I wanted to get a tour of the beautiful caves on Stand Up Paddling and so I booked a session with the Albufeira Surf & SUP team. When I arrived, everyone was extremely friendly. My instructor João was awesome. I got a fantastic lesson on the basics and there we went. He showed me hope to properly do SUP including some more advanced moves. Then he took me to see a few incredible caves including a wonderful secret beach. Couldn’t ask for a better instructor.

I liked to much that I signed up for the Coasteering tour (cliff jumping) the next day. Sebastião was my guide and he was truly awesome. He first showed me all the ways to jump safely. Then we went for a many awesome jumps along the Algarve coastline which included some swimming and rick climbing. Some jumps will test you but Sebastião always made me feel safe.

Just great people who will help you live fantastic experiences.

Went with my 3 children aged 11-15. First time surfers. Brilliant absolutely brilliant. Met with the instructors and got kitted out with wetsuits. Got our surf boards and headed down to the beach.
The instructors were so friendly and have very good english. Taught is the basics. In the water the instructors kept an eye an us and took time with everyone to help them and give pointers. We all were able to stand at end.

Would definitely go again and would highly recommend to anyone else thinking of doing it.

We went Paddle boarding with Diogo and had the best experience. He was very supportive and informative and encouraged us all to do the best we could, he took us around the rock formations and caves where it was safe to do so - we went in November so not all of the water levels were safe where you would usually go in summer - and made sure we had a fantastic experience. We all agreed we would love to do it again with SUP as it's great value for money as well. I'm very happy I was able to experience this with such an amazing guide - THANK YOU!!

The say I booked was cancelled but since i travelled from Lagos, they took me out anyway. It was just me with Sebastian, and two volunteers. They were patient, there is some climbing, abd pleasant company.
I had a great experience and woukd highly recommended the coasteering.

The jumps are not trivial, but what views.

- My husband and I chose the SUP activity and what a fantastic experience!! We had never tried standup paddle boarding but with some instruction we were quickly up and on our way. The coaches/instructors were fun, upbeat, encouraging and made every person, at every age level comfortable. No one was rushed and everyone caught on. It was truly impressive!
- Excellent value @ €40 per person for the experience. (NOTE: cash only!! )
- Start to finish 2 hours. Perfect amount of time for the adventure.
- The experience was a well executed process. This is a seamless operation and the instructors are safe and cautious to watch everyone. They take photos and videos throughout the trip. (We are eager to receive them via email to relive the incredible memories).
- Round trip transfer option available for €5 euro. A retro vw van will pick you up at your hotel (along with additional pick ups as well). While this is convenient, it is hot and the diesel smell is overwhelming. Not a deal breaker, just a mention. (Side note: Loved the Bob Marley music on the transfer ride). The transfer is really a great option but we would probably take a taxi next time, for added comfort.
- After a 5-10 min check in process and a 10 min instruction, you are off and on your way!
- There is a lot of upper body strength needed. Balance, of course, as well as times when you are kneeling on the board. My husband and I are both fit and we were pretty tired at the end. Anyway, take this all into consideration should you have any injuries or may not be in the best of shape.
- Also, check to see that the sea is calm. Any chop or too much wind would make the experience very very challenging.
- The guides take you around the coastline and through a few caves. STUNNING!! There is no other way to experience the cliffs and caves.
- There is an opportunity for a swim break as well as a cliff jump for those brave enough. The jump is HIGH! Maybe 40ft. While my husband (43 yrs old) and I (38 years old) went for it, our tailbones have been sore since and we have a little bruising on our rears. Honestly it's a pretty dangerous jump...And while exciting & exhilarating, I wouldn't do it again. We checked cliff jumping off our bucket list but we are getting too old for extreme stunts. We will stick to the oddly boards here forth. Ha!

*note: do not wear sunglasses out on the water. The likelihood of falling in the water is pretty good which means you would lose your sunglasses. This happened to my husband. It was the only negative.

Overall 5 stars. Highly recommend this!!!!!!
YOU WONT REGRET IT!!!

I had been looking all over for something like this, and I'm glad I found it! I booked the coasteering activity which consists of walking along the cliffs & shoreline, cliff jumping, climbing up cliff faces and swimming through caves in the sea.

