Rent one of our boats and join us for an unforgettable party! We have boats in Setúbal, Sesimbra and Tróia

Contact us with any questions, requirements or additional information

There are many types of parties, but we can divide them into two broad categories: normal parties and epic parties.

Normal parties are those held in a restaurant, living room, home or any other traditional venue. Epic events are those that take place in unusual and breathtaking locations, such as sailboats or catamarans.

From weddings or bachelorette parties, to cocktail parties, birthdays or even corporate events, there are no limits to the celebrations on board.

There is no scientific explanation, but the atmosphere on board is completely different.

It's also the perfect excuse to see your boss seasick, to blame the rocking of the boat for a series of situations that happen during the party or to surprise your loved one with a marriage proposal without worrying about her running away.

Why us?


We help you select “the boat”


We make sure you get the best price


We guarantee that the service is carried out as contracted


Is it normal for people to get seasick at sea?

It’s very rare for someone to fall ill at one of our events.

The vast majority of events take place on the River Sado or in bays along the Arrábida coast, which are very sheltered from the waves. For this reason, the boats sail smoothly, providing a great experience for all passengers.

For events off the rivers or on busier days, we always adapt the itinerary so that everyone can enjoy the cruise to the full.

If you suffer from chronic motion sickness, where you get seasick even in the car, we recommend taking one tablet 30 minutes before boarding.

Can I add extra hours to the program during the event?

Yes, it is possible, as long as the boat, crew and staff are available.

It’s always safer to hire overtime in advance.

Is there a time limit for the event?

Events can be held at any time of the day or night.

The only limitation is noise if the boat is moored at the dock. If you want to have a party with unlimited sound and entertainment, just set sail.

Are the hours pre-set or is there flexibility?

The schedule is entirely chosen by the client and naturally depends on the availability of the boat.

What is the maximum capacity of the boats?

The maximum capacity is not flexible and refers to the total number of people your group can hold, including babies and children.

Is it possible to stop at a beach for a swim?

Yes, of course!

If you want to dive, you must choose a duration of 3 hours or more and it is dependent on the crew’s approval.

The routes shown are suggestions. If you wish, it can be set by you, as long as the contracted duration and the weather and sea conditions allow it.

Can I play my song?

All boats have a Bluetooth or USB connection (check on each boat’s page) where you can connect a device to listen to your music throughout the boat.

Is there a catering service on board? Can I bring my own?

All our boats available for parties have catering menus that you can add to the boat rental.

However, on some boats it is also possible to bring your own food and drink (see conditions on each boat).
Red drinks are not allowed.

If you want to bring food or drinks, you should also bring all the necessary support material (glasses, plates, napkins, etc.).

Where is the boarding point?

The meeting point is indicated on each boat’s page, as well as in the confirmation emails. Arrive at least 15 minutes before departure time.

We recommend that you stick to the timetable, as a delay at the beginning is not necessarily compensated for at the end.

Do the weather conditions affect the tour?

If weather and sea conditions put the safety of the boat and participants at risk, the trip will be postponed or canceled. In this case, the user will be entitled to a full refund. If you wish to postpone for other reasons, we will always try to do so at the lowest possible cost.

What do I have to do to rent a boat?

I found the tour without a life jacket and without support for people who feel sick on the boat to be irresponsible.

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!!! ❤️

We had a super fun time on board. The crew was so nice and explained a lot about the history and the area. We really enjoyed the tour- even that the weather wasn’t that sunny- great all over experience.

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!

Wow - what can I say? Thank you, thank you thank you! Quite simply one of the best days we ever had - made extra special by the thoughtful tailoring of the day to the needs of our very mixed group, wonderful hosting by the crew, and a wonderful boat. It was just so much fun!

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.
