I have lived in Portugal all my life, I have spent my summers in Lagos ever since I can remember, for all my life I was drawn to the sea, and that has always been my passion, I do have all the required licenses but most importantly I have the experience.
If you decide to set sail with us I can assure you it will feel like being in a friend's boat, enjoying the best that life has to offer.

Where you'll be

You will see the coast of the Algarve like never before, from the caves to the beaches to the breathtaking landscapes, If the weather allows us we will use the power of the wind, for you to see what it's like to properly sail, you will have a chance to paddleboard into the caves of Ponta da Piedade.
In the eventuality of the waves being to discomfortable, we can go to Alvor bay, that is almost 100% sheltered of the swell

Une belle balade en mer en famille au calme au bord des falaises. Nous avons pu faire du paddle pour découvrir les caves sous les falaises, magnifiques! A cette époque presque personne sur l’eau. Nous avons pu déjeuner sur le bateau. Une super expérience avec un chouette skipper.

Best experience we had so far at the Algarve. Don‘t take any speed boat trips etc. Just go for the real thing, this is so amazing and the paddling is just the icing on the cake. We think about charting for a whole day in the future. And João is a great and calm sailor! With a good taste in music:)

Highly recommend! It was a highlight of our time in Lagos. We felt like it was good value for our money — ended up just being us and João so it felt really personable and the paddle boarding around Ponta da Piedade was magical.

João was honestly the best person I have ever worked with or taken up and experience with. My friend and I booked the boat to ourselves (the boat is a stunning 39ft Dufour sailboat) and had the ultimate time of our lives. He took us out to see the cliffs, let us paddle board, we we stopped for swims out in the ocean played our music and chilled out. We did exactly what someone is supposed to do on a beautiful boat out on the gorgeous coastline. It was an exceptional experience and one of a kind for Lagos. I would do this 1000x over it was sublime.
