The Santa Bernarda ia a wooden hulled two masted ship with a raised aft and fore-deck marketed as the "pirate ship". We booked a full day voyage for two adults and two children for €180. We cruised up the coast past cave-holed cliffs and moored off an isolated beach accessible only by the towed launches in which we were taken on a tour into the nearby caves before being dropped at the beach for a couple of hours relaxation and a terrific barbecue (in the price) of piri-piri chicken, spare ribs, skewered meat and vegs, salads and fruits with unlimited wine and soft drinks.
Afterwards the ship cruised back west past Portimao and returned to harbour under sail with engines cut.
A real antidote to lazy pool days and water parks!
Captain Bernard (is that really his name?) strikes a good balance between jovial entertainment and serious care for his passengers' comfort and safety.
