      Unforgettable
      What a magical outing fantastically led by Sebastian and Bruno, the dolphins were out in abundance and gave me an experience I’ll never forget, didn’t quite manage to catch one jumping out of the water but brilliant footage of the pods we saw which I’ve shared to Facebook, well done lads you were ace, I thoroughly recommend this trip and this team, bravo!

      An Amazing Day on the Water!
      This tour was outstanding! Our guide and skipper was Luís. He is a wonderful host. I cannot say enough good things about him! We learned a lot about the grottoes as well as about the region. We weee able to spot a couple of rare, white dolphins as well. I highly recommend the private tour. Many people were on the other boats and they followed each other like a fleet. Luis was able to get us to the sites without jamming together. My wife and I had the time of our lives.

      Best boat trip in Lagos.
      Last year we had a boat trip to Ponta da Piadade and now we went to Benagil with the BlueFleet. Both trips were very nice and a good host with humor on board. We had booked a trip, but due to the weather forecast they called us two days before departure and advised to go on another day. Good service.... According to the B&B owner where we stayed, BlueFleet is also good for their staff.

      Best adventure in Lagos
      I had already both tours with BlueFleet. Once the cave tour and today the dolphins. Both times just blew me away. This stunning nature with the paradise beaches in combination with the passion the guides explain everything is just more than worth it. I will do it more times!

      Amazing Tour!
      We chartered a private tour with Louis and John and had an amazing experience. Both guides were incredibly knowledgeable and made us feel so welcome on board the boat. We got to see amazing views of the beautiful coast and got right up close to many cliffs and caves. They even took us on a surprise adventure to another nearby area. This experience was absolutely a highlight of our entire vacation!

      Incredible Trip!
      I spent my birthday on this half day tour, and it was well worth it! The boat was very nice and comfortable, views were stunning, food was delicious and crew was fabulous! The crew sang happy birthday and made my day extra special. The wine was also very nice. We were able to swim for a bit and relax while anchored. We even saw dolphins on our boat ride back.

      Our private tours was excellent
      Highly recommended, the guides were awesome. We had Marta and Raquelle They were just great, easy to get along with, very informative and wow, the women can drive a boat. There were some waves, but we still went I into the little nocks and cranies. The tour was buetiful. I'd would give them 10 stars if I could.

      One word: AMAZING! Such a welcoming and knowledgeable crew who made us feel safe, at ease and never silly for squealing out loud when we saw a dolphin (this was me!)! In the end we saw tens of them as well as a cheeky trip back near the caves. Unforgettable and would do it all again 😊

      Great tour
      This was a very well organized, professional trip. The guide was great and they did a great job maximizing your time on the water. We booked a relatively short trip (2hrs and 15 min) and we got started exactly on time and ended exactly on time. The views were great and we thought it was more fun than Benagil, which seemed busier with relatively the same scenery.

      A nice boat trip along the coast + swimming
      We visited Lagos in the end of May 2023, when the weather was not too hot and the ocean's water was already warm enough to swim. We decided to take a coast boat trip and chose the BlueFleet because they were close to our hotel. On the day of the trip we assembled at the train station and we went to the marina. The boat was big enough for all of us, it was looking very nice and well-maintained. The captain and the guide were very friendly. We took a coast cruise with the possibility to swim in the ocean. That was a very wise decision. During the trip the guide (who speaks many different languages) told us a lot about the history of Lagos, its old fortress,named all beaches and showed interesting rock formations. But the most interesting was getting with a boat into very narrow caves, where we were completely surrounded by rocks. The captain was very skillful! When we were on the way back, the captain stopped the boat at a beautiful location and let everyone to have a swim. The boat was equipped with a ramp that allowed to get in and out of the water without an effort. I took a diving mask and enjoyed the swim very much. At the same time the guide offered refreshments to those who decided not to swim in 18 C water. Overall, the trip was excellent and the personnel was very friendly and took care about the guests the best possible way. Thank you, BlueFleet!

    All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Booking online was easy.

    Overall, the boat ride to the grottos was enjoyable, but I was hoping for it to be a bit better. It was pretty crowded with other boats, kayaks, etc. We didn't stay long at each stop and it was difficult to get good photos. We also were told it was 1.15 hours but the total trip barely was a full hour. With that said, this is probably comparable to any boat company in Lagos and not specific to Blue Fleet.

    In general, I would recommend them for the boat trip with the caveats I outlined above.

