    Value for money, relaxed sunset boat trip

    We enjoyed the sunset boat trip with Ricardo who talked a bit about Ria Formosa National Park and took us to beautiful Faro Peninsula for a 15minute stop off.sunset on the way back was beautiful. Worth the money, friendly service and chat with Ricardo. Small catamaran..take your own drinks/snack if you want. We had 2 children with us 4&7, they really enjoyed it too. Sandra was there to meet us, great customer service all round. Nice little trip if u just want to get out on the water for a short trip.

    Un crucero precioso y un guía, Carlos, muy entregado a los viajeros. Se adaptó a todos los idiomas presentes en el catamaran y nos explicó todos los detalles del parque natural, las aves, vimos caer el sol desde la Ría...precioso! Muy recomendable! Además la chica que nos recogió en el muelle muy amable y atenta. Muy recomendado!
