We took the 'Exploring Rio Mira' trip, dropped off at Casa Branca by our extremely friendly and helpful guide to paddle back to Vila Nova de Milfontes.
The plan was to float with the tide, which worked perfectly, except the wind came up more than expected and whipped the longer reaches of the river into significant waves, making the paddle more fun but also far more challenging!
The scenery and wildlife are stunning, and the last stretch with views of the bridge and town with the ocean waves breaking into estuary at the end a fitting finale.
Even in calmer conditions it is a significant stretch, so don't take it on lightly, he does offer a shorter out-and-back option too, but it was well worth the effort for me and my 73-year-young Mum!

We spent a couple of hours kayaking on the Mira in Milfontes. Two double kayaks, adults in one, teenagers in other. It was great fun and very easy for complete novices to enjoy. The meeting point was on a river beach opposite the town. Carlos was there ahead of time to meet us. He explained clearly what to do and where to go. The equipment was all in good order and the life jackets were clean, with a good selection of sizes. The river is very beautiful and the trip was timed with the tide so it wasn't difficult to make progress. All in all great fun and good value.

Nice and pleasant guy who set us up with the kayak (2 persons), we could row up the river, tide and wind helped but still some work to keep the boat straight. Beautiful peaceful river, quiet, limited number of people and didn't encounter a single boat. Same guy picked us up with a van and drove us back to the starting point where we left our car.

My husband and I rented a double kayak from Carlos to ride on Rio Mira for 12km, which took 2 hours 10 mins. It was a very peaceful and enjoyable ride because there was no other kayaks riding at the same time -- in the early afternoon. It was not as easy as we thought as the current kept pushing us toward the left bank of the river.

The kayak and the paddles were in good condition. Carlos are helpful, responsive and flexible. He gave us big and thick towels and water after the trip and gave us a ride back to our car. The towels are new and clean.
