The boat was great, the skipper excellent! 2 of our party are leisure sailors and 'David' (Skipper) encouraged them no helm, crew and gave some great... More

We really enjoyed the whole experience despite having not much wind that day. David, our skipper, was very informative and could describe most of the birds in French and English (We are... More

We tried out the beginners sailing course of 20 hours, which we split into 2 full days (8 hours each) and one half day (4 hours). Despite not much wind (in the mornings) we had three great days, with our instructor David being very informative not only about sailing but also about the Ria Formosa in general. It was good...

Our lovely guide Fernando delivered an educational tour on the local bird and marine life. We stopped on a sand bank for a rest and a little swim. We... More