Firstly I was picked up in a cute yellow minivan at about quarter to 10. I was brought over and met the guys who were super friendly and welcoming. They are very fluent in english as well which was really impressive!

We got all geared up with a helmet, wetsuit, pair of bright red shorts! Swim shoes and a life jacket, ensuring our safety for the activites ahead.

We then walked along the shoreline and up the cliffs, and had a chance to look at some incredible views!
We then got to the "warm up" cliff. Our instructor, Mauro, got us to do some warm up exercises so our bodies were prepared for the jump.
Chico was on a speedboat waiting for us at the bottom, ready to take some great pics!
Not gonna lie I did get very scared and I was contemplating what I was doing with my life at that point haha! But Mauro and the other people I was with, Jorge and Summer, could not have been anymore encouraging! They were a great support and very patient with me.
Finally I jumped and it was amazing!! Definitely a refreshing dip on a hot day!
But we weren't done yet...
We swam through caves to the next cliff that was higher, then swam to and climbed a cliff twice as high, then one higher than that one, then one higher than that one! It was intense!!
We then did a few low jumped ones like our first one.

The best advice I could give you is don't think - just do it! It's fun, safe & you're all geared up!

By the time we were done I was ready to collapse! It was so exhilerating but tiring! My muscles were really feeling it the next day.

We managed to get some incredible pics thanks to Chico on the speedboat!

We walked back to the shack to take off our gear and then the guys invited us for lunch to a local fish restaurant which was nice of them. My family ditched me for a pirate boat ship day so I thought I might as well! So we had a bit of a laugh and got to know eachother a bit more and we ate some great food, and the meal was only 8 euros which was great for the quality of the food and service!

I decided to stay at the beach for a bit longer to chill with everyone and sunbathe on the gorgeous beach. We then got to paddleboard! Paddleboarding was GREAT fun!! Did I fall off? Yes about 5 times. Was it worth it? Yes!! I managed to actually stand up woohoo! The waves weren't too bad either.

I then sunbathed for a little bit and then got took home at 5.
It was a wonderful fun filled day and I would do it over again in a heartbeat.

I'll definitely be recommending this company to any family & friends who are going to portugal, as the activities are great for the price and the three men, Mauro, Chico & Jaoa can't be any nicer or friendly. I will definitely be going back next time I'm in portugal and if you're reading this wondering whether or not you should book with them DO IT!! You will NOT be disappointed!

When on holiday, I love to book as many experiences like these as I can, as it makes it a fun filled, adventurous and unforgettable holiday.
I was beyond impressed with how the day went and would recommend it to anyone looking for a thrill seeking adventure - or even just wanna try something new.

I hope this review helped to make up your mind :)

A real disappointment.

Firstly, there were too many people in our group. We then went to join another large group who were already in the water which meant the overall experience was way too crowded - everyone constantly surfing into each other. Instructors were rude and not especially helpful - felt like none of the staff really wanted to be there. Only good point was the equipment - the wetsuits mostly seemed quite new.

The biggest disappointment was the lack of waves! At 35 euros a person this felt like a real waste - don’t bother!

Thank you for your feedback that will help us improve always but here what really happened, I did the briefing in the beginning explaing the wave and crowd conditions, and yes, sometimes there are small waves and too much people in the water, it's summer!!!! there is nothing we can do about it. I always ask if you really want to do it??? You don't have to do the lesson if you don't like the conditions!!! Once you go out we do our best to make a wonderful surf experience with the conditions we have. Next time choose another day my friend, we have many days with big waves and less people 🤙 Have a great day

We were in albufeira for a long weekend and decided to give paddle boarding a go. We rang the number and spoke to a very nice guy called Mauro.
We arrived the next morning, it was a gorgeous day and the sea was really calm.
Price was €40 each for a 2 hr tour of the cliffs and caves.
We went through warm ups and the basics then went out to sea.
It was so much fun and the sights were amazing.
Mauro took photos on his phone while paddle boarding with us (very brave!) which we were able to see/download from his Facebook later on that day.
The best part was his mate flew a drone from the cliffs and filmed us.
The dvd was €15 and had about 70 photos as well as the video.
The video was incredible, when you do it, you'll understand!

This was well worth the money. You won't regret it!
