Since we arrived at the AlgarExperience Check-in at the Albufeira Marina, we were very well looked after, an exceptional atmosphere, the truth is that I have really enjoyed it and I have had a pretty good experience, the crew members of the experience have been wonderful, very friendly and helpful and in more than 3 languages, English, French, Portuguese and Spanish. We started around 10:15 a.m. and they welcomed us with pastries and fruits for breakfast with a quite pleasant background music, as well as details and curiosities for each beach and rock formation. We also had an open bar with drinks, which also made the trip very pleasant, with (beers, water, white wine, red wine, sangria, soft drinks). We arrived at a fascinating beach for the whole family and those who wanted to go from the catamaran to the beach swimming had the possibility, the barbecue was incredible and the return a great atmosphere and with a lot of movement by everyone with very good music.

Full day program. Free food and drink all day long. Everything is well taken care of. The BBQ consists of meat, fish, salad and bread. More than enough. The beach activities are a bit disappointing. You can play beachball, soccer and there is 1 sub present. Staff are very friendly and helpful. On the return trip the music was turned up and it became a party boat. I definitely recommend this trip

Great day on the sea. We have started in Albufeira marina going towards Portimao (Lagos). We saw beautiful Algarve coast and lot's of caves. We have landed on lovely beach for a very nice BBQ, food was amazing. On the boat plenty of food too (sandwiches, fruits etc) and drinks (all you can drink sangria!). Guide spoke at least 4 languages. All staff was very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended experience.
