Amazing day at sea
Aug 2020
Our group hired the catamaran for a private boat tour at Ria Formosa. Six adults and four kids and we all had an amazing time. The catamaran was beautiful and spacious. Crew (João and Maria) was fantastic! It was very windy that day, but we still we had a wonderful time. So much so that we ended extending our trip. We stopped at Ilha Deserta and Ilha da Culatra. Highly recommend.

Dear Mariana, Family and Friends, As you already know, even in a windy day, the Ria Formosa is wonderful and our tour is amazing, but it is our team that really makes us shine: they will always go above and beyond to make all of our clients as happy as you. We are glad that you had such a great experience with us! Thank you for your lovely comments, and we can't wait to welcome you back soon. Best winds iSea Yachting Team

Favorite Activity in the Algarve
Aug 2019 • Couples
We had such a great time all around, absolutely no complaints. We loved the boat itself but what really made the experience so great was that the skipper and hostess were wonderful. Extremely friendly, welcoming and accommodating. They will tailor the experience to you for whatever activity or sights you would like to see or do. We had beautiful weather and just wanted to get out to the open water and sail, and hopefully see some dolphins, and their genuine excitement really made it apparent that they love their job, and that always makes an experience better. If we ever get the opportunity we will absolutely go again, and the next time we will book a longer trip. Thank you all very much.

Chris and Samantha, So happy to get a review like this. We really love our work and we do it with great pleasure. When customers can feel how special they are to us, it is well worth it! As we talked on the boat, we love it when our clients really want to sail - with sails up - so the afternoon with you was so special that we didn't want the day ends. We are waiting for you to come back for a long-term charter with lots of downwind! Thanks to give your time to us and for the amazing words. Best winds ISea Charter Team

Such a memorable day
Wow, what a fabulous day. We, a family of 7, took a catamaran out for the day with Paul and Maria at the helm looking after us all and taking care of our every need. We brought a picnic which Maria served to us, beautifully and made it super special. The snorkelling, jumping off the boat, lying on the deck on super comfy beanbag sun beds, facilities and flexibility in choosing our experiences, made for a truly special and personalised trip that we hope to repeat next year. Perhaps extending it!

Thank you, thank you, thank you, you’re hard work and fabulous boat, made our holiday!

Fabulous day
Jul 2019 • Family
We did a half day afternoon private catamaran charter with Isea and had a fantastic time. The captain and Maria the crew were fantastic hosts and looked after us really well. We weren’t entirely sure what to expect but it surpassed our expectations to the point we booked a second full day charter. Again we had a great time. The children (5 of them aged from 8-12) loved it and spent hours jumping off the boat, swimming and paddle boarding. Bruno and Maria looked after us really well- we provided our own drinks and food but Maria prepared and served everything tidying up after us all which was wonderful! We ate at Estaminé restaurant for lunch but if we did it again we think we would eat on the boat and not bother with the restaurant. The day culminated with a lovely sail across the Ria Formosa to Cultura island with more fun in the water for the children before we motored back to the marina. Excellent value for money compared with alternative charters that we looked at. The catamaran provided ample space for our group of 11 adults and children. It was without doubt the best day of the holiday and we would definitely do it again.

With our family of 5 we've enjoyed a day sailing, supping and swimming with the luxury Catamaran at the Ria Formosa Natural Park. Very relaxing!
Joao and Claudia are excellent hosts. After our (1/2 day) tour, they've made a reservation for us at a restaurant at Ilha do Farol; after our lunch, they've arranged that we got picked up by the rib to return to Faro.
Thanks a lot Inez, Claudia, Joao and Joao for such a great day. Hope to see you next year, Andrea and family

Always a great experience
Apr 2019 • Friends
We already booked the 2nd time and it was just amazing again. The Catamaran is a dream! The crew is super friendly, professional and offer great hospitality. We will sail definitely again. This time we did a 3 h trip with a lunch at Ilha Deserta, that is highly recommended. Thank you Bruno, Ines and Maria. See you soon again.
