The Action of one February 1625 was a naval engagement between a Portuguese fleet and an allied Anglo-Dutch fleet, that took place on 1 to 24 February 1625 in the Persian gulf. Although an allied tactical victory, with the Anglo-Dutch force inflicting several times their losses on the Portuguese, it resulted in a strategic Portuguese victory as they were able to regain the control of the Persian gulf.
