About Ferragudo Boat Trips
Fantastic, relaxing boat trips on a traditional wooden vessel, the Reis Jorge, along the Algarve coast to Carvoeiro meandering through the breathtaking caves. River trips along the Arade River, appreciating the magnificent flora and fauna on the way (ideal for keen birdwatchers), up to the historical city of Silves with it's Moorish castle and cathedral, or to Sitio das Fontes in Estombar. Tailormade trips and/or harbour excursions. Typical Portuguese fishing boat skippered by Ferragudo fisherman Luis. Takes up to 9 passengers and offers a great trip for all the family. Refreshments included. Private charters available.

A wonderful experience. Fascinating insight from Louis about his life over the last 50 years in Ferragudo and the changes. His knowledge of fishing and wildlife is incredible. Lovely boat trip and terrific lunch. A memorable day.

Yet another great trip with Luis I am not a lover of the water but i trust him 100% always put me at ease. His knowledge is just amazing not only do you get to look at stunning scenery you will learn so much about the history of Portugal which is just priceless. We went on the Silves trip today which was beautiful and we had enough time to explore the city the castle and museum not rushed at all. Luis was wonderful with our 4 year old. I could not ask for more if i could give 10 stars I would. We took friends that had never been inland and they loved it too.

We signed up for the Caves Tour with Luis, a retired local fisherman, who is a one-man captain, tour guide, local historian, and entertaining raconteur. His converted open fishing boat the Reis Jorge is one of the last wooden craft in Ferragudo and provides an authentic feel to the relaxing two hour tour along the coast to view the beautiful and dramatic cliffs and sea caves up close. Booking was easy to do on-line; we were greeted quayside on arrival by very cheery and helpful Paula. A definite must-do when in the western Algarve. Highly recommended.

Took a boat trip down the coast with Luis on the Reis Jorge, a converted local fishing boat. What a fantastic informative trip. We ambled along with Luis stopping and explaining all sorts of things that we had taken for granted, only to have it explained in detail by a local. We watched the 10 metre ribs fly by as we traversed close to the cliffs in and out of caves and coves. At 20 Euros each it was great value and an experience that we will value for ever.
