    Sailing in Faro

    My boyfriend and I had a great tiem learning to sail with David, whose years of experience shone through. The boat was modern, well-maintained and a pleasure to learn on. Look forward to sailing again!

    One of the best things we did in Portugal

    The whole service was very good, the staff very easy to deal with. It was a very professional and well led organization. I did this with 3 friends. We had a very fun time and for most of us was the first time sailing (1 friend had done it before). The captain of the boat was very helpful in teaching us to sail. It was one of the best things we did in Portugal.
