An excellent trip. Plenty of time to explore Lagos. The trip back allowed time to see the caves, rugged coastline and a swim stop. Best of all, coming back under sail was hugely enjoyable. Friendly crew were knowledgeable and attentive throughout. Highly recommend this company.

A very enjoyable day out. Attractive, old fashioned sailing boat with 2 excellent and amusing guides who provided an entertaining and interesting commentary on the local sights. Also kindly tailored the trip to suit exactly what we wanted. Beautiful scenery, wonderful day out.

Amazing trip from Alvor to Lagos on Friday 13th October. Freddie & Pedro kept us entertained the whole time, they are quite the double-act. They certainly have some tales to tell, so laughter was guaranteed. We were a family party of 7, joined by 4...More

Lovely trips up or down the coast with explanations of sightings from a very knowledgeable crew. Freddie and Pedro were great hosts and very funny. Kathy and Lawrence from Maldon.

Sorry, I just saw your question. We are unable to go inside the caves as we have a mast, but we do get very close and you can see inside. Your son is classed as an adult in the Algarve I'm afraid and therefore the cost is... More

No doubt it as the sea was mainly calm. Sea sickness is a personal thing so it would depend on each individual. It's not something I can answer for everyone , but no one on our sailing did. Hope that helps.

There is a bus available but the best solution is to travel by taxi. Ask to be dropped off at the Ribeira restaurant in Alvor and we are located on the other side of the roundabout next to the walkway to the pontoon.
