Reservations

Yes. Reservations ensure you get the experience you are looking for and the best day that fits into your travel plans. Reservations also help us plan and ensure we have enough supplies on board for the number in your group and we can accommodate any special requests. 

Please be advised deposits are non-refundable. Once you have made your reservation, we will reject other bookings that may be for the same date and duration to accommodate your request. We may contact you to reschedule your charter date if the weather will make your charter uncomfortable. If needed, we will try to reschedule you for the previous or following day as this will be the next best option. Thank you for your understanding.

We would rather you make a reservation in advance; however, we understand that these are busy times and sometimes it is not possible to book in advance. Please contact us and we will do our very best to accommodate your group.

Yes. You may extend your charter time if time allows. You may add an hour or two depending upon availability. We will not be able to accommodate your extension request if there is a booking after your charter.

Yes, we have gift certificates. A private yacht charter makes a perfect gift to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries. You may also want to give a charter as a wedding present. Please contact us directly and we can provide you with a certificate for any type of charter you select.

Planning Your Day

Wear whatever is comfortable. We recommend you dress in layers and wear comfortable athletic clothing that will wick away perspiration and keep you dry. You will want to have a sun hat, sunscreen, and a lightweight jacket if the weather is chilly. Bring a swimsuit if you intend to go swimming, snorkeling, or kayaking. We provide fresh towels for your convenience.

Our charters are all inclusive, so you do not have to bring much. We suggest you bring appropriate clothing for the season and a camera to take pictures of your adventure. For more details see What should I wear?

Yes, we have life jackets for babies, toddlers, and young children who are all welcome aboard. We have drinks, snacks and treats suitable for all ages. We also have room for baby strollers.

While we are pleased to provide assistance for clients, and storage for folding wheelchairs, unfortunately access to the boat deck is not 100% step-free. If you have other mobility devices or think you  may need assistance to come aboard, please call us to discuss options for your desired schedule.

Yes. There are two restrooms, a large private cabin, and two showers in the boat. For your convenience there is also a freshwater shower at the stern of the boat to rinse off after swimming.

Yes. We generally stop to go swimming, snorkeling or kayaking as time allows. The Algarve water is warm and clear, and you should spend as much time in it as possible. We have snorkeling equipment aboard. We also have kayaks and water rings for all to enjoy. You can plan the details with the crew once you are on board.

Yes, absolutely, we can order seafood or Sushi to have onboard for your charter or we have great relationships with several beachside restaurants that will come out to the boat and take you to shore. They will also ensure you get a table with an amazing view.

Yes, there is a stereo system with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, so bring your personal digital music collection.

We do not have a pick-up service, but it is easy for you to arrange transportation to Vilamoura Marina with your hotel. Your driver will take you to the marina taxi stand. It is just a short walk down the stairs to the A1 gate. We will meet you there.

Payment

We understand that you may not have a printer handy when you are traveling. A printed copy of your reservation is not necessary, we have a copy of your reservation information. However, we require that you show ID matching your reservation.

If the reservation is not in your name, we will need confirmation from the person that made the booking to let us know you are in their group.

No, we do not charge any extra fees or fuel surcharges and all taxes are included.

No, we leave that up to your discretion. Tips are not expected but are greatly appreciated by the crew.

Weather

We do go yachting in rainy and overcast weather conditions as these conditions do change rapidly in the Algarve. It could be sprinkling rain while boarding and brilliant sunshine before you leave the dock. After all, we are going on an adventure! We will contact you the day before your charter if there are changes due to weather. If needed, we will try to reschedule you for the previous or following day as this will be the next best option.

You are not likely to get seasick during your charter. You can avoid motion sickness by proactively taking motion sickness medication before boarding. If you are feeling uneasy, the best place to be is on the sun pad at the back of the boat. If weather conditions are going to make the charter uncomfortable, we will work with you to reschedule for a better day.
