This was such a fun activity! I was solo traveling and booked this tour with no prior kayaking experience. I eventually teamed up with a fellow traveler and everything went smoothly. 3 hours of kayaking could be an intense activity for a first-timer but once you reach Praia do Ribeiro do Cavalo, you can decide to rest there or go further to explore more caves. I opted for the latter. Then we went back to the beach to rest for a while and we ate this delicious snack to regain our energy. Our guide Annabelle was great! She picked us up in the agreed location in Lisbon (please note that there are only two pick-up and drop off locations at the time of this writing, so make sure to choose either one of those addresses). Annabelle was also assisted by Rodrigo since there were kids with us. They both made sure that nobody would be left behind while kayaking, so it was very safe. Annabelle also took tons of photos and shared them with us after the tour. 5/5 would kayak with them again!

This was amazing! It was so cool to discover Sesimbra by kayak - the dramatic rocks, the small caves and the remote beach! The crew was amazing, and they even gave us lots of tips for the rest of our journey. The kayak-guides were very responsive to everyone's needs, took a lot of pictures of us and guided the group in a fun and interesting way through the experience. We had a stop at the beach with the mentioned cookies, and we could go for a swim in the water. We never wanted it to end! We've done some kayaking before in rivers and lakes, so we already knew we liked kayaking, but since the guides adjusts the tempo for the group you don't need to be experienced. That is the only negative things about it, if you're a fast paddler and you're in a group with beginners you might find it a little bit slow. Then I would recommend to contact them and ask about which experience to choose. I would recommend this to anyone who think it sounds fun!!

The nature where we kayaked is beautiful! The equipment was ok. The group was big but with three guides, it felt ok. The cookies we had on the beach tasted delightful =) Our guide Annabelle took lots of pictures during the tour and shared those with everyone afterwards, which I appreciated. The pickup location in the city is not super easy to know as our Google Maps showed two different spots on two different devices, by using the address we received. And we were not the only ones to have issues with that, it seemed. So it would be great to share a screenshot of the map or something similar, to help people know where exactly to go.
