Our bird watching trip near Faro with our personal guide Barbara was excellent.

It was also good to see salt mountains and associated birds! A highlight of our trip... More

Had a really nice out paddling around the sandy islands, expertly guided by friendly and knowledgeable David. I can't imagine there is any better way to get a feel of this unique nature reserve area that to head out there in a kayak. Very relaxing and fun experience, with just the right amount of exertion required. Cost €35 which made... More

Our experience in Faro was awsome, all because of the two hour long kayak tour in the park of Ria Formosa. The nature was beautiful, our guide David was supercool and made our day. Really relaxing and fun.

I would highly recommend the sea kayaking in Faro. Our fantastic guide, David, was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. A very patient and skilled instructor. We booked the 2 hour kayak tour in a double kayak. I would recommend the guided tour unless you are very experienced as the changing tides and narrow channels would be difficult to... More

My husband and I had a wonderful day of sailing on Ria Formosa with David (that's the Portuguese pronunciation, not the American). He is a very experienced sailor and such a great guide!
