Full description
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.

We were three couples, so six people plus guide. Pickup from area hotels was included. Unfortunately, our accommodation was not in the area. We were supposed to get into town - where you have to pay for parking, which I found a shame. When I asked them to pick us up somewhere where you can park for free because we can't pay in cash, the information came that you can pay by card at the CR7 car park, which unfortunately wasn't true. So we had to withdraw money with a fee. That was the only downside to the whole tour - the guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and spoke great English. The tour was challenging but not too strenuous, we were able to temporarily store all our things in the garage and photos were taken that we should have been sent (which has not happened so far (3 days later), despite an interim question. We really did snorkeling we could see lots of fish up close and we were allowed to use the GoPro.

Absolutely fantastic experience! The guide was very helpful and friendly. I was scared to go to snorkelling in the water but he encouraged me and helped me in and stayed with me until I was comfortable. Without him I would have not seen the beauty of Garjau reserve and all widelife it homes

This tour was such a nice experience. I love water activities, and kayaking was exciting, even though this was the first time for me. Our guide was nice, explained both kayaking and some history of Madeira. We were snorkeling near Garajau, and that was the top for me! Crystal clear water, a lot of fish - including some nice, colorful fish. I definetely recommend this tour.
