What you'll do

Yes! You have found us and the best way to enjoy a day on a beautiful landscape.

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 of Portugal. Passing by "Ribeiro do Cavalo" Beach it's mandatory to stop and enjoy a swim and have a break.

We are very happy to say our groups are limited to a small group of guests maintaining a great ability to communicate with every single person and also keeping our equipment clean and safe for everyone that uses it.

Our paddling pace will be of a tour and not a race and our goal is to share with you all our local knowledge passed along from generation on generation. This part of the Arrábida Park is filled with breathtaking views composed by ancient cliffs formations.

Join us for a great experience.

Who am I? Well, I and my family are watermen and outdoor people that founded Meira Pro Center in 1981 as a windsurfing school and that now became a family business with all of us working together and sharing our passion for the ocean with others. We are athletes and free-riders dedicated to all ocean sports.

Join us for a truly local experience in the ocean surrounded my years and years of dedication to the ocean and this region.

My brother Pedro and Afonso (https://www.airbnb.pt/users/show/140804213) are my co-hosts for the tour and just like me, they spend most of their time in the ocean.

We also host a Stand Up Paddle Experience - https://www.airbnb.pt/experiences/103136 - so if you are not sure yet about what to do we can help you or your group having a great day!

Amazing experience!! Amazing views and a great activity for friends or couples. Such a fun way to spend the day in the sun and see Sesimbra from a different view. We found the 4hrs a perfect length of time and the host was great at giving extra recommendations and giving us some history about the town. Highly recommend🌟

We had a great experience! Amazing view and the perfect guide! The only thing missing was the sandwich that were supposed to be included in the price through airbnb booking. You get very hungry after 4 hours of paddeling.

The kayak trip is such a great way to see the stunning coastline whilst being active! The hosts are great and you learn a lot about the area whilst kayaking. We stopped at various locations along the way and my favourite was the quiet beach where we stopped for a swim. I’d definitely recommend!
