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.

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

Pleasant experience, without risks, attentive crew, with some explanation about the places we saw. All in all, it lacked a bit of spark ... maybe some more explanation, more interaction with the attendees, a glass of cava on the way back (when you go sailing ...)

The tour was very pleasant and the staff very attentive. The boat is very beautiful and the landscapes are very impressive.
