Your experience

Description

Make an ecotouristic experience in the Ria Formosa on board a "saveiro" - a traditional fishing boat.

Accompanied by a nature guide, you will discover on this boat tour why the Ria Formosa was chosen as one of Portugal's seven natural wonders. As birds are one of the highlights of this nature park, they deserve our special attention on this tour.

We preferably start this tour at low tide and use the type of boat that allows us to see the birds at close range.

On this boat tour, through one of the most important wetlands for birds in Portugal, we can observe species such as the white stork, the Little Egret and the spoonbill.

The journey continues towards one of the islands of the nature park, passing mussel and oyster farms.

Waders are the most common, especially during the winter; birds such as the whimbrel, the turnstone and the plover even all year round.

Here you will have the opportunity, on the one hand, to visit one of the most important economic activities of the Ria Formosa and, on the other hand, to observe very interesting bird species such as the black-tailed godwit, the oystercatcher and many others.

At one of the points where the lagoon meets the sea we will make a stop so that you can enjoy this little paradise. This is an important breeding area for the Little Tern and the Little Ringed Plover. In winter, fire terns and pink flamingos are often sighted here.

On our return journey we will have many opportunities to observe other species while the boat glides calmly through the channels of the nature park towards Faro.

Note: The departure and arrival times, as well as the duration and routes of the activities may change depending on weather conditions, tides and other factors beyond Formosamar's control, for safety reasons without prior notice.
