AMAZING! Do not leave Portugal without going on this boat tour. Our captain was amazing. So friendly and fun, and his boating skills were so impressive! I couldn’t believe some of the places he took us. We literally said, “No way are we seriously going in there?!” about 10 times ☺️ That being said, we always felt 100% safe with him and the scenery is absolutely breathtaking. Yes, that sounds cheesy but once you see it you’ll agree!

My friend and I did the afternoon sailing (August 29, 2022) which was fine, it was still hot. The crew was great. Bartender, she can sure mix a mean drink . Upbeat music playing in the background. Crew provided quite a bit of equipment if you wanted to hit the water besides to swim like paddle boards. Stunning coastline. I'll miss that the most. Would definitely take with them again.

Great tour of the caves and rocks on the southern coast of Portugal at Lagos. Our guide was fluent in English, French and Portuguese which was impressive. He offered all kinds of local anecdotes about the rocks and caves we were touring and the boat driver was highly skilled, getting in and out of tight spaces without a scrape. Very professional and enjoyable.

Luis greeted us at the meeting point. He must be the owner because he was great. Funny and extremely helpful. Made us feel very welcomed. He introduced us to Jorge our captain and Inez. They were very friendly. Jorge was a professional navigating the boat through the caves and around the rocks. Thank you so much.

Jack is really funny guy. Orgazation was great, perfect experience.
