Tourists who visit us often ask this question. They ask us how we deal with the time when fewer foreigners and nationals visit the Algarve to relax or enjoy unique experiences.
The end of the season is the time to slow down the company, lower the sails of our boats and start taking stock of the summer that has passed and the days and days of work to guarantee the best experiences for those who visit us. The boats, most notably the Bom Dia and the Falcão Veloz, go up to the shipyard, and we begin to analyse “where to start”. There are always fundamental restorations to be made to the hull, the electrical parts, making sure the propellers are in the best condition, analysing the wear on the sails and, of course, touching up the paintwork that gives our boats so much charm.
This summer has been another huge and enjoyable test of our team’s ability to see each trip as a challenge where each holidaymaker has their own expectations, and we try to exceed them. The stalls have tried to attract the most curious tourists who visit our city, the office has managed the logistics of each trip and ensured the great relationship we have with our partners in the hotel industry and the Lagos marina, and each member of the boats has ensured the safety and experience of our trips.
A time to relax and strengthen team spirit
And because it’s necessary to relax after the high season, in November we brought the season to a close with a moment of leisure: we went kayaking with the company “Ponta da Piedade Tours” with all our team and their team. A way to decompress and celebrate the summer that has passed for these two companies from the same group.
In addition to this kayak trip, every year we celebrate the effort with an end-of-season lunch between the entire Bom Dia, Ponta da Piedade and SeaLife team, where we tell the stories of the summer, toast personal and professional achievements and share photos of our professional year.
