I took the Coastal Cruise on a beautiful sunny although windy day. On the way out the seas had some high surf but the boat and Captain Pedro handled it with ease. After exploring some caves the trip back was "smooth sailing." We stopped on an little island/sandbar that had been made from outgoing tide. There were three small children... More

Had a lovely boat trip on a beautiful sunday morning. The weather was perfect, the boat was not crowded and a glass of sangria in hand - what could be better? Seeing a flying fish rounded off a very pleasant couple of hours. Will definitely do it again.

Fabulous day out with Rick and Freddy on their super little boat. Lovely calm morning when we set off and we enjoyed hearing all the stories and factual information about the area. Was quite chilly when we reboarded after several hours in Lagos and we were very happy when Freddy produced blankets for us all to wrap up in. Needless... More

The weather was not so kind but it didn't spoil our trip today, Freddie and Rick were great company and gave us lots of interesting information about the area as we left Alvor and crossed the water to Lagos. We had a tour of the caves along the coastline which was fascinating, especially as while Freddie was telling us how... More

I took a day trip from Alvor to Lagos with Trigana, the boat was as depicted in their advert, a beautiful old sailing craft. The crew, 2 young lads, were extremely competent, friendly and amusing, full of information about the history of the area. Leaving Alvor the views of the Estuary and surrounding region were excellent. We travelled to Lagos... More
