Know More about this tour

Your tour begins at Formosamar, located on Doca de Recreio de Faro, at 12:30pm. Here, you'll climb onto your colorful boat and begin a tour of the wetlands.

Throughout the journey, your guide points out native birds and explains the history of the area. Considered one of the most important wetlands for aquatic birds in Portugal,Ria Formosa National Park is home to birds such as the white stork, little egret, and the spoonbill. Waders are most abundant during winter, although birds like the whimbrel, the turnstone and the grey plover are a constant presence. The trip continues towards the islands of the Natural Park through oyster and clams farms.

Here you will have the opportunity to see one of the most important economical activities in the Algarve and very interesting species such as the black-tailed Godwit, the oystercatcher, and many others.

Towards the point where the lagoon meets the sea, stop and enjoy this small paradise. This is an important reproduction area for the little tern and the kentish plover. During wintertime you can often observe the sandwich sern and the greater flamingo.

During your trip back, you'll have many opportunities to observe other species while your boat sails calmly through the channels of the national park in direction to the city of Faro.
