Madeira: Garajau Nature Reserve Kayak and Snorkel Tour

1. Madeira: Garajau Nature Reserve Kayak and Snorkel Tour

Start the day at the harbor 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 toward Lazareto. Stop for a break on the beautiful pebble beach and take in the views of the surrounding rock features from times gone by. Afterward, 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.

Really good fun and helpful guide Pedro. The kayaking wasn't too exertive and after that we were taken to a lovely spot for snorkeling with lots of fish. The whole thing is basically taking place along the city coast, which is convenient for those who stay here.

We really enjoyed the trip with our guide Pedro! Me and my boyfriend booked the tour very last minute and it turned out that it is just the two of us and our guide. Both the kayaking and the snorkelling were lots of fun. Definitely recommend it :)

We didn't get to see fanal forest due to the weather being too rough, that said the whole tour was excellent and our guide was very friendly and informative.

Absolutely Amazing, loved every.minute, lovely guide who was fun and helpful, lots of local knowledge. really enjoyed the kayaking!!!!!! Obrigada!!!!!!
