The tour starts in the Marina de Faro and/or from Portas do Mar from where we depart to visit one of the 7 Natural Wonders of Portugal.

Throughout the boat trip we explore the enormous biological wealth of the Ria Formosa navigating through secondary channels in the direction of one of the islands of this Natural Park.

Departures – Faro
- Doca de Recreio de Faro
- Cais da Porta Nova (Portas do Mar)

We organize these trips everyday throughout the year with several daily departures.

As we approach the islands you will have the opportunity to visit the clams and oyster farms, where the shell-fishing algarvian men work hard and where some of the most emblematic birds feed in this Natural Park.

We continue towards a small paradise of virgin sands and translucent waters where the lagoon meets the sea. Here we make a short stop so you can enjoy the most from this place where you can take a short walk through the beach, sun bath, take a dip in crystalline waters and marvel with the variety of shells that decorate the dune.

On our trip back to Faro you will have the opportunity to enjoy an excellent view over the city.
