    What to Expect
    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!

    The crew is amazing. But I think that they can make the barbeque menu a bit more exciting. I have exprienced better menus by other sail trip operators.

    Just a fantastic day all round. Saw so much of the coastline and so many beautiful caves and beaches. The boat does get busy and we had quite a few selfish foreign tourists on our trip which is no fault of the boat company. I...More
