FAQ | Boat rental

What kind of boat should I rent?

The “right” choice of boat to rent depends on a correct allocation of priorities in relation to:

1: Number of guests
2: Rental duration
3: Itenerary: relax VS explore

As a general rule, if what interests you most is the journey, and you want to spend a relaxing time on board, then choose a sailboat. If your focus is on the destination, check out the motorboats. For an exclusive experience of the Setúbal coast, we recommend renting a catamaran for a day. Finally, we have boats available for parties, with capacity for groups of 11 to 250 guests. If you still have questions, just ask!

What should I bring?

Bring comfortable, seasonal clothing with you. Don’t forget that it’s often 10 degrees colder in the water, so bringing a jacket or windbreaker is never a bad idea. We also recommend that you bring a hat, sunscreen and sunglasses, as well as a bathing suit and towel.
When you use Arrabida Sea Ventures to rent a boat in Setúbal, you can bring any food and/or drink you like on board, as long as it’s “simple” food and you avoid red drinks!

What happens in the event of bad weather?

“Bad weather” doesn’t mean no sun, it means that there are no safe conditions for a peaceful tour.

If on the day before the rental it turns out that the weather conditions are not favorable, we will contact you in order to reschedule for a date favorable to both parties. (If this is not possible within a few days, the customer will receive a voucher for the contracted service valid for 24 months).

If the client, after being warned by our team to reschedule, decides to take the risk and keep the date of the rental, or if the weather conditions worsen from one moment to the next, without there being any way of predicting it, and the crew decides that it is better not to go out to sea, you will be reimbursed in full.

Is fuel included in the rental price?

Fuel is included in the boat rental with skipper. When you rent a boat without a skipper, fuel is not included in the rental price and you will have to fill up the tank before checking out. Please contact us if you would like an estimate of the cost of fuel to book this boat.

Do I need a license to rent a boat?

Most of our boats in Setúbal are available to rent with crew only, in which case there is no need for a license.

We have some boats that you can rent without a skipper, in which case you will need to have a seaman’s license or a local skipper‘s license, depending on the boat you want to rent. The letter will be requested on the day of booking, and to avoid “misunderstandings” we require you to send the letter/license in pdf format before accepting payment in order to avoid any unpleasant surprises on the day of rental.

Am I insured in case of problems with the boat at sea?

ps: In the case of crewed rentals, this question does not arise.

In the case of rentals without a skipper, the boats available are insured. If the boat is damaged when it is returned, the boat insurance may cover up to a certain amount and the rest will be taken from your deposit. It should be noted that most incidents are resolved out of court.

Do I have enough experience to rent this boat?

ps: In the case of crewed rentals, this question does not arise.

Be honest with yourself, only you know the answer. Normally a boat 20% above your current experience is acceptable, going from “donkey” to “horse” can go wrong.

How do I change the date or time of my reservation?

Have you booked a boat, but the date or time is no longer suitable for you? Don’t worry, we’re here to help! Up to 7 days before the rental, you can change your reservation depending on the availability of both parties. Get in touch with our team via whatsapp or email so we can help!

What if I cancel the reservation?

Although it’s rare, sometimes we may have to cancel a reservation. We understand that this can have a significant impact on your plans and will never happen without verifiable justification. You can rest assured that, in the unlikely event of this happening, you will automatically receive a refund or we can help you find a similar or better boat to rebook.

It was an excellent and wonderful experience. The employees were pretty friendly. Susana and Vítor provided a great service, they left us all happy and full of laughter during the whole trip. They explained the landscapes and history to us very well. Their company is the only one that can be very close to the coast. Besides, after leaving for twenty or so minutes, it was lucky that we found many dolphins by their good guide. Comparing with my experience in Madeira on a tour boat, in Setúbal it was much better and we loved it a lot. Without a doubt, we will go there and take more people. I want to give ten stars!!! ❤️

