We had such a good time paddleboarding with bruno. We had never done it before so he taught us how to use the board safely and how to stand up on it. He was really patient with everyone while we tried to use the board. He showed us some amazing caves that you cant get to by land and told us some interesting facts about them. I would 100% recommend using bruno for paddleboarding, he was great. Thank you

Tiago was AMAZING!!!! He was so kind and patient with us. We weren’t the best students, but he was there at every fall to catch us. He was helpful with showing us fossils and telling us the history of the caves. We were nervous at first, but he was so reassuring and encouraging. He took a ton of photos and got our best angles. Would 100% recommend this experience to anyone interested. We had an amazing time.

Great fun on SUP, from the very basics to cave exploration. Good equipment, nice introduction and pacing of the trip (there was enough time to get a feel of the board and try standing up a couple of times on calmer waters) and a very friendly instructor. Bruno is simply a cool guy and it was a pleasure to spend 2hrs with him. He's shown us some beautiful caves and gave us a bit of background of how they came to be and even told us a bit about the fossils there. He also took some nice pics of us with his gopro so we were able to focus on paddling and enjoying the sights. I highly recommend this trip, it's a great way to explore Benagil caves.
