What you'll do

Enjoy real sailing on the rio Sado and explore the natural beauty of the sea
- Sailing with the wind, be a sailor
- Relax & enjoy the Rio Sado, Arrábida & Troía
- Explore the natural beauty of the estuary Rio Sado & Arrábida
- Complementary coffee, a glass of wine and a muscatel
- We make pictures so you can relax & enjoy

Sailing along the beautiful coastline of Tróia & Arrábida or into the astonishing estuary of the Rio Sado, depending on the weather & wind. Immediately after departing the dock we hoist the sails so you can enjoy the silence and the sounds of the wind & waves. You can relax and enjoy the sailing and natural beauty or you can be a real sailor setting the sails and steer the boat. Most often the dolphins come to swim along our sailing boat jumping & playing loving our bows because we really sail and do not use the noisy and dangerous engine in their presence. We serve a coffee, a glass of splendid wine from the region Setúbal and a cup of muscatel de Setúbal.

With 49 years of sailing experience I departed Holland for a sailing journey to the Caribbean. During the first part of my journey I found love in Setúbal and fell in love with the beauty of the Rio Sado, Tróia and Arrábida, ending up settling here with my love & my passion.

A couple of years ago I bought the catamaran 'Green Dolphin' to be able to sail the amazing estuary enjoying its beauty to the max. I spend a lot of time to refurbish the catamaran, decorating her with ideas from my artistic girlfriend. I invite you to come take a look inside at the result!

As a man of the sea I have great respect for nature and the environment, keeping my ecological footprint to a bare minimum. If we can sail we will sail; no noisy engine, no dangerous propeller; getting all the energy from the sun; and use as little potable water as possible.

Where you'll be

Departing from Setúbal we will hoist sails and, depending on tides and current, explore the estuary of the Rio Sado, enter the shallow hidden bay of Caldeira, the islands in front of Troia and the coastline of Arrábida. The Rio Sado and the coast of Arrábida is home to a large community of bottlenose dolphins which most often come swim along our catamaran jumping & playing because we really sail and do not use the noisy engine.

Excellent expert! Peter and his partner are wonderful hosts. Beautiful scenery, nice snacks and wine, and we got lucky with a great group of other people. Boat itself is very comfortable and no overcrowded with guests. There is a bathroom on board and anything else you need. Would highly recommend!

We had an amazing experience with Peter Carmon! We lucked out and got to see several pods of dolphins and spent a little extra time since they were so active around us. We learned about the area while we were sailing and were able to stop to swim if you wanted to. We had wine or other beverages were available with a nice snack of veggies. Would highly recommend them and we would go again!

Peter and Carmo couldn’t be better, the activity was absolutely amazing, we got to see dolphins, an almost private beach and their secret spot. The boat is very comfortable, we had snacks and drinks and the hosts were all the time asking everyone is they were having a good time. It was absolutely fantastic!

Genoten! Als kers op de taart ook nog dolfijnen mogen zien. Heerlijk vooraan al glijdend over het water kunnen ontspannen. Peter komt met leuke weetjes die iets extra’s toevoegen. Comfort en een lekker klein gezelschap. Zeker als je nagaat dat je voor de grotere organisaties hetzelfde betaald en lang niet zo ontspannen en luxe vaart. Oh en niet te vergeten, de wijn was zalig!

Peter and his son are good hosts. The boat is a comfortable size (we were a group of 14) and, while it's a really nice way to spend the afternoon and definitely not something I could have done or organised myself, I felt it was a little underwhelming overall and different to the picture painted by other reviews.
