Enjoy a relaxing 5-hour boat trip through the beautiful Ria Formosa Nature Park from the marina of Faro, and discover the region’s impressive biodiversity as you cruise through this stunning coastal lagoon and visit its islands.

Depart from the Faro marina and cruise down the calm waters of Ria Formosa in a comfortable boat with sun shade. Float through this stunning coastal lagoon and learn from a knowledgeable skipper that will provide insight into the natural ecosystem of Ria Formosa and the culture and traditions of this area.

The first stop is on Ilha Deserta. Here you can enjoy a walk along its long white sandy seashores where you’ll find lots of beautiful and different sea shells.

The boat trip continues to Culatra Island. During this second stop, you can visit this fascinating island. This is one of the most important fishing communities in the Eastern Algarve. Take your time to wander in this fishing community and its small harbor or even enjoy a lovely meal in one of the local restaurants.

Back on board, learn about the clam farms and the oyster beds of Ria Formosa. You will witness the oyster pickers and shellfish farmers working on the tidal flats of the lagoon as your guide comments on one of the most important economic activities in Ria Formosa.

The next stop is on a deserted beach. This is a lovely spot and on summer months, you can even take a refreshing dive in crystal-clear waters surrounded by beautiful sand banks.

Continuing aboard the boat, you’ll learn about Hangares in Culatra Island and its historical importance in the anti-submarine defense during World War I. The last stop is on Farol Island. Here you may walk to the lighthouse in the small community of Farol, the southernmost beach in Portugal.

Nous avons fait une croisière sur les îles de Ria Formosa, nous étions accompagnés par Carlos qui est super gentil. C’est un guide fabuleux ; en arrivant sur l’île Culatra, il nous a très gentiment indiqué un restaurant où nous pouvions déjeuner tranquillement et dans lequel nous nous sommes régalés de poisson frais : un délice! Il nous a bien expliqué ce que l’on voyait. Les îles sont vraiment belles. Je recommande vraiment cette croisière ; nous avons passé un inoubliable après-midi. Obrigada Carlos !! :)
