  • 45 minutes

Immerse yourself in nature exploring the Ria Formosa Natural Park on this boat trip from Faro Port. Admire the native flora and fauna as you cruise through the wetlands.

Ria Formosa Boat Trip

After meeting at Faro Port, you'll embark on your cruise around Ria Formosa, which will last around 45 minutes. Climb aboard your vessel, a solar-powered boat which will take you on a peaceful tour of the wetlands without contaminating the incredible environment around you.

During your boat trip, your knowledgeable guide, an expert in local ecology, will reveal the fascinating characteristics of this region of the Algarve, one of the most important wetlands in this area of Portugal. In fact, Ria Formosa is one of the country's Seven Natural Wonders, thanks to its diverse variety of species, and especially of birds, which include white storks, flamingos, herons and many more...

You'll sail around the islands of Ria Formosa, visiting the oyster and clam beds and discovering curiosities about the shellfish industry, which is firmly rooted in the region.

At the end of your boat trip around Ria Formosa, you'll return back to the port in Faro.
