9. Arrábida Natural Park: Stand Up Paddle
Discover Stand Up Paddle and the Professor Luiz Saldanha Marine Park, inserted in Arrábida Natural Park, with a group of highly qualified specialists in Stand Up Paddle, and nature and adventure sports for over 30 years.
The bays of the Arrábida Natural Park are the perfect place to practice Stand Up Paddle. Enjoy a magical moment, surrounded by the wild nature of Praia dos Coelhos or the magnificent landscapes of the beaches of Galápos and Galapinhos, which, up to Praia da Figueirinha, form one of the most beautiful bays in Europe, between the picturesque village of Sesimbra and the city of Setúbal, less than an hour's drive from Lisbon.
In Stand Up Paddle you will start with a safety briefing and an introduction to your guide/instructor and Stand Up Paddle equipment. Then we start a learning and review session, during which you'll learn to maneuvre the canoe controllably, and, after departing towards the sea, you'll have the unique opportunity to stop at the famous Anicha Island for a snorkeling session (optional), where you can observe very closely all the marine life that surrounds it. Equipped with buoyancy aids and a paddle, you'll feel like an authentic explorer while navigating the crystal clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean, and exploring the mysterious caves and secret beaches along the coastal area between Portinho da Arrábida and Praia de Alpertuche. At the end of the canoeing experience, you will return to the starting point for a debriefing of the experience and share the highlights of the day.
Whether you are beginner or experienced, it is ideal to enjoy by yourself or in group, with your friends, family and/or partner, celebrate birthdays, bachelor(ettes), or school or corporate events, accessible to everyone.
Don't question yourself any longer and accept this challenge to discover Stand Up Paddle in the Prof. Luiz Saldanha Marine Park.
