What people are saying about Lagos Marina

AMAZING! Do not leave Portugal without going on this boat tour. Our captain was amazing. So friendly and fun, and his boating skills were so impressive! I couldn’t believe some of the places he took us. We literally said, “No way are we seriously going in there?!” about 10 times ☺️ That being said, we always felt 100% safe with him and the scenery is absolutely breathtaking. Yes, that sounds cheesy but once you see it you’ll agree!

Luis greeted us at the meeting point. He must be the owner because he was great. Funny and extremely helpful. Made us feel very welcomed. He introduced us to Jorge our captain and Inez. They were very friendly. Jorge was a professional navigating the boat through the caves and around the rocks. Thank you so much.

It was a beautiful trip and nice views! However it was hot out on the boat (going slow to avoid flipping the boats/ kayaks etc. would recommend headed out earlier in the day in the summer!

There were only four of us, but the trip went ahead as planned. It was very enjoyable and the guides were very nice and knowledgeable.

Lovely people and a really fun tour. Some of the sites were great especially for a shorter trip. Defo recommend this
