My daughter (aged 29) and I (aged 65) had minimal experience of kayaking, but were able to paddle to the deserted beach and back. What fun! It was fascinating to see how landscape changed with the tide. We enjoyed the waves on the other side of the beach.

Our bird watching trip near Faro with our personal guide Barbara was excellent. We saw birds we did not expect to see such as Bitterns, Pochard, Little Grebes, Hoopoes and Yellow Wagtails, some of which are rare. Barbara was a knowledgeable and entertaining guide. 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.
