Our trip would actually have started on Wednesday, September 25th at 8 a.m. Would then be postponed to Wednesday 26.09 at 10 a.m. due to the weather. Was not a problem for us as we had no other plans for the day. However, the change was still very spontaneous. Otherwise everything was great and mega! Filipe was a great guide !!
Thanks to Filipe for this experience! We already knew him from his surfing lessons. (which we totally recommend as well). We enjoyed the blue water, the nature, good weather and the great talks with Filipe. Overall he gave us great tipps and told us a lot about Arrabida. We totally recommend it. Blessings, Mathea and Laura
Felipe is a true job master! Trust him to bring you to the right place at the right time. We snorkel in a beautiful bay of the National park. Highly recommended experience, different from the usual ones, for the tourists visiting Lisbon.
Exciting experience - snorkeling on an (almost) lonely beach.
An excellent morning exploring the paradise of Arrábida.
