Prepare your mind and body for a day full of action and adventure as we embark on a journey around Ponta de São Lourenço. On land and in the sea, our knowledgeable nature guide takes you to explore this protected area located on the eastern tip of Madeira.
The tour starts at 9:30 a.m. from our headquarters, located at Quinta do Lorde Resort – Hotel – Marina, in the heart of Ponta de São Lourenço.
The one-hour paddling session begins in the calm waters of our bay, just a few steps from the meeting point. Before departing, your guide briefly goes over the journey’s itinerary, emphasizing aspects such as trip planning, weather forecast, and equipment. Then it’s time to begin exploring, moving through the curves of the coast and along beautiful landscapes, caves, and hidden spots of the island.
The paddling ends in a small beach reachable only by sea. From this point, we start our one-hour hike around Ponta de São Lourenço. Colorful cliffs, volcanic rock formations, and panoramic views of the Atlantic compose the beautiful scenery of this protected area. As the terrain is rocky, make sure you have good hiking shoes.
After this enchanting exploration, it is snorkeling time. For the next hour, you have the chance to discover local marine life. You may spot animals such as octopuses, cuttlefish, barracudas, stingrays, eagle rays, and moray eels from an extraordinary perspective.
Once you are done with snorkeling, it is time for a calm return to the shore and the last view of Ponta de São Lourenço.
Blue ocean, sun, waves, rocks, sea animals, wind, caves… This tour includes everything one needs to have an unforgettable day in Madeira.
We enjoyed Kayaking, Hiking, and Snorkeling Madeira from the beginning to the end! Everything was well organized and prepared. Our guide was very nice and made us feel relaxed and safe at all times. We would definitely book another activity through OutdoorVisit in the future!
