Full description
Come join this BBQ cruise on the catamaran MARA for a perfect full-day trip!   Departing from the Albufeira Marina, you’ll start by cruising westward along the coastline of the south of Portugal. The skipper and crew will give you information about the places and sights that you pass by – in particular, you’ll get a great view of the rock formations and caves of the areas of Benagil, Galé and Carvoeiro.   As you sail, your BBQ will be prepared by the crew on board with the freshest food. Served on a beach, savor your choice of fresh fish, meat, sausages, Algarvian salad, chips, bread, and seasonal fruit. Spend some time on the beach for a swim and other beach activities before getting back on the boat to head back. Before you return to the marina, you’ll be served a delicious glass of champagne to toast the end of a full, relaxing day on the water!

Had a wonderful time on this day trip with a few girlfriends on the 8th September. The hosts on the catamaran were just so friendly and fun. They made us feel really comfortable and looked after us all day. The onmy suggestion I would make is to get a better vegetarian option but the trip was great and luckily, I brought some provisions with me, just in case. Thank you soo much.

Fantastic day with a great crew!

We had the best time on the boat! We were able to go into the caves, which we were not expecting due to the boat size, so it was very exciting. The crew was very welcoming, took time to get to know everyone, and made sure to frequently check in if anything was needed. Joao and Pedro were the best!! I'd highly recommend this activity to anyone!

The crew were very friendly, the cave views were lovely and there was plenty of food and drink at the beach bbq. Overall an excellent trip and I would recommend it highly. Just remember to use lots of sun screen as the sea breeze can mask how hot the sun is!
