About us

We - that's Andrea and Frank from Germany.

We came to Boa Vista for the first time in 2009 - as holidaymakers. And we immediately fell in love with the island. Our second stay followed just a few months later. By then we had already decided that we wanted to live and work here.

The idea of guided tours in German came to us when we were travelling around the island with a local.


Then the planning phase began and of course everything had to be "organised" in Germany. At the beginning of 2011, the time had come for us to arrive on Boa Vista. We had already rented a house and our container with our first car and various other things had already arrived on Boa Vista.


It didn't take long before we were travelling around the island with our first guests. Our guests liked what we did and so we got our first recommendations, both on the internet and by word of mouth. Since then, we have gained many regular guests, some of whom are now even very good friends.


In 2012, a boat owner here on Boa Vista approached us and wanted to work with us. We really enjoyed working on the sea and so, after just two years, we decided to get our own boat here.


Together with a friend in Germany, who is a boat builder and knows his way around, we searched the Internet for suitable offers. We found a few interesting properties in Spain and Frank travelled there with our friend. Unfortunately, it soon became apparent that the pictures of the boats on the internet didn't have much to do with reality. So Frank came back without having achieved anything. As this "trip" to Spain was pretty disappointing, we put our project on ice again for the time being.


But about a year later, by chance, we found the then "Pochola" in southern Spain on the internet. The owner was a German, so we thought it was worth another try. We went to Spain again and Frank came back with a signed contract. The big adventure of transferring the boat from Spain to Boa Vista then followed in October. Since then, we have welcomed many guests not only on our own car, but also on our own boat - the "Simply No Stress".


A strong company finds an investor even in bad times. And so, in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic, we were able to call a new boat our own. Together with our investor, we bought the Al Custom 21 "blue fever" - a boat that is extremely popular with deep-sea fishermen. With this addition, we will be expanding our range with "Big Game Fishing" from September 2021.


At the end of the whale watching season in 2023 we had a very interesting conversation with the biologists working on our boat that season. It was a discussion about: What would be the perfect boat for you for whale watching trips? And the answer? A Zodiac boat but with the view of the "Simply No Stress". The height of the "Simply No Stress" is a great advantage for whale sightings, but the Zodiac gives different views on the whales, is more fast and very maneuverable.


So a new idea was born and the planning starts. Followed by a lot of internet research we finally found a company with a very good offer and a perfect customer service. Of course it takes a bit to get the boat to Boavista. Its builed according to our specifications - what needs about 2,5 month - and the shipping to Boavista takes another 2,5 months. But soon it will arrive.


In the meantime, our team has of course grown, because we cannot realise all our offers with just two people. We now have 7 permanent employees (5 of whom work on our 3 boats) and thus provide 7 families with a steady (and above-average) income.


Our island trips we are still guiding only in german language, but on the boats of course we are guiding also in english.


We are all looking forward to welcoming you here at Boa Vista.
