Its a fantastic way of spending half a day in Ria Formosa Natural Park and getting to places that are otherwise covered by water or too difficult to get to. Our guide Alex, who was born on one of the islands we visited, had wonderful knowledge of the park and its history. Do try the oysters when you there, they do not come any fresher.
Excellent trip and knowledge from the guide. It was not at all what we expected, in fact much better, with island visits and a nice smooth river cruise. Highly recommend this trip, it was sunny, windy and not the warmest day and still great, I would definitely do this again especially in the hotter weather as you can then dive off the boat and swim in the estuary, which is very clear. Great to see the locals who live on the island and their own way of life.
This is a great tour. You get to walk around on some of the islands. Ricardo our tour guide, was excellent.
This tour was fantastic, Jaime the tour guide made it really special, he is very knowledgable. The islands are gorgeous, it was so relaxing walking around the various islands looking for shells. This tour was really something special, I learned a lot about the area. 10/10.
Fantastic trip. Our Captain, Claudio, was excellent very informative and he went out of his way to ensure that we enjoyed our trip. The boat was comfortable too. A max of 12 per boat so everything felt more personal. Try and book a day when the sun is shining to ensure the fantastic sea colours not usually a problem in Faro!. I would definitely recommend this trip.
Brill trip out lovely weather lovely group on board Pedro was very informative and humorous would definitely recommend
Our skipper/guide was Claudio and he couldn't have been more helpful or knowledgeable. We were landed at 4 very different sites and Claudio suggested various options for the best views, beaches, restaurants and points of interest so we could fully enjoy each stop.
This trip was excellent for money and was a highlight of our holiday.
I would highly recommend this trip for anyone staying in the Faro area. I bought it as a present for my partner and it was great. Our tour guide Pedro was knowledgeable and humorous, we saw loads of sights with each island being very different. The trip overall is superb value for money. I would advise others to take water with you for the 4.5 trip although shops/bars are available on most islands and also take/wear swimming kit as there was a chance for a dip in the sea too which was great to cool down in the Portugese sun. Overall highly recommended!
This is a wonderful way to learn about the Ria Formosa whilst enjoying cool sea breezes relaxing in a comfortable boat. Pedro, our guide, was both hospitable and very well-informed. We stopped at each island for about 30-40 minutes which was ideal to take a swim or grab a quick coffee. I highly recommend this boat trip.
What a fabulous 4.5 hours! Piedro our guide and very competent captain was superb. He immediately engaged with everybody on board from 2 years to 70 years and his language skills were outstanding. can't recommend this tour enough. Best to pre-book online before you go as it's very popular.
