      Great boat ride!
      We walked above the site in the morning, and booked the tour then for 11:30 the same day. The directions were easy to follow to the train station at the marina (where the office is) and they took care of the rest! Good guide and captain, informative and enjoyable, and the whole way from Lagos marina to Ponta de Piedade the view to shore was beautiful. The guide gave information throughout that was interesting and fun. We thought it was well worth the cost and easy to do.

      Spectacular
      We had a great boat ride with Stefan and George. As it was February and low season there were no others who had booked the ride but still it wasn't cancelled. Very special to come up so close to the rocks and cliffs and into small coves. Its a beautiful coast line and wonderful to see it from the sea. We recommend this trip with BlueFleet without any reservations.

      The tour was excellent, the boat was small and clean, the staff was super friendly. And of course the Algarve rocks and caves spectacular. I would recommend this company in a heartbeat.

      Good but crowded with boats and Kayaks
      The staff was friendly and spoke good English. We enjoyed the boat trip but the areas were crowded with too many boats, especially kayakers. Blue Fleet is not responsible for the crowding but someone will need to step in to reduce the number of boats in this area. We were here five years ago and it was much more enjoyable without so many boats and no kayakers. It seems inevitable that there will be accidents or damage to the environment from so many boats.

      Such a great experience, laughter from start to end, we left punctually and it was a nice day. The boys Antonio and Stephano were so good and really funny, they told us all about the local area and the gave us lots of tips on places to visit, walk, hike and eat! Such nice lads! And the lady in the office was very sweet too! We would highly recommend this experience!

      Boat tour to majesty!
      Captain Antonio and Fea were so amazing! We went in under tunnels in the rock formations and even got to see a cave that is not always accessible. The rocks were intensely beautiful for their last trip of the day. Thank you for a lifetime experience and let me know when you make it to the United States Fea! :)

      Beautiful
      The boat felt very stable, which was something I was a little worried about going on the sea, but not for a minute did I get nervous. Life jackets were given before you even got on the boat, another +. There was a boat operator and tour guide - sadly can’t remember there names but Antonio I think is one of them. We asked for English speaking and got what we asked for, with a touch of an accent but still easy to understand. The tour itself was FABULOUS. Things pointed out to us, through caves, hill formations and sites to see pointed out, and any questions were easily answered.Overall we loved it and would suggest my family and friends to take it as well.

      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!

      A Must do with this Team.
      What a great experience with this group. First, Rita was so awesome to deal with. We had to rebook because of bad weather and she made it seamless. Second, the captain, Bruno, and the tour guide, Steven. The skills and information they have are top of the line. They were so entertaining and Bruno is one very talented driver. Mind blowing good!

      Plenty of amazing land and coastal photo opportunities. Staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Need to keep an eye on weather. Can be a choppy ride if the winds and waves picks up.

      Highly recommend. A ‘no-brainer’ to take this very nice tour. Beautiful close-up views of amazing caves, rock formations, and beautiful beaches. Tour guide and boat driver were extremely professional. We learned a lot in an entertaining way. Very efficient…your time is not wasted but you also don’t feel rushed. Good bang for the $ buck! Fun and very well organized.

    Awesome tour. We booked last min and could only get onto the afternoon tour. I read that chances of seeing the dolphins was best in the morning so didn’t have much hope. The guide also play down the chances by saying the nature is the boss! But there was a lot of dolphins, about ten of them that did a lot of stunt for us like diving, jumping, side twist, so we are delighted. These are bottle nose dolphins. Apparently they are not as social as common dolphins. The wave was quite strong and the boat trip itself was choppy and thrilling. Seeing so many dolphins was icing on the cake! Good value for money.

