What People Are Saying About Algarve
If you are looking for a chance to view the coastline from the water, this three hour tour allows that opportunity, Along the way, the crew (sorry I do not remember his name) provides a running commentary about the many beaches seen, as well as about the various hotels and history of the area. The water was a bit choppy so we couldn't get in too close to the caves,as well as the fact that it is a large boat. This is not a party trip (bar on board though) or one from which you can enter the caves or jump off the boat to swim - but it is a great way to spend a few lovely hours at sea. We were blessed with beautiful weather. All five in our party enjoyed it very much.
Firstly I was met with a very friendly and welcoming host at the dock. It was a very beautiful day out on the water, exploring and discovering this beautiful region. Visiting a place that feels so untouched is special, especially when you are travelling and surrounded by hords of people in busy cities. Every stop was a beautiful, welcomed surprise. Thank you for taking good care of me.
We took an afternoon tour with my wife and two kids, 10 and 8. We all enjoyed every minute of it. Although 30 minutes stop on every island seemed disappointingly short itvwas long enough to raise the appetites for revisiting. And yes there are see taxis available to take you back to your favourite island another day. Special thanks should go to the stuff, our tour guide was a knowledgable and skillful skipper passionate about Ria Formosa lagoon. He gave us informative lectures about tides and the lagoon's live but didn't forget to entertain us and especially children with starfish and see cucumbers. Everybody could find something interesting to do during the tour. Children were hunting for the biggest shells ever, I was snorkelling others enjoyed exploring the islands or even steering the boat! Fantastic!
This was a fab boat trip. Very interesting and we have some fab pics of the caves to take home. The tour guides was very interesting and had a sense of humour! Would definitely recommend.
