SUP Sunrise Benagil

Suzie D.

Amazing early morning tour with John before all of the tourists arrived on the beach. We explored beautiful caves and beaches along the shore. Great instruction and he captured some amazing shots of us on the paddle boards and in the caves – thank you John!

We had a fantastic time with ZEN SUP. Our guide met up on time at the pre agreed location. They had all of the gear we needed for an amazing SUP experience. The location was beautiful, far beyond our expectations. The pictures of Benagil caves don’t do the SUP experience justice. And after the first cave they take you to another, then another and another. All the time they helped us with our skills and made us feel so comfortable on the water. An excellent trip. One we remember for a long time.

We have just returned from our tour with John. It was a very special journey. John is a great guy and took us to the most beautiful caves near Benagil Beach.
We started early in the morning, so, it was only the three of us. It was the most wonderful experience. Thanks, John!!

Amazing cave tour at Benagil. Excellent supervision and really helpful. Beautiful scenery and well worth the early start to have such calm waters and beaches to ourselves. Highly recommend.

SUP Beginner Ria Formosa

Looking forward to spending time again with John, Heike, and Luna. If you fancy learning to SUP or just want to spend some great time on the water with lovely people, then ZEN SUP are the people for you.

We had a great time paddle-boarding. John (the instructor) is fantastic – we were all beginners and he had all of us feeling confident within minutes. He took time with each of us individually while out on the water too so you were never stranded or simply following the crowd. John clearly has passion for his work and is generally a nice, easy going and fun guy – making the day really good fun as well as learning something new. He also has a dog called Luna who came along with us for the trip on John’s Paddleboard which was a bonus (we all love dogs!). Would highly recommend to anyone and thanks to John for a memorable day!

Learning to SUP with ZEN SUP was an amazing experience. With passion and dedication, Heike and John make it so easy to do, teaching you how, taking you out on the water and in no time you enjoy paddling on the most beautiful spots like the Ria Formosa. What stands out most with them is professionalism, passion, and fun. Great teachers that know what they do.

Went with John for a personal lesson today as it was my first experience. Went from Faro island eastwards down the estuary off the Atlantic Ocean. John gave an excellent brief and was incredibly helpful and good fun at the same time. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will go out again….. maybe the caves at Bengali next time. Definitely recommend you give him a try… well worth it.

SUP Sunset Ria Formosa

Roger L.

Enjoyed a fantastic ZEN SUP Tour along the glorious Algarve coastline, both at sunrise and at sunset, unforgettable. Using top quality equipment, the most professional and friendly instruction gives you the most memorable experience imaginable.

Katie B.

My partner and I have just been on the sunset SUP tour. Neither of us have tried SUP before but we had an amazing time.
I would highly recommend using ZEN SUP to anybody. Thanks again for a great experience.

Jessica P.

Thank you Heike and John for this magical experience. Watching the sun go down whilst paddle boarding was so beautiful.
Can’t wait to see the photos. We will definitely be back!

Art D.

We had the most fabulous sunset tour with John and his colleagues. Fantastic communication, attention to detail and safety. Lovely home made smoothie half way! Small group of 3 adults and 3 teenagers – we all absolutely loved the tour.

SUP Yoga

Patras L.

Imagine practicing Yoga in a place where the roof is the blue sky, the walls are the trees, the floor is the water and the companions are the birds.
For me it was a dream experience, I really enjoyed, because it is going beyond Yoga on a classroom, due the contact with the nature, the freedom of being in an open space.

Flora M.

Through SUP Yoga I found out the perfect combination of pure connection with mother nature and the self.
The paddleboard yoga class is a true and wonderful journey to the most genuine essence that characterizes each one of us.

Brigitte J.

My first SUP Yoga class was magnificent! It was amazing and fun, a challenge for both body and concentration.
Letting myself drift on a board while laying in Shavassana in the open nature simply felt like a dream.
