Shark fishing trip

poor communication on board - no information about sharkfishing and no fish caught at all - a total waste of time and money - stay away.

Awesome boat trip!! Would 100% recommend. This is my 2nd trip and would return for a third. Awesome trip to the caves in glass bottom boat and smooth transition onto it. Great banter with staff and running commentary on trip throughout! Jimmy especially very funny on glassbottom boat :-)) 10/10

What a horrible day out that was. The pictures on the leaflets are very deceiving, it's not anything like that. We expected to be taken around lots of caves and get off the boat onto a small beach "only accessible by boat". We also expected to get off the boat for a swim, like the leaflet advertises. No no no,... More

We thought we were going on a sea tour with a trip to the caves but that was more of an inconvenience than anything else! We were packed onto a boat akin to a Venice sea taxi, over 60 people, some of us sat on the bow in front of the driver as space really wasn't at a premium on... More

We booked the tour to visit caves and look for dolphins in a boat with a glass bottom. The boat itself didn't have it, just the tiny boat, they pulled behind it. We left with a thirty minute delay, without any explanation. They didn't bring us into caves, just drove by them. On the way back, they didn't stop to... More

Overcrowded boat, no swim offered, didn't get to go to the caves because of rough sea. You would think experienced seaman would know about water an weather conditions ahead of time. Paid 27 euros to watch lots of people vomiting.

Waste of money. The trip out the caves was ok. Luckily we were sitting in the front. It was in the sun but on the way back we were happy we were away from diesel fumes. Not enough room for everyone to be sitting outside. Luckily we had only paid 16 euros for the boat trip and swim. Those who... More

Booked on programme 3 of the Liana - Grotto Route - what a disappointment! Miserable Crewe, overcrowded boat (they didn't use the Llana) no information about the surrounding area or places of interest en route. When we anchored (no idea where because no info given) so people on programme 2 could have a "fantastic ride on glass bottom boat" no... More

VILAMOURA, KIOSK 10 BIG GAME FISHING TERRIBLE. Too crowd, uncomfortable, but the most amazing thing was when staff prepared the rods told us do not touch rods. Were 12 people and caught nothing. At the end staff let us roll up the rods and almost all rods were empty. Interesting how u can catch the fish on empty hook? The... More
