Nothing was too much trouble for Captain Rick and 1st mates Fredy. Assistance and guidance were given where necessary while more experienced fishermen/women were... More

As usual you are faced with a huge choice of trip providers and this is the one we chose because of sailing in an old traditional vessel. Best choice we have ever made. Bart and Pedro were very welcoming, friendly, informative and involved is all in the trip. Best bit for us was sailing back, proper sailing. Best day on... More

Enjoyed our 2.5 hour trip on the Trigana, the crews knowledge of the area was great and interesting. We had two teenage boys with us and they involved them in putting the sails up on the way back which they loved. Great afternoon out.

I booked an all day (2pm-8pm) sailing trip with Rick and his sail boat. We arrived and promptly got on the water. We were started by finding a smooth place to anchor and eating lunch (piri piri chicken, salad, bread, potatoes) at 3pm. We then went out of the bay and sailed past Lagos. We requested a stop and got... More
