Let's start our adventure by meeting at Time Out Market (Mercado da Ribeira), in Cais do Sodré at the designated starting time and drive to the village of Sesimbra. We will arrive in about one hour, after a quick stop so you can immediately enjoy the amazing landscape from the top of the surrounding hills. Arriving at the harbour you will have time to change clothes and get ready before entering our boat and start our trip. We will take you to the best locations to Stand Up Paddle board since we are the only experience with a boat allowing us to search for the best conditions along this amazing coastline. We will then jump on to our paddleboards and give you all the necessary information to do it correctly. Don't be afraid of falling because we can provide long or short wetsuits and everyone will use a lifevest (mandatory). As we find our way along the cliffs on our boards our boat will be next to us and therefore you will have the safest experience in the ocean. 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. You can take all your belongings with you on our boat and we can provide them to the beach if you want to. This entire experience takes about seven hours from starting time in Lisbon until you are back in Lisbon.
My name is Rui and like my father and brother Pedro, we are watermen! I grew up surrounded by all the toys you can imagine in the shape of boards so naturally, I followed my family's footsteps and became an international Kitesurf athlete ranked top 5 in the World and winner of multi-international and national events just like my father did years before while Windsurfing. For me, the ocean and the mountain are my home and where I feel at ease. I have spent all my life exploring the cliffs and beaches that I will guide you to. Kayaking and Stand Up Paddle are our "no wind" sports activities and you can find more about those experiences by visiting my profile. Join me and my family for an amazing day trip at our home and by the end of the journey, we hope that you can imagine yourself being our neighbor.

The area of Sesimbra presents you with the highest limestone cliffs in Europe, amazing rock formations that exist for 18M years and make it for small paradise beaches located along its shores located in the heart of Arrábida Nature Park. Prepare yourself to see the amazing contrast or green and blue only found in this region by enjoying the view from the ocean and from the beach.
You will be on the ocean so prepare yourself to enjoy the water. We can provide wetsuits and we always have the option of Kayaks if you don't feel comfortable on the board but we need to know in advance. This is the safest tour available because the boat and two guides are always next to you.
