Who we are?

Hey, I am Fabio Mariano, the founder of South Kayaks. I come from Sagres in Vila do Bispo municipality located at “the end of the world” in south-western part of Algarve in Portugal. I inherited the passion for the ocean from my father who is a professional fisherman. Since I was a kid, I have had a very strong connection with the sea. I participated in many national competitions in bodyboard and managed to become champion of Portugal. Besides I am a professional fisherman and do spearfishing

I created the company in order to share with you over 25 years of my ocean experience. My objective is to show you the best of Costa Vincentina in the Sagres area by kayak. With me you will embark on an unforgettable adventure closely discovering amazing natural rock formations and caves on the ocean.

Come and explore the ocean by kayak with me!

praia da ingrina

Praia da Ingrina is a calm and less touristy but absolutely stunning, paradise-looking beach in the area of Vila do Bispo, Algarve.  You get there from Raposeira village passing by extensive fields and meadows.
 It is located in a small bay in between of Praia do Zavial on one side and Praia do Barranco on the other. The beach is shaped in the form of a seashell surrounded by rocks and pebbles. Its beautiful sand, calm water and fresh food served by a local restaurant attract entire families with kids and local population.

Praia da Ingrina is also a great place for water sport fans. Clear and transparent ocean reveals an amazing underwater paradise with rock formations and sea life. It is a great spot for scuba diverssnorkel fansocean kayaking or stand up paddling enthusiasts.  Check how we can show you the best of Ingrina beach below.

Ocean kayaking Sagres review

One of the best exeperience in my life. Amazing views. Very interesting stories telled by guide. Breathtaking views. I highly recommend.
We started at Ingrina Beach. We visited few caves, kayaked around stones and got into small tunnels. We saw star fishes, muscles growing on the walls of caves and other sea plants. The guide had a lot of cool stories to tell. I loved the Purple Cave the most. It was stunning. Thanks Fabio for the great experience!
Fabio is a real “sea man” : he knows very well the environment and the history of these amazing coasts. He is also very kind and smart: I recommend him at 100%
Amazing!! We spent a fantastic day with Fabio. You won't find a better guide in the area. Very recommended for both beginners and advanced users (like us). Luckily, we didn't rent a kayak on our own (as we usually do) and we contacted Fabio for the tour. We spent a really nice day with him. Really worth it!!!
