We took this boat trip yesterday (5th July 2014). Bart was very knowledgeable on our journey to Lagos, our captain was a super man, lots to see during our visit to Lagos, lovely tapas bar for lunch, on the boat trip back we tried our hand a fishing.... What a laugh. Boat carries a very large cool box, stocked with beers, soft drinks & Sangria. Many thanks for a fabulous day from Joan & Aileen.

We had a beautiful afternoon sail going eastwards from Alvor.The skipper kept us entertained and well informed as we sailed along. The coastline is spectacular and really only best seen from the sea. The highlight for me was jumping into the clear surprisingly warm sea from the side of the boat. All in all a memorable trip.

Booked a day trip to Lagos as I like a boat trip and wanted to go on a sailing boat. We had a few hours in Lagos which is an interesting town with a few museums and forts (all shut between 1230 and 1400) lots of shops and restuarants. The boat trip was brilliant, Bart was full of information and very enthusiastic whilst Pedro was the perfect captain. The trip back via the grottos and caves was interesting and the views beautiful.

We enjoyed the race back with the other boat, but we didnt really get up to the speeds that the boat was capable of because of the wind. We did get to sail both ways and really enjoyed the trip.

Would definitely recommend this company

Really impressed with the boat trip and the crew were fabulous.Went with the family and can't fault the trip at all. Very informative with lots of information shared and good to see the caves and coastline from the Sea. Definitely nice extras with the fishing and snorkelling too! So impressed came off and booked the boat trip for Friday! Can't recommend this highly enough. It made my sons holiday.
