Your experience


  • Treat yourself to a relaxing boat trip from Faro
  • Discover the breathtaking landscape of the Natural Park Ria Formosa
  • Pamper yourself with a relaxing day in a paradise yet to be discovered


Cruise through this dreamlike coastal lagoon and learn everything about the natural ecosystem of Ria Formosa and the culture and traditions of the region from a long-time skipper.

Your first stop is the Ilha Deserta. Stroll along the island's long sandy beaches before heading to the island of Culatra, home to one of the most important fishing communities in the Eastern Algarve and a charming harbour. If you wish, you can even enjoy a meal in one of the local restaurants.

Once back on board, you'll learn about shellfish farming and the oyster beds of Ria Formosa. Then visit an abandoned beach where you can even dive in the crystal clear water during the summer months. On the boat you will listen to some historical stories about hangars on the island of Culatra and their importance for defence during the First World War.

Your last stop is on the island of Farol, where a real lighthouse awaits you. Get to know the typical vegetation of this beautiful wetland, considered one of the most important wetlands for birds in Portugal, before slowly returning to the city of Faro.
