Full-day Private Motorboat Trip

This full-day private motorboat trip takes approximately 3 hours. We have multiple boats available with 6 capacity not including your captain.

As we only provide private motorboat trips, you’ll have the boat for yourself and your own personal skipper will guide you to all the best spots.

A private motorboat trip is one of the best ways to discover the Algarve as you can quickly zip between all the most popular destinations and then also have time to discover the unknown treasures of our beautiful Algarvian coastline.

With departure from Portimão Marina, some of the most beautiful sights along the coast are a stone’s throw away.

During your time out at sea, we have multiple suggested itineraries. Our preferred itinerary is to spend the morning heading East to visit the cliffs and sea caves that make this area famous.

Along the way you will see Carvoeiro, Praia do Carvalho, Benagil, Praia da Marinha as well as lots of other places that only local seafarers know about because you must arrive by boat.

Praia de Benagil and the Benagil Cave are unmissable when visiting the Algarve but your skipper will show you that there are many more impressive rock formations to explore.

Around midday, we suggest a visit to the quaint old fishing town of Alvor to stop for lunch.

We can recommend an inexpensive, local restaurant with a great atmosphere, some of the best Portuguese dishes you will taste, and perfectly chilled drinks.

After lunch, your skipper will anchor at one of the secluded coves of Ponta João d’Arens or along the sand dunes of Alvor bay.

These are some of the most beautiful bays of the Algarve. Here you can swim around and enjoy the white sandy beaches that the region has to offer.

Lagos is also a popular destination on our day trips. You will be delighted throughout your cruise westward as we show you the impressive stone arches and spires of Ponta da Piedade and Praia Dona Ana.

For this full-day private motorboat trip, we have multiple extras you can add to customize your experience:

  • One-way drop off – we usually start and finish at Portimão Marina, but we can also finish your trip in a different marina.
  • ½ catering, including; a charcuterie board with fresh bread as well as sparkling wine, and bottled water.
  • Towable donut or wakeboard – let our skippers give you an extra thrill-ride on one of our towable toys!
  • Lagos town – we can stop in Lagos for a walk around town or to have lunch.

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.
