What you'll do

Arriving at the Marina of Sesimbra you will have time to change clothes and get ready before entering our boat and start our trip. We will take you by boat to Ribeiro do Cavalo beach where we will jump on our Stand Up Paddle boards and get to know the amazing landscape Sesimbra has to offer.

If your are a novice at Stand Up Paddling don't be afraid because I will give you all the necessary instructions about it. We will paddle always close to the shore line while our boat follows us making this the safest way to enjoy the experience.

We will have a break on one of the beautiful beaches in the area where you will be able to enjoy a nice homemade pic-nic and some free time to take in all that nature has to offer.

This is the most exclusive way to visit Arrábida Natural Park on a Stand Up Paddle board since we can escape the crowds by using our boat. Start with a boat tour and finish by relaxing on a paddle board.
Other things to note
We will be spending a fare share of the day in the ocean and under the sun. Don't forget plenty of sun screen and if you are afraid of getting sea sick we can provide pills to help you but we have to do it before going on the ocean.

Due to Covid-19 we do not recommend using the public WC here. This is a PRIVATE Experience for a group of 6 friends of a family up to 10 people.

I'm a host on Airbnb and already have this same experience online but starting from Lisbon. Due to Covid 19 many guests are traveling with their own car and therefor it makes total sense to have the experience starting directly in Sesimbra and our guest can join us that way.

Where you'll be

You will find me in Sesimbra, a village in the heart of Arrábida Natural Park where I will guide you through the local history that has been happening here for generations. We will find our way from the village towards the amazing beach of Ribeiro do Cavalo, Cova da Mijona and Inferno beach. Each one perfect in their own way.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 8 reviews.

Loved the experience with Pedro (Rui’s Brother). He was a fantastic tour guide and extremely helpful for beginner’s SUP. Would definitely recommend to others coming to the Lisbon area.

Our paddle-boarding day with Rui and his brother was wonderful. We were a group of mixed abilities and Rui made sure that everyone was comfortable with where they were at. We were very glad he suggested borrowing wetsuits as it was a slightly cloudy day and they really kept out any chill. The area we visited was absolutely beautiful, crystal clear waters high cliffs and cave exploration, followed by lunch on a secluded, hard-to-reach beach. Rui's local knowledge was second-to-none and his stories of the area were an added bonus. It was great to have the boat too; for those who needed a rest, as a place to leave our stuff and to get out of the harbour to 'the good stuff' a bit quicker than our slow paddling would have allowed. :D

My partner and I had such an amazing morning during this experience. The team was super friendly from the start and the location was beautiful. The paddle boarding was a little shaky to start but with encouragement from the team, we were soon away, although I think my partner fell in 10 times. The beach stops were lovely especially the opportunity to snorkel and thanks to Pedro for taking some great pictures of us. Thanks for a great day, highly recommend it!

We spontaneously booked a SUP tour with Rui, showing us how to SUP and bring us to special places. It was a wonderful and perfect tour. We met at Clube Naval de Sesimbra as we stayed nearby. They also offer transfer from Lisbon. After a little time on the boat and nice stories from time to time we got on our SUPs! He explained everything very clear and gave us a safe and comfortable feeling. He also always joined us in his board all the time and helped if needed. We saw may fish, enjoyed the wonderfully colored water and our nice group (2 other super funny couples). We felt great on the water- after the shaky legs at the beginning ;) After a picnic we went with the boat back to the harbor. Thanks again! Highly recommended!

Experiência incrível! O Pedro e o Mário eram super simpáticos e com muita paciência para a nossa falta de experiência no sup. A farinha torrada que oferecem é deliciosa e a praia onde paramos (praia do inferno) era simplesmente paradisíaca. Recomendo muito!
