The Guide

My name is Rui Calado, I am portuguese and behind this website dedicated to sea kayak tours in my country.

I have been a very avid kayaker for over 30 years and I am a sea kayak guide, with extensive experience with white water, surf kayak, and sea kayak.

I've paddled the entire Portuguese coastline and also paddled more than 120 rivers in Europe, Asia and North and South America and on the sea on 3 Continents.

I have dedicated my life to kayaking in many facets including kayak design and construction.

I'm a BC Sea kayak Leader, a guide trough the Spanish Kayak Federation and I love to kayak :-)

We are a family-owned and operated business.
