Full description
Discover the beauty of Faro’s coastline on this epic sea adventure that navigates along the Ria Formosa waters, passing between Deserta Island and Farol Island and across the Cape de Santa Maria. Marvel at scenic views where the waters of the Ria Formosa meet the Atlantic Ocean and gaze out towards the vastness of the open blue sea.

After a glide around Ria Formosa Natural Park, ride along the coast in search of a pod of dolphins swimming in their natural habitat. These magnificent creatures often spend their mornings feeding in the clear and crystalline waters off the coast of Faro. Although there is no guarantee that dolphins will be spotted on the trip, there is a 90% chance of finding the sea creatures.

After dolphin watching, begin discovering the islands. Head to Farol Island and then Culatra Island for lunch at a restaurant or an optional picnic. Then, discover the oyster culture on Hangares Island, before finally visiting Deserta Island for snorkeling.
