      Pleasant trip
      We enjoyed the boat trip. We were happy the boat was not crowded the day we went. We saw another day that there were many more people. Parking was difficult in the area so allow more time to park before the boat trip.

      Great kayak tour
      Very professional and very nice people at Discover Tour. Only thing that could be better is that the guide needs to talk louder when sitting in the kayak.

      Good fun, good quality boat and good staff
      L.s, We enjoyed the boat, staff, the landscape. After a return to Lagos since 1998...We now had time, budget and good weather. Suitable for kids, teens, grown ups, seniors (of course it still is a boat, certain fitness and freedom of movement is requiered). We spend a very nice time on board. Good staff, nice weather, mixed crowd, from little kids untill seniors. Was a nice way to see the magnificent coast and pont da piedade. And Discover tours has nice relaxed time table, 4 hours, gives you plenty of time for looking, swimming, lunch. Gets my recommendation. On our tour we had a very friendly and attentive crew. Thanks again for the lively trip.

      A fabulous trip for all the family!
      A truly fabulous trip with a 14,12 and 4 year old! The older two loved diving from the boat and paddle boarding. The little one loved bouncing on the “trampolines” and driving the boat!! Captain Georgio could not have been more fun and welcoming… our little girl was scared of boats before this trip and that fear has now vanished! Thanks Georgio and your crew for taking us on a fabulous trip with the most beautiful scenery, best fun for the kids and even a sangria for mum and dad! Great value and could not recommend more!

      The crew were fantastic. Explaining everything clearly and made the whole experience for us and the kids unforgettable. The boat was spotless, spacious and perfect for our needs. The crew kept us entertained and with their excellent English, answered all of our questions. An excellent day. Thank you.

      Great option for a quick way to see grottos
      The Discover 1 hour trip is a great option to see the grottos if you don’t want to be on a boat for hours or have a tendency to get seasick. The small motor boat can go right inside with the swell - there were adrenaline moments which the kids loved

      A lovely time in Lagos
      WHat a lovely crew we had! The crew spotted a fin whale and we were able to track it for a good 30 minutes- everyone was excited as they only catch a glimpse of one once or twice a year. I spilled some red wine on myself and the crew was SOOO helpful and sweet. Would REALLY recomend them!

      Catamaran private tour
      The tour was amazing. We had a fantastic time with a crew. The catamaran was at our disposal for 3hours. We saw the best of the coast between Portimão and one of the most beautiful beach Praia Marinha. Thank you for this experience.

      Amazing adventure
      This was an incredible adventure looking for dolphins in the sea in front of Lagos. 3 hours and a half well spent, Nuno and the rest of the crew were amazing, and as far as I can tell this business is very respectful of the wildlife (a marine biologist is on board all the time).

      Give yourself a treat!
      This was a wonderful way to see the southwestern cost of Portugal! The crew were knowledgeable and very willing to indulge my geological and historical questions, the lunch snack was fresh and tasty and the time in the water a terrific diversion for a bunch of kid-like adults!

      Pleasant Boat ride
      I went with my family and brought my young toddler with me and it was fun. I hoped to see a better close up view of the cliffs and caves but the sea was quite choppy and windy so I understand it was out of the operator's control. The place they took us swimming was at a river mouth and a pretty dangerous to swim due to the strong current. Other than that we still had a great time and the staff were lovely and we enjoyed meeting others on the boat. Would recommend!

    While the crew was great, the experience was not. The cruise was scheduled for 3 1/2 hours; we spent almost three hours looking for dolphins and found one which most of us weren't able to see. We spent the rest of the time searching, boating in rough waters at high speeds. Several of the guests were sick and most were miserable as the ride was cold and very bumpy. Finally, the captain offered to show us the rocks/caves near the shore after they determined there would be no dolphins that day. They offered us the opportunity to join them on the same trip the next day, but we were leaving town. Honestly, I felt like I paid a lot of money to be miserable and they should have either cancelled the trip (given the weather) or offered us a refund. We were offered a snack at the end, but not anything to drink, which I thought was included. I would say don't waste your time. Take one of the smaller boats out to see the caves.

