We had the most amazing trip and Pudim, our experienced skipper, he was spectacular! Not only was he having to repeat himself 4 times in; Spanish, Portuguese, French and English, due to those on board but, he made sure we all felt involved and always updated us along the way. He gave us tips and places to visit when we stopped off on the islands being super friendly. We throughly enjoyed the experience so much and would definitely do it again. I highly recommend this trip to anyone and especially if you have Pudim as your Skipper!

Wonderful tour of the Lagon and clear description of the different species that are present. Free time in both islands that allowed us to visit them at our own pace. But there is a species that you absolutely need to meet that is full of knowledge, very didactic and super funny: it is Pedro the marine biologist who was our guide! He is the gem of Ria Farmosa. Thanks again for this unforgettable visit.

Me and my 10 year old daughter had the most perfect time together. At first we thought it would me a bit hard to find our balance on the Segway, but within less then 10min our guide proofed us wrong. It was such a fun thing to do and we specially enjoyed the route through nature, the addition information during the journey and of coarse seeing amazing contemporary architecture. We will be back!!!

Paulo was a brilliant guide and a very trusting and competent sailor. He let me helm his very speedy racing yacht out to Farol Island. All the whilst reassuring my non-sailor partner that his boat could never capsize. What a great morning sailing we had. Thanks Paulo, thoroughly recommend this trip for a little adventure.

Paulo is AMAZING> We learned so much and had the best time. He’s so patient and his English is perfect. I can’t recommend this enough, its an absolutely bargain for the experience we had. We’ll definitely book again next time we visit the Algarve
