Overview
More
Daily two 4 hour trips from 11:00 to 15:00 and 15:30 to 19:30. – 65,- Euros pp. min. 4 passengers uptil 11. You can also do a full day – 110,- Per Person Experience a fun filled day. With this charter there is the time – and the space – to experience the real sailing. The exact course depends on the wind, tide and weather, but of course I can try to fulfil your wishes, like following the coast for example towards Marbella or look for dolphins in the direction of Gibraltar. Aboard ´the lonely star´ you will find all the things needed to make your charter adventure relaxing and enjoyable. The ship has a large swimming platform and ladder, fresh water shower, comfortable seating, refrigeration, comfortable cabin with galley. Masks, snorkels, fins and lifejackets are provided. Refreshments include free cold soft drinks, water, wine and beer. We can drop anchor and provide a light lunch – some cheese, ham, tuna salad and bread. We have a few extra options for you: -We could take the dinghy and sail to our favorite beach restaurant – La Floria, you will have an excellent lunch/dinner here with all kinds of fresh grilled or fried fish and excellent meat. -When you bring the fish or meat yourself we can have a barbecue on board. Perfect for days with little wind! -If you are thinking about having a stag or hen party, you might consider having one at sea, if needed we can arrange for a second boat to join. -If you are sick of the jellyfish on the beaches, come with us, out on the open sea there aren´t any! If you prefer a windy day let us know and we will find the best day for you!

Hi Julian, thank you for your kind comment and hope to see you again some day! It is like I said upfront, the best day to see dolphins is a calm one. Downside is that sailing will be difficult. Thank you, Robert
