Luxury experience

“What an amazing, unique experience! Our skipper Paulo was charismatic and calm, he was very accommodating and genuine. We’ve had great luck with the weather and saw some insane sunset colors. This trip is perfect for a small group of friends and for a private romantic experience as well. Definitely a “must do”.”

– Alisa (D)

Wonderful trip

“This was one of the highlights of our holiday. Paulo sailed us down the coast of Madeira, showing us the beautiful coastline and talked to us about all the interesting aspects and history of Madeira. We found this thoroughly informative and was a key part of this enjoyable trip. The kids found the trip exciting and fun. We finished with the beautiful sunset and sailed back to shore with supplied drinks and snacks. The booking process was flawless, which Linda supported with all the detailed info required. A very worthwhile trip!”

One of the best…

“This trip was absolutely incredible. I went just with my girlfriend but the boat had plenty of space for more people. The trip was the perfect amount of time and the boat didn’t go far from the coast so the water was very calm. I was afraid to get seasick but had no issues whatsoever… Our guide was excellent, kind and very professional with loads of knowledge of the island. This is a great way the spend the afternoon and evening, excellent for couples and even for a family. Highly recommend! Thank you very much for a sunset that will be impossible to forget!”
