My girlfriend and me were looking for a kayak trip up the river mira from milfontes. We found the contact of Carlos on tripadvisor and called him. He picked us up from our accommodation and explained us the route and how to kayak. The trip itself was just great, paddling with the tide up the river in a very remote site. Just listening to the birds singing and watching the wonderful landscape. No stress and easily doable by everybody. Carlos was waiting for us at the end. During the drive back he explained us the nature and spots around us. We absolutely recommend it!

We had a wonderful experience kayaking up the Mira River (15 k, approx 2.5 hrs). Everything about the excursion was well planned and communicated. The trip is timed so that the tide is working with you, and is not overly strenuous.
The Mira River is gorgeous and teeming with wildlife (birds and fish).

We had a very pleasent experience with the 3h kayak ride through the Mira river.

Even for those used to know the southern coast this is an interesting different way to explore the region with amazing views and nice contact with nature.

We strongly recomend.

We booked with enough time a trip (in August) to the fountains in the way from Vilanova to Odemira. But we were only 5 and the activity was not done ( perhaps he needed a high number of participants). It was communicated to us by Carlos just one day before.
In addition, we booked two kayaks. Initially we had to down the river Mira, but we only did a trip around the final flow of the Mira. The change was due to the wind conditions...

We took the 'Exploring Rio Mira' trip, dropped off at Casa Branca by our extremely friendly and helpful guide to paddle back to Vila Nova de Milfontes.
The plan was to float with the tide, which worked perfectly, except the wind came up more than expected and whipped the longer reaches of the river into significant waves, making the paddle more fun but also far more challenging!
The scenery and wildlife are stunning, and the last stretch with views of the bridge and town with the ocean waves breaking into estuary at the end a fitting finale.
Even in calmer conditions it is a significant stretch, so don't take it on lightly, he does offer a shorter out-and-back option too, but it was well worth the effort for me and my 73-year-young Mum!

We had a great afternoon kayaking from Vila Nova de Milfontes beach down the peaceful river through the national park. Carlos was really friendly and helpful and dropped us off and picked us up at the other end of our trip no trouble. Cheap price too. Well organised, and an easy paddle as he made sure that we we went with the tide. Very relaxing, fun day out.

We walked the Rota Vicentina and could not have done it without Carlos supporting us by moving our luggage and collecting and delivering us to the ends and starts . Brilliant service, always on time and very flexible. Would recommend his company to anyone thinking of doing this wonderful long distance trail.

Carlos was our kayak tour organiser, he had all the equipment and all we had to do was dress like we could get a little wet, shorts etc. Carlos picked the time to collect us from the hotel and suggested a time to set out down the Mira river according to the tidal timings, unfortunately the wind was not ideal and he was concerned for us that it would not be a good experience and safety concerns too if the wind got us too cold.( This was Feb 8th) SO he suggested we take the Kayaks out for a little paddle around the bay area and he said not to worry about paying him because the usual tour didn't work out.
I was so impressed with Carlos not money grabbing and interested only in our safety not his tour income and yet he had taken out time and expense to bring us out. As a group of 7 we still decided to pay him half as we took the kayaks for a 40 min paddle in the bay, which was good enough for us. But cannot recommend Carlos highly enough, he will look after you. I only gave 4 stars as our planned tour didnt work out.But 5 stars ***** for Carlos !...next time we will do the full tour.. weather permitting!
