Nigel and his team are great + super nice with our children, letting them steer the boat, etc. The boat is beautiful and food/drinks were delicious. We had the most wonderful time sailing in the bay during sunset. Nigel shared with us many recommendations for trips, restaurants,

The two hour champagne cruise with snacks was our best activity on my birthday weekend. The captain, first mate and crew were excellent company, very welcoming and engaging. A repeat visit will be necessary on our next trip.

This was the most incredible trip to take, to watch the sun go down over Lisbon. Great views of the city, Belem and the Cristo Rei Statue. David hosted us and was so welcoming, and kept us very well fed and watered. A really great thing to do and thoroughly recommended.

We had high expectations going into this tour and Nigel surpassed it and more! Both he and Dave were friendly, accommodating and so much more! I went on this trip with two girlfriends and it was one of the highlights of our entire trip! I would love to sail with these two again!
