Fabulous experience. It was cancelled the first time we turned up due to issues with wind levels/motor temp which was slightly frustrating as it was a bit of a trip for us from where we were staying, taxi costs etc. When we turned up the 2nd time all went smoothly and without issue. Brilliant experience seeing the sights over the cliffs and beach. Thank you

Fantastic experience, fabulous, friendly crew who really looked after us and our safety on board. We throughly enjoyed this trip and would definitely recommend. We will definitely do this trip again the next time we are in Vilamoura. The sunset alone was incredible.

A definite must do in Villamoura, very chilled, wonderful host, drinks and snacks on board and stunning views of the sunset & moon! Delivered back to the marina just in time to enjoy dinner & drinks for the rest of the evening!

We had a great trip. Nice staff and excellent bbq with great food! The whole day was well executed with a good selection of beverages on board.
