Customers feedback

Hello Andre good morning! We wanted to share with you our feeling about yesterday's tour! It was spectacular! It makes all the difference when this type of tours is done by a skipper like ours because you see that you love what you do! Richard did not just walk us, in addition to all the explanations he gave us where we walked along the beaches until the birds showed us tb on his own phone! The joy and happiness with which he did so undoubtedly passed to us! We will recommend as much as possible and we are seriously considering coming on another tour before winter begins! Thank you very much for the excellent late afternoon yesterday. P. M.

Had an amazing day spent exploring the Ria Formosa park with Boat For A Day. Everything was organised easily by João with the location point being sent to us the day prior. Also Richard, our guide, was lovely, he took us off the coast to see the dolphins and back inland for a swim, whilst providing us with plenty of facts about the area. We would definitely book again and having experienced another boat trip with a different company would prioritise coming with the Boat For A Day team 100%

This is the best boat company! I did a lot of research to try to find a private tour that would accommodate our preferences and this company did not disappoint. Save your time and just reserve with them! They gave us 5 star service, adapted the itinerary to our liking and gave us a truly magical day. The booking process was easy and they answered all my questions and responded very quickly via email and gave us details on where to have free secure parking. The boat was spotless and they catered to us like we were celebrities. My husband said it was his favourite experience of our 2 week holiday in Portugal. Thank you to our captains for making a such memorable day for us!

Fantastic day, on a trip where safety is a priority and then comes the fun … in an idyllic, unique place and still kept secret by the locals.
