Capitão nemo company


Capitão Nemo is a small company but with a great ambition: simply to serve well and aim for excellence.
We offer various services, from recreational such as boat tours, scuba diving tours and training; to professional services as maintenance, sea rescue and salvage and underwater specialized works.

The team… we are 3 people (and Pipoca), but with the experience, attitude and common sense combined with good humour and wellbeing. This is the main feeling that we want to convey to you – our customer.


“Capitão Nemo I” is a typical rescue boat adapted for tourism with capacity for 20 people which guarantees exceptional safety conditions, being unsinkable due to the air chambers around it.

It’s composed by jockey seats, which are wider than usual, providing more comfort on fantastic rides; and by bench seats, one behind the captain which provides less exposure to weather conditions, being ideal for seniors or families with children, babies in arms, or simply if you want more privacy.

For a more comfortable journey in terms of space, we limit ourselves to 16 passengers. In this way, the conditions for an unforgettable, exciting adventure with a dose of adrenaline are guaranteed. Are you ready?

Superbe expérience avec un équipage au top Nous avons beaucoup aimé cette visite en bateau avec ma soeur. Merci à l’équipage pour l’accueil chaleureux, tout était au au top! Voir les dauphins de près, c’était juste magique et la visite des grottes/algarve très joli. Nous recommandons! Le petit plus de la visite: notre compagnon de bord, l’adorable chien Pipoca :)
Great boat trip- definitely worth doing!! Amazing boat trip - Captain Pedro & Danielle were both fantastic, so friendly, fun and helpful. They tried so hard to find some dolphins for us and eventually managed to find a pod. We then did the caves which was fantastic. Pedro was a great pilot and Danielle was really knowledgeable.

Diversión a bordo Ha sido una excursión súper divertida, sentaron a los niños delante y Daniela interactuó mucho con ellos y con nosotros. El capitán Pedro genial también paraba bastante dentro de las grutas. En los momentos de navegación iba súper rápido y pudimos disfrutar muchísimo. Recomendable 💯 Olga
