Ophelia Coastal Cruises - Algarve
The coastline is absolutely stunning. Make sure you bring your camera and be ready to snap loads of photos. and bring plenty of sunscreen - you'll need it on the beach.
The Algarve coastline is spectacularly beautiful - and one of the best ways to appreciate it is from the sea. Board the Ophelia catamaran for a relaxing cruise that is a feast for your eyes - and a great way to work on that tan.
The Ophelia is a large and very comfortable catamaran. Very stable in the water, the Ophelia has an inner lounge, shaded decks and sundecks. And of course, being a catamaran, it has that fantastic net deck from where you have a perfect view into the clear waters.
If you're planning a wedding or party, the Ophelia is available for private hire.
The Ophelia Coastal Cruise leaves from Portimão (where Ophelia is docked) and heads out to sea, passing the pretty fishing village of Ferragudo and the historic castle which overlooks the beach. Towards the West you can see the long golden sands of Praia da Rocha and the contrasting colours of the white sands of Praia do Vau against the red cliffs. To the East you pass the resort of Carvoeiro and sail by the amazing rock formations at Algar Seco. This is a fantasy landscape of caves, grottoes and sea arches that nature has sculpted from the cliffs over thousands of years.The water is wonderfully clear here and with the bright Algarve sunshine filtered through the holes and fissures in the rocks and reflecting off the water, the effect is magical. Small boats take you from the Ophelia through the caves - an experience you are unlikely to forget. Whaterver you do, make sure you have your camera!
A great BBQ lunch is served on a secluded beach giving you time to enjoy a swim and snorkelling or simply some sunbathing on the warm sands.
