclear announcement many passengers missed that moment and didn’t get to take any pictures…..

  16. Perfect

    Everything perfect. We will back. I recommend everyone

  17. Fantastic

    Fantastic trip, worth every cent! Such brilliant views and really well organised, loved the kayaking! Best thing we did on our holiday!
