Our experience in Faro was awsome, all because of the two hour long kayak tour in the park of Ria Formosa. The nature was beautiful, our guide was supercool and made our day. Really relaxing and fun.

We had a wonderful experience kayaking in the Ria Formosa - doing some sports against the rising tide, get some information about the nature we're in, had a lot of fun and enjoyed the silence Organization was quite perfect, material is in a well maintained condition and at place in time. Staff is very friendly, instructed us in detail an we felt welcome and safe all the time. During the trip, there was enough time to talk, see, enjoy and having some interesting beaks at some of the islands. Alltogether we are very happy, that we had done this trip and can "strictly" recommend it!

We did the 2 hour kayak tour to Ria Formosa. The water was calm which allowed us to observe the surrounding nature. Although it also requires some focus to paddle the boat in the right direction and listen to the guide at the same time. ;-) Our guide was very friendly and he had a lot of knowledge about the area. He shared all kind of facts about the birds, sea grass, shark eggs, oyster shells... There was also time for a stroll along a secluded beach. We had a nice experience!
