This was quite simply one of the best days our family have had together. The two skippers were so accommodating and friendly. There were four of us (two adults and 7 and 4yo girls) and they made the trip all about us. They were so knowledgeable about the cliffs and caves and the rest of the coast line and would tell us stories about what used to happen there or how each part got it’s name. They made sure both the kids were happy and comfortable and would talk to them about things on their level. When it came to the more fun activities, my wife and kids went out on the banana boat at a nice steady speed and the kids loved it. We looked at a few locations to paddle board but they discussed the calmness of the water and boat traffic with us and said they had a perfect place for the kids to do it. And they weren’t wrong. Just into the river where high tide creates a perfect white sand island and calm shallow warm waters. Both crew were so patient with the kids and helped them get used to being on the boards. When the 4yo then wanted to collect shells on the island, Pedro went looking with her and she was over the moon! I honestly couldn’t thank them enough at the end of the trip. We’d been offered boat trips by our hotel to the bigger boats because they know they can get the places but if you get the chance to go with these then you won’t be disappointed. Hopefully the crew get this feedback, but, thank you again!!

Went on a day trip to Lagosh Monday, as good as ever. Crue friendly and very knowledgeable. They now take a small boat along so they can take you into the caves. A great addition to the day at no extra cost. Highly recommended.

We booked a saturday afternoon in September 2019 and were the only two on the boat - we appreciated them not trying to amend the booking. It is a good trip and they take ther time to show you all the caves and coves plus point out all of the interesting features. We had time to swim and also take the smaller boat to get into some of the smaller caves. Great afternoon -well done guys!

The boat trip to Lagos from Alvor turned out to be one of the highlights of our holiday, and considering we were in Alvor to play golf says it all. The crew of two we excellent, friendy and very funny. We made our way to Lagos using the 75 year old boats engine and came back under sail, after a 4 hour stop st the very interesting town of Lagos. Sailing back was a real treat after first viewing the various cliff faces and caves of the area. Do not miss this trip.