    Hi there, thank you for your time in sending us your feedback. Indeed sometimes the sea can be somewhat wavy as we are located in the Northern Atlantic. Wind factor also can make it more choppy. These are factors beyond our control but we are fortunate that Lago's Coast is most of the times very peaceful and calm. On this day despite our best efforts some passengers were seasick as some people are more prone to motion sickness than others. Wildlife is always moving around specially dolphins. We spent 3 hours looking for them which is twice the time other tour operators spent. It's well advertised by Viator that only a snack is included. We sincerely apologize if that wasn't clear enough for you when you purchase your ticket. We also offered you a second chance to try and find the dolphins which you refused. There was little more we could to make up for not spotting the Dolphins on that occasion. Our offer is still valid if you decide to join us for another cruise. Kindest regards, Discover Tours.

    It took us a bit of time to find dolphins, but it was well worth the wait. We saw 2 small dolphins first and then 30 min later a group of about 15. We had enough time to stop for a swim on the way back which was great fun (we jumped from the boat's top level and also used the inflatable slide. The team was very friendly and gave us interesting facts about dolphins. The ride was very smooth, the boat is fast but not speed boat fast which was great with kids.

    We were warmly welcomed by a charming crew on a sunny morning. First we were looking for dolphins 🐬 and we saw so much of them playing and jumping around the boat. Additionally, we also saw some turtles 🐢.
    Later we had the chance to swim at the coast, near the beach, and got some tasty snacks.
    Overall we had a beautiful trip 😃 meant for every age!

    Great day out. Staff were brilliant and friendly. Really went out of there way to make sure we saw as many dolphins as possible. Daughter got some brilliant footage of them swimming in front of the boat.
    Then a stop near shore for some great fun swimming off of the boat. Kids and adults loved the slide. Highly recommend doing this tour

    Fantastic experience. The crew were really informative, friendly and welcoming and it's done really respectfully. We saw a pod of very playful dolphins and spent a good hour and a half with them before heading back to shore. The inflatable slide went down very well! Would highly recommend 👌 excellent value for money

    Great trip out with children from 2 -16. The crew were friendly and informative. Adults and children all enjoyed the inflatable slide and jumping from the top of the boat. We saw lots of dolphins on our morning trip. The cookies and fruit snack went down well. There was a bar on board with snacks and drinks. We sat at the front of the boat which seemed to be a prime spot for seeing the dolphins.

    I can highly recommend this amazing trip. We saw 4 pods of dolphins one of which had approx 100 dolphins in it. They swam all around the boat and even showed off a calf. The team are fantastic, they are friendly and having a biologist on board made it so informative. The snack was delicious and the swim off the boat fun and refreshing. Loved it! Thank you so much x

    The best dolphin trip I have done. We spent ages with the dolphins and learnt so much from the guide. Boat was more comfortable than the speed ones you often see, and the tour lasted longer. Was great to anchor up by the cliffs and watch people on the slide too. This company are v professional and this trip made our holiday thank you. Great value for money too.

    We where tinking about a dolfin watching tour and found discover tours. You dont go with little ribs (boats) like the other tours but with a big catamaran like ship. We had the luck to see a group of dolphins that liked to play with the bow waves on front of the ship and stayed long with us (a magical experience). On the ship where 2 toilets and refridgerated drinks. Big thumbs up for the crew 👍👍👍👍👍. They will see us again the next time we are here

    Such an amazing day out. We saw so many Dolphins swimming in their natural habitat. The crew were incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. We were a group of 8 (4 adults and 4 children) and all have said it was the best day out.

    We also did their grotto tour earlier in the holiday which was 5 out of 5. Amazing memories made thanks to Discover.
