Name of company
Type of activity
Water sports, flyboarding, jet skis, powerboat rental and quad bike rental/tours.
What makes it special?
I tried the flyboarding - a water jetpack which supplies propulsion to thrust the rider upwards and allow you to ‘fly’ in the air. The first time I got propelled out of the water, I felt a bit like Superman! It’s an exhilarating and exciting feeling. As the session goes on, you can start to do dolphin dives and show off to your friends a bit.
Where do you participate in this activity?
The headquarters are at Portimao harbour but the team will meet you at the outer Marina on the boat.
Got to see/do?
Try to dive in and out of the water - it’s a great sensation.
On the boat you will be provided with a wet suit should you wish to wear one, and a life jacket and helmet, both of which are mandatory. Sitting on the edge of the boat, your feet will get strapped into the boots and you slide into the sea. You should come dressed for the occasion, wear swim gear and bring a towel. I’d recommend bringing something to record the event too.
Once you’re in the water, you swim out to the side of the jet ski where you will receive training. It’s basic but comprehensive and I would suggest that anyone could join in, as long as you’re not scared of heights or water.
Why do you like it?
I love being in the sea and on boats, so this was a no-brainer for me. If you enjoy sports, adrenaline, water or just having fun, I would recommend it! A great activity to enjoy with friends.
What could be improved?
I personally feel that it would be advantageous to have the safety briefing on the boat, which perhaps could also have some shade: you’re out at sea for some time, and the boat is totally exposed.
When to go?
This is a seasonal activity due to the location. Legislation dictates that it must take place outside the sea walls, making it challenging in rough weather.
There are no refreshments offered although you can easily eat/drink in one of the many bars/restaurants on the Marina.
If you have a natural flair for sports or skiing, you’ll be flying in no time!
In conjunction with sister company ProRent, Angel Pilot also offers rental of boats, jet skis, scooters and quad bikes.

Minimum of 4 people per trip but you can obviously join in with others. Just contact the office for availability.
