What you'll do

We will meet in the morning at Praia do Creiro or at one of our secret cove locations in Arrabida Nature Park,
After a trip outline, SUP history, and a lesson we will put our SUP’s in the water at a selected beach (depending on weather & tide) and the Adventure begins.

Along our trip, we will encounter sea caves used by the Romans to store wine in and many fish that you will be able to see through the crystal waters.
We will make our way to Anixa Island where we will change your Instagram profile picture with some amazing pictures with the GoPro and capture your good times. We will email the pics and video to you ;)
Then it is time to paddle to the white-hot sands of what has been Voted #1 Beach in Europe.
Enjoying this paradise for a while we will have a small picnic, water, and snorkeling if you choose. We can also take this time to answer any questions about SUP or work on some advanced techniques.
After paddling back, we always recommend that our guests pack for a day at the beach after the tour. Because in our experience... After people discover the beauty of the Nature Park, they never want to leave. We look forward to sharing this amazing experience with you.
Aloha :)

Meet your host, Mana Kai B&B | Nate & Joana

  • Identity verified
Aloha, I am Nate and I love two things, meeting new people & teaching Paddle Boarding (SUP) to the world! I have had the pleasure of operating SUP schools around the world for two decades. It's my passion!
Coming from Hawaii & Living in Portugal for the last few years I have found a new home for this passion, in the hidden gem that is Arrabida Nature Park.
It is my goal to teach you everything there is to know about SUP our day together. Gaining the confidence to go anywhere in the world and rent a board on your next holiday.
The bonus is you also get to learn this new sport in one of the most beautiful places I have ever had the privilege to paddle. The Turquoise water of Arrabida can make you feel like you are in the tropics on any given day.

*We use Real SUP's, not inflatables.
*transportation can be arranged
