YES! You are half way there into booking your day trip with me and my brothers. So let me tell you a few very important things to help you finish this first step. I know you can be overwhelmed by seeing 16 open spots on our experience but let me assure you that we always have 8 guests per host ratio so that you can live this trip through all the details we will be giving you along the way. We are experts in our field and have dedicated all our lives to water sports, so by doing so, we have created the safest Kayaking experience in the Lisbon area by always having a safety boat on the water supporting our group which is also ideal in order to transport all of our food and any items you might choose to bring with you to the remote beach where we will have our lunch on. We will start by meeting you at the entrance to Time Out Market in “Cais do Sodré” and very close to the most famous neighbor hoods and from there we will drive for about 45min to the village of Sesimbra in the heart of Arrábida Natural Park. Upon arriving in Sesimbra you will have time to change clothes and also use for the last time a public toilet before we start paddling towards the amazing coastline made of limestone. 100 meters cliffs jumping out of the ocean are waiting for us. You will find small passages as well as small and big caves where we can enter. Join us for a great experience.
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.
