Unique experience on unique boat. Great staff - very informative about fish, marine life, geology etc. Amazingly clear view of various areas around the coastline including a cave, lava flows etc. Very enjoyable morning. Thank you.

We had two trips on the OceanEye the first aborted due to a trim issue, they were really apologetic and very flexible about when we could reorganise the trip.

Second time out we had 2 hours out that just flew by! We were unlucky that day not to see any Dolphins but the caves along the Algarve coast were fascinating and the information given was involving.

One tip, when you board don't go rushing downstairs into the cabin to sit round the glass bottom, there is plenty of time when the boat slows and stops to see whats going on below the surface and when you are travelling it is much nicer being up top!

A great trip, well worth taking.

I really recommend this trip for anyone interested in what's going on below the surface of the ocean. The boat is unlike any that I've ever been on before and every boat goes out with a marine biologist to explain what you're seeing. This trip would be especially great for anyone that doesn't like to snorkel or dive so that you still get the full experience. It would also be great for children-- it is completely safe. There were children on my boat that really enjoyed themselves.

Marco was both pleasant and knowledgable. We very much enjoyed learning about marine biology and geology of the region. The boat ride was fun and very comfortable. Great time...

We had a fantastic tour with the ocean eye both the skipper and the guide were marine biologist. We were given lots of information of both the geology of Faial and the marine life. The high light of our trip was seeing bottle noses Dolphins and false killer whales swim along side the boat amazing! :) :)
