Algarve SUP

What we do for you

Algarve SUP provides you with a new and unique way to see the Algarve. We run two hour stand up paddle tours every day* in two locations.

  • The first is in Faro, paddling through the picturesque Ria Formosa Natural Park.
  • The second is deep amidst some of the most impressive cliffs, caves and coves you will ever experience.

Our philosophy is simple: WE WANT YOU TO HAVE A GREAT TIME! This is why we have WSA trained SUP instructors and coach all of you before leaving land. All our tours are accompanied by a guide for your enjoyment.

We have been doing this since 2014 and love every single minute of it! For now, you can read more about us if you'd like, however we're really looking forward to seeing you on the water! Choose your tour or get in touch for a custom SUP tour.

All the best,
Nick and Mauro

We wanted to create a business that would change people's lives. We wanted to show you a slice of beauty that would introduce you to a sport so peaceful, so meditative and so mind changing that it would turn your holiday into an incredible experience. Judging from the majority of our past clients responses we have managed to do that.

It is heart warming to see how so many of you are so moved by your experiences on the water with us.

We started back in 2014 after Nick became disillusioned with his day job in the IT business and set out to create an outdoor company. He wanted to get back to the natural pursuits of his youth: surfing, hiking, river rafting, wind surfing. The new sport of paddleboarding encompassed all of that and more!

Now, he has partnered up with Mauro, a sport science graduate and accomplished surfer. Together they take you on two hour stand up paddle tours, organize the Guadiana Challenge every year and set off on a yearly stand up paddle board adventure.

In 2015 they paddle boarded 160kms across the Algarve. In 2016 Nick descended the Zezere and Tejo rivers ending in Lisbon, 270kms later.

In collaboration with Simon from Hutchsupwear, Nick also recorded 16 episodes of an audio podcast called SUPfm where he interviewed one of the world's best paddlers, Kai Lenny, amongst other incredible guests.
