Project Description

Unveiling the secrets of the Deep Blue

We set sail from the Arade river mouth towards Portimão’s underwater canyon around 12 miles offshore, a known wildlife hotspot. Upon departure, guests will have a wildlife and environmental awareness briefing.

In the canyon’s vicinity we can often find common dolphins, bottlenose dolphins, minke whales, marlins, sharks, and a variety of marine birds.

We choose only the best weather conditions for this unique ride and will try to sail whenever possible…the experience of sailing with marine mammals around is unique and unforgettable. Depending on the day we can experience a swim in the deep blue offshore waters and the quietness of the big blue ocean.

An unique experience!
