Fantastique ! Expérience fantastique en famille (enfants 3 et 7 ans). Nous avions une petite embarcation, qui était visiblement la meilleure option à prendre car elle nous a permis de rentrer dans des grottes quasi inaccessibles. Le “capitaine” comme l’appellent les enfants parlait un français plus que correct permettant aux enfants de comprendre toutes les explications. Il a su s’adapter aux enfants en abordant certaines grosses vagues avec douceur. Nous avions pris l’horaire de 10h pour éviter les grosses chaleurs, c’était parfait ! Les enfants veulent y retourner, et nous aussi !!!
Die beste Tour, die man an der Algarve bekommen kann! Unser Bootsmann Rui war super freundlich, herzlich und informativ. Er konnte wirklich zu jedem Stein und jeder Felsformation eine Geschichte erzählen. Es war eine super Stimmung auf dem Boot, obwohl wir nur zu dritt unterwegs waren - wesentlich entspannter als dicht an dicht zu sitzen. Er war sehr bemüht und ist trotz Wind und Wellengang mit uns raus und sogar Orte angefahren, die die anderen gemieden haben. Wir fühlten uns zu jeder Zeit sicher. Er verdient mehr Aufmerksamkeit!

Great experience with Guide Rui Pedro! We did the tour through the grottes in ponta da piedade in the end of november and the waves were wild, but Lagos Boat Tours was the only one to offer us a boat tour and in the end we were the only ones on the sea. Our guide Rui also asked us whether we do want to continue despite of the strong waves, if not we would get a refund, which we very appreciated. But we wanted to do the boat tour very much and thus have continued. Although the ocean was very wild our very experienced guide Rui Pedro got us safe back and even into the caves and showed us how good his navigation were. All in all it was a very fun experience and we can recommend Lagos Boat Tours and our guide Rui to the fullest!
Thank You Lagos Boat Tours Captain Rui provided us with an amazing trip, the sights were wonderful and he carefully explained everything we were looking at. Extremely informative but pleasant experience. I would definitely recommend.
Utterly amazing tour It was the most amazing boat trip I have ever done. Captain Rui knows what he is doing and it's very interesting to learn about the history of Lagos and its beautiful beaches and rock formations. We were able to visit all the caves along the coast and jump in that crystalline water for a swim. I definitely recommend Lagos Boat Tours for those who are looking to relax and discover a bit of Lagos coast

Great experience with Lagos Boat Tours! I did the Coastal Tour in the end of August with the company "Lagos Boat Tours" and with the great captain Rui Pedro! He is a very patient man and stop many times to make photos. He explained all the details about the coastline including every beach, cave and rock formation with their curious names such as the Student Beach (with its roman style bridge), the Gorilla, the Elephant and the Skull. I am Portuguese and I was very impressed with his ability to speak so many foreign languages! In our tour was people with 4 different nationalities (English, Germans, Portuguese and French) and he did the commentary in all this languages! I completely recommend this Coastal Tour and this company. It was a fantastic experience and the colors were great! Don't forget to bring your camera or smartphone with the battery fully charged, because you will be doing lots of photos!
Really Nice We really enjoyed the trip. I accidentally booked for the wrong date while it was our last day in Lagos. I did ring Lagos Boat Tours and got Rui Pedro, the shipper, on the phone. After I explained the situation he took care we were on his boat 1.5 hours later. In a nutshell: super nice/trustworthy company, good service, excellent trip and Rui Pedro a great guide and captain!

Gracias Ruy! Ruy Pedro fue nuestro guía en la excursión. Fue fantástico! Tuvimos mucha suerte porque estuvimos solos mi pareja y yo con él. Fue muy enriquecedor hablar con él. Me gustó mucho la excursión. El día anterior habíamos hecho por nuestra cuenta a pie la excursión por los acantilados hasta Ponta da Piedade y verlo desde el mar sabiendo todas las curiosidades que Ruy nos contó estuvo genial. Me encantó cómo nos mostró las grutas y su pericia para navegar por el interior de las mismas, en algunas parecía imposible entrar. Fue muy amable dejándonos hacer fotos y colocándose de la mejor manera para que las hiciéramos, incluso ofreciéndose para hacernos alguna a nosotros juntos. Gracias Ruy! Suerte y un abrazo muy fuerte de Pili y Fernando! Te esperamos en el norte de España!
Great trip Great trip, very knowledgeable guide who spoke an amazing amount of languages including great English. Lovely to see the beautiful sights from the water and learn the history.
Imprescindible en la zona de Lagos Esta es una de las excursiones imprescindibles si te acercas a la zona de Lagos. La vista de los acantilados desde el mar y el poder entrar dentro de las distintas cuevas y formaciones y observarlas desde dentro es alucinante. El patrón de nuestra embarcación (Rui Pedro) además de ser muy amable y explicarnos muchos detalles durante la excursión, tenía un manejo del barco increíble y consiguió entrar en todas las grutas aunque la mar estuviera algo movida.

Rui was excellent. Very knowledgeable, funny and a good captain overall. Sadly, my girlfriend and I toured his boat... with no other guests due to the covid-19 pandemic. His boat was very clean and he took more than the necessary precautions to keep us all safe. Despite having just two passengers, Rui made every moment interesting by telling us the deep history of the area. He also took great photos of us as we went and sent them to us after we returned. I would not hesitate to recommend Rui and his tours to anyone in Lagos looking for an authentic local experience. Obrigado, Rui!read more

We have had this tour with my friends. Total 6 people. On the boat our captain was Rui Pedro. He is very honest and... competent. We booked 1 hour tour and we stayed out 1 hour and a half with no extra. Rui Pedro was very clever to manage the boat inside the caves! Very good experience. I definitively recommend this tour..and the captain Rui Pedro is very good. See you next time in Portugal with you. Alessandro from Italyread more
