Seasonal Jobs | SUP & Coasteering Instructor
Coastline Algarve needs Seasonal Stand Up Paddle and Coasteer Assistant Instructor for Summer 2023
We’re based in Raposeira, Algarve on the Costa Vicentina Natural Park. And we operate mainly on the South coast between Sagres and Lagos.
Our Seasonal Staff are normally employed from June until September (4 months). Possibility of starting in May and working until October.
We provide Accommodation in Raposeira, 5 min drive from both South and West coasts.
To be a SUP and Coasteering Assistant Instructor we are looking for someone who is really confortable in the sea and around rocks/cliffs to help the leading instructor.
Preferable qualifications and experience:
ASI SUP Instructor Level 2
Good paddling (standing, prone) and swimming fitness level
Other qualifications and experience will be considered:
Good experience as SUP/kayak Guide in coastal areas
Stand Up Paddle competition Athlete
Good experience in Coasteering or Canyoning
Surf Instructor certificate
Good experience in Deep Water Solo Climbing
A typical day starts with the SUP Caves Tour and ends with our Coasteering session: for each activity we'll be getting equipment ready, meeting clients, driving to the beach, teaching and guiding the tour and then cleaning/storing equipment at base.
Other tasks when there's no tours include maintenance and cleaning of the equipment, garage and vans.
We also offer training opportunities - we are an Academy of Surfing Instructors (ASI) certified Training Center in Portugal - and the chance to be part of a small, but strong team that loves what they do.
The diversity of work we do is amazing. We work mostly with small or large groups of friends looking for adventure, couples on active holidays, individuals backpacking through Europe, stag and hen groups, families with kids, the odd TV show or commercial shooting… We operate on a variety of locations around the beautiful coastline, depending on the day's conditions and the type of tour.
The Algarve (mainly Vila do Bispo (Sagres) area) offers superb opportunities for watersports and nature adventures; we have some of the best Stand-up Paddling, Surfing, Climbing, Sea Kayaking, Coasteering, Kite Surfing, Windsurfing, BTT, Walking and Fishing in Europe.
It is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the World, where there's always new people to meet and plenty of entertainment, while maintaining its local costumes, History and Coastal Nature Reserve status.
