Day trip to Lagos
This was our first holiday in Alvor and going on a boat trip. From the moment we walked on the boat and met Bart and Freddie we knew it was going to be an amazing trip. Sharing their knowledge of the area was very interesting. Both travelling to and from Lagos and seeing farol da ponta da piedade with them was amazing. When we come back to Alvor for our next holiday, going on one of boat trips will be the first thing we do. From a non swimmer with a fear of water (although they didn't know this) I have never felt so comfortable and relaxed being on the sea. I wish I could give them and the trip more than 5 stars. Thanks again Bart & Freddie

We offer boat trips aboard our traditional Portuguese wooden sailing vessels. Wether you would like to gently cruise the conservation area Within the estuary, take a trip along the coast to the rock formations, swim or snorkel from the boat, come out on one of October fishing trips, our day trips to Lagos or just relax at sunset with a glass of bubbly watching the sun go down, we have something for you.
Operating from the beautiful coastal village of Alvor situated in the Algarve, southern Portugal. Alvor Has Been inhabited for over 1600 years and yet still has it's fishing village character. Within the protected natural harbor / estuary Alvor is ideally positioned in the middle of Lagos bay to explore what this wonderful coastline has to offer.
we are also blessed with long sandy beaches, islands in the estuary, rocky coves and clean waters, with superb views from the sea of other villages and the nearby mountain range.
Trigana and Formosa are BOTH unashamedly old fashioned boats with a gaff cutter rig, built in Moita, near Lisbon, with a reassuring solidity. The whole concept of our trips is to bridge the gap between young and old, of present day fun with time honoured craftsmanship. The boats fit into the coastal scene, disturbing little on the way, quietly finding Their way, the nature Allows, to places hidden from life ashore.
We like to sail the boats Whenever possible and the such, the wind is what often decides where we will go.
We cater for groups up to 12 passengers on one boat and 10 passengers on the other. We run a mix of scheduled trips for Individuals and families alike, and also offer 'whole boat hire' where the skippered and crewed vessel is chartered for exclusive use of the party.
