Isle are so pleased to have chosen to work with Big Blue Adventures for our 2019 strategy retreat.... BBA were fantastic at communicating with us during the organisational phase, ensuring we had all the necessary information and facilitating our needs. They organised an incredible agenda which allowed us to achieve our team building and strategic planning goals with a good balance of meetings and social activities. The hostel chosen for our stay was clean, modern, had a fantastic view with a short walk to the beach and had ample room for our needs. Some incredible, unexpected touches were a welcome bag for everyone with really thoughtful gifts, a bar tab and a highlights video at the end, we even managed to do a team beach clean. Dan, Heleen, Igor and Nuno were so accommodating, especially when we had some last minute logistical changes and sorted everything out for us. We are really thankful to Big Blue for making our retreat so special and look forward to working with them again in the future.read more

We booked a corporate retreat with Daniel and the Big Blue Adventures team. Right from the start... Daniel was accommodating and made the booking process extremely easy and advised us on the best packages for our team.We settled on the coasteering package in the Algarve, and it turned out to be the perfect choice.We were met by Nuno and the team, who picked all 16 of us up on time at our hotel (they even brought us pastel de natas!) Right from the start, they ensured everything we needed was sorted. The coasteering activity was awesome and the guys leading it were extremely helpful, professional and fun. The lunch that was provided was perfect for after the activities, and the restaurant setting of Benagil was fantastic! Nuno even brought us for and unexpected hike and tour around a local cove.Big blue adventures made the whole experience easy for us, and ensured we had the best possible time during our short stay in Portugal! The team loved it, and I will definitely be booking again for next year!read more

Heleen on corporate getaway in Portugal

Why We Love This…

“Trying new outdoor adventures in a country like Portugal is always fun, but it’s a lot nicer to share the experience with a group of like-minded colleagues. Seeing a team come together whilst pushing their boundaries, is why we love doing what we do.”

Heleen – Co-Owner
