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.
