About Formosamar - Pure Nature Experiences

We are an ecotourism company operating in the Algarve.

We organize boat trips, activities and tours in the Ria Formosa Natural Park and in the coast of the Algarve.


Our mission is to promote the Ria Formosa, one of the most important protected areas in Europe, recently elected as one of the 7 Natural Wonders of Portugal. By creating this company, its founders wanted to offer a wide and integrated offer of boat trips, tours, activities and nature tourism experiences in the Ria Formosa.
