Took a sail to the Coves. Enjoyed a ride to Lagos free of charge. Lovely crew very interesting and well read in all aspects of sailing. The staff at the harbour were very helpful too. Enjoyed free sangria on the way back.

We did the full day trip to Lagos, and then the caves and a sail on the way back to Alvor, I would highly recommend Trigana, the staff were so helpful and knowledgeable. This was a wonderful day out and about.
