Madeira: Garajau Nature Reserve Kayak and Snorkel Tour

1. Madeira: Garajau Nature Reserve Kayak and Snorkel Tour

After getting picked up from your hotel, start the day at Funchal Harbour 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 towards Lazareto. Stop for a break on the beautiful pebble beach and take in the views of the surrounding rock features from times gone by. Afterwards, 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.

Absolutely fantastic experience! The guide was very helpful and friendly. I was scared to go to snorkelling in the water but he encouraged me and helped me in and stayed with me until I was comfortable. Without him I would have not seen the beauty of Garjau reserve and all widelife it homes

Kayak on the shore to the nature reserve, nice route. Then get to know a great place to snorkel. A great excursion and two super nice guides. Including collection there and back directly in front of your hotel.

Really enjoyed our experience with Roy. Took us out on the Kayaks and then showed us places to snorkel. Told us lots about the area and even let us hold a starfish. We had fun with a great group of people.

Marcio was a great guide, and even with the language barrier he tried to make us understand as much as possible. Very nice activity although physical!

In the kayak you can only take the essentials with you, everything else gets wet!
