KAYAKING | Vila Franca do Campo
For us, a kayaking excursion along the coast of São Miguel is the best way to combine good physical training with the unique opportunity to explore and discover some of the most beautiful hidden gems on the island (high cliffs, bays, small caves, unknown sandy beaches, etc.).
- Family kayaks for a maximum of 2 adults and 2 children, stable and comfortable for beginners;
- Inclusion of an impermeable container (so you can take belongings that you consider essential);
- You don’t need previous experience, but you must feel comfortable at sea;
- Possibility of Pick-up and Drop-off from / to your place of accommodation – if respective option is chosen.
NOTE: The islet and the ocean area within, are protected due to it being a unique breeding ground for several marine bird species. Walking on the islet and/or swimming in the area may be restricted from the 16th October until mid June. Kayaking in the ocean is dependent on weather and sea conditions; the safety of our clients is of our outmost priority and this activity might be cancelled or rescheduled accordingly.

During this tour, you will kayak to and explore the emblematic Vila Franca do Campo Islet; In total, we will cover approximately 5 km, which normally lasts about 3 hours (depending on weather conditions and group skills). Upon arrival at the local marina, we will proceed with the material distribution and a quick safety briefing. Leaving the Marina, we will head to this epic islet where we will circumnavigate it; exploring its hidden caves, swim in the Atlantic Ocean and snorkel. With our local nature guide, we will kayak into the islet bay, relax on the beach within and venture on the islet for a better look of this Protected Landscape.
