Overview
This is boat trip to discover the lagoon of Ria Formosa This 45-minute boat trip is ideal for those who are passing by Faro and do not have much time, but still would like to know the Ria Formosa, one of the 7 Natural Wonders of Portugal.

This small-group tour is limited to 11 people, offering a more intimate experience.
