Pleasant moment

Very good time spent with Patricia our captain and guide who spoke to us in English very easy to understand and even made the effort to translate what she could in French. Nice time with champagne, and other surprises while being guided by our captain who explained the operation of the lagoon and its inhabitants. Thank you

Spectacular birthday surprise

I bought this as a surprise gift for my husband (the kind of man who has everything!). I had great and easy communication with the organizers. They helped me make this a surprise, they respected my seafood option requests and even purchase a small birthday cake and candles. The boat was a small traditional Portuguese fishing boat, and the tour was just the 2 of us. The captain told us info about the Ria Formosa area. Then 30 minutes before sunset he went up onto one of the sand dunes, told us to go for a walk, when we returned a small table was set up in the sand with our champagne and seafood - just in time for sunset! The captain left us alone for about 30 minutes and we had the area to ourselves - very beautiful and romantic! Perfect!

It was a very nice ride full of little attention

Even if we were late they waited for us. Activity itself is great, lack of description to get to the place, no specific address so GPS can't find; but the boat ride at sunset is just great.
