Full description
Sail for 3 hours around the Algarve Coast aboard an impressive schooner sailing boat and discover picturesque villages, beautiful beaches, and impressive rocky cliffs.   Depart from the Marina of Vilamoura and head west where you can see the extensive beach of Falésia, followed by the fishing village of Olhos d'Agua (eyes of the water). Continuing your journey, the boat slips through the water past all the tiny beaches with their red sand cliffs. Sail past Albufeira, which was a fishing village but now is a vibrant tourist location. Admire the steep cliffs of São Rafael and stunning rock formations. In good sea conditions there is a stop for a swim in the ocean and a visit to one of the sea caves. Feel the splash of the waves and the wind in the sails as the ship start turning around near Galé. Get a chance to help with the hoisting of the sails or assist the captain at the helm. With luck, spot dolphins swimming alongside the boat.

The boat was great. The crew was very friendly and attentive. The tour was very complete. We saw the caves in a boat and we bathed in the high seas. Highly recommended. It also made us a very good day because it was cloudy. It's 3 hours and at 3 it would probably be very hot another day

This was a fabulous boat trip. The crew were super helpful informative and ensured all passengers were safe and well looked after. It was great value for money too. As we sailed around the coastline crew members told us about the places we saw and some of the history. We stopped for a visit to the caves and again the crew were brilliant helping everyone in and out of the little boats into the caves. We also stopped to allow people to swim in the sea - again the crew were brilliant helping people as needed. There was a well stocked bar on board and all drinks were really reasonably priced. You were also allowed to bring your own refreshments on board too. It was the highlight of our holiday.

Just what we needed! This was a nice relaxing boat trip and an overall lovely experience. Unfortunately it was pretty windy, so we were unable to get too close to the caves to stop for a swim but we enjoyed it just the same. The boat was comfy, the staff were really friendly & informative and the scenery beautiful. It was really good value for money and we would definitely do it again
