Marco Melo, the only canyoning guide on Flores Island, takes you to one of many different canyons depending on your interest and experience. In my case we went to Cabo Canyon, a magical place with lush vegetation, beautiful views and 4 impressive waterfalls between 37 and 50 meters height (as well as various smaller falls, slides, and pools). Since this... More

Most fun experience we've had for ages! Marco is a great guide and even though my partner was nervous at the beginning she was eager to abseil the last waterfall! Particularly enjoyed the scenery and the natural water slides. Thanks!

Marco met us promptly at 9AM with the weather strong winds and rain. He kindly offered to cancel the tour if we wanted because of the weather. We decided to proceed since this was our only full day on Flores. The weather foiled his best attempts to show us scenery on the eastern coast but he made up for this... More

Doing Canyoning in Flores was amazing! The waterfalls, surround by green lush vegetation and the jumps into fresh lagoons along the way was just unforgettable. Btw, we also had a lot of fun with our guide Marco and nice photos and videos to remember those moments.

Our first canyoning experience and we enjoyed every minute of it. Marco does well at balancing fun and safety. We felt safe rappelling down waterfalls and sliding down streams even though we have never done so before in our lives. Equipment are well-maintained and he even emails you photos few days after. We will gladly go back for another adventure... More

We spent 3 days on Flores Island. When we first met, he was running down from the hill in rubber boots .... next day he took us to Corvo, he was talking about “his island”, life of locals, their history and present days. We got to know a very nice guy, with good sense of humour. And the third day?... More

Marco is absolutely fantastic as a guide. He strikes the perfect balance between being safety conscious and letting you get on with things to make for a fantastic experience. The canyon is perfect, as the difficulty builds as you move downstream. All in all a superb experience which I cannot recommend highly enough.

It was my first time canyoning and Marco was a fantastic guide. He was very knowledgable about the area and the exercise. The excursion was full of laughter and jokes. I will certainly canyon again and when I return to the Azores will repeat this trip with Marco. Definitely a great way to see the inner and true beauty of... More

Marco is a great guide. He will guide you down the river with a smile on the face. Professional and with brand new equipment will make you discover the insides of a magnificent island with stunning nature, waterfalls, tobogans and much more! It is a must do if you go to the Azores.
