    Our trip exceeded our expectations. The captain and crew were professional, friendly, and very knowledgeable about the area. They set up a fantastic itinerary for our group— exploring the coast by boat, avoiding the crowds (our request), and getting a fantastic Algarve experience swimming and paddling. Snacks and drinks were a perfect addition, and top recommendation for a seafood lunch after the trip. When we are back, we are booking again!

    The whole team were incredible from start to finish. With Jenny’s help to plan the trip and make the engagement special by adding champagne and a charcuterie board. Then on the day Nick & Chris made us feel very welcome and were a great laugh, they took us to the perfect spot for me to pop the question. The whole trip was relaxed & enjoyable and we got to see the lovely coast of the algarve and all that it has to offer. Thank you all for making our special day even more memorable.

    Response from the boat owner

    In one word - perfection. The boat was clean, beautiful, and ran wonderfully. Vera and Nick were exceptional hosts and completely confident and competent. We not only felt safe, but also very welcome and wonderfully attended. They delivered on every promise and expectation. Snacks and drinks were excellent and plentiful. Local knowledge and sightseeing info was entertaining and very valuable. Their genuine and sincere personalities really capped off this perfect day.

    We booked this for my sister’s hen do. We had the most amazing time. Nick was unbelievable and so accommodating. They ensured we had the best time possible from drinks to music to taking us to spots that suited us. I couldn’t recommend Nick more, and the boat was stunning. The group agreed that we had done boat trips before but this was the best one we have ever done. This boat trip made our holiday and can’t wait to do it again

    Response from the boat owner

    Hello Lydia
    Thank you so much for your very kind review. I am so happy you all had a good time, Nick and Vera said it was a great afternoon too, I saw the photos they looked amazing! Look forward to having you on board again. Thank you.

    Nick, Chris and Jenny arranged the perfect day. We were in town for my father’s birthday and they made sure the full-day charter was the highlight of the trip. They granted every request and anticipated every need - we had route options and recommendations, lunch and snacks were incredible, and our glasses were never empty. Only thing we had to worry about was basking in the sun and enjoying the beautiful Algarves. They made the day seamless and one we’ll never forget. We will definitely be back aboard the Pocahontas the next time we’re in town.

    Response from the boat owner

    Hi Gillian
    It was a real pleasure meeting you and your family, thank you for your lovely review.

    We had an incredible time on the yacht! The sailing trip offered breathtaking views and unforgettable moments. It also has everything you'll need. The crew, Capt. Nick and Chris, were fantastic, making sure we had a safe, smooth and enjoyable experience from start to finish. A perfect way to soak in the beauty of Algarve. Highly recommend!

    Our family of five had a great trip with Nick and Chris on the yacht for the day. We enjoyed paddle boarding through the caves, jumping off the boat into the chilly water, and admiring the scenic views with some education about the area from the crew. Crew was flexible with how we wanted to spend the day, friendly, and catered to all our needs. Lunch in Ferragudo was wonderful. Highly recommend!

    Our experience on Jenny’s boat with Nick and Sue was incredible!! Jenny was wonderful at helping us booking on slightly short notice, Nick and Sue were fantastic on the boat, giving us great advice on where to go, and fun chit chat and info about all the areas we saw. We loved the use of the paddle boards and the snorkel gear, and they had great snacks and fruit for us to enjoy.
    I would highly recommend booking this beautiful boat, and my husband and I would happily do it again on our next visit to Lagos.
    Thank you all for a great day!

    Captain Nick and his assistant Vera were incredible. We are a party of 8 vacationers with ages that range from 7 years old to 67 years old. Everyone had an amazing time. The scenery & views were breathtaking! We did some paddle-boarding and jumped from boat into the beautiful Gold Coast of Lagos Portugal. The drinks were very cold and in abundance. This is a must do for anyone considering a fun couple of hours in the Atlantic. The memories gained will not be forgotten.

    Nick and Chris were perfection! Thank you for being so fun and relaxed with our kids! They were able to accommodate our last minute request. Drinks and snacks were non stop. Nick knew exactly where to take us for calm paddle boarding with the kids. Chris was super accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed at all times!

    Absolutely perfect charter. The captain showed us and took us to different places that were not just the touristy spots. He kept us up to date on where he was taking us and how he was getting there. The crew was helpful in anything that we needed. The yacht was clean, beautiful and very comfortable. The owner took care of our lunch reservations and recommended the perfect place for me to celebrate my 40th birthday. The full day went by so quickly, we wish we could’ve been out for longer.

    We had an awesome time on a l/2 day cruise on Jenny's yacht. Jenny responded in a timely and professional manner, and was able to book us last minute. The boat was beautiful, clean and well maintained. Our skipper and steward (I think Nick and Chris?), were so friendly, polite and comfortable to be with. They served us wine and snacks, showed us how to paddle board, took lots of photos for us, gave us history of our surroundings, and were just a pleasure to be with. I can't wait to go out again next year with them, and I highly recommend to anyone

    This trip was absolutely amazing! We booked it for a honeymoon excursion last minute and Jenny was very responsive and got us on the boat the very next day. Nick and Chris were a 5 star crew. They provided us with beverages, snacks and lots of laughs. They even let us play our own tunes which turns out we all love 80's rock! We had the best day hanging with them! Thank you so much for the hospitality. Would 100% book this boat again!! :)

    What a wonderful experience! We were late with our reservation, but Jenny got back to us right away with all the details. Nick and Chris were fantastic to boat with. They were knowledgable about the area and very attentive. They made sure we were safe and having a wonderful time. The boat was beautiful and very clean. Would definitely come back for round two!

    Great experience. Boat was amazing, service amazing, staff amazing. They provide drinks and snacks (including melon and prosciutto!) and having two paddle boards made it a lot of fun. Would certainly choose them if I were to go back to Lagos

    Fabulous. If you're thinking of treating yourself to a luxury yacht for the day (or half) day - do it! Jenny and the team were perfect, Nick was the model captain. Honestly, book a trip, it makes the holiday and lifelong memory. We try to book a yacht each time we go away, Dubai was the one before this - this was better....would thoroughly recommend

    My husband and I and four teenage kids had one of the most amazing ever family adventure on Pocahontas with Nick and Chris. Jenny was super responsive and organized in setting up the full day along the Algarve coast out of Lagos. The captain and skipper were safe, kind and full of information about everywhere we went. The boat was in amazing condition. The sights were simply gorgeous. Everything was flexible and they made the trip all about us and what we wanted to do. Hopefully they liked the music that our teenagers played on the boats stereo! ;) It was exactly what we wanted and needed and we’d love to go anywhere with the boat and crew again.