Fabulous experience!!! Great communication. Victor and his daughter were very gracious, clean boat, perfect for the excursion. Saw so many dolphins. Swam in a beautiful clear water green grotto. A very exciting memorable day! Thank you Edgar and group!
We had an amazing time on the dolphin and coastline tour with Arrabida Sea tours! Our guides were knowledgeable, professional, experienced and very friendly. They were kind to my children and very eager to point out and help them see dolphins!It took a while before we saw any dolphins, and we were worried they might give up and say no dolphins today, but they kept looking and calling other boats. And sure enough, we saw dozens. It was truly magical and something my kids will never forget! And at age 74 my mom saw dolphins for the first time in her life, and experienced it with her only grandchildren! It was a fantastic day filled with a lifetime of memories!Do not hesitate and do not book with anyone else. If you have any questions, concerns, issues, send a WhatsApp or call/leave a voicemail. I did, and I am so thankful I did. They answered my voicemail and my WhatsApp and really took care of my family. Treated us like their family!We can’t wait to return and book another adventure! THANK YOU!

We used Arrabida Sea Ventures to book a private sailing boat. It was the highlight of the trip for us. We truly enjoyed our time with the crew and the incredible sightseeing that you can only get from the water. Highly recommended.
Great tour with a good view of the occean and a comfortable boat/crew. We saw the dolphins close to the boat and were next to them for a long time. When the dolphins needed peace, we drove to the coast and looked at some of the beaches.Would definately reccomend this company!

The best captain in Sesimbra! Available, helpful, friendly, extraordinary, no adjectives possible for the trips we made. Over the years we have done several and I can assure you that the last one is always better than the penultimate. Don't hesitate, this is your choice for a Genre adventure. P.S. for those who can, ask to see the sea on fire....

A fantastic experience. We saw loads of bottleneck dolphins and were the only boat there for a while. Edgar is a great guide who gave just the right amount of Information. The trip along the coast after the dolphins was also wonderful.

Contact us and book now!

Welcome to Arrabida Sea Ventures – your gateway to aquatic adventures!



With so many options for exploring the region’s crystal-clear waters, there’s plenty to see and do. Follow our advice and experience magical moments at sea!

Mantra 1: Define what you want

When it comes to exploring the stunning region of Setúbal, hiring a boat rental service is the best way to make the most of the sea. With a variety of options available, from short trips to long-term rentals, from small speedboats to large catamarans, there’s something for everyone who loves the sea. Learn here how to select your nautical experience and live unforgettable moments in the stunning coastal region of the city of Setúbal. Enjoy the best of the sea with a tour or rental that suits your time and preferences.

Choose the right company for you

The Setúbal region offers several boat rental options to suit different preferences and needs.

More than 90% of the companies operate their own boats and thus try to fit their clients’ wishes into the capabilities of their boat(s) and crew.

We, Arrábida Sea Ventures, started operating this way in 2017 and it has worked very well for boat trips with a “pre-defined” itinerary. In the case of boat rental, we’ve realized that it shouldn’t be up to the client to adapt to our boat; it should be up to us to achieve a diversified offer of boats that guarantees the availability of the boat that best suits each client. To achieve this, we have moved to a “mediation” model, working in a network with 15+ local companies and guaranteeing a flexible level of service adapted to the needs of each client.

From small boats for more intimate trips to luxury yachts for larger groups, there are options for all kinds of water adventures. Setúbal is known for its stunning coastline and rich marine life. Therefore, when exploring the companies that offer boat rental in the region, visitors can find an impressive variety of vessels. Imagine sailing the calm waters of the Sado estuary on a spacious catamaran or exploring the hidden coves of the Arrábida cliffs on an elegant sailboat.

Define the ideal type of boat

When considering boat rental, it is essential to know the types available in order to choose the ideal option for your trip. In Setúbal, you can find everything from speedboats ideal for short-term rentals or diving to luxury yachts with catering and entertainment on board.

To choose the type of boat that best suits you, you need to clearly define the size of the group, the activities you want to do and the budget available. For example, if you want to try your hand at sea fishing, you can opt for a boat equipped with all the necessary tools; if you want to “just” relax, you can choose a comfortable yacht complete with spacious lounge areas.

