With our premium boards, you can paddle through the Algarve’s famed blue waters.

Faro Paddleboarding Rentals for Every Need

We have both single and double paddleboards to choose from, all of which are stable, safe, comfortable, and easy to use.

And best of all, you don’t need any experience to get the most out of your own SUP adventure!

You can choose from the following rental periods:

  • Full-day
  • Half-day
  • 2.5-hours

If you choose a 2.5-hours hire, you have time to explore Ria Formosa and have a break in one of its islets. We recommend this shorter rental period for families with young children.

Hiring a SUP for half a day or a full day will give you more time to explore the lagoon, perhaps visiting one of Ria Formosa’s islands. 

Here, you can enjoy a well-deserved rest close to where the lagoon meets the sea. Have a picnic or swim in crystal-clear waters. Enjoy the huge blue skies in one of Portugal’s sunniest regions. 

We want you to have a great time out paddling. Before your stand-up paddle in Faro, our team will provide a map and a detailed briefing about suggested routes you can take to make the most of your time. 

We can also recommend other itineraries as well as different departure times and rental periods according to the weather conditions and forecast, the tides, the winds, and the currents.

If you have any unanswered questions about our Faro paddleboarding rentals, please feel free to contact us for all the information you need.