    Hello, Thank you for your feedback and evaluation. I are very gratefull to know that you have enjoyed the experience provide in overall. Regarding the fact the grottoes were crowded, as you may imagine it is not BlueFleets' responsability and it might by considered as tip to other costumers looking for trips to avoid certain schedules, were this could be more frequent. As for the trip extension, please note that you have to start counting from the moment the boat epart from the pontoon. Nevertheless, it will be taken in consideration so that we get even better in what we do. Thank you for choosing BlueFleet! Kind Regards, Rita Rio

    Our family of four went with Luis and Margarida on the Grotto Tour from Lagos. The natural beauty of the area is stunning, but what made this trip was our hosts! Luis and Margarida were knowledgeable and friendly, but were also hilarious. They had great energy and kept us entertained the entire time. We felt very safe with Luis driving and navigating the difficult terrain, and their knowledge of the area added a lot of color to the trip. They had a lot of good recommendations for sights to see in the area, beaches to visit, restaurants for lunch (Margarida recommended a local fish restaurant and even walked us there after..it was delicious). We visited Cabo Sao Vicente at sunset at Luis's recommendation, as well as Praia Canavial, and those two spots were highlights of our stay in Lagos. I can't recommend this trip enough!

    Our guide was wonderful (sorry can't remember her name). She explained in detail what we were seeing. If a person didn't recognize the shape - e.g. camel rock - she would come over and show exactly where to view. The other passengers had 2 little kids and both the captain and guide were very kind to them letting them play in the boat. Would highly recommend this company for a good trip,

    Tips: It can we warm going to ponta da piedade but trip back gets cold so carry a sweatshirt or jacket.

    We had a great time on this adventure. Loved that there was only 6 of us. The history was great. The boat driver surprised us all with his skills- driving through some of the spaces didn’t look easy. Would recommend this tour for someone who didn’t feel like kayaking or going all day- 1 hour was just the right amount.

    This was the perfect trip for my 13 year old daughter and me - not too fast, not too sedate, not too short and not too long! BlueFleet is prompt and well organized - we met them at the train station and they quickly divided everyone into small groups and walked us to the pier. The tour is a lot of fun - stunning views of the cliffs and caves. Our guide was friendly and kind and engaged everyone there. Absolutely recommend!

    If I could rate my sunset cruise with Miguel higher than 5/5 I would! My daughter and I both agreed it was a highlight of our 3 week holiday in Portugal. Miguel was deeply knowledgeable and genuinely passionate about the stunnning Ria Formosa and soon all of us on the cruise (6 in total) were sharing his excitement. He explained the history of this unique area and its ecological importance, the tides and the various species of birds and crabs. He gave us sufficient time to explore both destinations: 1 hour on Desert Island and 1 hour in Farol, after imparting the history of each location. His commentary and perspective was always interesting and we were thrilled we'd chosen this particular cruise over all the others on offer. To top off the night Miguel waited for the sun to truly set before driving us back so we could take photos and really feel the 'magic' of nature in the Ria Formosa, ensuring that our experience would be unforgettable.

    Boat trip to the sea grottos
    We went on this tour in November. At this time of the year, you wouldn’t have to book in advance, but since we were traveling from Tavira to Lagos just for the experience, we booked ahead of time. The tour was conducted in both English and Spanish to accommodate the people aboard. We traveled out of the channel, and then along the coast. The soft sandstone has eroded into a series of remarkable sea caves. Our skipper was skilled in navigating the tricky currents swirling through the caves, the shallow rock strewn sea floor, and the other boats traversing the same path. The
    Ponta da Piedade is beautiful, and the day was mild. Our trip back was exciting with more speed, swerves, and splashes. I would certainly recommend taking this trip. If we come at a warmer time of the year, I would also try a kayak tour.

    This was a lovely boat rides to the caves. The driver skilfully manoeuvred into several smaller caves to get spectacular views from the inside. The guide offered interesting commentary on what we saw. They were both very pleasant and cheerful, creating a nice atmosphere. This was certainly a must do activity.

    We took the 1:30pm ride, which was the last opportunity to go inside at least one of the caves due to the tide.

    Such an amazing trip! The tour guides were very knowledgeable and made us laugh the whole time.
    They know a lot about the history of Lagos, I highly recommend this tour! It’s a lot more cost effective than other options and a smaller boat so more intimate! We had a great time. If you get cold easily bring an extra jacket! We are Canadian so even going in February this was nice and warm for us.
