Started in small sail boats for about 10 years Bought my first power boat, a 21ft bayliner From 2010 I have been skippering a sail catamaran taking tourists for a sail day. The next year I started skipper jobs with a 40ft Azimut along the coast. My first crossing was with a 32ft catamaran from Lisbon to Madeira and back, just for fun, with friends. Delivering either power boats and sailboats up and down the Portuguese coast, from Lisbon to Algarve and back, mainly. In 2015 I bought my 40ft sailboat and have been doing cruise trips with clients since then. I owned two guest houses so I have a pretty good knowing in entertaining guests.
A group of four work colleagues rented the boat for a half day. It was a great day out and I’d highly recommend it. The owner and his colleague were very very friendly and made sure we were relaxed and comfortable. Unexpectedly, they set up a table for us at the back of the boat and prepared the lunch we had brought with us to eat. We travelled to a quiet beach and docked about 100m out from the shore and jumped into the sea for about 45 mins. We then travelled back to Lisbon and then to the docks.
I’d highly recommend these guys as they were friendly and professional and just wanted us to have a good time.
