Madeira Pirate Boat

Sea the BestOne of the most photographed boats or ship, is the Santa Maria de Colombo, otherwise known as the Pirate Ship, which is the exact replica of Christopher Columbus boat, build in 1998.

This trip has an adventures feeling about it, as one can almost feel how it was when the island was discovered 500 odd years ago.

The boat also goes out twice a day and covers the same route as the catamaran which also stops at the bottom of Cabo Girão (The highest sea cliff in Europe), for a swim.
