Excellent trip. Great value for money. Ricardo’s knowledge of the local area/ flora and fauna was great. The sunset was unforgettable. Now we can say we have been to the most Southernly point in Portugal!
I had read the reviews before booking this trip and had high expectations! We were not disappointed!! We booked the trip at the kiosk by the marina. The guy was also called Miguel and was very helpful. The boat was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Miguel told us lots of information about the lagoon and all the creatures living there. We saw about 5 or 6 different types of birds and crabs. Miguel was very enthusiastic and knew the lagoon like the back of his hand. The two islands that we went to were beautiful and sufficient time was given on each island and again Miguel gave us lots of information about the islands and what to see there. The islands are both beautiful . There are sunbeds available on Ilha Deserta and umberellas. The restaurant is really nice on Deserta Island too . Our return trip to Faro was as enjoyable as the one out. We all enjoyed the trip and was one of the highlights of our stay in Faro Thank you Miguel for a great day !
Amazing captain Miguel who made the trip so good. Really enjoyed it . It was our 25th anniversary & Miguel took lots of pictures for us & really made it a trip to remember.
A great trip with a friendly and knowledgeable host in Miguel who shared his personal knowledge of the environment and wildlife. I’d recommend it to anyone.
Excellent, Miguel was so funny and informative. So much fun and beautiful views too! Really a trip that was worth doing!
Fabulous sunset boat trip around Ria Formosa with Miguel who was friendly, funny and very knowledgeable host. We saw some birds and the most amazing sunset. We stopped at a couple of places for a very short walk over the sand dunes to see the waves crashing in on the deserted enourmous beaches - absolutely stunning. Also saw flamingos from afar. Amazing trip highly recommend.
The Sunset Tour was amazing! Our skipper Ricardo was very friendly and accommodating of our group. He played music while we were on the boat and gave us a little bit of history of the national park. SpaceThe boat was comfortable and was a very relaxing tour, sunset was beautiful! I recommend anybody to go on this for whether it be with a partner or friends.
Such a perfect way to see Faro and the surrounding islands! The team went above and beyond as we ran late and missed the boat. After a frantic call, they turned around the cruise to pick us up. Very grateful as the cruise was stunning, from the wildlife to the sunset to the view of Portugal from the waters. Thank you for this experience.
Went on the sunset tour with my son (well past being a teen but no category fits!) and I can’t praise it highly enough. Miguel was our skipper for the trip and what he doesn’t know about the lagoon and it’s wildlife isn’t worth knowing! He was knowledgeable, engaging and very funny. Miguel took us to the far end of Faro Beach and we got off the boat to watch the sunset over the Atlantic Ocean. It was stunning. On the way back we all had a little go at driving the boat which was good fun. We enjoyed ourselves so much that the next morning we booked the Islands Tour for that day. That was also great. We saw flamingoes, curlews, spoonbills, an osprey and other wildlife. We were lucky enough to have Miguel again and he made sure we were just as entertained and looked after as we were the evening before. If you’re going to choose a company to give you the best experience, choose this one!
This is the best boat experience that I’ve ever been on! Miguel was super funny and said a lot about Ria Formosa and islands, the trip was amazing, we stopped on each island for 45mins and it was enough to check the beautiful village in Farol island and have a nice walk in Deserta island :) I can highly recommend this company and Miguel as you can see that’s his second life living on boat and doing a tour for people :)
