Key Highlights

  • Sail in a pirate cruise ship and explore the Algarvian coast


Sail the pirate-way on a Leãozinho, a brilliant replica of a pirate cruise ship with sails, on the Atlantic and discover some beautiful spots along the Algarvian coast. Find yourself a comfortable seat along the mid-deck and enjoy endless views of the ocean as the ship heads westwards. Feel the wind on your face as you sail along the cliffs and the pristine sandy beaches of San Rafael and Castelo.

Look-out for a string of quaint fisherman’s villages as you glide past them. You will have some leisure time to hone your angling skills, take a refreshing dip or explore the caves. Treat yourself to a drink from the Pirate Bar and stretch on the deck to soak up the sun. On your return, keep an eye out for the dolphins who might just trail your boat!
