What you'll do

The starting point of this Private (up to 10 people) adventure is the Sesimbra harbor, next to the Clube Naval de Sesimbra, where you will embark on a relaxing boat trip along the fantastic coast of Luiz Saldanha Marine Park filled with coves, deserted beaches, the already famous beaches of Ribeiro do Cavalo and the various "Covas" where the fishermen's stayed overnight during their fishing trips to the swordfish until reaching the impressive Cape Espichel.

Hardly accessible by pedestrian and extremely difficult by waterway without a motor boat these little secrets await our visit. Along the way, you will be presented with our stories and tales passed to us for generations and generations.

With us on the Boat will go some Stand Up Paddleboards (five boards on the boat) and snorkeling masks so that you can enjoy the ocean when we stop at one of these amazing beach areas of the Arrábida Natural Park.

We will include on the tour the famous pastry of Sesimbra called "Farinha Torrada" as well as water, fresh fruits and juices and for the older ones a taste of traditional Moscatel of Azeitão.

Do not forget to bring swimwear as you will not want to miss the opportunity to swim in paradise.

We are also the host to this Kayak and SUP experiences in the same region:

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.

Where you'll be

The Sesimbra area presents you with the highest limestone cliffs in Europe, incredible rock formations that existed 18 million years ago and gave way to small paradisiacal beaches located along its banks.

This is the best way to see most of the Arrábida Park coastline and at the same time enjoy a swim on a private beach. A day on the water that you will not forget and will for sure enjoy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 13 reviews.

We had a wonderful experience on Rui’s boat! Him and his brother were very hospitable, gave us some paddle boards to use and had so much knowledge of the area. We would definitely book again!

This was a really great experience along the Arrábida coast. We even got to follow a few dolphins right at the end! Would highly recommend.

Experiência incrível. Praias lindas, passeio agradável e a repetir. Além do tempo que ajudou, ficámos bastante à vontade com ambos os guias pois simpatia e hospitalidade não lhes falta. Adorámos!

A experiência foi fantástica! Gostámos imenso, os anfitriões foram muito simpáticos e acessíveis. Partilharam histórias e descobrimos locais magníficos de uma forma muito mais acessível e interessante. Ainda nos forneceram um mega lanche o que foi óptimo após a experiência de stand up paddle. Recomendamos esta experiência com toda a certeza ;) Obrigada ^^

Vale muito o passeio, os tripulantes são amáveis e atenciosos, fazem questão de explicar a história de cada sitio que são lindos e sem igual. Nos foram oferecidos água, frutas, bolos e um belo mergulho na costa. Podem fazer o passeio sem hesitar.

Très bon moment partagé sur le bateau, beaucoup d'explications sur les endroits visités et leur histoire. Nous avons également apprécié la liberté de nager, petite bronzette, faire du paddle ou du snorkeling ! Découvertes de petits mets typiques de la région. Encore merci, une équipe au top !
