Owner description: A new philosophy, a boat for all ages... after a coastal cruise along the beautiful Lagos Golden Coast, the fun starts.. at this stage of the trip, everyone can have a go at our brand new clear bottom kayaks, the inflatable aquapark, snorkelling, family fishing or enjoy a boat ride and see the grottoes. Freedom and fun for all! Pay less and enjoy much, much more!

Excellent, friendly and really well organised kayaking trip. Great value and very family friendly too.

When you walk along the Avenida dos Descobrimentos at Lagos you'll be pitched by a dozen reps with boat trips of one kind or another. If you want to see and explore the coast west of Lagos, maybe take a swim in the open ocean, or explore the caves and coves by kayak or small motor boat, then the good news is you can do all of that in one trip by choosing the excellent Discover Portugal crew.

All the various trips start by boarding the spacious and well equipped Via Atlantico, which motors around to a mooring off the Ponte De Piedade before launching inflatables, kayaks and a small fishing boat. The basic trip costs €15 per person. Add kayaks for €10, or €5 for a trip through the caves on the fishing boat.

Wholeheartdly recommend the kayaks though. You get into places that the bigger boats just can't go, with a knowledgable guide to point out the interesting stuff (...ok, mostly interesting stuff). And they've got a transparent bottom, for kicks!

We accidentally found this operator and it has been a pleasure for us. We got an extremely good deal including grotto trip, kayaking and snorkelling. There were some other water activities as well. They provided us with free drinks. What else do you want !! We requested for a 2nd grotto trip on the same day and they did for free. Simply wonderful service and worth every penny.

Just come back from a boat trip in Lagos Portugal. Although there are many companies. Offering trips we went with a company called Discover.pt. what an amazing day we had with them. The boats are excellent condition. The crew were without doubt the friendliest by far. Nothing was to much trouble. We went for the boat that holds about 50 people and sails along the beautiful coast line. And drops anchor then you all get into glass bottom canoes. And a guide takes you into all the caves and coves. Absoulutly fantastic. You can swim. Dive off the boat play on there floating pontoon Clim back on board. And recieve a refreshing cold drink while the captain sails down the coast. ( breathtaking) before returning to the marina. If your planning to do a boat trip look out for this company you will not be disappointed.

We were 15 minutes late for the boat trip (+kayak) and the staff made a miracle for us. We first boarded on a speed boat to catch up the rest of the tour and then started kayak. It was a great and worthy experience.

It is 6 years since I last visited Lagos and it didn't disappoint. The only disappointing thing was the amount of beggars on the streets. To be fair, most of them were old people, but there was a group of tattooed young ment with shaved heads that were very threatening if you didn't put some money their tin. There was group of 3 or 4 of them with an old dog and they would walk right up to your face, rattle the tin and say they wanted money for the dog. Very scary, would not have liked to walk past them without my husband.

That said, the Portugese are the most friendly in the world and they treated us like long lost friends. The food we had in the restaurants was mostly good, O Artista and the Oasis, were visited several times as we found these to be excellent. We went on a speedboat to see the dolphins, which was a truly memorable experience.

On the whole, we found the prices of food and drink as well as the boat trips had dropped dramatically since we were last there and the holiday was very cheap.

The Hotel Marina Rio is to be recommended, really excellent hotel
