Captain Piotr and Mate William were the most gracious hosts to my family during a half-day cruise. They were very attentive to the needs of us and especially our young children, letting them wear a pirate coat and hat and navigate the boat, providing snacks and drinks, and opportunities to swing off a rope and jump into the sea, or to just hop in for a swim. They made everything just right for us, and were funny and fun to chat with. We will definitely head out to sea with Alboran the next time we are here!

My friends and I was searching for perfect daytime activity for all of us (children also), and to enjoy something different. We found perfect individual daycharter from Puerto Banus. Our skipper Piotr was wonderfull, he speak 5 languages, have more than 20 years experience, and boat is clean, spacy and beautifull. We had a chance to see dolphins (you should hear kids excitement, and mine too), to enjoy snorkeling and marvelous view on Costa del Sol from the sea! Drinks and snack was included, so you only need too remember to bring towel and suncream. :) Next year, we plan to sail with Alboran Sail to Morocco or Gibraltar.

Having always wanted to try a boat trip with my 2 daughters, we finally did it with Piotr. Piotr, was v. welcoming, a great host and did his best to make the trip thoroughly enjoyable for my kids and I. We had a great time, I have no hesitation in recommending Piotr as a great host on the sea's for a family fun experience.

Wow, what an experience! This was only the best boat trip that I have ever been on, but my entire family marked it as the highlight of our week in Marbella! This is an absolute must do! From riding the Donut, to swimming in the water, the kids doing Tarzan swings off the boat, seeing dolphins, and enjoying a wonderful lunch at Nikki Beach, and even getting to Sail the boat, it was a truly memorable experience! We went in the morning and got to enjoy some calm water but got to experience real sailing in the afternoon when the winds picked up which was a lot of fun! The captain Piotr was kind, very experienced, and just so much fun! Drinks and snacks are included but we brought wine as well! I recommend Alboran sails for anyone looking to have a great time on the water in Marbella! Unforgettable experience (and the best price we could find!) I will be coming back next summer.

Thanks, Piotr!

After being let down by a previous company who said they were able to accommodate for my disabled grandparents and then could not, I was assured by Piotr that he would be able to hoist my grandmother on to the boat.

We were initially very worried but straight away Piotr was friendly, reassuring and treated my grandparents with real care, dignity and respect. He carefully hoisted my 84 year old grandmother on to the boat and assisted my 89 year old grandfather by holding his hand to help him on to the boat.

The trip itself was really good, despite the waters being a bit choppy. My cousin started feeling a little seasick and straight away Piotr took his mind off it by making him 'captain' and allowing him to sail the boat which he greatly enjoyed.

Unfortunately the Dolphins did not come out for us but we enjoyed the trip nonetheless. I found that it can be so difficult to do many things when traveling with older individuals who are disabled and Piotr completely took the stress out of this part of the trip.

The boat itself was spacious enough for our group of 8 and was clean and easy to find in Puerto Banus.

I would highly recommend using Alboran Sails for anyone but especially if you need special assistance. Hopefully I will be able to bring my grandparents back once more!

We picked a day with strong winds. Piotr was great. He had us sailing the boat and very involved. Boat was comfortable and in good condition. It was a true sailing experience. He is very knowledgable and trustworthy. I would recommend him without reservation.

There may be bigger boats, there may be fancier boats but I can tell you there is no better a captain then Piotr Sitniewski. What will strike most of us that recognize greatness is the passion Piotr has for sailing. Simply put he loves being on the water. What puts him over the top as a charter boat captain is his attention to detail and first class service. He speaks over 5 languages so he can communicate with most anyone. He will involve you as much as he can..... Why? Basically I think it is because he wants everyone to love sailing like he does, and he loves to teach. 26 years on the water, a childhood fantasy comes true.... From where you say.... Poland of all places. Yes he followed a dream and made it his life's work. From building his own first boat with his brother to sailing the channels around Europe. He even met his wife on the water, but I'll let him tell you that story. If you get the chance and you have a free day go sailing, go with Piotr. Don't just book a half day. Book a full day. You will not be disappointed, and if you are a real adventurer book an overnight trip or even an offseason weeklong journey with him. In a place that reeks of poshness and decadence, I can't recommend a more down to earth yet luxurious experience. Alboransails.com

What a fantastic experience !! I spent 10 days in Marbella and this cruise will be my best memory ! I knew the motorboat, but it is so pleasant to sail with the wind, without motor noise .... And we even had the chance to see dolphins :) I recommend Alboransails for everyone. It is an incredible experience !!
