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!

Beautiful views, the beach for the bbq was lovely and all the staff were friendly and very attentive to everyone on board. If you aren’t great with mobility then you would maybe struggle to get on and off the boat that takes you to the beach however the staff make sure to assist everyone who chooses not to swim to the beach on and off the boat. Would recommend this trip and company!

A experiência é muito boa , sem dúvida das melhores que já tivemos. Super pontuais e tratamento fantástico. Apenas esperávamos mais diversificação na comida. As paisagens são lindas e é um bom passeio e momento para se passar o dia, ainda melhor se estiver bom tempo.

We had the best time! The catamaran crew were so fun and friendly- the captain and even let my 4yo son steer for a bit! We got amazing pictures and had a wonderful Portuguese BBQ on the beach. I highly recommend this trip to anyone who is interested in seeing the caves and loves the sea. 10/10!!
