This tour was very relaxing, with amazing views. We met the tour guide at the harbor and boarded a small boat. We then drove towards the islands, and our guide was telling us interesting facts about Faro and the surrounding area. We visited two islands on our tour, which was a neat experience with some breathtaking views of the Atlantic ocean. One of the islands has a beautiful beach, with a small restaurant on it. Even though it was not warm enough to go in the water, we enjoyed strolling on the beach and the views.

Faro is an excellent location to use for travel to the rest of the Algarve. Trains and buses connect to all points of the
South Portugal and beyond.Flights are convenient.The culinary adventures can be blended with comfort food and
delicious desserts.Most of all,local service people and the citizens are caring and attentive to your questions.
This was a brilliant trip to enjoy and relax oneself.

Boat ride spoilt by the weather - raining for much of the trip. Catamaran itself was good as was the skipper Fernando. I'd have liked a bit more time spent on the bird life/watching than on the two stops but I guess the weather did not help. Nice trip though.

Seemless and hassle free from start to finish. Boat has luxury seating so a very comfortable ride. Great timings and you get to spend plenty of time looking around the islands. Highly recommended....
Tip: Take a hat as the journey back in can be a bit blowy. :-)

Francisco was excellent, very knowledgeable about the wildlife and history of the area, plus has a great sense of humor. The boat was very clean and my kids had a great time. It was a highlight of our 6 days in the Algarve.

One of the best boat trips we have done. Plenty of interest and a superb boatman Pedro who had good knowledge and a good sense of humour.
