Originally wanted to go at sunset but due to weather conditions I was contacted by the company and promptly rescheduled to another time that worked for me. They were extremely responsive and accommodating. The tour was fun - saw 2 of the islands in the Rio Formosa.

We enjoyed the sunset boat trip with Ricardo who talked a bit about Ria Formosa National Park and took us to beautiful Faro Peninsula for a 15minute stop off.sunset on the way back was beautiful. Worth the money, friendly service and chat with Ricardo. Small catamaran..take your own drinks/snack if you want. We had 2 children with us 4&7, they really enjoyed it too. Sandra was there to meet us, great customer service all round. Nice little trip if u just want to get out on the water for a short trip.
