Amazing views and a amazing experience!
We where in Sesimbra for four days so it was luck that we could join this amazing tour. I called Friday and we where on the tour Saturday because of a cancellation. We learned how to paddle, saw one of the most beautiful beaches and had the most amazing views. Nate was awesome and funny. He made you feel comfortable while teaching you what the most important things to remember are. He really knows what he is doing and has a great energy. Worth the price!

This will be the highlight of your trip!

We did the paddle winery tour plus another morning of paddle boarding. Couldn’t get enough! Nate gave us clear instructions and we felt very safe. He has great stories to tell and knows all the good places to check out in the area. During the tour by car we stopped at some interesting spots. Paddle boarding is a lot of fun and Mana Kai is the only one with the real paddle boards (not inflatable ones). Highly recommend booking here! Including the winery tour is worth it as well, you will see some amazing things and try out some very local wines.

An unforgettable, amazing experience
Jun 2020
I can highly recommend this SUP! It was our first time paddling and our first time at Arrabida Nature Park and we literally fell in love with this place. Nate was an excellent guide, with many many tips and such a positive attitude.
We live in Lisbon and therefore we saw beautiful spots here, but this one was/ is one of our favorites. Besides Nate took awesome pictures and videos of us, which could remind us of this beautiful day.
Thank u for this and every thing else you taught us!

Great experience!
Aug 2020
The paddle tour was great, enjoyable, and empowering. Nate makes you feel comfortable with his good mood and stories. It is funny that it takes a non-local to tell you bits of Portuguese history that makes me proud and more knowledgeable. Thanks for the great experience!

Fantastic experience
Aug 2019
SUP with Nate was a ton of fun and overall great experience. He's a fantastic host, very friendly and funny. Being out on clear water looking at sealife after a relaxing lunch on a remote beach was a truly peaceful and therapeutic experience! Would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to discover the area in between Setubal and Sesimbra

Highlight of my time in Portugal
Sep 2019
This trip was the highlight of my time in Portugal! Nate is an excellent teacher, and you couldn’t find a more beautiful place to go paddle boarding. Nate showed us the coolest parts of the beach, and in the middle we stopped and snorkeled around and then ate the most delicious local snacks. He could not have been more accommodating and I’m so glad I went on this experience. The next day, he also sent us a link with photos and videos from his GoPro that he took during the experience, which all came out amazing as well. Thanks Nate, it was amazing and I hope to come back to Portugal and do another paddle with you!

Damn that water is clear!
Aug 2019
Without a doubt the best way to see the beautiful coast is paddle boarding on the 'Turquoise Road' with Nate. We were paddle board beginners but Nate is a great instructor and gives tours that offer both a tranquil and adventurous experience! You can tell Nate loves what he does and the local area, which is clear when he makes the drive to and from the beach part of the experience with his many facts and funny stories. With the local tour, snorkeling, beach picnic and go-pro footage, Nate makes this not just a paddle-boarding experience but a really awesome day. Thanks again dude!

What a great day ... ate is the man!
Aug 2019
What an amazing experience! My wife only fell off the board once, because the was laughing too hard.

Nate is a great teacher with tons of experience, knows all the best spots — and overall a lot of good fun. Aside from making paddle boarding very accessible, he'll make you want to leave everything behind and move to Portugal.

And you get great GoPro footage after! Can't recommend this experience enough ... go for it.
