The ocean and the coastline of sesimbra on a kayak is an experience of its own. But that's not all you get. Enter Gabriel, a nature angel in disguise as a guide. From one second to the next you will be giggling and then transfixed by his utmost respect for the ocean. Wonderful company. (if you go on a 'less' beautiful day - you might get as lucky as we did and end up with an essentially private tour which felt like kayaking with a friend - ask him about the orcas and the netflix documentary 'My octopus teacher'!)
The tour was great, the sights are beautifull! Great clear blue sea and some amazing cliff formations. Worth the arm pain of the paddling :). The guide was also great and friendly. Only suggestion I would give to the guide is keeping the team together, as at some point on the way back we felt the responsibility to keep an eye of the last kayak as the girls were far behind the rest. Should something happened to them noone would have noticed.
This is a trip well worth taking. A relatively easy kayak out of the marina and along the coast to see the caves, cliffs, clear waters, fish, jellyfish and sea birds. Good for all ages and the stop at the beach is a lovely break. Watchout: the walk to the meeting point is further than you think from Sesimbra town!
An absolute delight, highlight of my trip and will definitely do it again when I return, a hidden gem. Luciano and the team are absolutely amazing, never seen such genuine people that enjoy and are passionate about what they do.. totally loved it... I would recommend this 110%
Super nice instructor and good material. Serious security. The beach is fantastic and there’s a good scenery along the cliffs, but you have to row for like 30min along the pier before getting there. Also I think it was a little bit pricey for kayaking (50€/pers).
