Thank you for your interest in Formosamar and our Ria Formosa boat tours. Let us take a moment to introduce ourselves and what we do.
Based in Faro, we provide sustainable, environmentally friendly boat tours in Ria Formosa Natural Park, the crown jewel of the stunning Algarve coastline.
This extraordinary place is a wetland of international importance made up of maze-like canals, marshes, and beautiful barrier islands. It’s also home to tens of thousands of bird species, both native and migratory, from storks to flamingos!
And the waters in and around Ria Formosa are also teeming with life, including dolphins, sea turtles, and the world’s largest concentration of seahorses.
At Formosamar, we dedicate ourselves to promoting and protecting Ria Formosa. As leaders in ecotourism, we understand our responsibilities. We love showing visitors this unique natural wonderland, but we do so with respect and sustainability in mind.
These aren’t just words for us — we are certified by the Portuguese Institute for Conservation of Nature and Biodiversity.
We have a larger fleet of boats and more staff than our competitors, so whatever Algarve adventure you’re looking for, you can find it with Formosamar.
If you have any questions for us, please feel free to get in touch.
