This was an amazing, amazing experience. Our guide was so patient and knowledgeable, we have no prior experience doing kayaking and he spent time with us making sure we knew what we were doing. Kayak along the coast to a nature reserve where you get out of the kayaks to snorkel. I'm not at all a strong swimmer but again our guide was so patient and helpful. He suggested I can go and explore the ruins since I'm not a strong swimmer and it turned out to be the best part of the tour, he took us around and told us so much about the island and nature reserve. It was so so so cool.

Highly recommended, an experience you will not forget
Great trip. Would always recomment.

It was a really great trip. We started on point and had full 3 hours of fun! Kayaking was easy to learn and we saw a lot of fish while snorkeling.
Well organized kayaking event even in high wind conditions

We saw the clouds gather over Ilas Desertas and wondered about if the trip would Get cancelled… At the agreed time we met Marcio and he assured we’d go ahead.
The three couples all had quite different experience and fitness levels. Marcio managed it perfectly. There was a short set of drills in the harbour basin that gave him insight in how he can expect each team to manage.
The least experienced couple got attention, the more experienced and fit ones got guideance and a longer route. The snorkelling was fun as well, due to high winds Marcio adjusted the location but we still managed to see a lot of fish, some bigger schools and some smaller ones.
The equipment was well maintained and worked fine in the swell that was over one meter high.

My background is 40 years of kayaking and I’ve organized several group events also this current season.
A brilliant time!

I would 100% recommend this experience. The guide was amazing and shared all his insights about the island, the nature reserve and the fish present. He was incredibly helpful and attentive and did all he could to ensure we had a wonderful time!
Not what we expected

I wanted to get back on the water in a kayak and snorkel off Madeira in the nature reserve and this looked the perfect trip. The sea was calm, the sun was hot and we, mother(70) and gown up daughter, were the only people other than the guide and his pretty young lady who was determined to sit back, cover herself in suntan lotion and soak up the sun. We have kayaked together before so didn't need to practice in the harbour. Our guide struggled manfully with his English but we felt there must have been more to talk about having read previous reviews. Once in the reserve, the kayaks were strapped together and to two of us plopped into the water to snorkel. Unfortunately the sea was quite murky and we saw very little but the experience was good. Our guide then asked us what we wanted to do next, we suggested paddling further along the reserve but this was not possible. After a while of just bobbing about in the sun we said we were happy to return even if it was too early. This is when the most exciting part of the trip began. The sea swell increased and we were carried forward on the waves, white horses abounded, all was fun until we got the reflected waves off the harbour walls. My daughter and I decided it was time to go for it and powered back to the landing, I am sorry to say we did not hang about for our guide who was a considerable distance behind us. We both thoroughly enjoyed the experience even though it was not as expected.
