Sea Kayaking in the Azores

Kayak or stand up paddle board on the crater lakes of Sao Miguel or take to the sea around Terceira to see the Azores from a different perspective.

Our kayaking trips visit the 2 main crater lakes on Sao Miguel; Furnas and Sete Cidades. You’ll be enveloped by the volcanic landscape on the calm waters and marvel at the lush vegetation reaching all the way up to the crater rim. Just beware of the parts of the lake that still boil!

Terceira is an emerging sea kayaking Azores destination. We have 6 sea kayaks based in Praia da Vitoria on the south east coast of the island. They are a highly regarded Portuguese brand, NELO, and the model is called ‘The Azores’. Chosen not because of the their name(!) but because they are easy to manoeuvre and very stable making them ideal for beginners.

The Azores

Composed of nine volcanic islands situated in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean, this Portuguese archipelago is one of the few unspoilt paradises on the planet.

Straddling the mid-Atlantic ridge around 950 miles west of Lisbon lies the stunning Azores archipelago. Often described as the tips of the lost continent of Atlantis, the islands maintain an Old World charm that is difficult to find almost anywhere else in Europe.

This makes the Azores a great place for kayaking with an amazing volcanic coastline and quiet ports as well as crater lakes which give you a completely different perspective on being inside a volcano!
Half and full day trips are available on Terceira and Sao Miguel although longer journeys can also be organised.
