Overview
More
Fantastic, relaxing boat trips on a traditional wooden vessel, the Reis Jorge, along the Algarve coast to Carvoeiro meandering through the breathtaking caves. River trips along the Arade River, appreciating the magnificent flora and fauna on the way (ideal for keen birdwatchers), up to the historical city of Silves with it's Moorish castle and cathedral, or to Sitio das Fontes in Estombar. Tailormade trips and/or harbour excursions. Typical Portuguese fishing boat skippered by Ferragudo fisherman Luis. Takes up to 9 passengers and offers a great trip for all the family. Refreshments included. Private charters available.
