Happy clients

Rock&Reel’s tide pool safari is a must-do when you come to Portugal’s Aljezur area! Marzena and Cristian create an unforgettable experience by sharing their wealth of knowledge about ocean animals and the coastal region. Whether you’re young or old, you’ll learn something amazing and get to observe a variety of creatures up close. It’s super educational and fun at the same time!

We loved the island fishing trip with Marzena and Cristian at Rock&Reel! It was an adventurous experience that brought our senses alive: geared up in wetsuits, water shoes, and with a boogie board in hand, we lunged into the ocean and swam 200m to a rocky outcrop where Marzena and Cristian demonstrated and taught us about the tackle and gear. We fished all day and even caught some fish! It was extremely gratifying to have such fresh and self-caught dinner!

Fun. Sustainable. Inspiring. Educational. Adventurous.

Fun: We love to be outdoors, being active, walking by the tide pools, trekking by the cliff, or swimming to the fishing spot. Let’s get salty and enjoy ourselves.

Sustainable: The sea has taught us so much about the life cycle. Let’s get closer to the food that we eat and make conscious choices.

Inspiring: It’s in our own blood, to walk the road less travelled. Let us refresh your day.

Educational: We feel that it is our duty to share what nature has taught us and because learning needs to be fun, allow us to make you smile in the process.

Adventurous: The sea opened up a playground for us. Let’s get wild.
