What You Can Expect

'Leaozinho' Pirate Ship Cruise from Albufeira

"Leaozinho" Pirate Ship Cruise

Half Day Cruise with Caves - 3.5 hours
Cruise into the Atlantic, as the sails are set as you head westward along the cliffs and sandy beaches of San Rafael, Castelo and Praia da Gale. Pass the fisherman's village of Armacao de Pera, the rock chapel Senhora da Rocha and reach the beaches of Marina and Benagil.

You will stop for free time to try your hand at fishing, visit the caves or have a swim in the warm, clear water. You may prefer to relax on deck with a drink from the "Pirate Bar" which offers a variety of beverages (beer, water and soft drinks). Returning to the Albufeira, keep your eyes open on the lookout for dolphins which will sometimes swim near to the boat.

Captain Hook Cruise - 2 hours
Cruise into the Atlantic under motor and head westward along the cliffs and sandy beaches of San Rafael, Castelo and Praia da Gale. All eyes are on the ocean surface in search of the friendly local dolphins. A short stop will be made to allow time for a quick swim before setting sail for the return trip to Albufeira.

Great trip for the money. No commentary included though so we didn't know what we were looking at from the sea!!

Fun in a "pirate ship!" Where else can you have the chance to ride on wooden ship through a romantic setting such as Algarve, Portugal? The staff, aka the pirates, where pranksters who knew the sea and how to have fun. I, and I think I can speak for my friends, loved this mini-cruise. We spent most of the day on a semi-remote beach where other companies picnic'd at, but it wasn't too crowded. We had a nice grilled lunch consisting of the local sausage, chicken, and, of course, sardines! Big ones! I would not recommend pregnant women or small children for this trip due to the simple fact that we had to drop anchor and switch vessel to get on a small motored boat to get to the beach. Other than that, I say book it, folks!

This was a lovely way to spend the afternoon in the hot sun while gazing out at the stunning coastline. The boat was very cute and extremely comfortable. The staff were very talkative, pointing out all the famous spots. We were lucky as there were only four of us on the tour, so it was like a private tour! They even gave us a complimentary picture that they took at the start of the tour, which was fab! I would highly recommend this tour, it was very relaxing.

A wonderful day out, a relaxing trip. I loved strolling along the beautiful rocky coast and the amazing caves. A heaven-like sandy beach with one of the cleanest waters I have ever seen.I truly enjoyed the day and would highly recommend it!

I loved the boat experience in Algarve, definitely the best and most relaxing way to see the south coast of Portugal. We loved the boat, which was like a pirate boat and looked much more authentic than the rest of the touristy big boats we saw in the area. The views of the coast were amazing, and we made some stops along the way to take pictures of some amazing cliffs and caves. We also had some time to swim in the crystalline waters, and was a great chance for us to get a beautiful suntan! Definitely recommend it!

It was a great day...beautiful weather. The cruise was amazing, 2 hrs along the coast. Wish there was a bit more history about the coast/towns we saw. Definitely would do it again. No food or beverages provided.
