Rent a Kayak in Ria Formosa

Love kayaking? Love exploring gorgeous natural environments packed with fascinating birdlife? Then you’ll love Lands’ Faro kayak rental service. At Lands, we have an easy-to-book kayak rental service in Ria Formosa Nature Park. This is perfect for visitors looking for ways to experience nature while embarking on a fun-filled adventure. You can hire kayaks to paddle through the Algarve’s famed blue waters or you can come with us on our Ria Formosa Kayaking Tour from Faro.

Rent a kayak from Faro to paddle around the tranquil waters of Ria Formosa. This beautiful protected lagoon is best seen from the water, explored at your own pace and in your own time. Gather your family and friends and spend a good time out paddling along the channels of the Ria Formosa towards the islands and beaches of this beautiful nature park.

Kayak Faro – More Information

Our Rotomod sit-on-top kayaks are stable, safe, comfortable, and easy to use, making them the perfect way for you to explore the waters of the Algarve. With single and double kayaks available for hire, this is a safe, comfortable, and exciting way to have an adventure in the Ria Formosa Nature Park.

Choose from a full-day, half-day, or 2.5-hour rental period. You don’t need any experience to get the most out of your very own kayaking adventure. If you choose a 2.5-hours hire, you have time to explore the lagoon of Ria Formosa and have a break in one of its islets. This shorter rental period is our recommended option for families with young children.

Hiring a kayak for a half-day or full-day will give you time to explore the lagoon, perhaps visiting one of the islands of Ria Formosa. Here you can enjoy a well-deserved rest close to where the lagoon meets the sea. Have a rest, a picnic or swim in crystalline waters and enjoy the clear blue skies in one of Portugal’s sunniest regions. 

We want you to have a great time out kayaking. Before your kayak rental, our team will provide a map and a good briefing about suggested routes you can take to make the most of your rental period. Our team might also recommend other itineraries, different departure times or rental periods according to the weather conditions and weather forecast, the tides, the winds, and the currents. You can book today, but if you have any questions ahead of time, please feel free to reach out.
