    “What a great experience! If you are looking for a luxurious boat, plenty of snacks and drinks, and a crew that knows where to go to see dolphins, I recommend you book online, as we did, with Lux Charters. We left the Vilamoura Marina and went a few miles offshore to see the dolphins. We were extremely lucky to see a large pod of dolphins off the bow. The crew tried to keep a safe distance, but it was as though the dolphins wanted to play alongside the boat. The boat was very spacious and clean and had a changing room with a shower which we used after our swim. We saw lots of caves, and the skipper was able to manoeuvre the boat into Benagil Cave – totally a mind-boggling experience. We ended the day with a breathtaking sunset, sipping champagne and having a piece of birthday cake. This was the best birthday present ever!”


    What a splendid day on the boat! Highly recommend! We saw the caves, beaches, dolphins, and were able to do a bit of kayaking. The food and drinks were fantastic, the crew was amazing and couldn’t do enough to make our day special. We will be returning next year!


    This experience with Azure Luxury Charters was the best experience I have ever had on the beautiful Algarve waters. The crew, service, food, drinks, and environment was outstanding. Highly recommend. Can’t wait to go again!


    “The experience was breathtaking. Everything was just better than perfect. We were warmly welcomed at the parking spot to guide us to the yacht. The yacht was beautiful. We had the Sunseeker 50, which was simply amazing. Welcomed by the crew with cheese and a cava we started our cruise. The crew was so friendly and fun. The tour they choose for us was pretty and a lot of fun. We were able to use the stand-up paddle and the RIB, which was on board.
    We booked dinner on board and were able to eat during watching the sunset. The food was so delicious. The taste was excellent. At the end of the trip, we also got surprised with a wonderful birthday cake for my dad.

    We also were lucky that we had a photographer on board, which was so worth it. I am so looking forward to the videos and pictures which were made. We had a little sneak peek onboard and they looked incredible.

    Thank you so much for this wonderful time. My dad had the best birthday ever and I am so thankful you made it so special. Everything was just perfect and so well thought of.

    This experience is a must-do when you are in the Algarve.”

    “Wow, we had an amazing time with Lux Charters! We decided to take the Half Day & Sunset cruise and we just can’t get over the stunning sunset. During the afternoon we cruised along the coast and visited Benagil Cave – a must-see. Totally spectacular! The kids kayaked to the beach in the cave while the adults took photos, soaked up the sun, and sipped on cold bubbly – our glasses were never empty! If you are thinking of going to Portugal, you must go have a day on a private yacht and see the stunning coastline. Lux Charters is in Vilamoura Marina – we will be joining the awesome crew again next year! Highly recommend this adventure!”


    “I knew I wanted to take the family on a cruise, but I didn’t know which cruise to pick. Having been on other cruises that really were subpar I decided to give Lux Charters a go this year. The staff at Lux Charters were very polite and friendly on the phone and recommended the Half Day & Sunset Cruise. The crew met our group at the meeting point and welcomed us aboard with cold drinks and snacks. We cruised west along the coastline stopping to swim and paddleboard at several of the caves. The boat was amazingly clean, spacious, and steady in the sea. The crew was very professional and pointed out various landforms for us. The day was fantastic, and we ended back at Vilamoura Marina just as the sun was setting – spectacular! We could not have picked a nicer group to charter with – highly recommend going with Lux Charters.”


    “It was amazing! We used the kayaks to go to the beach. We also had a great time exploring the caves. Highly recommend the B. Happy for a day on the ocean!”
