      Beautiful Private Boat Tour with George
      George was a great guide who was knowledgeable about the area and kept the conversation fun. Boat was comfortable and the tour itself was beautiful. Highly recommend going with George!

      Incredible experience, such great value for money. Jumped off the top deck into the Atlantic then had a 3 course meal with bottomless cervezaes. Just a really great time and will be coming back next year!!

      Beautiful Ponta da Piedade!
      I booked online for this trip, the process was easy with clear instructions. There was a seating area in front of their office that one can sit comfortably while waiting for the tour to start, everything was very organised. The skipper and the guide made sure that everyone was safe on the boat and they gave information at every stops. Thank you guys for an amazing boat trip!

      Don’t miss this tour
      Our kayak experience far exceeded our expectations. We went in June of 2024. Our guides Michael and Sam were very attentive and informative, and Captain Nono is clearly an expert pilot, guiding us gently back into a tight slip when our adventure was done. Two 50 somethings and our early 20s children absolutely loved everything about this tour and highly recommend!

      Great way to see the rock formations up close. Really the only way to see them. Guides were fun and informative. Worth the money and time spent on the tour. You won’t regret it.

      Amazing way to spend our last full day in Lagos!
      This trip was wonderful - my entire family enjoyed it! Lagos was the last stop on our 2-week trip to Portugal and what a beautiful place it was. This tour enabled us to explore the coastline, enjoy great music, flowing wine, a charcuterie board then lunch - which was all wonderful. We met lovely people on the excursion and the tour guides were great! I only wish the water had been a bit warmer - but it was early June! Highly recommend this trip as a great way to explore the coastline, enjoy local food and learn some history.

      Wonderful Tour
      We opted for the blue cruise, 4 fantastic hours exploring the coast of Lagos! It was wonderful sunshine day, music on board, the guides explaining the name of each beach we passed. a very good environment! at some point we start looking at the horizon and see dolphins jumping! our skipper takes us to the dolphins where we enjoy them for a few brief moments! We return closer to the coast where we are served a very complete lunch (starters, main course, dessert and drinks). the place where we stopped for lunch is beautiful! We were able to see the bottom of the sea perfectly and lots of fish! We dived and it was great! I didn't want the tour to end! I loved

      Great way to experience the coastline and caves
      Overall a lovely, well organised and entertaining experience. Amazing views of the coastline and being able to get so close to the natural rock formations. Staff were really friendly and accommodating. We didn't join in the swimming but it looked like fun. Three course lunch was perfect. A thoroughly enjoyable experience celebrating our mum's birthday.

      What a wonderful boat trip!
      We had a wonderful experience on the boat trip! The welcoming atmosphere and friendly service, along with the attentive skipper and informative guide, made it a delightful family-friendly outing. Our kids had a great time, which is fantastic. I definitely think it's worth recommending to others!

      Perfect tour
      This is the best way to see the gorgeous cliffs of Lagos from the water. We had looked at the kayak tours and were really happy we chose this small boat option instead. Thanks to Bruno’s expert driving we were able to enter the caves and cover far more ground than would have been possible in a kayak. Diana was also great and especially good with taking group photos. She knows how to work the camera angles, so be sure to take her up on her offers. The seas seem calmer earlier in the day, so you may want to consider that when you book. 10/10 experience.

      Great value and very informative
      Another great trip with Blue Fleet. Friendly staff who got us right in to all the caves, explained all the local names for them and were a lot of fun during the trip. Highly recommended if you want to see some of the caves and beaches inaccessible by anything other than boat (or swimming). Great value.

      Really friendly team at Blue Fleet
      Great trip with lots of dolphin sightings. Previous reviews suggested we take a coat, even on a warm day but we found it fine without, with temperatures inland in the early 20’s. Blue Fleet team were great at locating the dolphins and provided some additional sightseeing of some of the caves on the way back. Water was a bit choppy but the journey to and from the dolphins was great fun.

