We have Jeeps, mini-busses and coaches available for groups of all sizes. We’ll usually include airport transfers as part of your package unless requested otherwise. Our transport options are also available for evening out returns to Funchal and various day-trips to surrounding areas.

You can choose between Bed & Breakfast, half board or all-inclusive for your team building trip in Madeira. We can also add extras like a drinks-reception package, packed-lunch and BBQ nights. Just add it to your ‘get quote’ options and we will get that included in your team building package!

Pictures & Highlights Video

On our hosted team building adventures we take our GoPro cameras and shoot some great pictures & videos. We’ll send these to you afterwards and even edit a personal highlights video for your team, the best way to remember your corporate trip in Madeira!

Daniel and Heleen from Big Blue Adventures helped the Passle team to have the most amazing team... building trip in Madeira. Our days were filled with a big array of adventures, including canyoning (OMG what fun!!!), mountain biking, 4x4 discovery tour, wine tasting, tobogganing, poncha making, dolphin watching, sailing, swimming, tasting local amazing food, and more. Both Dan and Heleen and the local guides were fabulous, fun to have around, really good at their job. On top of it, all the silliness was dutifully and expertly documented. Thank you for the most epic times, guys!read more

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 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!

Why We Love This…

“We love Madeira because the island offers tropical feels with hundreds of colourful flowers & plants, epic hikes through mountain ranges & Levadas and a spectacular coastline made for watersports. Some of my favourite things are hiking to one of the highest points of the island Pico Arieiro, exploring Madeira’s natural areas on a Jeep tour, wandering around the cobbled streets of Funchal and abseiling down waterfalls on a canyoning adventure.”
