We are just back from that awesome trip! Really enjoyed our time with the incredible 2 person crew! :) They are taking care of really everything. The boat is nice and the number of people is limited to 12 osx

The trip was fantastic. The crew is super friendly and put us at ease. All of this, accompanied by appetizers and a swim in the sea, make this trip memorable. I recommend.

Very nice tour along the coast west of Vilamoura. Opportunity to get closer to the cliffs with a small dinghy and a short swim is also possible. Recommendable.

Best value ever can’t believe how good it was for the money! Lovely well kept boat and really great crew. Excellent from start to finish. Many thanks

Great trip with a very nice skipper. Anytime again and highly recommended.
