Description of Ruben's sailboat

Beneteau First Class 8

The Amuras has excellent navigation due to its length of 8 meters and its steel stud with two meters. these characteristics on a regatta boat allow a smooth sailing with a course in a silence of the absence of the engine and good speed to know the Algarve coast in safety and comfort of a lightweight Sailing Boat that makes you sail with a certain speed. With its retractable canopy we can visit the interior of the Alvor bar and visit places where most sailboats cannot go. In just one day of the tour we can visit Alvor, Portimão, joao de arens, Lagos caves and Cape Carvoeiro with the caves of Benagil. My choice in a first class 8 was due to its excellent performance beauty and elegance that are factors that I have not found in the overwhelming majority of boats Prices: - Full day high season (6-8h): 350 € - Full day low season (6-8h): 275 € - Skipper full day: +75€

What can I say about Ruben? Ruben had excellent communication. He answered every question before meeting. We had one incident where we reserved a motor boat at the beginning of our voyage. I guess something went wrong with the motor, days before meeting up. He found us solution the same day. Which was a sail boat and it was cheaper than the original price! Captain Savior! I was so worried that we would have to cancel the trip and find something else to do. Ruben is really soft spoken, funny and intelligent individual. Was one the best skippers we've ever had! He let us drive the boat while he was adjusting the sails. He had a speaker for music, so we got to listen music while sailing. He helped take pictures of us. While showing us the 3 or 4 landscapes he took us to, he would explain some of the history behind the land. So it was a nice to have a combination of learning and having fun. Once we got off he recommended some very nice restaurants in the area since we were visiting from out of town. We had a blast! I would definitely recommend Ruben whether if your with a group of friends or on a family vacation with children. Thank You Ruben and we will definitely will be back!

Ruben is very reactiv for the reservation. He answered all questions we asked. He's also a good person very kind, quiet & friendly. I recommend him for a family trip with old people to enjoy the landscape and take time for that. He proposed us to put our music on the trip. It was really windy so we cannot sail far away from the cost but the weather cannot be ordered. He's also fluent in english. The sailing ship is perfect for a day trip for 4 people. Thank you Ruben, I wish you all the best.

Ruben is friendly and answers quickly to your questions below. Only issues were with a missing battery and a misunderstanding on how to exit the harbor. The boat is ok for people that wants to enjoy a sail without spending much, although I think it was a bit expensive for her overall status.

Great day on the boat with Ruben. It was very windy but we travelled from Alvor to a secluded bay near Portimão where we swam and visited the nearby beaches. Ruben is a great host, very relaxed and provided us with inflatables and a paddle board to enjoy the water. Would definitely recommend for great value for money. Thanks!

We had an unforgetable sunset-Trip with this beautiful sailboat. Ruben and Nuno are the best! They do everything that you have a good time. They are very sympathetic and professional. After few minuts we felt like hanging out with friends, but they also give us our privacy to enjoin the trip. Thank you for everything, you made the day for us perfect.

Ruben is very friendly and very nice, but the boat is in poor condition. 275 euros was too much for a boat in such condition

Awesome day out with Ruben and Nuno. We checked out the caves west of Praia da Rocha, got a sailing lesson and had a refreshing swim in the ocean to cool down. Highly recommended. Muito Obrigado guys!

Ruben was a brilliant host, picking us up from our apartment at a time of our choosing and dropping us off afterwards. His boat was perfect for a relaxing day along the coast, and couldn't have been more accommodating to our needs. Would definitely use again

We had a great day, thanks Ruben. After a few issues finding our hotel, the actual trip itself was great and Ruben couldn't do enough for us. Highlight being the Kayaking to the beach

Ruben and his partner were lovely and took us on a really enjoyable trip along the Algarve coast. Their boat is based in Portimao but they came to pick us up from Lagos which was great. We swam at deserted beaches and enjoyed a few beers on the boat. It was a lovely relaxing afternoon. Thanks again!

Ruben and his sailing boat was really good. We had a lovely day on his boat. He made us feel very welcome. He has shown us various towns along the coast during our trip. It was a perfect relaxing day to spend with family on board. I would highly recommend Ruben and his very comfortable sailing boat. Value for money and a must do activity. MS

This was the first time I’d used click and boat but it was so easy and everything went as planned. The guys at click and boat were very helpful and Ruben, the boat, couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful, it was a pleasure to meet him. Portimão was an excellent location to sail from, having an amazing coastline and plenty of marinas close enough to visit. I’ll certainly be using click and boat again in the future. Many thanks for a great service.
