Boa Vista Catamaran Cruise

Boa Vista Catamaran Cruise

Even when you're on an idyllic tropical island like Boa Vista, it's lovely to get out on the water. Get a different perspective from the deck of your sleek sailing catamaran on this relaxed adults-only afternoon cruise – served up with ice cold drinks. Relaxation is the name of the game on this afternoon in the sea breeze. It's a great opportunity to bury yourself in a good book, or just chill out on the netted deck, working on your tan. There's a stop in a secluded bay as your vessel drops anchor and, if the mood takes you, you can take a refreshing dip in the crystal-clear waters that surround the boat.

Santa Maria Beach 2hr Quad Tour
Activities

Santa Maria Beach 2hr Quad Tour

With innumerable sandy dunes and a fairly desolate interior, Boa Vista is heaven for quad bikers. Spend two hours blasting along the island's deserted trails, with some memorable pit stops in between. You'll first receive instruction on how to handle these powerful four-wheelers then take the wheel yourself or choose a double quad and you can relax as the passenger. Then, you'll rev out of the base, headed for Cabo Santa Maria beach. Normally, the turquoise ocean and pristine sands would be the main attraction – but the show-stealer is the steel skeleton of a huge cargo ship that wrecked on the reef here in the 1960s.
