Full description
Paddle through the Algarve's famed blue waters in a kayak. The Rotomod sit-on-top kayaks are stable, safe, comfortable, and easy to use, making them the perfect way for you to explore the waters of the Algarve. You don’t need any experience to get the most out of your very own kayaking adventure. Various types of kayaks are available for rent. The first is the Rotomod Ocean Duo, a comfortable double kayak that can seat up to 2 adults. There is also the Rotomod Ocean Quattro, perfect for families. This kayak can seat up to 2 adults and 1 child. The Rotomod Tango is a heavy duty solo kayak, ideal for bigger paddlers or people travelling with a lot of heavy gear. If you don’t have that much gear, then the Toromod Mambo might be for you, with excellent maneuverability from this solo kayak. Just for your safety, your kayak hire will also include light paddles and comfortable safety vests.

wir erfuhren vor Ort, dass es sich um ein Kajak handelt bei dem man im nassen sitzt was im Februar einfach viel zu kalt ist Das einzig Gute war, dass uns alternativ ein anderer Ausflug angeboten wurde. Finde aber die Bootsfahrt in Ria Formosa lohnt sich nicht.

Hat alles reibungslos geklappt, Tipps für Touren erhalten, Karte und Ausrüstung dabei. Aufpreis muss jedoch für Rückenlehne (unbedingt zu empfehlen) und wasserdichten Tank, wenn man braucht, bezahlt werden.

Super fun! If you book the 4 hours there is plenty of time to kayak all the way down to Faro Beach where there are really nice restaurants to stop for lunch. Also saw a lot of birds and tiny crabs.