    It is absolutely beautiful and to see it from a boat is great. What I didn't like was that they didn't tell us anything on the trip. There were two people, the guide who said close to nothing and the driver who didn't speak much English. They pointed out only the beaches and the names of them and a couple of rocks that both looked like elephants. Compared to the kayak trip we did today with another company, this paled in comparison. The guides on the kayak trip told us the history of the rock formations, stories behind caves and particular rocks, and were genuinely friendly and great. This one, not so much... Would not recommend unless you just want a boat trip to see the cliffs.

    Hello, Thank you kindly for your comment and review. Taking in consideration that you had taken a tour the previous day which took place in the same area, the skippers opted to provide you more privacy to enjoy the tour. The skippers usually explain more and interact with our guests and they are always available to explain and give information regarding the area in case of queries. They intended to avoid telling the same stories twice, within a 24 hour time distance and let you benefit from the private tour, the spectacular views and swiming in a secluded area. We are very grateful for your preference and look forward to welcome you again. We appreciate your comments also to improve and always provide the best experience and memories. Kind Regards, Rita Rio

    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!

    Our group of 8 arrived early for our scheduled trip. They were able to put us on an earlier trip which was great. Our tour directors, Bruno and Sébastien were outstanding! The skill that Bruno showed driving the boat so close to the caves was remarkable. Sébastien was full of historical information not only about the caves but about Portugal in general was very much appreciated. These two were absolutely hilarious yet very professional! Unfortunately we did not know that Blue Fleet did the tour to the Benegil caves or we would have booked with them. We ended up booking with another company which was an absolute disaster. They overbooked the boat and we were uncomfortably squished. We also had a person on the boat that was seasick. We were able to get a bag from the captain, but later near the end of the tour, the captain was doing hot dog moves with the boat which many of us felt was not only unnecessary but inconsiderate considering that someone was ill. I would absolutely recommend this company for anyone wanting a boat tour. You will not be disappointed! Thank you to Bruno and Sébastien for an outstanding experience!!!

    We had a great time! Our crew was experienced and were very knowledgeable about the area. The ocean was a little rough on the day we went out and our crew did a good job of trying to make our ride as smooth as possible and fun. If you are prone to seasickness, I would suggest talking to the crew about weather conditions before booking. I highly recommend Bluefleet!

    Thank you for a wonderful cruise! We all had a great time! The highlights for us were seeing the caves and jumping off the back of the boat into the refreshing sparkling sea! The guides were very friendly and accommodating, answering any questions we had. We didn’t see any dolphins this trip but we were told they do sometimes see them. Amazing views and a very relaxed vibe on the upper deck. Their office just inside the train station near Lagos Marina was easy to find and we had drinks at the cafe while we were waiting.

    Our two hour boat cruise with a beautiful swimming stop was a fantastic way to see the coastline of southern Portugal outside of Lagos. Our boat captain and staff were friendly, informative and communicated well with the group. A lovely swim, some laughs and taste of Port wine was the perfect way to spend our morning. Bluefleet boats were clean and comfortable. A great 2hr tour I would recommend to anyone.

    Fantastic experience. Our skipper Antonio took us out from the Marina in Lagos out along the coastline to the caves and grotto's it was a spectacular journey in the clear blue waters an the amazing scenary. Antonio was a great guide giving a lot of information of the areas history and very accommodating to us. We had the fantastic surprise on the way back to the harbour of seeing some dolphins swimming in the sea.

    From booking the trip online, to check in and the trip itself, everything was efficient and well organised. The member of staff gave a good commentary about the different features of the coastline along from Lagos. The trip was relaxed and informative with a stop for off boat swimming and a glass of port! Well worth the price of 30€ for a two hour trip.

    an absolutely perfect & relaxed trip 🌞 boat not overcrowded, great to see the beautiful coast from the water. a few facts given along the way but nothing too much which was really nice. we even went into a couple of larger caves which was really cool. we also had some time for a swim & to jump off the boat, followed by a glass of port which was a bonus...really recommend this :)
