Anchor in the legendary harbor of Horta, Faial. This marina, a canvas of colorful maritime tales painted on its walls, is a rite of passage for ocean wanderers. Leave your mark among the myriad of sea stories adorning the harbor walls. Explore Peter’s Sport Café, an iconic sailor’s haunt, steeped in 80 years of seafaring history.

Sail to Pico, an island piercing the skies with its volcanic peaks. The challenging sail is a testament to your skill, steering through the unpredictable whims of the Atlantic. On land, the rugged landscapes and vineyards provide a stark contrast to the deep blue sea.

Your journey continues to São Jorge, an elongated island of verdant cliffs and hidden coves. Here, balance your time between exploring the quaint fishing villages and mastering the craft of sailing in these mesmerizing waters.
