Our two kids enjoyed the amazing experiences of Stand Up Paddle and Snorkling in the fascinating Arrábida. We got contacted confirming exact meeting point and time right after the purchasing online which gave us confidence for the activity. And we even received wonderful photos for free taken by the instructor during the activity. What a surprising souvenir! Thanks!

Nice teacher, funny day

We did the Stand-up-paddle tour in the morning and it was really nice. We got wetsuits and had some kind of a private class, because we were the only participants at this time. We did some exercises with the board and we paddled out of the port. Furthermore, we got the fotos that one of the team took afterwards via email. It was a perfect day, thank you!

Our session was a wonderful experience! We felt very secure but enterntained in the same time! Lukas made great atmosphere and taught us a lot even though it was our first SUP ever! Also, you can really experience the tour since there is no rush. Highly, highly recommend :)
