What to expect
  • Half-Day Cruise with Caves: Climb aboard the Leãozinho for a half-day cruise leaving from the Albufeira Marina in the morning. Set your sails westward and head into the Atlantic towards the sandy shores of San Rafael, Castelo, and Praia da Gale. Stare out towards the majestic cliffs and see the rock chapel Senhora da Rocha perched over the sea. Shortly after passing the salty fisherman at Armacao de Pera, arrive at the stunning beach and sapphire blue waters of Praia de Benagil.  Here, you have the option to explore the enormous sea cave, indulge in a warm swim in the crystal clear Atlantic, or have a stab at fishing. Satiate your thirst at the onboard Pirate Bar, where you can sip on a cool and refreshing beverage (beer, soft drinks and water) and relish the sparkling blue sea. As you motor back to Albufeira, stay alert for dolphins whose fins are often seen racing along the ship. Captain Hook Cruise: Hop into your Leãozinho for a Captain Hook cruise leaving from the Albufeira Marina in the early afternoon. Leave the marina and navigate westward towards the sandy shores of San Rafael, Castelo and Praia da Gale. Along the way gaze at the rocky bluffs and keep your eyes peeled for jubilant dolphins swimming and playing. A short while later the ship will anchor. Here, slip off your sandals and jump into the warm Atlantic for a refreshing swim. Then, grab a towel and relax as the boat returns to Albufeira.

Private hire pirate ship cruise, beaches, caves and BBQ
Aug 2021
We privately hired the legendary 85 year old 'Leaozinho' pirate ship with another family and had such a wonderful time. The crew were very friendly, great fun and looked after us all extremely well. As a private hire we had choice which beaches and caves we visited and they did not disappoint. A great BBQ on the beach was prepared and served and we just couldn't eat all the lovely food provided; fresh sardines, sausages, turkey steaks, delicious homemade salads and fresh watermelon, with lots of drinks to quench your thirst. Our five children aged from 6 to 17 years really enjoyed the trip and loved diving off the boat and having fun on the deserted beaches. We played 'Mamma Mia 'tunes on the boat and had a truly unforgettable day. Thank you to the amazing crew for making our day so special and we cannot recommend privately hiring this boat enough, you will have an amazing time!!

Amazing and unforgettable day at the beach.
Aug 2020 • Family
It was an awesome experience and I strongly believe this is the best way to see one of the most amazing beaches in the world avoiding the usual crowds you normally see in the nice beaches of Algarve. The entire beach all for the group of the tour. In top of that you have great bbq with sausages, grilled chicken, fish, salad and drinks.
Is worth every single Euro!

Day trip to Remember
Oct 2019 • Couples
From start to finish we had a lovely time, their is nothing like sailing along in a proper wooden sailing boat with little port holes for the full effect. The seating was comfortable and the staff were courteous and gave information along the coast of different points of interest along the way. We got very close to the caves and really enjoyed the excitement of being so close in a big boat. The trip along the coast took all morning, then we were dropped of on a lovely beach, either by diving and swimming or being transported by the dinghy. The beach was accessed by boat only so it felt special. We had sun shades waiting for us if needed, the cove was cosy and sandy. Within a short space of time the BBQ was ready, an assortment of meats with bread and mixed salad, which went down very well with the cold larger. To finish a refreshing piece of melon. We arrived back at harbour on time at four having left at 10. I would say that it was very much worth the money. Their are not many trips / excursions that have so much going for them, for such a wonderful day and price. Enjoy !!.

Not too bad.
The staff were politw, the boat was safe and clean. The trip.was quick and fun. My boyfirend enjoyed getting a chancs to swim in the sea. And the kids played dress up it was so cute. However i did feel there wasnt much of a tour. I expected some information about the sea, caves, local beachesor pirates and there wasn't much. We chose the pirate boat cause we thought it would be fun but it was a little bit boring. However it was nice trip and if you havd little kids it is nice to do and not bad value for €22.
