Discover the Ria Formosa Natural Park

What Our Customers Say

Eco-friendly Boat Tours from Faro

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.

So, what can you expect from Formosamar boat tours?


Our Ria Formosa Birdwatching Tour allows you to discover the dazzling range of bird species in the park under the guidance of an expert nature guide.

You can take your animal adventures even further with our Marine Life and Dolphin-Watching Boat Trip, which passes through Ria Formosa and out into the open ocean beyond!

If you want to take it slow and spend some time on the park’s barrier islands and pristine beaches, we think you’ll love the Boat Tour to Deserta and Farol Islands.

And for the perfect way to wrap up a day in the Algarve, look no further than our Ria Formosa Sunset Boat Trips — experience the beauty and tranquillity of an Algarve sunset in our spectacular coastal lagoon.

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.
