Discover and enjoy the diversity of islands, villages and beaches of the Ria Formosa Natural Park in Olhão.
Departing at 12:30h from Olhão, this tour goes through the canals in front of Olhão and to the Barrier Islands that protect the Ria Formosa. On this tour you'll be able to see the Farol Bar and the Sta Maria Lighthouse in Farol Island, one of the 3 lighthouses in the Algarve. Following our course we´ll make a 1h 30 mins stop for lunch (price not included) in Culatra, a fisherman's vilage with nearly 1000 residents whose main economic activity is fishing. The Island has all the infrastructures you would expect in a normal town; shops, restaurants, school, church, medical office and so on. There´s even a football pitch and it´s own local team! During the break you can go for a nice lunch of fresh fish in one of the typical restaurants or go for a nice pic-nic at the beach.
Afterwards we'll continue the tour and go to Armona bay and island where we'll do another stop - this time for 30mins. Then return to Olhão passing close to several tuna factories and to the fishing harbour.
This is one of our most complete tours where you have the opportunity to see a larger area of the Ria Formosa and it´s beautifull islands in front of Olhão, that excel by their unique features and beauty.
The skipper will be your guide throughout the tour and will tell you all about the area, fauna and flora. We'll provide you with book guides and binoculars so you can have an even better experience.
