Learning to Stand up Paddle in Sesimbra is one of the best activities you can do while visiting the Lisbon area. Leave the city behind for the day and join Mana Kai Divers on the beautiful beaches of Arrabida Nature Park.

Let us show you why Stand-up Paddle Boarding is the fastest growing board sport in the world. The diversity of applications or uses, combined with the “ease of use” makes it available to all sizes and ages., Many consider it the “new golf” because much like golf you can paddle till your 90yrs old and still have a great time as well as get an excellent workout.

What kind of board you use does make a difference. That is why we use custom user-friendly rigid paddle boards from Kumu Boards. Designed to help you get the most out of your time on the water.

Unlike kayaking, with SUP you get a unique vantage point. Where you can see sometimes 30m underwater. I call this “Stand Up Snorkeling.”  You don’t have to get wet to see the fish and reef and Portinho da Arrabida gives you this opportunity most days! Just voted “Best Beach in Europe,” Praia dos Galapinhos which is right next to Portinho da Arrabida is just a 10-minute paddle away and is one of the stops on our SUP tour.

One of the things you will learn is that not everyone is built the same way. What works for one person may not work for the next. At Mana Kai Divers this is how we like to deliver our lesson and or tours. We realize everyone has different comfort/skill levels and we like to customize our guest’s experience, the important for us is that you enjoy your time at the most, and to assure this we focus on small groups and intimate tours.
We believe this is what sets Mana Kai Divers apart from the rest.
