Just back from a week in Vilamoura which is a fabulous place for a holiday. However the worst part of the holiday was a boat tour with Algarve Seafaris. My hotel booked a glass bottomed boat tour for us which also went to see dolphins. However we instead were put on the Moena which went to see caves, which we... More

Lovely smooth trip seeing as we were lucky with the weather (unlike many it seems writing reviews) staff were friendly enough. Chance to have... More

Booked 4 hour trip through hotel reception, party of 10 paid over 200 euros! What a complete disappointment. Asked upon boarding how many people on board and told 120, what rubbish! At least 200 people on board. No safety talk, no visible life jackets, absolutely no consideration for the paying customers comfort and enjoyment whatsoever. Upon stopping to visit the... More

The weather was fantastic, the crew very friendly (captain quite... More

Went on a day of fishing with Seafaris. It was enjoyable and we caught 2 sharks between the group of 14. The guide (Helder) was very friendly and helpful with many stories and tips. And we got free dolphin watching thrown in for free. All in all a good day and worth doing it.
