Choose a morning or afternoon departure, and when the time comes, make your own way to the boat pier at Vilamoura Marina. Meet your friendly skipper, settle aboard your sleek, private boat, and listen to a safety briefing before you sail out of the marina.
Take in the views of Vilamoura’s whitewashed villas and buildings as you glide into the open Mediterranean, and soak in the cool sea breezes and sense of freedom and peace. Then, sail along the Algarva’s famously rugged coast, passing sandy beaches and coves framed by weathered sandstone cliffs and headlands.
Cruise further out to sea to look for pods of the bottlenose and common dolphins that frequent the area. Hear intriguing facts about these beautiful mammals, and enjoy the views as they swim in their natural habitat. Your skipper will get you to meet the dolphins while still respecting them, their habitat, and the wider environment.
After seeing the dolphins, head west along the shores to explore the sea caves and rock formations that characterize this scenic stretch of coast. Hear about the region’s marine life, history, and geography as you travel, courtesy of your skipper.
Glide in and around caves and grottoes, and circle picturesque rock pillars and sea stacks, capturing them on camera for your holiday album.
Your private 2-hour cruise ends when you step ashore back at Vilamoura.
