Full description
Enjoy a full-day boat tour around the Ria Formosa natural park and inside the great Atlantic Ocean. Your experience begins earlier in order to catch the dolphins in their environment. You'll search for them in the open sea, before observing their movements.

Following that you will stop at the first deserted beach for swimming and to enjoy the nature. You'll receive a decent amount of time to take pictures and have some fun inside the crystal clear water. As lunch time approaches you will visit one of the favorite local islands, Culatra Island, where you will enjoy a BBQ meal of fresh fish or meat, oysters, and local white wine. 

Following lunch, make the most of some free time to visit the island and taste the local homemade ice-cream or cakes. You can then enjoy the island of Farol, which is home to the best ocean beach in the Ria Formosa, which contains fun beach bars. At the conclusion of your day out on the water, you will be returned back to Olhão.
