Terrific introduction to the Ria Formosa. Supposed to be a 5-hour tour but was nearly 6-hours because the skipper was relaxed and let us enjoy our time at the various stops. Take the 10:00 a.m. tour and enjoy a great fresh fish lunch at Cafe Janoca at Ilha da Culatra. At Ilha do Farol wander over to the beach under the lighthouse and enjoy coffee or a cocktail at MarAmais tiki bar. Our skipper Louis had excellent English and French. Gave good overviews of the history and geography.

Nice experience with a very nice skipprr named Poutine. Nice talk and learned a lot about Faro and the ria de fermosa. Had a private tour from 1.5h, the tour was a little to short better to book a tour of 3h. But at all the experience it‘s worth it.
