Full description

Start the day at the harbor where you will learn everything you need to know about kayaking before heading to the nature reserve. Upon arrival at Garajau, enjoy a 40-minute paddle toward Lazareto. Stop for a break on the beautiful pebble beach and take in the views of the surrounding rock features from times gone by. Afterward, discover Madeira's native marine life as you snorkel through crystal-clear waters. In the event of poor weather conditions, you will have the opportunity to explore the sea from the safety of your kayak instead. Finish the day with a spot of cliff diving before heading back to your hotel for the evening.

Really good fun and helpful guide Pedro. The kayaking wasn't too exertive and after that we were taken to a lovely spot for snorkeling with lots of fish. The whole thing is basically taking place along the city coast, which is convenient for those who stay here.

We had a very pleasant experience. The entire trip took about 3 hours. We started by kayaking about 45 minutes from Funchal to the snorkeling spot, then snorkel for 1 hour and back. It was a balanced experience (long enough to be fun, but not too long as to become boring). The snorkeling spot is quite nice with lots of rocks and fish to explore. Pedro was very patient and helpful throughout. Highly recommended.

We were beginners including a 13 year old and found the kayaking easily manageable, with clear instruction. We felt in good hands with the guide and the trip was a good length for us, a little tiring as expected but good fun. The only slight negative was we were given final pick up information about 10pm the night before the activity, although the instructor was easily contacted and we were picked up outside our hotel anyway.
