Upon meeting us we will brief you on paddling technics and on our route along the coastline of the Arrábida Natural Park. We will be visiting an area that is dated 200M years and that created one of the most beautiful areas os Portugal.

My name is Rui and like my father and brother Pedro, we are watermen! I grew up surrounded by all the toys you can imagine in the shape of boards so naturally, I followed my family's footsteps and became an international Kitesurf athlete ranked top 5 in the World and winner of multi-international and national events just like my father did years before while Windsurfing.

For me, the ocean and the mountain are my home and where I feel at ease. I have spent all my life exploring the cliffs and beaches that I will guide you to. Kayaking and Stand Up Paddle are our "no wind" sports activities and you can find more about those experiences by visiting my profile.

Join me and my family for an amazing day trip at our home and by the end of the journey, we hope that you can imagine yourself being our neighbor.

I had never tried kayaking before this trip but Alfonso just made it feel so easy. I enjoyed every bit of this trip: the kayaking, the scenery, the crystal clear water, the food, all the information Alfonso provided and the punctuality and friendliness of Valery(our driver from and to Lisbon). Absolutely recommended!

Great time with the team. Weather wasn’t on our side but still fabulous scenery. Travel to and from was seamless and the guys really knew their stuff.

We had a lovely day kayaking with Pedro! Very convenient pick up in Lisbon and all necessary equipment provided! We felt very safe in terms of COVID (small group, wear masks in the vehicle). The kayak location was SO beautiful and Pedro told us stories and facts about what we saw which made us appreciate it even more! We also got to see a lot of fish and jellies 😊 thank you for everything!

This was a great kayak trip with a guide who fishes for a living so could point out all the fish and name them as we paddled. The sea and coast are stunning and the opportunity to swim in the lovely cool Atlantic was welcome at lunch. Lunch had local Sesimbra cake (and sandwiches, fruit and juice). Even better was how much our host cared about the sea, we saw some plastic bags and a bottle floating and he went to collect them, which is the kind of thing that matters to me. I really recommend this.

The trip was amazing. The view of the oceans, the mountains, and rocks was something I replayed in my head even after the trip was over. It was an awe-dropping experience. My hosts were very knowledgeable. The sandwiches and sweets were amazing, along with a taste of one of Portugal’s sweet wine. I enjoyed this kayak trip very much. I would do it again if I could!
