Meet your local crew at the Cais da Porta Nova in Faro.
Here you will come on board of the comfortable catamaran for a beautiful 6-hour

. This marine reserve is blessed with a distinct natural beauty, and many different rare bird species. If you love nature, a visit to the Ria Formosa is a must!
After some time cruising along the Ria Formosa, we will make our first stop at the Deserta Island. Here you can go off the boat to enjoy around 45 minutes on the island. There is also snorkeling equipment on board, so you can explore the magnificent underwater world. The second stop will be at Farol Island, where you can explore the famous lighthouse of Cabo de Santa Maria or relax at the beach during the 45 minutes on land.
After all this fun, the crew will take you to the highlight of the tour - the Salt Ponds of Ria Formosa. Here you can admire the production of Sea Salt and maybe even spot some flamingos.
