Come and sail with us along the famous Ponta da Piedade

During one hour and fifteen minutes, visit the caves and rock formations of the famous ‘Ponta da Piedade’ at Lagos coast.

Departing from Marina de Lagos our local skippers will show you every little secret of this outstanding coast.

Our boats are the most stable and reliable for this boat trip. They also have cushioned seats.

Our grottoes are amongst the most popular and must-see attractions of the Algarvian coast and it is easy to understand why. 

In the Lagos and Ponta da Piedade region you will find an array of grottos and cliff formations such as ‘Titanic’, ‘Elefante’, ‘Gorila’ and ‘Arco do Triunfo’ which have been named due to their likeness. 

However, the must visit hotspots have be ‘Catedral’ - the most impressive grotto of the area or, the very distinctive and pretty ‘Cozinha’ and ‘Sala’ - located at the centre of Ponta da Piedade. 

These impressive and dramatic grottos and rock formations have taken on their distinctive forms after many years of being sculpted by the crashing waves of the beautiful surrounding waters. 

It is truly breathtaking to see the stunning colours of the cliffs contrasting against the different shades of blue ocean - A true example of Mother Nature showing her creative side.

what clients say

We took the 1hr 15 minute tour to the Ponta da Piedade. It was simply fantastic. Antonio our guide was terrific in every way. He was informative as well as being great at handling the boat in rough conditions. In addition he went out of his way for our daughter whose birthday it was, allowing her to get a photo at the wheel. The tour was a great way of seeing the coast line and the amazing rock formations. I can't recommend the tour and blue fleet highly enough.


I very much enjoyed the tour. The knowledge of Antonio with not only the history of the area, but also his adeptness at maneuvering the boat in the grottoes with the waves coming in was amazing. He took us in safely to the grottoes that were available and the views were spectacular. He was very safe and gave us a very nice experience. Well worth it!


Antonio was a great guide. His English was very good, and he has a great attitude and sense of humor. We really enjoyed the tour on a sunny and windy day.


The boat trip to Ponta da Piedade is simply astonishing and you must do it if you're in the area. You go through all sorts of small caves and are given plenty of time to take photos of the scenes. The Bluefleet guide was relatively friendly and service was great - booking online couldn't be easier, checkin was simple and the boat left and arrived on time. They also limit boat occupancy to 8 (boats could probably take 20) which is great in times of covid as it allows for proper social distancing. Other companies we saw on the way seemed to be packing their boats much more tightly in.

A visita à Ponta da Piedade é obrigatória e percebe-se porquê: é uma paisagem única e tão bela! Foi a primeira vez que fiz este tipo de viagem pela zona pelas grutas algarvias e não podia ter escolhido melhor que a Bluefleet. Simpatia por parte da promotora na Marina, mas sobretudo uma palavra especial ao bem-disposto capitão Nuno que fez que aquela hora de viagem fosse memorável. A rapaziada do Porto agradece a energia e vamos recomendar a Bluefleet a quem faça o mesmo destino! Nota também para o confortável barco em que viajamos!


Un paseo por los maravillosos acantilados de Punta da Piedade. Entramos en las zonas visitables, el guía nos explicaba los lugares que veíamos con mucha amabilidad . La duración fue buena para nosotros, porque no nos apetecía estar mucho tiempo al sol, por lo que 1 hora y cuarto nos pareció perfecto.


Passeio maravilhoso e com boas condições de higiene e segurança. O guia é muito divertido e simpático, partilha o seu conhecimento com muito sentido de humor e até pára o barco para que possamos tirar as fotos que quisermos. 5 estrelas


Fantástico. Fizemos o passeio de observação das grutas e foi muito bom. Viagem segura, confortável e o Staff é impecável.

Stunning This trip is amazing! The rock formations look incredible. We didn't expect it to be this fascinating. Nice guide, moderate speed do you don't have to be afraid to fall off the boat.

Beautiful tour! We ended up on a Bluefleet grotto tour due to a miscommunication in our group, but couldn't have been happier with our choice! Unbeatable views and a friendly and knowledgeable guide made this a highlight of our trip. Thanks!

We really enjoyed that beautiful trip to the caves of Lagos. Nature is amazing here. But especially our little one (2,5 years) had a funtastic time: captain Luis was not only entertainig and professional, he had a really good vibe with all of us on the boat and was watching out especially for safety and fun of the smaller ones onboard. Bluefleet ... muito obrigada!
