About this tour

Half-Day Private Sailing Trip

This half-day private sailing trip from Portimão takes approximately 3 hours and can start in the morning or in the afternoon.  Up to 10 guests can join our crew on one of our modern sailing yachts that come complete with 2 bathrooms and a full kitchen.

This half-day private sailing trip is a great option for people who are new to sailing or would just prefer a shorter time on the water.  You’ll have the entire boat for yourself on this private sailing trip so your skipper can tailor the trip to suit your preference. Your crew will take care of the sails and navigation while showing you the sights and sharing the history of the area.

If you prefer a calm and relaxing sail, choose our morning half-day sailing trip option when the wind and waves are typically lighter and calmer and there is little worry about the sailing getting a bit too exciting. With our usual gentle morning breeze, your yacht will remain stable and easy to walk around, even for grandma and grandpa.  Pick a comfortable seat in the cockpit or venture to the bow or midship to sunbathe or simply absorb the beauty of the Algarve from the sea.

If you are more interested in getting a taste of the wind in your sails, choose the afternoon half-day sailing trip when our afternoon breeze starts to pick up and you can experience the feeling of the wind driving you forward.  Our experienced crew will always adjust the sails to your level of comfort. Whether the sails are all the way out and the sailing boat is healing over, or you are sailing with just one sail, the moment the engine turns off and the quiet of the sea surrounds you, will be a moment you will remember forever.

During your 3 hours out at sea, we have multiple suggested itineraries. We always like heading West and visiting the cliffs and caves that make this area famous. In fact, Alvor with its peaceful, fine-sand beaches is a popular anchorage on our half-day trips. We love stopping there and exploring the beaches that appear out of nowhere on low tide.

This is a great spot for the kids to swim, try out our stand-up paddle board, or beach comb. Along the way, you will see beautifully restored St. John’s Castle of the Arade river, the town of Ferragudo and cruise by Ponta João D’Arens and Praia do Vau.  If you have already seen the more popular caves to the East of Portimão,  but would love to explore hidden and unknown caves and grottos, ask our crew to drop anchor here. We have some secrets to share!

We can also head East toward the world-famous Benagil Caves and the unique rock formations of Praia da Marinha. We’ll sail by the storybook town of Carvoeiro, historic Alfanzina Lighthouse, and Torre de Lapa as well as  Praia do Carvalho and lots of other attractions that are lesser known because they are inaccessible except by boat.

If you would like refreshments and snacks while on the water, we can organize a half-catering option for you where you will have a generous grazing board as well as wine, local beer, and non-alcoholic beverages.

If you would like to have the whole day to enjoy being out on the water, and perhaps have a luxurious meal on anchor, check out our full-day sailing trips.

Absolutely wonderful experience, not at all too cold in early December.

Absolutely magical morning on the water. My husband and I were visiting in early December (and we are from Texas and not terribly used to cold) and I was worried it would be too cold, but with a few jackets and windbreaker it was very pleasant. Our skipper Naldo was amazing, not only did we get a very capable boatsman, but he was a great photographer and got tons of perfect pictures of us, (which is always difficult to get pictures together when traveling as just a couple). The views were breathtaking and the boat was outfitted with everything we could need. Well worth the cost and I will be highly recommending this experience to everyone I know who visits the area.
