Detailed description

Sail down memory lane on a pirate ship: Bob along to incredible caves and tucked-away beaches

Jump onboard the "Leãozinho" which translates to little lion in English and kick off a sailing tour from Albufeira. The little lion in question has been cruising along the Portuguese coast for quite some time and points back to a time when pirates ruled the Ocean. Get an insight into the wayward ways of the past when it comes to pirates and traders who travelled along the coast on this sailing tour from Albufeira. Uncover hidden beaches, breath-taking caves, impressive cliffs and awesome rock formations along the coast in the Algarve. The caves near Carvoeiro are something special. They were created by strong tides in the Atlantic Ocean. Keep your eyes and ears peeled as you are treated to fascinating natural acoustics and beautiful rock formations.

Scroll through the options and pick the right tour for you. The "Leãozinho" serves up lots of different experiences. Take a 6-hour sailing trip on a pirate ship and ride along the coast in Southern Portugal. Sail from Albufeira along to sandy beaches, isolated bays and one-of-a-kind rock formations. Drop the anchor in a blissful bay and tuck into a BBQ lunch, swim in the crystal-clear waters or catch the rays on a pretty beach.

If you’re not up for lunch, then the 3.5-hour Algarve boat trip might be more your cup of tea. Follow the footsteps of a real pirate from long ago and potter around in the hidden caves and bays on the Portuguese coast. Or let’s imagine you want to cram in as much as possible on your summer holiday in Portugal, a 2-hour pirate ship trip gives you more than a glimpse at the Portuguese coastal areas of São Rafael, Castelo and Galé. You still get the chance to stop off for a swim as well.

There is a pirate bar on board the "Leãozinho" which has a decent supply of rum flowing amongst other options. The whole family has fun on this pirate trip. The crew can’t wait to help you improve your pirate lingo. Bring your patches and hooks and off we go – ahoy matey!