Our team gives their best to provide quality and safety, dispite of sea and weather conditions and spoting dolphins also makes our day. Kind Regards, Rita Rio

    Wonderful informative experience with Katerina and the skipper. We got a great view of a pod of dolphins and their baby and really interesting information about them from Katerina….. the boat was well equipped and modern and we felt very safe. This is the best company for these type of trips and their meeting point within the train station is relaxing and convenient just away from the chaos of the marina…. We’d definitely recommend this trip!

Upon the Dolphin Watching activity the skippers always make a great effort to spot the mammals and then provide an experience full of remarkable moments. Our meeting point is conveniently located inside the Train Station, whcih allows the costumers to shelter themselves until departure time. We are very costumer-oriented and like to keep our guests as comfortable as possible not only in the check-in moment, but also within the experience provided.

    Thanks, Ceasar and Inga for a wonderful tour on the catamaran! We saw, close-up, beautiful cliffs, grottos and beaches. I don't want to forget how you gave us all a choice between swimming off the boat or seeing dolphins. The entire group said dolphins. You think the dolphins were a part of a rehearsed act because they were so many sightings. At times they were jumping out of the water.

    The tour is not something I will forget!

    Hello, Thank you for your kind words and 5 star evaluation. Although it is not part of the Coastal Cruise experience to watch dolphins,whenever it is possible the skippers always like to provide that bonus on the trip. Nothing is rehearsed, just mammals on their natural habitat. Kind Regards, Rita Rio

    John, our marine biologist and our Captain were so very welcoming and genuinely did their best to ensure we got as up close and personal with pods of the common dolphins and they even found a small pod of bottlenose dolphins. There was a baby and mother in this pod, it was a wonderful sight to see them leap and dive together. The trip was super informative as John told us all about the dolphin lifestyle and answered our questions. I would highly recommend this trip, the boat was fab, the length of time perfect and the crew seemed to enjoy taking us all out as much as we enjoyed the experience. It was a thumbs up from my whole family.

    Excellent day out on the water with 2 wonderful guides. They were determined that we should see dolphins and we did. They covered a great amount of territory to find them, but were successful — we observed a pod of ~30 dolphins swimming and performing playfully ~12 kms off the coast. It was so much fun! The ride is a bit rough, but so worth it when you see the dolphins.

    My boyfriend and I went out for a 9:30am dolphin watching trip and it was amazing. The staff were friendly, charismatic, and knowledgeable about the area and the animals. just when I thought we would only be getting a fun boat ride, the dolphins made their appearance. It was breath taking watching them dance around our boat to play with the propeller and in the waves behind the boat. They came close to the front and sides of the boat so everyone got a great view. Even though their we other boats in the area watching, the dolphins didn’t interact with them they way they did with ours. To finish it of, we cruised along the coast home and stopped in a cave. I can’t recommend the tour enough.

    The trip itself was amazing. We saw several dolphins and the boat ride was really fun. I’m giving this two stars though because of how unprofessional one of the staff was. He was very clearly eyeing my friend and I at check-in and then went out of his way after the trip to look up her personal information and text her. This is so inappropriate and as two young girls traveling alone, it made us feel very unsafe knowing he now had our personal information.

    Our trip was great. Everything with Bluefleet went fine and we enjoyed the tour. At first I thought we won't see any dolphins because it took us a 30 min ride till we were that far offshore to get close to them.
    I was really happy that it was not too crowded and the boats (3 all together) didn't chase the dolphins. They were swimming around us and had no fear or felt uncomfortable so they stayed a while with us before swimming somewhere else.

    I did enjoy a wonderful time with bluefleet. I was impressed how passionated the guide and the skipper where. They where so heartful, with a big knowledge and we did saw Dolphins and Wales… I felt very safe and comfortable. They where also very careful with the animals, holded a good distance and still enough close to have this great experience and good photos. Thankyou so much for this wonderful experience.

    We had an amazing time. Dolphins swam around the boat, jumped and raced. We saw about 20 dolphins and they stayed with us for quite a while. The water is very clear so we got some great pictures of dolphins in the water. Many thanks to John and Reggie!
