The company owns a small Marina 'Douro Fluvina' at Ferradosa - Sao Joao da Pesqueira.

Our boats are 28ft Yachts ideal for a couple or a family with children.

You can rent a Sail Yacht with our chalets that are a few meters way from the private pontoons.

The chalets are very near the boats, and supply added comfort for your stay on the boats with larger toilets and kitchen.

The Douro water way starts on the Atlantic coast at Porto and comprises five connected lakes that extend for 200 km to the border with Spain.

You can explore it with our boats and stop where ever you like, take tours by train along the valley, walk in the vineyards, visit farms and small towns or simply swim in the warm clear waters of the river.

Jose picked... more

Seldom do holidays exceed all expectations, but in the case of Dourovou we could not have had a better experience. The Douro is a perfect place to visit for a short sailing holiday, with an almost guaranteed breeze every afternoon and some mornings.

We woke up in the morning and could only listen to the birds! The view of the river and its valleys was spectacular. Jose was very kind, the boatrip he arranged was magical and we enjoyed it a lot! Thank you Jose! more
