Taking a boat trip or chartering a yacht for the day is one of the very best experiences in the Algarve. The coast is amazingly beautiful, the water is clear, there are caves such as Benagil to explore, the beautiful Ponta da Piedade to discover and secluded beaches to enjoy. 
We asked our friends at SeaBookings to suggest some of the best boat charters available in the Algarve. Here’s what they say:

To enjoy the Algarve in style and at your own pace, there is nothing better than a private boat charter. The following boat charters include a local skipper who’ll also be your guide. There’s a suggested itinerary, but of course you can share your thoughts and adapt the route accordingly. 
The great advantage of renting a boat in the Algarve is that you can choose your own schedule, duration and programme. You can stop for a swim whenever you like and maybe even anchor at a beach bar for some fresh fish. Or do you prefer to have a picnic on a private beach? It’s all possible!