Companies such as Arrábida Sea Ventures offer advice on selecting the “ideal” boat, a wide range of boats of all types and the possibility of renting additional equipment such as paddleboards or services such as catering, massages or entertainment.


Find the perfect option for you

When evaluating the different rental options in Setúbal, it is crucial to consider several factors before making a final booking. In addition to the specific characteristics of the boats available, aspects such as the duration of the tour, services included (such as meals or drinks), and the experience of the crew are important when looking for the perfect option.

Mantra 2: Get the best boat rental price in the region


Save on rent

When it comes to boat rental in Setúbal, it’s essential to compare prices to find the best deals. By exploring the options available, you can discover effective ways to save money without compromising the quality of the experience. A valuable tip for less experienced clients is to rent a boat with a broker. This can give you access to competitive prices and ensure a safe and smooth experience.

In addition, companies that rent out their own boats may have a limited offer in terms of specific types or sizes of vessels. Therefore, when considering direct hire with local companies, it is important to be aware of this restriction and check whether it meets individual or group needs. For example, groups with children under 12 can benefit financially by opting for a boat trip instead of direct rental.

When looking for economical ways to enjoy boat rental in Setúbal, it’s also worth exploring promotional packages offered by local companies. Often, these packages include special discounts for certain days of the week or specific times of the year. This strategy allows visitors to take advantage of lower rates without compromising the quality of the nautical experience.

Benefit from competition between local companies

Local companies often compete with each other to attract customers looking for boat rental in Setúbal by offering competitive and advantageous prices. This means that consumers have the unique opportunity to compare different offers and choose the one that best suits their needs and budget.

For example, when planning a trip with family or friends, researching different options will allow you to identify more affordable rates without giving up the features you want in the boat or the additional services offered by the company you hire. Healthy competition between local companies not only results in lower prices for consumers, but also constantly drives the development and improvement of the services provided.

Naturally, all this research takes time, and since time is money, you can always opt for a mediator to do the work for you!

Mantra 3: Choosing Between Sailboats, Speedboats and Catamarans

Features of Sailboats Available to Rent in Setúbal

The sailboats available for hire in Setúbal offer a unique sailing experience. With the capacity to accommodate smaller groups, usually up to 6 people, sailing boats are ideal for a more intimate trip along the coast. The tranquillity provided by the sail and the silence of the engine allows passengers to enjoy the coastal scenery without interruption. What’s more, the opportunity to experience an unforgettable sunset makes sailboat rental a popular choice among those seeking relaxing moments at sea.

For those who appreciate the calm and wish to contemplate the natural beauty of the region, opting for a sailboat can be a wise decision. Imagine yourself sailing gently through the crystal-clear waters while watching dolphins frolicking nearby. This is just one of the many advantages that sailing boats can offer during your rental in Setúbal.

Exploring the Coastal Region with Speedboats

If the aim is to actively explore the diverse landscapes along the Setúbal coast, then a speedboat could be the ideal choice. With capacity for groups of 4 to 9 people, the speedboats are perfect for short day trips. Its agility and speed allow it to cover greater distances in less time, making it possible to visit multiple tourist attractions along the coast.

By opting for a speedboat rental in Setúbal, you’ll have greater flexibility to see leaping dolphins or quickly drop anchor in hidden coves where you can take an invigorating dip in the crystal-clear waters of the Atlantic. The thrill and adventure offered by a speedboat guarantee exciting and memorable moments throughout your journey along the Setúbal coast.

Unique Benefits of Catamaran Sailing

If you’re planning a birthday party, bachelor party or simply want to enjoy a sunny day with your friends, renting a catamaran is definitely the best option. With capacity for up to 18 people, you’ll have plenty of room for all your guests. Imagine celebrating your birthday surrounded by crystal-clear waters, with lively music and refreshing drinks. It’s a unique experience that will surely remain in everyone’s memory. In addition, the catamaran offers a spacious and comfortable environment, with lounge areas and even a kitchen for preparing delicious snacks during the tour. You can also choose to include additional services such as a DJ or a bartender to ensure that the party is even more lively. So, if you’re looking for a fun and different way to celebrate a special event or simply relax with your friends, renting a catamaran in Setúbal is the perfect choice.

