Full Day of Surfing in Aljezur:

Spot 1: Monte Clérigo – It’s a beach located in Aljezur, with very consistent conditions for surfing, about 150 days year. The wave direction is left to right and a background with power and the wind is offshore. This spot is ideal for experienced surfers and in the weekend is usually a little crowd.

Spot 2: Arrifana Reef - Arrifana is very popular in the Portuguese surfing community. When the waves are good it is always crowded because of the many Surf Schools and beginners, so it is very important to respect priorities in the water. A crescent-shaped beach protected by a large cliff. This is probably the best known wave of Aljezur. It gets a big swell and is sheltered from all winds except the west wind. When the sea is big the “Arrifana right-hander” is a classic, suited for experienced surfers. At high tide the wave is softer and at low tide, drier and faster.

Spot 3: Amado – Amado Beach has several Surf Schools and many surfers of all nationalities during the summer. Wave quality varies considerably according to the deposition of sand and the quality of the sea bottom. Generally very consistent with right and lefthanders. The peaks nearer the car park have a larger crowd. To reach the beach take the dirt track along the sea from Bordeira beach.

Dolphins Watching - Boat trip 

Sagres is a place that provides unique moments in the presence of dolphins, whales and sharks. During all year the small cetacean species observed more often is the Common Dolphin (Delphinus delphis), the Bottlenose Dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) and the Harbour Porpoise (Phocoena phocoena). Others species possible to be sighted such as Risso's Dolphin (Grampus griseus), Striped Dolphin (Stenella coeruleoalba) and Orca (Orcinus orca). Occasionally we see the whales on their migratory route in which the most frequent species and whose increased sightings in 2012 were the Minke Whale (Balaenoptera acutorostrata) and the Fin Whale (Balaenoptera physalus). The marine life in the coast of Sagres offers a huge diversity of species, such as: Sun Fish (Mola mola), Hammerhead Shark (Sphyrna spp), Blue Shark (Prionace glauca), Basking Shark (Cetorhinus maximus), the Loggerhead Turtle (Caretta caretta) and various pelagic fish.

Our goal is to show you the cetaceans in their natural habitat in a safe and educational manner, guided by a professional and experienced team. Our marine biologists provide you a briefing before each departure and during the trip share curiosities and their knowledge of the species observed. Live this unique experience of being "Biologist for a Day" in search of dolphins off the coast of Sagres and participate in the scientific data for the Project for the Conservation and Preservation of Cetacean developed by AIMM - Association for Research of the Marine Environment, which we are partners.
