Your experience

  • Explore the fascinating island of Culatra
  • Learn more about the extraordinary nature from an experienced skipper


Enjoy a relaxing 3.5-hour boat trip in the Ria Formosa Nature Park and discover the beautiful coastal lagoon of the Algarve with its islands, beaches and canals.

Cruise along the canals in a comfortable boat with sun protection and observe the typical vegetation of this beautiful swamp area, which is considered one of the most important wetlands for water birds in Portugal.

After passing Armona Island, your boat trip continues to Culatra Island. During your stay you can visit this fascinating island, its important fishing community and its small harbour. You will find that Culatra is a magical place surrounded by beautiful nature.

Learn more with your skipper about the biodiversity of this ecosystem and the history of Olhão. Pass the famous market of Olhão and the tidal mill and enjoy the beautiful landscape of this nature park at the Eastern Algarve.

Passing the shellfish farms and oyster banks, one of the most important economic activities in the region, you will witness oyster gatherers and shellfish farmers working in the lagoon's Wadden Sea.

During the summer months and depending on the tides, you can even refresh yourself in crystal clear water surrounded by beautiful sandbanks or explore the wonders of this secret place before slowly cruising back to Olhão and enjoying a spectacular view of the city.
