Viator got this right again going to the meeting point at the marina is great , lunch and a drink before the trip , lots to do and see there also the staff for check in were good.
The boat did come in a bit late so we waited for 30 minutes I had a word about it and got complimentary drinks , although it was fine as we still got the full 2 hour trip .
The boat is fun authentic enough and although not huge it was not over booked so plenty of room to move .
We set out to the cliffs and caves under steam power but then switched to sail that was very nice and relaxing , we then anchored up and the brave dived/jumped into the freezing water I was one of them
We then headed back under steam and enjoyed drinks from the very reasonable bar , two of my guests had never done such a trip and they love it , my daughter a hardy ship mate also really enjoyed it , as did I
Highly recommend trip. The guides are really helpful and know the area well. Really nice views
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!
The trip was nice, we saw most of the famous beaches in Albufeira. There could be some more personality and flair to the trip.
Lovely late afternoon trip on a beautifully maintained wooden sailing ship! Pirate sailors extreme friendly and chatty! Comfortable cushioned benches for relaxing or reading! Option to go swimming over the side too!
We had a wonderful time. The water is beautiful. You take the pirate ship out to the caves and then you transfer to a small dingy in groups of 6 to tour the caves. The crew is super friendly and they give you information on what you are passing on the shore.
A nice relaxing family day. The guys were very informative and great with kids. Kids got to wear pirate costumes on board. overall a day to top up the tan.
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.
nice day on the water, BBQ on an island, visited the caves, recommended
Nice easy way to spend a couple of hours, but nothing special.
It was ok. I don and #39;t think I would recommand this tour. Very long with no ambiance, Doesn and #39;t go to Benagil and #39;s cave. If I had to rebook. I would and #39;ve taken Mara and #39;s Cruise.
Not as described in the viator site. Crew was good, but this is just a 3 hour boat cruise and that and #39;s it. Pretty boring actually. There were better companies offering this cruise with a better experience. Normally trust Viator-this was a disappointment.
Don't waste your time - a very rickety boat masquerading as a pirate boat a journey of one hour one way and then back
Nothing worthhwhile to see and glad it wasn't longer
Sold as a Dolphin spotting experience, there was no effort made to find any. Didn't appreciate the accusing and patronising attitude from the staff because my daughter didn't want to go in the sea - there was a reason!
On a side note, I also didn't appreciate the constant pestering, via email, from Viator. I know when my trip is - I booked it! I don't need to be constantly reminded!
