Hi All I was meant to have done a review end of May 2019 but never got round to it until, apologies Always sailing… First of all, I must thank the captain, one of the most wittiest, people I have ever met, such a nice guy, he makes you feel at ease and part of his sailing crew. I booked a sailing trip with Always Sailing February 2019 for my 50th Birthday, it was my cousins birthday as we are both born on the same day so this was a joint trip with close family and friends. The boat was booked for the whole day including food and drink of all sorts and a big birthday cake my cousin & me. It was somewhat difficult trying in the beginning trying to book the trip from the UK at the time, as sending a deposit via a UK bank transfer to a Cape Verde is hard and your UK bank will charge as much as £26 to do any amount for a transfer. As this was so much hassle with my bank at the time, the sales Rep from Always Sailing agreed that when we arrived in Sal we would meet up and exchange a deposit with rest paid on the day of the sailing. When we arrived Thursday 16th May 2019 in Cape Verde Sal, I meet up with the captain in town that evening and we spoke for some time about how I wanted the day to go and it was agreed and deposit was exchanged. On the Monday morning 20th May 2019 my cousin & I hit 50th, we excited along 14 family members & friends who flew over with us to enjoy our day/a whole week. On that Monday Always Sailing came to pick us all up from the hotels and drove us all to Sal town centre to the pier where we waited to get picked by the sea crew transferred to the yacht anchored a little way out off shore. The transfer was fab, the crew were friendly, it was as if they had known you for years, and were attentive too making sure we all transferred safely from the pier to the awaiting yacht. When we all got on the boat the captain & the awaiting other crew members greeted everyone, once we were all on board safely, anchor was raised and away we went. After at least 10 minutes sailing drinks of all sorts and snacks started to arrive were none stop, if you wanted more it wasn't a problem or an effort for the crew. We starting sailing around the island, everyone was relaxed and the sailing was just amazing, some of us went for a dive in the water and a swim off the coast, it was loved and enjoyed by all. At some point we were asked to come below deck and we had an amazing dinner all 14 of us, wine, champagne to celebrate me and my cousin 50th, I was really taken back and to be with family and friends too made it all special. The captain & crew made the whole event a day to remember, I will always be thankful and grateful for his help and making it all come together on the day. I must not forget his girlfriend, she was fab and yes the crew the best, so down to earth , great crew. After the dinner, we all went back on deck, the capatain open another bottle of champagne and he made a toast and we had the birthday cake, music, laughter had by all. The rest of the afternoon was chilled sailing in the until the sun until near sunset. Always sailing for me and all who attended loved the experience from start to finish, we will never forget you guys and we will book another boat trip when we come back again to Cape Verde. I hope you guys are ok during Covid, I know it’s been hard out in Cape Verde. For anyone who books these guys, they are fab, made my day special and will make your experience one to remember. Enjoy Always Sailing who ever books, I will post some images up online on trip Advisor when I get a free moment.

We booked our full day sailing trip with alwaysailing following recommendation from a friend. It is a day we will always remember for such a great experience. This was Friday 7th February 2020. It was worth every penny with the amount of delicious food and drink being served. You can tell these people really love what they do. We were well looked after by the crew and made to feel like royalty. We recommend this trip. It was a great stress relief. Simply a must. Enjoy.

As promised, 2 hours of smooth sailing up and down the coast. Nice wind so we've been speeding :-) Saw flying fish, but didn't catch anything during the fishing time. Too bad but we've had a lot of fun. Nice crew too.
