This luxury private yacht charter / cruise sets off from Vilamoura in the central Algarve region of Portugal. Champagne to start the day and transport available
The Morning Cruise option is a very popular choice for private yacht charters from Vilamoura and across the Algarve.
Why is the morning cruise best?
In general the sea conditions in the Algarve are calmer at the begininning and the end of the day meaning we can get closer to the coastline and the coves. (This is not always the case of course but it is a rule of thumb in the Algarve)
The Morning cruise typically departs from Vilamoura Marina in the central Algarve. The departure time is normally 10.00am but can vary with the time of year and the choice of boat. We will depart Vilamoura Marina and head west (turn right) where we will cruise around 350 metres from the shore line of Falesia beach. The cruise will take in the following beaches and rock formations / sea caves.
Praia Rocha Baixinha
Praia da Falésia
Praia dos Olhos de Agua
Praia da Maria Luísa
Praia de St. Eulália
Praia da Oura
Praia dos Alemães
Praia dos Pescadores
Praia de Arrifes
Praia de São Rafael
Gruta da Xorino (Xorino Cave)
Praia da Coelha
The exact schedule is always tailored to the weather and sea conditions on the day which is a huge advantage of having a private yacht charter and not a group tour. On a typical cruise we will cruise west for approximately 1 hour, we will get as close to the coastline and caves as is safely possible. We have incredibly experienced crew and with the correct tide and wind conditions we can even take you inside Xorino cave which is a highlight of the tour.
We will drop anchor for some time to swim and play in the water. Some of the boat options have snorkelling gear, some SUP (Stand Up Paddle boards), others have inflatable RIB boats to explore hidden beaches and the smaller caves.
Our prices always include taxes, fuel, crew, insurance and our boats are all maintained to the very highest standards.
All of our yachts are of the highest standard and have all safety equipment required under Portuguese law. We are inspected annually and you trip includes full insurance. Safety is always first.
Many of our charters are designed for families and we always have this in mind when planning your trip. We are very used to taking into account the needs of children, from young babies to adrenaline seeking teenagers rest assured that we are here to make the cruise experience both safe, and enjoyable.
The Importance of the crew is crucially important and we only hire the best, most experienced people to ensure the luxury cruise lives up to your expectations.
In our efforts to make make your luxury cruise truly memorable we put a lot of energy into planning the routes, destinations and activities based on the sea conditions, the weather and your group type.
