It’s Time to Bring Your Team Back Together!Whilst working from home has undoubtedly had its positives, the lack of social interaction will inevitably take its toll… Zoom calls just aren’t the same as real life conversations! A corporate retreat is a fantastic way of helping your team get to know each other in a new environment outside of the workplace. It’s a break from the daily hustle allowing quality time to focus on the business, the purpose of the company & to work on the team’s synergy. We know that new experiences and exciting adventures really help to drive camaraderie amongst colleagues, that’s why a Big Blue Adventure retreat has a focus on watersports, outdoor activities & a hit of wellness to produce a unique setting for your team to enjoy.
Dan and the team managed to plan a weekend of adventures and memories that all 11 of us enjoyed from start to finish. We had accomodation arranged in the centre of Lisbon, excursions that proved incredibly exciting and lots of opportunity to eat and drink to our hearts content.
Particular highlights included a cheese and wine tour and roof top bar drinks, all of it accompanied by amazing scenery and great company.
The whole booking experience was seamless and I consider it great value for money. I can’t recommend it enough and would encourage anyone organising a group trip away to consider big blue adventures.
And I can’t wait to go back!!!
Dan and the team did really well to cater
For our groups full experience.
Not only did we get to go Coasteering we also had tuk tuk tour visiting all the great vistas of Lisbon that most don’t know about.
Roof top and cheese and wine bars and all the other delights that Lisbon has to offer.
Fed and watered after each excursion.
And the Portuguese wine is to die for 👏👏.
Can’t wait for our next trip away with the big blue Adventures.
Plus I hear they are branching out to other country’s 👌🤞
Everything was beautiful organised by a legendary couple who was there to lift our spirits up while documenting everything!
Don’t even think about it, just book something with them, you won’t regret it!
Ps. Fabulous Welsh vegan cakes from the goodie bag were fabulously delicious 😊
Add to that that Dan and Heleen are both fantastic, happy to help in any way they can and always super friendly. The local tour guides that helped on our jeep tour and some other activities were also fantastic and made the whole experience something truly amazing.
We enjoyed it so much I decided to organise my brothers stag do through them as well. The whole weekend was perfectly organised from start to finish.
Everything was sorted for us. From our activities coasteering and sea kayaking to our food/drinks and a brewery tour. It was so good being able to switch off and enjoy our weekend knowing Big Blue had taken care of everything.
I couldn’t recommend Big Blue Adventures highly enough and can’t wait for my next adventure with them!
They’ve definitely made us more adventurous!! Looking forward to our next Big Blue Adventure
Thanks again!!! And see you soon.
The day was a lot of fun - Dan took care of every little detail, ensuring it was a memorable day for all and genuinely cared that we all had a great time.
Could not recommend Big Blue Adventures enough and hope another event comes along that means we'd book again!
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!
Rob (Callum’s Stag - 5th May 19)
We had a few problems in the build up to the weekend but Heleen was awesome and helped resolve them, I can not recommend big blue enough and will defiantly use this company again!!
The children had an amazing time, and so did all the adults too! An action packed schedule every single day, they made sure that the schedule was flexible to react to any changing weather conditions, and even went above and beyond with movie nights in a improvised cinema, prizes every evening for 'Adventurer of the day', and celebrated Halloween with lots of decorations and sweets etc etc, it was fantastic!
Thank you Dan & Heleen,
Would 100% recommend.
I would recommend the food on the beach afterwards.
Handled a big group - perfect for a stag weekend!
Berger Stag weekend 11/08/18
Don't normally leave reviews for anything but the team leaded by Nuno was that good they deserve at least 5 minutes of my time to give some 5 start feedback.
*Picked up on time
*Greeted with a smile and Portuguese cake
*Fancy minibus with a McDonald's pitstop 😂
*Organisation was on point
* Two experienced instructors which helped us with any problems during the day
*Topped off with a nice meal on the beach and plenty beer.
First time I've ever done this and I will definatley consider doing coasteering at some point in the future in Wales.
A massive thanks to all at Big Blue Adventures and especially Nuno and the team in Lisbon.
My boyfriend and I did canyoning in Wales with Big Blue Adventures: the location was breathtaking and we were in great company. I learned it's a good thing to do at least once in your life just to tear everything up and jump from a waterfall, just do it!
Thanks for a great time!
The footage and photos were also great.
This trip made the stag do so would definitely recommend speaking with Big Blue for groups of friends. That said I want to go back with my partner, it really is great for all if you have a big of adventure in you!
Can not recommend this enough, get involved!!!�
Personally for me it wasn't just an activity holiday to Portugal, it was a chance for me to face a number of my own issues and overcome a number of fears. I'm proud to say, with the help of my friends and Dan & Heleen I smashed it.
For some it was a holiday, for me it was a life changing experience and has made me a stronger person.
I can't thank you both enough.
Will absolutely be seeing you soon!
Thank you xxx
We stayed at North18 which was perfect for a stag, having our own place with all the amenities we could want was great and Dan made sure there were loads of beers waiting for us on arrival, together with all the stuff we needed for breakfast.
Our main activity for the weekend was canyoning which went down really well with the group. We had a great time and with Dan sorting out minibus transport and a stop off for a pub lunch on the way back, it made it hassle free.
The weekend went really well, with Dan being on time for everything and contactable before and throughout the weekend. I was very impressed and would recommend Big Blue Adventures to anyone.
They organised everything from transport to post-adventure pub lunches.
I'd thoroughly recommend them 😀
