    “If Carlsberg did days out, then this would be it. This was our second day out on BHappy, and once again the entire team are just a joy to be around. The booking is simple and straightforward, with the confidence of the deposit being paid through PayPal. On the day, the financial formalities are done in minutes in the office on the Marina in Vilamoura with José, then he escorts us on a two minute walk to the boat, where our breakfast was awaiting us. There is no nicer way to start the day, than with a gorgeous breakfast, beautifully prepared fresh cut fruit and then breakfast cooked on board by Miriam. Ricardo and Erica were our Captain and host for the day, after welcoming us to “Our” boat we were invited to leave our shoes behind, for the day, it is a great way to acknowledge that you are going to chill for the day.
    From the get go, everything is relaxed and calm, nothing is a problem and nothing is too much trouble. My daughters hooked into the boats sound system, so they got to play their vibe, at whatever volume they wanted. When we anchored up for lunch, it had to be prefaced by a swim in the clear blue Algarve waters, and it is just spectacular. Later Ricardo gently manoeuvred the 53 foot boat in and around the caves in the cliff face, it is a joy to watch a pro in action, he spins it around like its just a shopping trolly, a large, expensive shopping trolly mind you.
    BHappy is a magnificent craft, we were a group of five, but it can comfortably take eight, a full suite downstairs, allowed everyone to take a shower (great shower actually) and get changed for dinner in Vilamoura that evening, bring your hairdryer, GHD and whatever else you think you might want, just dump them all in the downstairs cabin on arrival and forget them until the evening. Bring sunscreen…!! It is sunny out there and warm.
    A most memorable day, we have returned and we will return again and again. Not everyone gets to live this way, so if you can do it for a day, grab it with both hands and take lots of photos, you will love looking at them when you are back in a wet and cold Northern Europe.”


    “Excellent service – 6 stars for the crew. We booked our charter online and we got the date, charter, and boat we wanted. Highly recommend online booking in advance of your trip to the Algarve. The boat was luxurious, the crew were very knowledgeable, and the service was first class. Never had to ask for a drink refill and there was always a variety of fresh snacks and fruit available. We will be returning to Lux Charters next year – thank you!”


    “Awesome! We had 8 people in our party and we could not have wanted for anything as the crew took care of everything. We cruised with dolphins in the morning and visited a lot of caves along the coastline. The best treat of all was visiting Benagil Cave – truly breathtaking. The skipper manoeuvred the boat inside the cave and the photos we got were out of this world! Later, we stopped for lunch at a beachside seafood restaurant. The seafood was very tasty. In the afternoon we jumped in the water for a refreshing swim. There is a change room, a couple of bathrooms, and a shower on board. Our glasses were always full and local pastries were available on our way back to the marina. Simply a wonderful experience. If you are coming to the Algarve you must visit Lux Charters. Thank you and we will see you next year!


    Had a fabulous day with my friends. Drinks kept coming which was great since it was my birthday and the guys and I wanted to celebrate.


    “What a great trip!! If you are considering chartering a boat out of Vilamoura I would highly recommend using Lux Charters. The boat is immaculate, the food was great and the staff onboard were first class friendly – and gave our family a great tour of the caves in the area.”


    “We can’t say enough about the amazing time we had with Lux!!!!! We had been on other charters and had a so-so experience as many promise a lot but fail to deliver. Lux restored our faith in luxury charters. Everything from the food, the service and the amazing selection of beverages made the day something we will never forget. We can best sum it up by saying this is the best way to experience a luxurious day on the water. We are returning to Portugal this year and have booked the full day and sunset cruise. Highly recommended!!!”


    “From the booking process to the cruise everything was to the highest standard and I would highly recommend! I booked as a surprise for my partners birthday and lucky for us the boat we had hired was in for maintenance so we were upgraded and WOW the boat was insane and the service was incredible. The skippers were great fun and even went out of their way to provide a birthday cake. It’s almost two years ago since our first trip and when we return we will definitely be using B. Happy again!”


    “I booked this cruise online for my son to celebrate his graduation. Everything was taken care of – from the time we arrived a crew member retrieved us and guided us to the yacht. We were welcomed on the yacht with a cold beverage and a fruit plater. My son was so excited that he and his friends could swim, kayak and paddleboard. We had a private chef prepare lunch aboard and it was fabulous. We saw dolphins and the boys were able to send their friends videos of the dolphins as there was wifi onboard. I thought the best part of the cruise was the Benagil Cave – spectacular colours! We are looking forward to another cruise with Lux Charters next year – highly recommend!”


    “Totally recommend B. Happy (our boat name)! The boat was incredible and so was the crew attending to our every need. We cruised west up the coastline from Vilamoura and stopped in at many of the caves. The crew were truly knowledgeable about the area and supplied lots of background to each of the caves. We stopped for lunch at a seafood restaurant – the seafood was fresh and tasty! The crew of B. Happy brought us back and forth to the boat in their RIB – we felt so special. After lunch we visited Benagil Cave – this place is magical! After a family photo in the cave and a refreshing swim, we headed back to Vilamoura Marina. A truly wonderful experience with Lux Charters!”


    “We booked two Full Day Charters online in March – three easy steps and the website processed our request quickly. We had two wonderful days on B. Happy in August. The first day we went along the coastline to the Benagil Sea Caves and stopped at a beachside seafood restaurant for lunch. Benagil was amazing! The restaurant sent out tenders to fetch us for lunch which made us feel really special. We had a reserved table and I have never tasted fresher seafood. The second day we went the opposite way out of Vilamoura Marina along the coastline to Ria Formosa. The water was smooth, warm, and brilliant blue in colour. We had 8 in our group – the kids went kayaking and swimming while the adults sipped on chilled champagne. A catered lunch on board was delicious. I recommend booking online to reserve your date early as we did. The service, crew, food & drinks, and boat were outstanding – highly recommend the Full Day cruise with Lux Charters! We will be going again next year, for sure!


    “It was all brilliant!” – 6 stars for the crew!


    “It was excellent! – 7 stars for the crew!”


    “This experience was amazing! I would recommend the Full Day and Dolphins Charter on the B. Happy to everyone. We went on the kayaks, big joe floatie, and we even went in the caves. The food was amazing and there was a bunch of beverages to stay cool. It was the best time of my life and I can’t wait to do it again! The service was six-star and they were very kind to us. Again I would recommend this charter, it was the best time ever!


    “It is absolutely unacceptable to visit the Algarve Coast and not spend a day off the land and on the sea. And there is no better way to explore the grottos and unique cliff faces that line the southern coastline of Portugal than to go yachting with Lux Charters. Their ultra-luxury charter boat is perfect to enjoy the intimate experience of a lifetime for two, or bring up to 8 guests for wedding, hen or bachelor parties with champagne flowing. Soak in a day at sea and explore some of the most photogenic spots on the Algarve coast that are only accessible by water – recording memories that will last a lifetime. Take to the water to explore the unseen Algarve.”
