        Great kayak tour in Sesimbra
        Very enjoyable kayaking on the south coast of the Arrábida peninsula. Opted for pick-up in Lisbon, which made getting to Sesimbra very easy. The guides were friendly and professional, the scenery was lovely, and I had a wonderful time.

        Amazing tour of impressive Portuguese coastline
        This outfit was recommended by a friend and I'm so glad I did the trip. Joao and Rodrigo our guides were excellent (and even super helpful picking other things to do in Lisbon). We had some serious headwind in leaving and returning to the port, but the beauty of the tour more than made up for the effort. You'll see parts of the coast you'd otherwise miss. Can't say enough good things about these guys.

        Best Kayak experience ever!
        Really lovely day! Seamless pick up and drop off - definitely recommend choosing this option as it’s much easier than any public transport. Before beginning the tour you’re given a quick run down on how to kayak which was really appreciated as two new beginners. Wet suits and shoes are offered and there is space to store valuables and anything not needed on the kayak. Three members of staff went out with us all, which meant the group could be split up for all abilities. Plenty of opportunities to stop and enjoy the views and hear some interesting facts about the area. You stop off at a secluded and peaceful beach in which snacks are provided. The tour guides took lots and lots of pictures too!! Genuinely couldn’t have asked for a better day. Lovely staff and one of our favourite days! Special thanks to Naiara for sticking with us at the back and to João too!

        Fantastic half-day tour!
        It was a fantastic tour! Our tour guide Naiara took care of all of us (having different kayaking skills), stopped by to take photos to preserve these moments and to tell us a bit about the surroundings. All in all a very pleasant day, highly recommended!

        Sesimbra Kayak Tour
        Our teens were tired of touring historical sites, gardens, and architecture so we cancelled our day trip to Obidos and booked this tour at 9:00 pm the night before. We traveled from Lisbon and opted to take a Uber for transportation so we could spend more time in Sesimbra after the kayak tour. The trip was approx 50 minutes and 50 euros from downtown Lisbon. Our family of 5 including 21, 19, and 15 year old all had a great time. While not very experienced kayakers we had all been a few times leisurely before except for my husband. He picked it up pretty quickly though. The tour guides (Annabelle, Ines, and Rodrigo) were all fantastic. Spoke multiple languages, provided excellent instruction and conversed with everyone. Even took pictures along the way and shared them with us afterward. The sites are beautiful along the tour including a stop to RIBEIRO DO CAVALO BEACH. We’d highly recommend this tour.

        See Sesimbra from the water!
        Super fun experience paddling around the beaches and shore line. If you're coming from Lisbon, having the transportation option is very helpful. Staff were interesting and attentive. Fun for experienced and new kayakers!

        02 July Sesimbra kayaking
        Fantastic day out on the water! Had two friendly, knowledgeable guides (Annabelle and Rodrigo) who gave us a great opportunity to see some of the beauty of the Sesimbra coast up close. Suitable for all levels of experience, would very much recommend for anyone. Thanks!

        Made my trip to Portugal worthwhile
        Amazing experience Lucas was super funny and very passionate. Really great experience would do it again 10/10. He is passionate about cleaning up the water as well when he was guiding us he would also pick up the trash we saw along the water which i found very thoughtful. You don’t need to a be a pro kayaker or anything it’s easy to pick up. Bring sunscreen and prepare to get wet haha

        Kayak with Bork was amazing!!
        Lucas and Rodrigo were extremely nice. The kayaking time was perfect. I was afraid it was going to be too short but we were kayaking for the time they advertised. Lucas was very safety conscious and he was a great leader. Very polite also, helping us on and off the kayak. One of the greatest things is that Lucas took lots of great pictures of everyone in the group and sent them to us right away after we were done.

        amazing kayaking experience!
        I came to Lisbon with a few of my friends from study abroad; we wanted to find something that we could afford and be in nature for a day. This was the perfect trip; the driver was so amazing and gave us a tour of Lisbon on our ride and our kayaking trip couldn't have been more beautiful. Everything went smoothly and this was definetly a highlight of my trip. I would 100% recommend to anyone staying in or around Lisbon.

        Awesome kayaking experience in a beautiful area with passionate guide !
        Awesome experience! Kayaking with Inès (the tour-guide) is truly worth the time as she was very welcoming and smiling from the moment we arrived to the end of the tour. Moreover, Ines shared with us many stories and fun facts about such a nice area which made the trio even nicer. Cherry on the top is that she took nice pictures of our group during the trip 🙂 Safe environment with quality equipment as well. Highly recommended for 3 hours of fun in a beautiful area !!

        Lovely kayaking
        Had a great time doing the 3hour kayak around Sesimbra with my father. Saw some caves, lots of fish and had a lovely swim and melon at a gorgeous beach! Guides were very friendly and informative. Would definitely recommend 💕

        Fun and relaxation in a beautiful landscape
        Our family of four had a great time during this kayak trip. The beautiful landscape and green and blue waters would have been enough in my book to rate it as excellent. But our guides, Annabelle and Zé, made it even better. They were super nice, very informative and helpful with everything. Annabelle went out of her way to make sure our family could make it to Sesimbra on time after we had logistics issues at our hotel. So glad we made it and enjoyed such a beautiful day at the maritime reserve in Arrabida Natural Park. And we got some nice photos to cherish, thanks to their generosity!
