Below are some of their adventures:
"In the morning, the sea is very calm, ideal conditions for an unforgettable caves trip. We start our trip in the historic harbor of Portimão. We follow the Rio Arade, passing the fishing village of Ferragudo and two medieval forts entering the Atlantic Ocean. With motor power we turn South-East, past the lighthouse of Ferragudo, the beach of Carneiros, the Roman tower and smugglers cave. Along the coastline of Carvoeiro with the rock formations of Algar Seco, Praia Vale de Centianes, up to the lighthouse of Alfanzina. Along the beaches of Benagil, Praia da Marinha and Armação de Pêra are the majority of the caves, including the largest and deepest caves of the Algarve. With our traditional cave boats, equipped with engine and life jackets, we go to explore at least 8 of these fascinating caves. Through narrow or wide openings we explore dark or colorful shimmering, Cathedral-like vaults."
SAILING + CAVES OF CARVOEIRO:
"We commence our sailing trip in the historical harbour of Portimão. Passing the fishermen’s village of Ferragudo with two medieval forts, we reach the Atlantic. At the lighthouse we set sail direction South–East, cruising alongside the cliffs to carvoeiro and the rock formations of Algar Seco. We show you the Smuggler’s cave, the deep cave of Alfanzina and the cape of Carvoeiro At Benagil we drop anchor to have a swim and with calm sea you visit the caves — the most spectacular Algarvian caves in the region between Portimão and Armação de Pêra. We will cruise back on the engine along the rocks and caves."
THE CAVES OF LAGOS:
"Our journey begins in the harbor of Portimão. In the Atlantic, we turn West towards Praia da Rocha, Praia do Vau, Praia de Alvor, Meia Praia and reach Lagos, starting point of Vasco da Gamas journeys of discovery. We drop anchor in calm sea, so you may take a dip in the clear waters and visit the caves with their bizarre rock formations of Ponta da Piedade."
DAY TRIP + BARBECUE ON THE BEACH:
"Experience a day full of adventures. We leave the Rio Arade and follow the coastline of Carvoeiro, lighthouse of Alfanzina to Benagil. We anchor the Caravelle, get on the cave boats and visit some of the most beautiful caves in the Algarve. We land on a beach that is only accessible by sea. Here, we serve a 3-course menu, including fresh grilled fish, chicken Piri Piri, meat kebabs, mixed salad, traditional bread and fruit for dessert, the meals are served on china dishes with silver cutlery. Enjoy chilled wines and soft drinks. Before lunch enjoy swimming, sunbathing and lounging. At about 14:30 hrs. we start boarding and navigate with engine power towards Alvor. On our way back to Portimão, enjoy the Caravelle under sail – like Columbus ‘ time. With a wave height of more than one meter, the barbecue lunch will take place in the Bay of Ferragudo.
