Full description
Climb aboard your speed boat in Olhão and sail the Atlantic Ocean on a 2-hour cruise along the Algarve Coast. 

After leaving the Marina, the speed boat heads between 1 to 6 miles (1.6 km - 9.6 km) around Faro and Tavira, always along the coast, so you can view the landscaped scenery of the south coast of Portugal. Look for wild dolphins, usually a 90% chance of success, before heading to Ria Formosa Islands where you will land on Desert Beach.
