Amazing boat charter.
Having sailed in many places around the world this is one of my top sailing experiences.

I chartered a boat with three friends with no sailing experience, yet the boat was well equipped and simple enough they could pick it up easily, and we were still able to pick up 8kt speed from a 12kt wind on our crossing to Santa Maria.

The boat had plenty of safety equipment (Epirb, life raft) engine and equipment was well serviced with all the appropriate safety checks done each season.

Mauro and Duarte had excellent knowledge of the area with great tips on where to go to see wildlife. They are super super friendly and if you aren't confident skippering the boat I sure they would be excellent company on your travels. Both young and full of positive energy they have built the business themselves and go out of there way to answer questions and make your trip awesome. They were even helpful when we were off the boat and visiting Soa Miguel the week after our charter.

Fully recommended.

We have been a group of friends in August and it has been a amazing experience. We rented a bavaria cruiser 41. A boat with three spacious cabins and that sails very well. We achieved 8 knots of speed with 14 of real wind. We were able to snorkel with stingrays, saw whale sharks, sperm whales, turtles and numerous dolphins. The company was very professional, the boat was very well equipped and the treatment of its employees was very good. I recommend that you sail through the Azores, they are beautiful islands with good weather in summer and cheap. We will certainly repeat.

We went to the central group of the azores with Puresail. It was a beautiful way to know that 5 islands with a different perspective! This trip was gifted with amazing sunsets, dolphins, whales, turtles, phytoplankton that glows in the dark sea at night and the most starry skies that I've ever seen. Perfect to share with some close friends or family. I recommend this trip 1000%. A big thank you to Duarte, our skipper for this trip. He was great!!
I miss Hera already! ⛵

If you are looking for a professional, friendly charter company then look no further if you plan to sail the Azores. The boat was prepared and ready for us before our official check-in time. Everything was explained in detail including the various check-in / check-out requirements for the different islands that make up the Azores.

An absolute treasure of an experience, sailing through Azores, having the unique opportunity to watch wildlife, seeing majestic views, and visiting 6 island im a week. Everything in a great yatch, with the coolest skipper, for a very fair price.

Can't recommend it enough to be honest.

Absolutely brilliant guys who couldn’t do enough to help us out. We had a fantastic four days on the boat sailing over to Santa Maria. The boat was fantastic, so well equipped and perfectly maintained.

But the service didn’t stop there. We also bought bikes with us and they stored them for us while we were on the boat. Then really helped us out afterwards keeping the bike boxes while we biked round the island. They also helped us sort PCR tests before flying home. They literally couldn’t have been more helpful.

Would recommend these guys with absolutely no reservation at all.

Me, my wife and a couple of friends spent one amazing week sailing in Azores. Duarte came with us as a skipper and in the end also as a great friend! The yacht was beautiful and super comfortable. We did lot's of fishing and we even had the amazing chance to see lot's of dolphins and some sperm whales!
Definitely one of the best vacation weeks I've had so far.
Thanks Duarte and Mauro for making it possible!
Hope to see you again next year!

We were two couples who came to Sao Miguel for the first time and wished to charter a boat for a day of sailing around the lovely island. Our hotel recommended Pure Sail and it was amazing. From the moment we met Duarte and Mauro at the pier we were not disappointed. The boat, Hera, was in pristine condition and immaculately clean. We sailed, swam, had yummy sangria, then white wine and a simple but delicious lunch with fresh pineapple for dessert. Duarte and Mauro have such a passion for sailing and it shows in the way they care for their boats, their business and their customers. Mauro even rescued an inexperienced and wayward paddle boarder that came close to crashing in the rocks - Mauro hopped into his dingy and saved the stranger - all with a cheerful smile. I cannot recommend Pure Sail any higher than a 5-star rating. I hope to return to the Azores again and definitely sail with Pure Sail!

A great way to get to know the Azores. It gives a completely different perspective from a land stay, allowing to experience one of the most interesting elements of this archpelago, which is the contact of the island with the ocean
