We are family of 5 with children aged 4 and 10. The staff were very accommodating and couldn’t have been better in many ways!!

We went first on a morning trip at 09:30. Wow!! We saw literally hundreds of Dolphins, at one point we had around 15 dolphins swimming with the boat. It was just magical. The guides knew exactly where to go and were knowledgable and gave us a really good experience.

It was that good we went and booked again for another day!

The next time we went for the trip at 11:30, unfortunately the weather conditions weren’t as good as it was very windy. Upon starting the trip , the guides managed our expectations around the rough sea and also that there was no sightings on the morning trip that day on the 9.30 trip. However due to this, Blue Fleet sent out 3 boats at 11:30 all in radio communication to increase our chances of a sighting.

The seas were very rough, and I would advise for anyone going to take a water proof jacket as you get very wet in these conditions. But they found the dolphins.
How I don’t know, like a needle in a haystack!! But they found a pod of around 20 dolphins who then swam the boat once again.

It was such a great experience and I couldn’t recommend Blue Fleet and their staff enough

I just came back from a dolphin watching trip with Bluefleet. It was a great experience from start to finish. Their office is conviniently located inside the Lagos train station. The first date was cancelled due to not so good weather, which shows that they take safety seriously. I got a message on my phone together with a suggestion for another date. This time the weather was perfect. We started at around 11:30am, and after a slow ride outside the marina and the river, the boat got up to speed once we reached the ocean. This boatride alone is worth the money, as it is a thrilling experience. After a while we spotted many dolphins of different kinds. The crew was very friendly and highly knowledgeable and spoke perfect English. I never had the feeling that we had to rush due to time limits. It is hard to explain what it feels like to be so close to these incredible creatures. On the way back we even spotted a sea turtle and the crew made sure that we got a good look of the coastline and Ponta da Piedade, an added bonus. All in all, I can highly recommend this trip with Bluefleet.

The boat ride was good fun and we saw a lot of dolphins. The staff was really professional, friendly and welcoming. Would 100% recommend to anyone to do the dolphin watching tour with Bluefleet and sit in the front of the boat if possible as you get the best view from there when the dolphins are swimming in front of the boat. It’s also great that the boat is low (speedboat) because you get to see the dolphins from so close. An amazing experience overall!

The Dolphin Watching tour with BlueFleet was one of the absolute highlights of our trip to Algarve. We were just a small group heading out with two tour guides. The tour guides were friendly and very knowledgable. They involved us in the trip by sharing what to look for to find dolphins, what types of dolphins we could expect to find and why they chose to search some areas over others. It truly felt like we were in good hands, and sure enough - after a while we found the dolphins.

It was an absolutely fantastic experience. The tour guides explained that the dolphins like to play with with foam from the boat and the movements in the water that the motor creates and therefore usually come right up to the boat and swims around it.
Seeing the dolphins was an absolute delight. They were incredibly beautiful and so playful and fast. We sat at the front seats and I highly recommend them if you manage to get them! Many of the dolphins swam along the boat in front of it, so you'll get the best view of the dolphins from the very front.

I highly recommend the Dolphin Watching tour with BlueFleet when you're in Lagos, Algarve! Seeing the dolphins was just amazing and even just being on the speed boat itself just flying over the waves was so much fun!
Again, highly recommend. Such an amazing experience! :)

We went for a Dolphin Safari from Lagos with BlueFleet. 11 persons/customers and 2 from BlueFleet. We had 3 children on Board, whereof one 6 year old and one 9 year old in my family. We had to go for around 40 minutes before we saw the dolphins. The Boat trip itself was very enjoyable. Then when we saw the dolphins; amazing. There were around 8 - 10 dolphins. One baby dolphin was in the group. Fantastic to see the baby swim with the mother dolphin. The dolphins were curious about the boat, so they stayed around the boat for a while. This was an experience for the rest of your life, especially for the children. I recommend BlueFleet, because they were very professional and accommodating. To be in a small group is also something I recommend.

Our trip was great. Everything with Bluefleet went fine and we enjoyed the tour. At first I thought we won't see any dolphins because it took us a 30 min ride till we were that far offshore to get close to them.
I was really happy that it was not too crowded and the boats (3 all together) didn't chase the dolphins. They were swimming around us and had no fear or felt uncomfortable so they stayed a while with us before swimming somewhere else.

Punctual and the guides were very good in locating the dolphins. They had them on GPS. It's variable since they're wild dolphins so wouldn't go into tour expecting to see a huge pod of dolphins but the guides work hard to give the best experience possible. Overall very good experience

Went dolphin watching with Blue Fleet. The experience was amazing! Saw dozens of dolphins. The staff really did respect the natural environment and stayed at a safe distance. When the dolphins were close, the propeller was stopped not to injure them! Amazing experience!

even got to see a loggerhead sea turtle!
