Algarve - Vilamoura Charter Boats

Algarve - Portimao Charter Boats

Portugal and the Portuguese coastline is best discovered from the comfort of a yacht and here we bring you a selection of the best yachts for hire by the hour or the day in Portugal. 

Boat hire in Portugal is a popular activity for tourists as you would imagine in a country with such splendid coastlines and nautical history. The hotspot for boat rentals and yacht charters is in the Algarve which is a strip of coastline at the southern tip of the Portuguese mainland. Other main locations for boat rentals and charters would be in Lisbon, Porto and the Açores, the Algarve however is by far the top spot with boats of all sizes whizzing up and down the coastline. 

What boat rental options are there in the Algarve? 

The first thing to decide is whether you would like to go on a shared boat or a private boat, this makes a huge difference in terms of budget and comfort. Shared boats can go out with a ticket price as low as €25 per person, some of these boats can accommodate 100+ passengers so bear in mind they can be crowded and noisy but are the low budget option. There are small RIBs that can be hired with crew to find dolphins and see the caves, these are not so expensive but again bear in mind you are in a RIB so will get wet and there are not toilets or facilities - prepare in advance!

Then its all about choosing a sailing boat or a motor boat.

What is the best Yacht Charter option in the Algarve? 

Hiring a Sailing Boat in the Algarve

Sailing boats offer adventure and a real experience of active sailing and a chance to get involved with the boat, they do tend to have less deck space and because the boats have a "Keel", (which can be a few metres deep), they are unable to get into the shallower waters around the caves. They also have a mast so cant enter any of the actual caves. Hiring a sailing boat is great to get wet and to enjoy the ocean at a gentler pace with more focus on the experience than the environment around.

Something to bear in mind - Being subject to wind conditions its also less certain what you will be able to see on a charter and how far you can go. 

Hiring a Motor Yacht in the Algarve

Motor Yachts for Private Hire are probably the best option for smaller groups from 1-12 or larger groups taking multiple boats and sailing in convoy. Motor yachts are in the luxury category and offer space, comfort, privacy, security and usually include a level of drinks and snacks. Its a place you can relax with loved ones and have more control over your day. All of the shared boat options operate to a set route and schedule but with the private boat option you can work with the skippers to plan the day based on your group, more time for activities and swimming for example or a relaxing long cruise to see more of the coastline. The choice can be yours. 

Boat hire in Portugal is very secure and most boats and companies will only hire the boat out with 2 crew for safety and also for comfort as you can have your own personal guide to make sure you don´t miss out on one of the treasures of the coast.
