We are family of 5 with children aged 4 and 10. The staff were very accommodating and couldn’t have been better in many ways!!

We went first on a morning trip at 09:30. Wow!! We saw literally hundreds of Dolphins, at one point we had around 15 dolphins swimming with the boat. It was just magical. The guides knew exactly where to go and were knowledgable and gave us a really good experience.

It was that good we went and booked again for another day!

The next time we went for the trip at 11:30, unfortunately the weather conditions weren’t as good as it was very windy. Upon starting the trip , the guides managed our expectations around the rough sea and also that there was no sightings on the morning trip that day on the 9.30 trip. However due to this, Blue Fleet sent out 3 boats at 11:30 all in radio communication to increase our chances of a sighting.

The seas were very rough, and I would advise for anyone going to take a water proof jacket as you get very wet in these conditions. But they found the dolphins.
How I don’t know, like a needle in a haystack!! But they found a pod of around 20 dolphins who then swam the boat once again.

It was such a great experience and I couldn’t recommend Blue Fleet and their staff enough

I just came back from a dolphin watching trip with Bluefleet. It was a great experience from start to finish. Their office is conviniently located inside the Lagos train station. The first date was cancelled due to not so good weather, which shows that they take safety seriously. I got a message on my phone together with a suggestion for another date. This time the weather was perfect. We started at around 11:30am, and after a slow ride outside the marina and the river, the boat got up to speed once we reached the ocean. This boatride alone is worth the money, as it is a thrilling experience. After a while we spotted many dolphins of different kinds. The crew was very friendly and highly knowledgeable and spoke perfect English. I never had the feeling that we had to rush due to time limits. It is hard to explain what it feels like to be so close to these incredible creatures. On the way back we even spotted a sea turtle and the crew made sure that we got a good look of the coastline and Ponta da Piedade, an added bonus. All in all, I can highly recommend this trip with Bluefleet.

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.

Most terrible & horrible experience! Stay away from this boat company. Never book any trip with this company. We booked the dolphin watching trip (morning time; as they recommended us). 30 minutes before the trip we got a phone call mentioning that trip is cancelled due to the bad weather. But the weather was absolutely fine. We reached their office immediately. They informed us that the weather is very bad. There was no chance (or possibility) to see the dolphins. They cancelled the dolphin watching tour for bad weather. They offered us other tour but we denied to have any other tour with them.
Immediately (at the same time) we contacted with another boat company called "Days of Adventure"(located in the same area) and "Days of Adventure" this boat company helped us to book a dolphin watching tour immediately. And they informed us the weather is very good and there was a lots of possibility to watch dolphins. We went with the boat company "Days of Adventure" on the same day morning (the same day morning Bluefleet cancelled the dolphin watching tour because of bad weather) and we saw a lots of dolphins & the weather was absolutely fine and sunny. So, we finally enjoyed the dolphin watching tour with "Days of Adventure" on the same day morning.
Bluefleet - this boat company provide wrong information & try to spoil your entire day plan with the untruthful information. Very disturbing & misleading! Stay away from this boat company. Highly NOT recommended!

We had an amazing time on the dolphin watching tour, seeing both common grey and bottle nose dolphins. The two guides were v friendly and kind to my children who were suffering a little sea sickness! They also respected the interests of the dolphins and we moved away when we'd reached the time limit. Very happy with the experience and would definitely recommend.

The boat ride was good fun and we saw a lot of dolphins. The staff was really professional, friendly and welcoming. Would 100% recommend to anyone to do the dolphin watching tour with Bluefleet and sit in the front of the boat if possible as you get the best view from there when the dolphins are swimming in front of the boat. It’s also great that the boat is low (speedboat) because you get to see the dolphins from so close. An amazing experience overall!

This was a highlight of our trip to Lagos. We had gone on the grotto tour with Bluefleet two days before (also fantastic), and this tour was worth every penny. Our family of four had so much fun--seeing the dolphins in their natural habitat, learning from the knowledgeable tour guides, speeding through the waves, perfect weather. Our tour was canceled one day because it was way too windy, and Bluefleet automatically booked us for the next day when we said we were available. The tour guides were friendly and provided a lot of information on the dolphin species we observed. The length of the tour was perfect, not too long, not too short....and just being on the fast boat on the open water was fun. We saw multiple groups of dolphins, and they had fun swimming through the foam around our boat. My teenage daughters loved it. This is a very professional company and I can't wait to go on another tour when we return.

My Boyfriend and I enjoyed the beautiful trip to see the dolphins. As promised we saw around 5-7 dolphins swimming in their natural habitat. It was an indescribable experience and we would recommend anyone doing it! The trip was around 2 hours in a speedboat.

So good we went twice! We went dolphin watching and enjoyed it so much that we booked it again.

The team are so professional, make you feel so welcome and have great knowledge. The boat is first class condition and it’s nothing but smiles from the crew.

When we saw the dolphins they were both respectful of the dolphins environment and gave great information about the breed.

I wouldn’t book with any other company. We’ve even booked a different tour with them for Sunday.

The Dolphin Watching tour with BlueFleet was one of the absolute highlights of our trip to Algarve. We were just a small group heading out with two tour guides. The tour guides were friendly and very knowledgable. They involved us in the trip by sharing what to look for to find dolphins, what types of dolphins we could expect to find and why they chose to search some areas over others. It truly felt like we were in good hands, and sure enough - after a while we found the dolphins.

It was an absolutely fantastic experience. The tour guides explained that the dolphins like to play with with foam from the boat and the movements in the water that the motor creates and therefore usually come right up to the boat and swims around it.
Seeing the dolphins was an absolute delight. They were incredibly beautiful and so playful and fast. We sat at the front seats and I highly recommend them if you manage to get them! Many of the dolphins swam along the boat in front of it, so you'll get the best view of the dolphins from the very front.

I highly recommend the Dolphin Watching tour with BlueFleet when you're in Lagos, Algarve! Seeing the dolphins was just amazing and even just being on the speed boat itself just flying over the waves was so much fun!
Again, highly recommend. Such an amazing experience! :)
