Are you ready for some fun on a boat tour and a kayak tour to Benagil?
Yes, this tour is a two in one
! We’ll start with a boat tour and then a kayak tour to Benagil
. This excursion departs from Ferragudo, near Portimão
, in the early morning. We know it’s early, but it’s better to avoid the heat. Besides, it’s great to start the day on the sea with some physical exercise!
The boat tour goes to the amazing region around the Benagil sea cave, its surrounding beautiful beaches and other caves and rock formations. Here, we step over on the kayaks for a fantastic kayak tour to Benagil with an experienced guide. The kayak tour to Benagil will allow you to enter the smallest caves all the way up to the famous arches of Marinha. The time split on the boat and the kayak is about 50/50. The kayak tour to Benagil is accessible to everyone and make it cross the least to the most experienced. Visiting the Benagil cave by kayak is the perfect activity for the whole family or group of friends!
From your kayak, you can admire the beauty of the Algarve coast closely and unravel the mysteries of caves and beaches inaccessible by land. Kayaking is a rather sporty and physical activity, so if you get tired, you always can come back to the boat. From the boat, you can enjoy a sunbath, refreshed by a dip in the crystal blue ocean and enjoy a cool drink. Even if there are people in the group who are not fond of kayaking, they can join on the boat! Everybody is welcome and everybody will enjoy! After the kayak tour to Benagil, we’ll go back to Ferragudo by boat. And to keep the memories forever, during the tour, a video of the trip with underwater footage will be made and send to you per email.
FAQ Boat and kayak tour to Benagil

This kayak tours is one of the only ways to get to the beach inside the Benagil cave. We'll stay in the famous cave of Benagil for about 20-30minutes but now more as there are many other beautiful caves of the Algarve coastline to explore!
What should I wear for the kayak tour?
On a kayak tour, there’s always a small possibility you’ll end up in the water. So be prepared for that ;) In the summer season, usually, just your swimsuit is enough for a kayak tour. Some prefer to wear some shorts or leggings or a t-shirt or lycra to protect from the wind or the sun. During the colder winter season, it might be better to wear a windbreaker. Above all, don’t forget a hat and sunscreen (and even sunglasses with a string to avoid losing them in the sea). Regarding shoes, kayak is done barefoot. After the tour, you might want to have a towel and some dry / warm clothes.
Can I store my belongings while doing the tour?
You can store your belongings in the office of the tour operator in Ferragudo. We recommend bringing as few things as possible. Camera-wise, you can bring a GoPro or similar or a waterproof bag, but no worries, on most tours, the guides will take some stunning pictures!
