About Us

The Harfang Spirit

We are sea-people (almost fish), passionate by the Portuguese coast, Azores and its beatiful Santa Maria island. ​

Mr. Nuno Alexandre is the skipper and captain.

Nuno is an olimpic class sailor and he spent more than 30 years at sea.

He is a professional sailor, teacher, regatta man, Ocean Master Skipper and Padi Scubadiver.

Besides speaking several languages, Nuno also knows the sea like the palm of his hands, and that is why he respects it so much.
