Natura Algarve

Boat trip to Parque Natural da Ria Formosa (from Olhão)

11.10.2013 // Natura Algarve

In October, Miss MZungu joined us and did our Natura Tour boat trip in the Ria Formosa Nature Park.

She then wrote a really nice article on her blog Miss MZungu’s Travels about her trip that we now share with our readers.

“There’s water taxis and ferries right next to the Grupo Naval do Olhão, but if you want a guided tour, Natura Algarve offers those for € 25 per person for 2,5 hours. They have the most comfortable boats and you’ll be accompanied by a multilingual guide (ours spoke French and English).

During the trip, you’ll see the oyster pickers and disembark on the fishermen’s island Ilha da Farol (also called the ‘lighttower island’) and Ilha Deserta.



The guide will tell you all about the ecosystem and the life of fishermen.

Natura Algarve also offers other tous like the Barrier Islands of Ria Formosa, the Birdwatching Tour and Dolphinwatching and Marine Wildlife Tour. This tour combines very well with a visit to Olhão’s famous fish market before or afterwards.”
