SUP Portugal

Stand Up Paddleboarding lessons & tours in Lisbon & Algarve
Book Your Adventure

Stand Up Paddleboarding, or SUP, is a very popular outdoor activity with people of all ages and fitness levels. You can get to grips with the watersport quite fast, and if you’re already an experienced paddler, paddleboarding in new destinations never gets old. SUP involves holding a long paddle whilst keeping your balance on a large surf type board, and using it to move across the water.

Portugal is SUP paradise with clear sea-green waters and a warm climate. West Algarve is perfect for nature lovers who are looking for some peace and quiet. Just being one with your surroundings whilst paddling across the spectacular coastline, discovering cave systems and paddling underneath naturally shaped arches. Cascais is a great destination for those on a city-trip in the Lisbon region. Only a short train-ride away and just a few min walk from the train station, you’ll find a nicely designed promenade with large urban beach. Here we glide into the water and discover the harbour of Cascais. Why not end your day with a well-deserved drink at one of the many beach bars?

What an adventure. 50 staff in two groups over a week, I organised the trip with Heleen and everything was spot on. SUP, coasteering, sea kayaking, mountain biking and surfing. Coasteering was amazing, the best we have had and we do this every year. Cascais was a great location. Dan and Heleen were so cool and Nuno was a daily ray of sunshine for us all. I am very grateful for their care during our stay and returning us home with nothing more than bruising and muscle ache! We hope to see you again one day. Emma xxxread more

Just returned from a fantastic 5 days in Portugal with big blue adventures. Dan and Heleen were excellent hosts who greeted us at the airport, I instantly felt relaxed as everything was taken care of. The bed and breakfast Onda Vicentina was the perfect base for our group, surrounded by beautiful beaches and coastline. All of the activities were well organised and I absolutely loved the supping and surf lessons, hands down, the most exhilarating thing I’ve ever done. Our trip was rounded off with a sunset hike and wine tasting, hosted by Michele and Flavia, a truly memorable experience.I can’t wait to book my next trip with Big blue adventures. Thanks guys, you rock!read more
