Nestled in the Atlantic Ocean and known for its famous anticyclone, the Azores are a true paradise still visited little by tourists. This archipelago with landscapes as diverse as they are lush, is composed of 9 islands. Explore the archipelago's treasures at your own pace. Visit to UNESCO World Heritage Site, see wildlife living free, hike the crater of a volcano, relax in a natural hot spring water, or just feel the peace of following the wind and being part of nature. Join us for an incredible trip of relaxation and discovery.

    Sailing with André&Rita in the Azores was one of my best holidays ever! I've already been on a sailingtrip with André in the Cyclades, so i knew going on another sailingtrip with André will be fun, chilling on the deck, intense, jumping in the sea on amazing spots, expect the unexpected and safe, André takes really good care of you, thanks André!
    That combined with the great cook and sweet person sailor Rita is, just perfect! Thanks Rita! 5 star meals aboard, local fresh food from the Azores, jummie, fresh fish from the Ocean catched and prepared by André&Rita.
    Sailing around these beautifuls islands, stunning landscapes, sailing between 200 dolphins, jumping in and snorkeling between dolphins, hearing there noises,.... I was really astonished by all the 6 islands we went too. There are all so different. Azores are a hidden secret, paradise! And how can you discover them better then going on a sailing trip with a local :-) Thanks a lot André&Rita for this dreamvacation! Els xxx

    Thank you so much to Andre and Rita for the amazing trip around the Azores. My family and I had the time of our lives with the beautiful sights of the Atlantic Ocean as well as indulging in the culture of Portugal on land. The trip would not have been the same without them and the hospitaly they gave to us. If you are looking for a trip that will change your life this is it.

    One of the funnest and most unique trips I've ever been on! Andrés and Rita are amazing and gave me and my group so many cool experiences that I'll never forget - seeing dolphins, beautiful hiking and trying amazing new food being just a few of them. The spontaneous way the trip is run was really relaxing and made everything a fun surprise! Loved every minute of it and already dying to go back next year :)