Hiring a sailor

When considering hiring Setubal boats, it is crucial to decide whether you want to hire a professional sailor to accompany you on your trip. The presence of an experienced sailor can make for a safer and more relaxed sailing experience. The sailor will not only steer the boat, but will also be able to deal with any eventualities that may arise during the journey.

Choosing to have a sailor on board means having someone who knows the local waters, including the sandbanks off the coast of Setúbal and Troia, thus requiring less caution on the part of the client. In addition, for those who wish to relax and enjoy the ride without worrying about the responsibilities of sailing, the presence of the sailor offers freedom to fully enjoy the experience.

The main advantage of hiring a professional sailor is the peace of mind it gives clients. This way, they can simply focus on enjoying the breathtaking scenery around them while leaving all the technical issues in the hands of the specialist.

On the other hand, when choosing to sail without a professional sailor, it is essential to be aware of the requirements and responsibilities involved in this decision. Depending on the type of boat you want, you may only need a seaman’s license or a local master’s license. Previous knowledge of navigation is also important or they must be willing to take full responsibility for the safe operation of the boat.

By choosing this option, autonomous navigators must be prepared to deal with any mishap that may arise at sea. This ranges from mechanical problems to unexpected situations such as sudden weather changes or difficulties navigating the challenging areas close to the local coast.

Despite the additional demands involved in autonomous navigation, some people prefer this approach for the freedom and control it offers during the ride. For those who have previous experience of piloting boats or want to experience a more independent adventure, this option can be very attractive.


Mantra 5: Prioritize Dream Destinations Accessible by Boat in Setúbal

Exploring Stunning Destinations

By renting a boat in Setúbal, you’ll have the opportunity to explore stunning destinations that are inaccessible by land. Among these destinations are the sandbanks of Troia, considered the best beaches in the region. At low tide, this mini island grows and becomes a paradise to relax and enjoy the crystal-clear waters of the ocean.

What’s more, by choosing to rent a boat in Setúbal, you’ll be able to discover secret coves and secluded grottos along the coast. These places offer a unique and exclusive experience for visitors looking for tranquillity and natural beauty. Imagine sailing through calm, crystal-clear waters while exploring hidden sea caves or relaxing on deserted beaches.

Planning an Unforgettable Trip

Boat rental in Setúbal offers the perfect opportunity to plan an unforgettable trip to paradisiacal places near the region. For example, the Sol Troia anchorage is known for the privacy it offers visitors, as well as the calm waters ideal for relaxing swims or even enjoying a cocktail on board your own boat.

Another unmissable destination accessible by boat rental is the Galapos anchorage, located near the Serra da Arrábida. This location gives access to the secluded beaches of Galapos and Galapinhos, allowing travelers to easily disembark at the beach or enjoy the amenities of the local bar and restaurant.

Even more exciting is the possibility of exploring ideal snorkeling spots such as Alpertuche beach during your trip with boat rental in Setúbal . With so many incredible destinations available only by water transport, there is no doubt about the exciting opportunities awaiting those who decide to embark on this nautical adventure.

Mantra 6: Search for the Best Beaches in Setúbal to Discover by Boat

Beaches with crystal clear waters

The beaches in Setúbal offer crystal-clear waters that are perfect for a boat trip. Imagine yourself sailing through clear waters, where you can see the bottom of the sea even some distance from the shore. The transparency of the waters offers a unique experience, especially when approaching the region’s most stunning beaches.

The beaches with crystal-clear waters in Setúbal are ideal for diving and observing marine life. The blue and green tones create a paradisiacal setting that enchants visitors. In addition, the underwater visibility allows snorkeling enthusiasts to appreciate the beauty of the reefs and colorful fish while exploring the surroundings.

