SAILING CAMPS

The Best Easter and Summer Camps in Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia

Children aged 5 to 15 years old will enjoy fun-filled weeks at sea, with wind, sun, and sailing.

We think sailing is more than just a sport; it’s a life-changing activity that fosters personal development and the development of important skills. With the aid of a skilled team of monitors who share our passion for the sea and this sport, we customize our instruction to each child’s age and level of experience.

Our sailing camps are the perfect program if you’re looking for an activity for your kids during the school break!

The most entertaining camp over the Easter break, where kids can learn to sail in a laid-back setting. During a whole sailing week, they will sail in different boats with kids that are about the same age and skill level.

2. Exploration of the Douro River aboard a variety of boats that are appropriate for teaching and training young sailors.
3. Nautical activities and games to promote teamwork.

5. The day is divided into two shifts for water outings - morning and afternoon - with lunchtime spent on land.

LEARN ABOUT THE BOATS THEY’LL BE SAILING

WHERE WILL THEY SAIL?

Our sailors learn to sail in a protected sailing area free from strong winds, currents, and waves – in the natural reserve of the Douro estuary. Progression in sailors’ skills also signifies an expansion of the sailing area, gradually moving from the natural reserve to the rest of the Douro River and extending to the sea, along the coastal areas of Porto, Matosinhos, and Vila Nova de Gaia, near the Douro River entrance.

WHY CHOOSE BBDOURO?

We at BBDouro are dedicated to revolutionizing how kids are introduced to sailing in Portugal. Our Sailing Camps stands out for providing a healthy and comfortable environment for children to learn to sail.

We do more than just teach sailing!

With the assistance of our experienced and committed instructors, we have been sharing our love of this sport and the sea for 11 years. We allow each student to experience the activity in their own way and promote the value of sustainability and environmental care, with frequent beach cleanup events.

Our sailing camps are increasingly bringing together kids of various ages and countries, offering days packed with sports and outdoor activities, always with the committed support of qualified instructors.
