Sesimbra Harbour
All year

Kayaking is one of the best way to discover Sesimbra and its Nature Park and Maritime reserve. You will have fun with the whole family and friends while having a good exercise admiring unique landscapes.

Sesimbra by Kayak starts from BORK & Haliotis outdoor centre in Sesimbra Harbour, you will then paddle through the Bay of Sesimbra and go along the beautiful coast of Arrabida Nature Park and Luiz de Saldanha Maritime Reserve.
Your guide helps you find your way as you explore the cliffs, caves, and other geological wonders. You’ll have some time to relax, admire the crystal-clear waters, and enjoy a snack on Praia do Ribeiro do Cavalo, one of Portugal’s most beautiful beaches. Time for a rest and a photograph contest! You will then paddle back toward Sesimbra Harbour where the tour started.

“Sesimbra kayaking with BORK”
A friend and I spend our last day in Sesimbra kayaking with BORK tours. Our guide Joao Vilaca went above and beyond, a man who truly loves the natural environment and answered all our questions about the protected waters and areas around the Portuguese coastline. If you want to avoid tourist traps, and truly get to know and appreciate another country away from its cities and popular activities then this is an outing for you!
Cheers Joao and Annabelle!

“A new way to discover Portugal”
My friend and I booked Sesimbra Discovery by Kayak. Annabelle from Bork You was our instructor and she was great. She contacted me to explain the pick up details and from pick up to drop off it was an amazing experience. You can really tell how much she loves kayaking and enjoys sharing this passion with others. Having no previous kayaking experience, she explained the motions and techniques and paired me with a more experienced kayaker which I appreciated. We explored the coast line of Sesimbra and kayaked through caves and coves and even took some time to stop by Praia da Ribeira Do Cavalo, one of the most beautiful beaches I’ve ever seen. I would recommend this for kayakers of all experiences. You may be tired and a little sore, but it is absolutely worth it, and the views you get of Portugal are amazing.