Golden Sand and Breathtaking Landscapes

When sailing through the calm waters of Setúbal, visitors have the opportunity to contemplate golden sandy beaches bathed in the region’s radiant sunshine. The combination of the vibrant shades of the coastline and the rock formations creates stunning landscapes that surprise even those most accustomed to natural beauty.

This mixture of the golden sand, the intense blue of the sea and the lush green of the surrounding mountains makes each beach unique. During a boat rental in Setúbal, it is possible to find secluded coves or beaches inaccessible by land, guaranteeing exclusive moments for nature lovers.

Enjoy the Sun, Sea and Tranquillity

The possibility of discovering new paradisiacal destinations accessible only by boat adds a special dimension to sea trips in Portugal’s Setúbal region. With hidden islets and mysterious caves to explore, the boat rental experience is a real adventure for those looking to escape from everyday life and make the most of the sun, sea and tranquillity.

Mantra 7: Investigate Testimonials and the Experience of Past Renters

Real testimonials

When it comes to hiring boats in Setúbal, real testimonials from people who have already enjoyed the experience are invaluable. Many satisfied customers share their stories, highlighting the highlights of boat rental in the region. For example, some mention the freedom of exploring secluded beaches, while others emphasize the tranquility and relaxing effect provided by the sea breeze.

For example, many report the unique feeling of freedom when sailing through the region’s crystal-clear waters or exploring hidden caves along the coast. This sense of discovery is often highlighted as one of the main attractions of this type of activity.

In addition, the testimonials also usually contain useful tips for those considering renting a boat in Setúbal. From advice on the best times to avoid the crowds on the beaches to recommendations on unmissable places to anchor, this information can be extremely useful for maximizing your experience at sea.

Reading the stories of satisfied customers before making a choice can be inspiring and informative. Through these real-life testimonies, you can see the exciting possibilities offered by Setúbal boat rental before you even start the journey yourself.

Mantra 8: Important Details for Boat Hire in Setúbal

Required documents

To ensure a smooth experience when renting boats in Setúbal, it is essential to pay attention to the necessary documents. Generally, you will be asked for a valid identification document, such as a citizen’s card or passport. In addition, if you choose to rent a boat without a sailor, you will need to present a sailor’s license or other certificate proving your ability to drive the boat of your choice.

When renting a boat with crew included, passengers’ personal documents may also be requested for registration and insurance purposes. Making sure that all your documents are in order before the day of your trip will avoid unpleasant mishaps when you board the plane.

Safety rules and precautions

Even before venturing into the region’s crystal-clear waters, it is crucial to be aware of the safety rules established for boat rental. This includes familiarizing yourself with basic measures, such as the location of life jackets and buoys, as well as instructions on their proper use.

In addition, if you choose to rent a boat without a sailor, it is essential to receive clear guidance on the permitted navigable zones and any local restrictions. Knowing the possible water obstacles and prohibited areas will significantly contribute to keeping everyone on board safe throughout the tour.

Last but not least, it is important to adopt fundamental precautions when dealing with nautical equipment. Following the instructions given by the rental manager regarding the correct operation of the boat will help prevent accidental damage or dangerous situations.

You can experience unique moments such as a breathtaking sunset at sea, exciting sport fishing sessions or explore marine life by snorkeling during your boat trip.

Discovering the options available to customize your itinerary is essential. Imagine having the freedom to define the destinations you want to visit, decide how long you will spend in each place and even choose the activities that interest you the most.

By opting for a private tour when renting a boat in Setúbal, you have the unique opportunity to create unforgettable memories with friends and family. The possibility of adapting the trip to your tastes and preferences guarantees a truly tailor-made experience.

Exclusivity and Intimacy

Imagine relaxing on the bow of the boat while enjoying breathtaking panoramic views or sharing laughter and lively conversation without outside interference. What’s more, if you want special moments such as private celebrations or surprise romantic requests, the private tours provide the perfect setting for such occasions.
