Me and my friend came for the sunset tour and was blown away. We were greeted at the correct meeting point and was taken to the boat where the captain spoke through everything we needed to know. We set sail at the correct time and at the beginning of our journey we was offered food and drink. The boat was lovely and clean too. We spent lots of time on the front of the boat where we was offered blankets and more food and drink. The trip was finished off with the most amazing sunset along the coastline! I couldn’t recommend this enough to anyone! The captain and team made sure we was comfortable the whole time and they were so kind, polite and friendly! Thanks again to the amazing guys :)

First it was parawaiting through fog and no wind. But Nelson is a real heart person and stayed confident and patient. In the time he explained us a lot about the Portuguese culture and landscape. At the end of the day we got the experience of our trip. Finally free to fly like a bird. Inside gladly again

Diego Adam and Zach were brilliant! It wasn’t the calmest sea but we felt like they were in control the whole time. Really manageable paddling, they were so knowledgeable and the whole trip was thoroughly enjoyable. Would definitely recommend.

Really enjoyed the tour, our guide GIL was very friendly and made everyone feel comfortable. He was also very informative, organised and professional. Although we didn’t get the best of sunsets, the view alone was worth it and a Must!

This keep ride was amazing and Marco is a great guide. He is very witty and made the ride very entertaining. He knew a lot about the plants and got to smell the fragrance of wild lavender, orange, lemon, oregano, to name a few
