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.

Para começar, o guia é muito simpático e acessível, tornando esta experiência ainda melhor. São 2h de caiaque e 1h de snorkeling, onde se pode ver vários peixes e outros animais marinhos (como polvos). Foi uma das melhores experiências que já vivi!

Great tour, nice driver who picked us up, nice and competent guide for the tour, it was really great! But if you tend to get seasick, you should think twice about kayaking on the Atlantic! Be sure to follow the guide's instructions.

Very pleasant activity carried out in small groups, allowing you to exercise while having a view of Funchal, then to observe the fish thanks to the masks and snorkels provided.

It didn’t go strictly according to plan but that was due to weather, still had a great afternoon kayaking and snorkelling. Our guide was absolutely brilliant. Well worth a go!

We were collected from our hotel and taken down to the harbour. Pedro was patient and very attentive to safety. We had a really good time. Happy to recommend to others.
