Full description
After getting picked up from Funchal, start the day at the 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.

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.

Beautiful tour with a challenge depending on the swell You will definitely get wet, you can't wear more than bathing suits. We made the best of it and enjoyed the fish. Information about the fish would have been nice (display board or something). The kayak route is quite long. Solid bathing shoes are recommended, as there are many stones in the bay and in the water. We even saw a seal. We had to insist on being picked up from the hotel, but it worked.
