The Algarve, beside being a popular holiday destination for ocean and beach lovers, is also an attraction for party people. Cities like Albufeira and Lagos are known for their bubbly nightlife. These cities attract party people from all round the world, all year round. There are several party boat tours in the Algarve and we found the best one: the party boat in the Algarve that departs from Albufeira.
I joined four friends to discover this party boat in the Algarve. This boat party departs from the modern Marina of Albufeira. The Marina is very easily accessible and you can park for free in the underground parking lot.
Of course we had reserved our spots via SeaBookings.com, so once we arrived at the check-in spot for the party boat in the Algarve, we only had to mention our name. After checking-in, we still had some time to grab a drink on the cozy terrace of the Marina.
The party boat in the Algarve
When it was time for boarding, we were called by the friendly crew. The boat was totally booked but there was still enough space to lay on the deck and enjoy some sun or to dance. The people on the boat were mainly aged between 25 and 35 years old. The main nationalities that were present among the party people were Spain, France, Portugal and the Netherlands. All were party people looking for an unforgettable afternoon with great music on a stunning boat.
At 18h30 the boat was ready to depart. We settled on the upper deck, where we found a comfortable space to put our bags and flipflops. The music started to play. Miguel, the DJ was playing the best house tunes of this summer. The music suited the stunning scenery of the coast of the Algarve perfectly.
The party boat in the Algarve takes three hours out of which the first hour is “open bar”. This means that in the first hour of the boat party in Albufeira, you can drink unlimited beer, sangria and soft drinks. After that hour, drinks are very affordable, around 2€ for a beer and 3€ for a sangria.
We sat on the upper deck and went to get our drinks two by two. As the rhythm of the music was inviting for a dance, we went to the deck downstairs. Here there was enough space to dance while enjoying the beautiful sights of the coast of the Algarve.
It was a warm summer day and the temperatures, even around sunset, were high. The good news was that, to refresh, we jumped into the water of the blue Atlantic. The water felt great. Almost everybody got into the water. A lot of fun.
The three hours of the boat party went by super fast as we cruised along the coastline while the sunset created stunning colors in the sky. Everytime we came along another boat, the crowd went crazy, singing, dancing and putting the hands in the air to greet the other boats.
Before we realized, it was already almost 23h and we had to go back into the Marina of Albufeira. When the boat docked, we realized how hungry we were and we grabbed something to eat before we went home. Some of the other party animals decided to carry on the party and used their bracelets to get into one of the clubs of Albufeira.
Overall, the four of us agreed: this is the best party boat in the Algarve. It’s the perfect vessel to host an event like this. The party has a good sound system with great music. The bar works perfectly. The crew is very nice and the environment aboard was just amazing! Next year, we’ll be back!
