Amazing Boat Tour in Ria Formosa!
Sep 2021 • Couples
We had an amazing Boat Tour this morning in Ria Formosa with Sabino Boat Tours! Firstly, they waited for us while we had parking troubles, the lady who welcomed us was very nice and spoke german very well! Then we drove through Ria Formosa for 3 hours with a very nice group of 8 people all together.
Our Skipper Jaime (hope to write it correclty) was another highlight of the tour, he explained a lot of interesting facts to us and was very funny and charismatic. We can recommend this trip 1000%, thank you very much!

Lovely boat tour, exceptional guide
Aug 2021
Really enjoyed our three hour boat tour with Sabino boat tours. Reserving our places was really easy: my boyfriend just sent them a whatsapp message and we got an answer in a few moments.

The lady at that booth welcomed us in Dutch. Turned out she was from the Netherlands. A pleasant surprise we weren't expecting. Since we were a bit early for the start of the trip, she gave us some nice suggestions for taking a little walk in Olhäo.

The boat tour itself was lovely. Our captain and guide was very knowledgeable and gave us lots of information about Olhão and the nature reserve Ria Formosa. The tour included two stops: a short visit to the lovely fisherman's village on Ilha da Culatra and a chance to enjoy the beautiful beach Praia da Culatra and have a swim in the cold waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

A must do when visiting Olhão.

Excellent Tour
Very good tour for the price. 3 hours was just right to get to know a bit more of Ria Formosa

We had a great time and I would recommend it as the tour guide has spent his life in this area.

Boat tour of the lagoon and barrier islands off Ohlao
Jul 2020 • Family
We really enjoyed our boat trip with Jaime, learning a lot about the lagoon ecosystem and local livelihoods that depend on it. Kids loved the stop on an isolated beach on Culatra, and we enjoyed the fishing village too. Afternoon seems best as it cools off as you go along.

Fantastic 3hours boat trip and dolphin tour!
Jul 2020 • Family
We really enjoyed the 3 hours trip with Sabino Tours and Jaime made the trip very valuable and fruitful with a lot of information about Ria Formosa and we decided to book as well the Dolphin trip with Sabino Tours which was an unforgettable experience to see the dolphins in their natural surroundings and Joao/Jaime have been really nice guides in this tour and you feel that both of them are really enjoying to show you something. I can really recommend it!!!

Amazing day in “Bahamas”
Jun 2020 • Friends
The tour was amazing. The skipper is a super kind guy with a lot of experience of the sea and Ria Formosa. He gaved is a lot of interesting information about all the biodiversity of Ria Formosa. He taught us how important is to keep all this environment and showed us the most beautiful beaches you’ll ever imagine! It was like going to Bahamas without getting a plane.
Hope all of you can enjoy it as much as we did.
Thanks to Joäo for the hospitality.
