Thank you to Captain Steve for a lovely afternoon out on his boat. Really enjoyed the visit to the island and all the information he shared while we were making the crossing. Would certainly go again.

Hello
Firstly I must thank you for taking the time to leaving this comment.
I is so nice to hear from you and that you had a great time on tour with me.

I am being blown away by wind and rain now, what has happen to the weather this spring is crazy.
I hope to see you in the future.
My very best regards
Steve.

Had a great trip wth Captain Steve today. Did the sunset tour, stopped on culatra island, saw armona island, lots of other things in between and topped it off with an amazing sunset! Steve was a really informative and entertaining guide. Would definitely recommend, great value at €20.

Nice sunny day at end of Oct. calm restful trip over to the islands in the afternoon. Went to the fishermans island had some beers in the sun. Viewed all the yachts and cruisers around the clam and oyster beds watched them digging clams.
Came back through the setting sun in a blaze of gold well worth the experience.

We had a great late afternoon tour together with Captain Steve. Relaxing, great views, lots of good local stories and fabulous light when coming close to the ocean. Safe and professional captain.

Well recommended. Steve is a friendly, genuine guide who can be trusted. He has plenty of interesting stories as he takes you through the lagoon. We sailed to Culatra where my wife and I and 6 and 8 yr old boys ate in Rui restaurant. A superb selection of fish at affordable prices. Then we had a couple of hours fun with paddle boards, kayaks and snorkel masks before sailing back to harbour. Well worth the reasonable cost.
