Early-Bird Private Motorboat Trip

This early-bird private motorboat trip takes approximately 2 hours. We have multiple boats available for up to 10 guests each.

This is a private trip, so only your friends and family will accompany you as the motorboat is navigated to sought-after locations and hidden coastal gems by one of our highly-competent skippers.

We like to wake up early to visit some of the most admired caves and rock formations of the Algarve before the crowds! Are you with us? We guarantee you won’t regret it!

Usually, the sea is much calmer in the morning. Can you imagine a better way to start your day?

This early trip is ideal for families and groups of friends that wish to enjoy the natural beauty of the Algarve far from the crowds and get the most out of their day.

With an 8am start, you can be sure to see those most popular sites without another soul in sight. Take the perfect photos unspoilt by a log-jam of other boats, kayakers and tourists.

We head East to explore famous caves such as Benagil Cathedral Cave system and the towering arches of Praia da Marinha and Praia de Albandeira .

Along the way, we’ll stop by the most interesting sea caves and hidden beaches as well as the scenic town of Carvoeiro, Alfonzina Lighthouse, and historically important Torre de Lapa.

We’ll point out the St João of the Arade Castle, as well as hand-built cliffside ladders that are still used today by brave local fishermen, and much more!

If you’d like some more time to explore the coastline, check out our full-day private motorboat trip .

Or maybe you prefer a sailing yacht or modern catamaran instead of a motorboat? We’ve got these options too! Feel free to have a look at all our day trips in the Algarve.
