Ocean Quest Algarve
Explore the seascape and hidden treasures of the Algarve coastline
The Ocean Quest is an 18m, custom-built catamaran that operates from Vilamoura marina. Passionate about the sea, the beauty of the Algarve and its rich traditions, the Ocean Quest team shares their knowledge and enthusiasm with all those who come aboard. There is a marine biologist on board to help identify the seabirds and sea life you see, including dolphins, who love playing by the Ocean Quest hull. Sunsets at sea are always special, and on board the Ocean Quest they are even more so, with live music and mellow DJ sessions to ease day into night. The Ocean Quest Algarve experience is relaxed and happy - perfect for families and groups of friends.
In addition to the catamaran, Ocean Quest has a speed boat and luxury yachts available for private charter. Perfect for small groups, this is a great way to explore the coast and to treat yourself to a fun and relaxing sea experience. For a shot of adrenaline, opt for the Parasailing experience, sailing high above the sea with fabulous views of the coast.
