This is a beautiful bay with crystal clear water and a white sandy beach. It is situated near the city of Algeciras, within the El Estrecho Natural Park, in Costa de La Luz and is a perfect full day trip.

Let's be honest and start by saying that we have actually never taken this trip, hence photos from other trips on the way and close to the bay. But we are looking forward to sailing there and what better way to experience it with you on board?

The trip will start at the time you wish but as this is a full day trip we highly recommend early morning, preferably before sunrise as this will give you a wonderful start to the day. There is something magical about sitting on deck watching the beginning of a new day, seeing the sun rise over the horizon and light up the Mediterranean. The price includes a welcome drink, and while there being many options, who can resist something chilled and bubbly while watching the sun rise?

From Sotogrande marina we will head southwest towards Europa point, the southernmost tip of Gibraltar. We will continue another 5,6 nm southwest which will take approx. 1 hour, depending on the wind, passing the Bay of Algeciras. When we are at Cala Arenas we will drop the anchor and the rest of the day is yours to swim and snorkel, or bring the dinghy to shore where you can take a relaxing walk on the white sandy beach.

When you are settled and comfortable, and the fresh sea air has built up an apetite, we will prepare  an all-inclusive buffet which you can enjoy in the saloon, in the cockpit at the Captain's table or on deck by yourself, giving you time to enjoy the tranquility of the sea.

On the brightest days we can guarantee you spectacular views of the meeting of three countries and two continents. Spain and Gibraltar in Europe and Morocco on the northern coast of Africa.We have seen whales and dolphins on numerous trips, but unfortunately we can not promise you this on your particular trip, but don't loose faith, keep a close lookout and hopefully they will show up to greet you.

If time permits, before bringing Tealie back to her berth we will take a ten minute detour and follow the canal to the inner parts of Sotogrande marina, past the luxurious and colourful apartments at the frontline of the canal.

Should you get bored just sitting around on deck and there are no whales or dolphins to watch, you are welcome to take the helm or help with the sails.

If you want to go swimming we have snorkelig gear and towels at your disposal.


Before boarding Tealie, we would like to pass on some friendly tips.
  • Even though it is warm and sunny when you board Tealie, the sea air can get humid and chilly, especially around sunset. For your own comfort, we recommend bringing a warm jumper or jacket. But not to worry, we have blankets aboard should you forget.
  • Please bring proper shoes. The deck and floor might be slippery with water and we want to avoid all accidents. Our favourite shoes are Sketchers with rubber soles but if the weather is warm enough, barefoot is a good option.
  • We have life vests for those not feeling too comfortable aboard, also for medium sized pets.
  • The all-inclusive buffet includes food and drinks, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. If you have any allergies or have some special dietary wishes or needs, please let us know.
  • If you wish to let your family and friends know where you are sailing, they can follow you by searching for TEALIE on VesselFinder or by clicking on MarineTraffic.


Motion sickness is the worst, especially wobbling on a sailboat with no immediate escape. However, if you tend to get motion sick, don't worry, there are some precautions to take before and during the trip.

Before the trip
  • Buy antihistamines, either prescription or over-the-counter, at drug stores or supermarkets. The major ones are cyclizine (Marezine) and dimenhydrinate (Dramamine). If you have children between the ages of 2 and 12, dimenhydrinate (Dramamine) or diphenhydramine (Benadryl) might be helpful. Always check with your doctor or the pharmacist, and read the label well before taking the medicine.
  • Get a scopolamine (Transderm Scop) from your doctor. It's an adhesive patch you put behind your ear a few hours before you come aboard.
  • Buy a pack of lozenges, preferably something with ginger.
  • Do not eat a big meal before boarding.
  • Lay of alcohol, caffeine and drink lots of water.
  • Bring a distraction - like music with headphones.
During the trip
  • If you brought music, listen to it as it might add some distraction.
  • Find a better spot. Many find relief by taking the helm.
  • Lie down if you can, or shut your eyes, and keep your head still.
  • Follow the horizon, don't look down or read.
  • Dry, salty crackers might help.
  • Anything with ginger, i.e. Ginger ale.

If nothing of the above helps, we will give you a bucket and head back to the marina.
