On this eco-friendly boat tour, an experienced skipper will guide you through the lagoon, its beautiful channels, and marshlands. You will approach numerous species of birds that inhabit this protected area without any disturbance.

This small-group boat tour of Ria Formosa is limited to 10 people, offering an intimate experience and a wonderfully relaxing end to the day watching the sun go down over the lagoon. Soak up the stunning natural surroundings and the beautiful views over the Old Town of Faro as you experience a beautiful sunset and cruise back to the Marina of Faro.

This is a great trip to enjoy with your family and friends. Sit back, relax, and treat your loved ones to a magical outing onboard an eco-friendly boat tour in Ria Formosa.

Went with my girlfriend, it was such a nice experience and being able to watch the sunset with friendly people just made our night. Was an unexpected trip and I'm so glad we did it
Splendid trip, relaxed...

Splendid trip, relaxed and quiet. There were just 3 of us in a boat. Actually, it was electric catamaran which doesn’t make any noise. That made the trip very special as you can enjoy birds singing. Special thanks to the capitan!
Highly recommended
